After a recent five-game losing streak, the Cleveland Cavaliers appear to be getting back on track.
They have won five of their last six contests, which includes their latest victory, which came over the Detroit Pistons on Sunday.
The Pistons may be the worst team in the NBA, yet it wasn’t exactly an impressive performance for Cleveland, as it scored just 102 points, shot only 42.9 percent from the field and won by just eight points.
Donovan Mitchell went 9-of-23 while Darius Garland really struggled, going 4-of-19, making this an unsatisfying win for Cavs fans.
Still, this fan praised Isaac Okoro for coming up with a key stop in crunch time that helped Cleveland secure a win.
What a defensive stop by Okoro, with the #Cavs leading by 5pts and 1:35 remaining. He was all over that shot attempt and rebound.
Cavaliers leading the #Pistons 99-92 with 1:16 to go after a pair of Spida free-throws, he’s got 32pts.#LetEmKnow

This fan is also grateful for the victory, but he also criticized the schedule-makers for giving the Cavs some tough games so early in the season.
Good Cavs Win! Who makes up the NBA schedule it’s brutal! For instance, why do we have to play Milwaukee 2x on the road in the first month of the season? Why do we have to play Toronto 2x on the road in the first month of the season? These games should be spread out more!

Evan Mobley had 20 points on 8-of-12 shooting, plus 13 rebounds, and he even made both of his attempts from 3-point range.
This fan wants Mobley to be more assertive when it comes to taking perimeter shots.
I want to see Mobley letting it fly more. He doesn't take nearly enough to get into a rhythm and him finding his touch anywhere on the floor outside of the paint could take this offense to another level.

In the fourth quarter, Cedi Osman took a nasty fall, and this fan, among others, pointed out something very odd and hilarious that happened right after Osman hit the hardwood.
Aliens were doing a great job of hiding in plain sight until @cediosman. They are tall and their blood is yellow. #CediOsman #Pistons https://t.co/yiqXLq2DNA

No Rest For The Cavs
Cleveland will be right back at it again on Monday, as it will travel north of the border to take on the Toronto Raptors.
This won’t be an easy matchup, as the Raptors are 10-9 and defeated the Cavs on opening night in Canada.
