Cleveland Cavaliers-Detroit Pistons Playoff Preview: Position-by-Position Breakdown

Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Detroit Pistons

4. Power Forward: Tobias Harris vs. Kevin Love

Tobias Harris vs. Kevin Love

Tobias Harris is a really intriguing young player who has shown real flashes of brilliance in his five seasons in the league. Since joining Detroit on Feb. 19, Harris has been averaging 16.6 points, 6.2 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game. He is also shooting 47.7-percent from the floor and 37.5-percent from downtown.

But again the Pistons are outmatched by an All-Star. Kevin Love, much like James, is coming into the playoffs on a tear after a recent discussion with Lue. In the nine games since the meeting where Lue referred to Love as a “bad m—–f—–,” Love has been averaging 18.9 points per game and has hit 46.2-percent of his 3-point attempts.

Simply put, Love is the all-around better player, especially if his most recent play continues into this series.

Advantage: Cleveland Cavaliers

Next: Center
