Cavs sweep Pistons in playoffs first round
Cold-blooded threes by Kyrie Irving and J.R. Smith were monumental in the Cavaliers sweeping the Pistons with the 100-98 victory Sunday night at the Palace.
For the series, Cleveland made 57 threes for the series, a little more than 14 per game.
Irving’s triples were of the spectacular variety.
His final one, with 43.2 seconds left and the shot clock running down, gave the Cavaliers a 100-96 cushion.
As the buzzer sounded, Irving waved good-bye to the Pistons crowd as he finished with 31 points and averaged 27.5 points per game for the series.
