The Pistons have dropped four of their last five games. So have the Cavaliers, including a 106-96 defeat at Chicago on Saturday.

The loss to the Bulls began a stretch where Cleveland plays five of six games on the road.

The Cavaliers are on the fringes of the expanded playoff race, trying to get one of the 10 Eastern Conference seeds.

They fell behind by 16 points in the second half to the Bulls, and a late run came up short.

“We’re all in this cluster. Every game matters right now. They’re in the cluster with us,” guard Darius Garland said of the Bulls. “They’ve got the 10th seed right now; they’ve got the target on their back. We wanted this game really bad.”

The Cavaliers have 16 games remaining, and veteran power forward Kevin Love hopes that his teammates learned something from Saturday’s uneven effort. They’ll get another shot at the Bulls on Wednesday. First, they need to take care of business against the team at the bottom of the conference.

“I want it to be painful for them because a lost opportunity like that, it should hurt,” Love said. “You want it to be learning experiences, and sometimes those learning experiences can pull on your heart and be very painful. It’s a major factor for growth.”
