      Cavaliers 106, Pistons 101:

      Kyrie Irving scored 31 points in his first playoff game since being injured last year in the NBA Finals and Kevin Love added 28, leading Cleveland over Detroit Pistons on Sunday in Game 1 of their first-round playoff series.
      LeBron James added 22 points and 11 assists for the top-seeded Cavs. They are favored to win the Eastern Conference again but got all they could handle from the Pistons.
      Love, knocked out of the playoffs with a shoulder injury in the first round a year ago, made two critical 3-pointers in the fourth quarter.
      Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 21 points and Marcus Morris 20 — but just one after halftime — for the Pistons, making their first playoff appearance since 2009. Andre Drummond had 13 points and 11 rebounds.
      Detroit made 15 3-pointers, but the Pistons' playoff inexperience showed in the final minutes.
      Game 2 is Wednesday night in Cleveland.

      Heat 123, Hornets 91:

      Luol Deng scored 31 points on 11-for-13 shooting, Hassan Whiteside added 21 points and 11 rebounds in his postseason debut, and Miami routed Charlotte in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference series.
      Dwyane Wade scored 16 points in 26 minutes, Joe Johnson and Amare Stoudemire each had 11 points, and Goran Dragic finished with 10 assists.
      Miami scored 41 points in the first quarter to tie one franchise playoff record, set another with the 123 points — topping the 121 in the 2012 NBA Finals clincher against Oklahoma City — and never trailed.
      Nic Batum scored 24 points for the Hornets. Kemba Walker added 19.
      Game 2 is Wednesday night in Miami.
