CLEVELAND -- Led by a career-high 29 points from Andre Drummond, the Detroit Pistons earned a season sweep of the Cleveland Cavaliers Wednesday night with a 111-104 victory at Quicken Loans Arena.

Drummond, who was taken ninth overall in last year's NBA Draft, finished 10-of-11 shots from the floor and also collected 11 rebounds for the Pistons, who won all four matchups in a season with Cleveland for the first time since the 2002-03 season.

Greg Monroe added 23 points and eight rebounds, Rodney Stuckey dropped in 18 points to go with seven assists and Will Bynum netted 16 off the bench for Detroit. The Pistons have won back-to-back games after dropping eight straight.

Kyrie Irving had 27 points and nine assists, but missed a crucial free-throw in the final minute for the Cavaliers. Tristan Thompson recorded 19 points and eight rebounds and Dion Waiters, taken five spots ahead of Drummond in last year's draft, tallied 11 off the bench.

The Cavaliers have now lost three-straight games and are just 14-25 at home on the campaign.
