CLEVELAND — Darius Garland tied his season-high with 21 points and rookie power forward Evan Mobley had 16 points and seven rebounds, leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 98-78 victory over the Detroit Pistons.

Third overall selection Mobley also blocked two shots and made a steal in winning his first NBA matchup with Pistons shooting guard Cade Cunningham, the top overall pick, who had nine points, six rebounds and a pro-high seven turnovers. Cedi Osman scored 17 points and Jarrett Allen had 11 points and seven rebounds for the Cavs (8-5), who led by 27 early in the fourth quarter.

The Pistons (2-9) were held to a season-low in points and shot a dismal 36.7% from the field. Forward Jerami Grant led the team with 16.

The red-hot Cavaliers will be back in action Saturday night when they host the hated Boston Celtics at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse.
