NBA: Pistons thrash Cavs for fifth straight home win

PISTONS HEATING UP:Although 1-10 on the road, the Detroit Pistons are 5-3 at home and their performance is improving after a very shaky start to the NBA season


Kenneth Faried hit one of two free throws with 5.8 seconds left and DeMar DeRozan missed a long three at the buzzer.

Faried had 18 points and 10 rebounds. Six players scored in double figures for Denver.


In Salt Lake City, Utah, Blake Griffin scored 30 points, Jamal Crawford added 20 off the bench and Los Angeles handed Utah their first loss at home this season.

Crawford made a pair of free throws late and ex-Clipper Randy Foye countered with a three-pointer with 1.2 seconds remaining. However, Foye’s desperation 3 after stealing the ensuing inbounds pass missed its mark.

Mo Williams led the Jazz against his former team with 20 points and 12 assists. Foye added 19 points and Al Jefferson had 16 points and 10 rebounds but had a layup blocked by DeAndre Jordan with 26 seconds left that would have tied the score at 101.
