This is the teams’ second meeting in six days. … The Pistons have won the last three by an average of 20.5 ppg. … In other words, for a team that’s not any good, the Pistons sure have owned a decided advantage lately. … Cavs G Dion Waiters (ankle) remains doubtful. … Anderson Varejao scored a season-low four points in a loss Friday at Minnesota, ending his streak of consecutive double-doubles at 10. … Varejao also grabbed 14 rebounds.
