Pistons rout Cavaliers 117-99

Updated:

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) - Brandon Knight had 20 points and 10 assists, and the Detroit Pistons never trailed Friday night in a 117-99 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Greg Monroe added 18 points and 16 rebounds for the Pistons, who played without newly acquired point guard Jose Calderon. After being traded from Toronto to Detroit earlier this week, the Spanish-born Calderon needed to resolve visa issues before he could play.

Knight, himself a point guard, might play off the ball more once Calderon is in the lineup. He made his first four shots against Cleveland, more than holding his own against Cavaliers star Kyrie Irving.

Tristan Thompson led Cleveland with 19 points.
