The Detroit Pistons have lost their third in a row. LeBron James’ fourth triple-double of the season lifted the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 113-101 victory in Auburn Hills last night. Richard Hamilton scored 24 points as one of six Pistons

in double figures.

Michigan guard Manny Harris says he hasn’t decided whether to return for his senior season or enter the NBA draft, and he’s not sure when he’ll make the choice. He previously said he’d be back, then declined comment on his future

twice this month.

It’s a loss for the Detroit Tigers in the Grapefruit League. Ryan Howard’s first homer of the spring helped the Philadelphia Phillies win 6-1 over Detroit. Justin

Verlander gave up a two-run drive to Howard, and Domonic Brown also connected against the Tigers ace.

Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford is no longer trying to fit in with the Lions. Now he’s the unquestioned top quarterback hoping free agent wide receiver Nate

Burleson will give him a second receiving threat and take pressure off Calvin Johnson.
