No Darius Garland or Donovan Mitchell? No problem for the Cleveland Cavaliers, who put defensive tenacity on full display en route to their seventh win of the 2022-23 campaign. Hitting the road to face the Detroit Pistons, the Cavs block 13 shots during the game — ranging from an unforgiving Jarrett Allen rejection of a dunk attempt, a fingertip finesse denial by Lamar Stevens and an Evan Mobley block in the lane that turns into two quick transition points. Mobley and Kevin Love record blocks on back-to-back shots, while Mobley and Isaac Okoro double up for consecutive steals to keep the Detroit offense reeling. As Raul Neto shows, he’ll do whatever it takes to come up with a steal, even if it requires sacrificing his body to hit the hardwood. The Cavs added five thefts along with the double-digit block total in Cleveland’s 112-88 rout, forcing 18 turnovers and holding the Pistons to just .373 percent from the field on November 4, 2022.
