Detroit kept its flawless record intact with a 110-103 victory on Thursday over the winless Cleveland Cavaliers, who were missing their best player, Kevin Love.

"As competitors we want to win, but I thought there was some good out there tonight", Korver said.

The Pistons shot a terrible 18 percent (7-of-37) from 3-point range, while the C's shined from beyond the arc at a 41 percent clip.

The Cavaliers come to Detroit still smarting from back-to-back home losses and looking to turn things around by handing their longtime Central Division foes their first loss of the season.

Celtics: Aron Baynes, who played two seasons in Detroit, missed his third straight game with a right hamstring strain. Griffin's stats through three games impressive, including a league-leading 36.3 ppg, but the fact he's been able to generate this level of production while committing just two turnovers is truly remarkable.

Brown scored 19 points and Marcus Morris added 18 for the Boston Celtics in a 109-89 victory on Saturday night over the Detroit Pistons, who lost their first game of the season.

"We can't get too excited", Drummond said. Griffin and Drummond each tallied 26 points to lead all scorers. It remains to be seen whether local Laker fans will continue shelling out big bucks to attend games if the team falters this season.

The Young Bull fared better from the field, connecting on 6-of-10 attempts and adding three boards and an assist. The Pistons led the Cavaliers throughout the second half but couldn't pull away. At one point, Horford hit three 3-pointers in 41 seconds. "So we've got to take them win by win and game by game and just keep getting better".

Free throws by Jackson and Galloway put the Pistons up by nine before Sexton finished the scoring with a jumper.

In three games, Smith has tallied 11, 15 and 21 points - shooting 59 percent from the floor and 55 percent from beyond the arc.

Former No. 1 overall pick and five-time All-Star Blake Griffin looked like a different player when the Cavaliers faced Detroit at Michigan State during the preseason. He's a competitive guy, he's a fun guy.
