Daye's free throws lift Pistons over Cavs 90-89

Austin Daye's two free throws with 3.1 seconds left gave the Detroit Pistons a 90-89 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday night.

Daye, who finished with 19 points, was fouled driving to the basket after the Pistons stole an inbounds pass with Cleveland holding an 89-88 lead.

Luke Harangody missed a jumper for Cleveland at the buzzer.

Rodney Stuckey, who re-signed with the Pistons last week, scored 15 points in his first action of the preseason.

Omri Casspi had 18 points to lead the Cavaliers. Kyrie Irving, the No. 1 pick in this year's NBA draft, scored 11 points and had three assists in 25 minutes.

The Cavaliers defeated the Pistons 91-87 on Friday. Both teams open the regular season Dec. 26. The Pistons play at Indiana, while the Cavaliers host Toronto.
