Detroit Pistons vs Cleveland Cavaliers Prediction & Match Preview – November 12th, 2021 | NBA Season 2021-22
The Detroit Pistons took a breather with a win over the Houston Rockets and will now head to Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse to face the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The Pistons had their best performance of the season, albeit against one of the youngest and worst teams in the NBA. Jerami Grant and Cade Cunningham featured their most notable games of the season, which were the main reasons for the victory.
The Detroit Pistons will need more of the same against the improved Cleveland Cavaliers.
The J.B. Bickerstaff lost one very close to the Washington Wizards, one of the best teams in the East at the moment. The head coach, however, would be pleased with how much the Cleveland Cavaliers have developed within weeks of the season.
The Cavaliers are proving they are real with impressive wins and close losses against many of the league’s elite teams. Losing Collin Sexton to injury will affect their campaign down the road, but they have other players who are eager to step up and contribute.
The game between the Detroit Pistons and the Cleveland Cavaliers will also mark the first time that Cade Cunningham and Evan Mobley will go head-to-head. They were 1 and 3 in this year’s NBA draft. Mobley is off to a spectacular start, while Cunningham has struggled after an injury derailed his preparation.

Pistons vs Cavaliers match prediction
The Detroit Pistons will be boosted by their victory over the Houston Rockets to end their four-game losing streak. They will also be encouraged by the clear improvements Cade Cunningham has shown in the few games he has played this season. Grant and Cunningham deliver a good 1-2 punch on offense.
The Cleveland Cavaliers, even without three of their biggest players, are still a tough team to eliminate. His entire list has carried out what J.B. Bickerstaff is trying to develop. They also have better chemistry and execution on offense and defense. The Cavs could give the Detroit Pistons another L on their record.
