Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said Love tried to play through the soreness and wanted to stay on the floor because the team has been struggling. Detroit is 4-0 for the first time since the 2008-09 season.

Russell Westbrook had 13 points, 15 rebounds and eight assists, though only landed five for 20.

Jordan Clarkson has been doing it all season long and he was red-hot on Thursday night - finishing with 18 points on 8-of-12 shooting, including 2-of-4 from deep. The Thunder and Cleveland Cavaliers are the only winless teams in the National Basketball Association.

The Pistons scored the first six points of the game before the Cavaliers scored the next 11. Detroit was able to close out the game after that.

Andre Drummond had 26 points and 22 rebounds, and the Pistons remained unbeaten with a 110-103 victory Thursday night. After being listed as inactive for the first two games, Williams - the 27th pick in the 2018 NBA Draft - has been active for the both of the games that Baynes has missed. Their first three victories were secured by a combined six points.

The Cavaliers dropped to 0-5 to start a season for the first time since 2003, Lebron James' rookie campaign. Jamal Murray scored 22 points and Monte Morris had 20, but Denver couldn't answer the Lakers' rally led by James, who posted his third career triple-double in Staples Center for his third different team. Cleveland fell to 0-and-5 on the season, including 0-and-3 on the road.

The point guard notched 34 of his 41 points after halftime in a record haul for a Trail Blazers' player against Orlando.

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.

Oklahoma led 50-34 at halftime after Boston had shot just 32 per cent and missed all 11 three-point attempts. At one point, Horford hit three 3-pointers in 41 seconds.
