    Auburn Hills, MI (SportsNetwork. Desmond King Jersey .com) - Kyrie Irving had 38 points and six assists, LeBron James added 32 points, seven assists and six rebounds and the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Detroit Pistons 103-95 on Tuesday night. James and Irving were the only double-digit scorers for Cleveland, which has won seven straight games on the heels of a six-game slide. Tristan Thompson pulled down 12 boards off the bench in the triumph. Its not about winning ball games, its about winning every day and thats part of the process. Kyrie has taken that full storm, James said. Greg Monroe posted 17 points and 12 rebounds, while D.J. Augustin provided 19 points and nine helpers for the Pistons, who have dropped three consecutive contests. Andre Drummond tallied 12 points and 17 boards. For the most part I thought their defensive pressure and quickness gave us some pressure, Detroit coach Stan Van Gundy said. The game was tied 35-35 late in the second quarter before the Cavaliers ripped off eight straight points. Irving nailed a 3-pointer, Kevin Love made a layup following an Irving steal, Shawn Marion converted a hook shot and James split a pair of foul shots for a 43-35 advantage. James jumper in the waning seconds of the half staked Cleveland to a 47-39 cushion heading into the break. After Monroes three-point play clawed Detroit within 58-53 during the middle stages of the third, the Cavs responded with a 15-5 run. J.R. Smith and Irving capped the surge with treys for a commanding 73-58 margin at the 3:07 mark of the frame. Cleveland was up 75-64 going into the fourth, where Detroit was unable to trim the gap below six. Detroit held a 19-17 edge following a quarter of play. Game Notes The Cavs improved to 25-12 with James on the floor. They are 1-8 without him ... Detroit played its second game without Brandon Jennings, who will miss the rest of the season after rupturing his Achilles Saturday against the Milwaukee Bucks ...

Harrison Barnes had 15 points and Reggie Bullock scored 11 for the Tar Heels (17-3, 4-1 ACC), who took the court for the first time without starter Dexter Strickland.

I think you want to play as close as you to can to how youre going to play the first game of the season, said the veteran winger. You want to be close to the top of your play as a team and as individuals.Everybodys gearing up to that first game.The Canucks wrap up their exhibition schedule Saturday night at home against the Edmonton Oilers before the regular season gets underway Wednesday in Calgary against the Flames.Players and coaches probably look at (the pre-season finale) a little different, Vancouver head coach Willie Desjardins said after Fridays practice at Rogers Arena. I want to see it as This is how were going to play. The players probably see it as I want to get out of this healthy.I want to push us and I want us to have a good game.Saturday will mark a final tuneup for some players, while for others it will be a last chance to make an impression with Vancouvers decision makers.Im looking to ramp it right up, said Canucks forward Zack Kassian, who has missed time with a lower-body injury. Its one more until the real deal starts, so theres no sitting back. Theres no feeling it out.Linden Vey has bounced between centre and the wing during pre-season a€” as well as playing on the first power-play unit a€” and looks to have cemented a job with the Canucks after being acquired in a trade with the Los Angeles Kings.Its the last one so you want to make sure to bring your best effort. This is what everybodys been gearing up for all summer, said Vey. Were looking forward to it. This is the time of year you want to be playing. This is the last chance to get everything ready to go for the start of the year.Canucks goalie Miller, who like Vrbata signed with the team in the off-season, said hes still getting comfortable in the crease and is learning the tendencies of his teammates a€” especially the defencemen.I think were moving in the right direction and I just want to keep doing my part, said Miller. Theres always more to do. Its never finished, so its always going to be a process but its feeling good a€” just getting things underway here has been exciting.Trying to have good intensity, good focus, get things movingg and get your mind right for the regular season. Kyle Emanuel Jersey. n the other side is Nicklas Jensen, who is still with the big club but remains in a tenuous position. He and fellow forward Bo Horvat a€” who suffered a shoulder contusion on Thursday in Edmonton that isnt considered serious a€” are battling for a spot up front.And with Horvat on the shelf for a few days, Jensen has one more chance to impress.Im happy with how Ive played, said the 21-year-old Dane. Theres some stuff I know I could have done a little bit better and I wanted to change, but theres also some stuff Im very happy about. The fact that Ive been consistent over all the games has been good.Desjardins said he has been impressed with how all the youngsters have competed.(Jensen) has been pretty good all year. He skates well, hes opened up ice well, said the rookie coach. He hasnt looked out of place, but I think you could say the same with Bo Horvat. He hasnt looked out of place either.Our lineup should be hard to crack. It should be tough for guys to get in. The good thing is these guys are pushing hard and theyre making the choices harder.One of those choices was to send Hunter Shinkaruk down to the AHLs Utica Comets on Friday. A former first-round pick like both Jensen and Horvat, the Canucks felt the 19-year-old forward needed more time to develop.Hes got to get a more all-around game, said Desjardins. I thought he was good offensively. I thought there were times that he showed real well and thats what we want out of him. We want him to be a guy that loves to score, a guy thats quick on the attack, and I think he showed those things. But he needs more experience at the pro level.To get his game to the best it can be he needs a little more time.Like a lot of young players, Desjardins said the defensive side of the game is something Shinkaruk needs to work on, and that the demotion should be a positive for his development in the long run.What you want as a young player is when you get (to the NHL) you want to be able to stay, said Desjardins. You dont want to come up and then lose your confidence and then get sent down because that could really hurt your career. I think hell get more confidence the next time hes up by playing down in the American Hockey League. Cheap Braves Jerseys Cheap Rangers Jerseys Cheap Mariners JerseysCheap Athletics Jerseys Cheap Angels Jerseys Cheap Astros Jerseys Cheap Twins Jerseys Cheap Royals Jerseys Cheap Tigers Jerseys Cheap Indians Jerseys Cheap White Sox Jerseys Cheap Blue Jays Jerseys Cheap Rays Jerseys Cheap Yankees Jerseys Cheap Orioles Jerseys ' ' '
