By Jason Lloyd Published: March 28, 2012

CLEVELAND: Kyrie Irving and Antawn Jamison combined for more than half of the points, but the Cavs stumbled to their fifth consecutive loss with an 87-75 loss to the Pistons on Wednesday.

Tayshaun Prince tied a season high with 29 points and Detroit scored 11 of the game's final 15 points to end a four-game losing streak to the Cavs. The Pistons won despite scoring just 38 points in the second half, but the Cavs shot just 35 percent for the game.

Irving had 22 points, nine rebounds and six assists and Jamison added 17 points. But the Cavs got just 19 points out of their reserves to lose for the eighth time in nine games.

The Cavs tied a season-low in points, while the Pistons broke 80 points for the first time in four
