"We have to make shots", coach Tyronn Lue said.

James scored 45 points in Game 7 and the Cavaliers survived their toughest test in reaching the NBA Finals for the fourth straight season.

Blake Griffin and Andre Drummond have combined to average 52.3 points, 27.8 rebounds, 6.0 assists, 2.1 blocks and 1.1 steals per game, both players dominating in different ways.

Love, 30, will miss his first game of the young season. Cleveland, which was without injured star Kevin Love, fell to 0-5 for the first time since 2003-04, when LeBron James was a rookie.

Cleveland trailed just 97-91 after a Jordan Clarkson 3-pointer with 9:17 remaining before the Pacers countered with an eight-point flurry, with Darren Collison providing two of the four baskets.

The Pistons scored the first six points of the game before the Cavaliers scored the next 11.

Rodriguez returns after throwing just six pitches in striking out Joc Pederson for the final out of the fifth inning Friday. Muncy would decide the issue five innings later after both teams had nearly emptied their lineups using nine pitchers each.

Back-to-back games against the preseason favorite in the Eastern Conference should tell the unbeaten Detroit Pistons how good they really are. Drummond added 22 rebounds and Griffin, who was coming off a career-high 50-point effort earlier in the week against Philadelphia, added 10 boards.

The Celtics hit nine 3-pointers in the third quarter after failing to make one in the first half.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have certainly lost a big part of their appeal with the departure of LeBron James to Los Angeles.but this is ridiculous.

Detroit's next two games are against the Celtics. Stephenson finished with 12 points.

In Orlando, Damian Lillard's second-half scoring spree helped propel Portland to a 128-114 victory. The Thunder and Cleveland Cavaliers are the only winless teams in the league.

Oklahoma City led 50-34 at halftime. Cleveland is being outscored by 12.8 points per 100 possessions (which is the worst in the NBA), and they are in the bottom six in effective field goal percentage, true shooting percentage and assist-to-turnover margin, per NBA.com.
