Cavs' Love to miss against Pistons with sore left foot

LOS ANGELES (AP) - LeBron James had 28 points, 11 assists and 11 rebounds while leading the Los Angeles Lakers' late rally for his first home victory at Staples Center over the previously unbeaten Denver Nuggets on Thursday night. Collison, Myles Turner and Sabonis each scored 15 points while Thaddeus Young added 10.

Griffin ranked second among the NBA's scoring leaders at 33.8 points per game heading into Friday's action after posting 26 points against the Cavaliers.

"He tried to play through it understanding we hadn't won a game and we were struggling a little bit", coach Tyronn Lue said.

Blake Griffin scored 26 points in his first game since a 50-point night against Philadelphia on Tuesday. Stephenson finished with 12 points.

Drummond has been an elite rebounder with 17.8 points per game (ranks first in the league) and has been particularly impactful on the offensive glass (6.0 offensive rebounds per game).

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.

Sabonis made another layup and Oladipo's 3-pointer with 3:58 left pushed the lead to 113-98.

Lillard and McCollum re-entered the game with 7:54 left after Orlando cut a 13-point deficit to just 102-99 on Gordon's second 3-pointer of the quarter. The Cavaliers were outrebounded 48-to-30 in defeat. Russell Westbrook had 13 points, 15 rebounds and eight assists, but he shot 5 for 20.

Boston nailed seven of their first 10 three-pointers in the third quarter to get back on track - Al Horford was on target three times from outside the arc in just 41 seconds. Detroit's offense lacked rhythm in the early going, but Stanley Johnson's 11 first-quarter points kept his team within striking distance.

Oklahoma led 50-34 at halftime after Boston had shot just 32 per cent and missed all 11 three-point attempts.
