The Cavs return home Saturday to face the Indiana Pacers.

Per The Athletic's Jay King, Boston Celtics center Aron Baynes has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Detroit Pistons as he continues to recover from a hamstring strain. Neither franchise has high hopes for the season, but it's still early, and the contest was only Cleveland's second at home. Russell Westbrook had 13 points, 15 rebounds and eight assists, but he shot 5 for 20.

CJ McCollum also had 22 for the Trail Blazers and Jusuf Nurkic added 18 points and 10 rebounds.

The Pistons overwhelmed visitors Cleveland on the boards, 48-30, to overcome 20 turnovers.
