Kyle Korver led Cleveland with 21 points.

The Cleveland Cavaliers going 0-5 to start the year is still hard to believe, considering the team isn't quite as talent-deprived as it was back when the first time LeBron James left, as we've mentioned throughout the last few months.

CJ McCollum also had 22 for the Trail Blazers and Jusuf Nurkic added 18 points and 10 rebounds.

The Pistons announced that an MRI of Kennard's right shoulder revealed an AC joint sprain. Sixth man Jordan Clarkson (16.8 points per game) and starting small forward Cedi Osman (14.8 points per game) are the team's next two highest-scorers while both George Hill and Rodney Hood are averaging 11.3 points per game.

It has been tough sledding thus far for the Cavs with or without Love, as they have lost three out of their five first games by double-digit margins.

The Pistons overwhelmed visitors Cleveland on the boards, 48-30, to overcome 20 turnovers.
