"It's good for our team, good for our morale, but we know that there's bigger mountains to climb down the road", said Casey, who was hired to coach the Pistons this past offseason.
The Pistons are 4-0 for the first time since the 2008-09 season.
Jordan Clarkson has been doing it all season long and he was red-hot on Thursday night - finishing with 18 points on 8-of-12 shooting, including 2-of-4 from deep. The Thunder and Cleveland Cavaliers are the only winless teams in the league.
James dominated with 28 points, 11 assists and 11 rebounds in his 74th career triple-double - the first with his new team. The guards combined to score 22 of Portland's final 26 points to seal the win. Reggie Jackson added 16 points for the Pistons. The Pistons were up 12 heading into the fourth. Detroit was able to close the game out after that.
Fans had every reason not to show up to this game, because the players didn't. Cleveland may boast a positive attendance record of 19,432 tickets sold through two games, but that doesn't reflect how many seats were actually filled at the onset of the contest.More news: 1 winning ticket in SC claims $1.6 billion Mega Millions jackpot
Korver was one of four Cleveland backups who scored in double figures. In 25 minutes off the bench on Thursday night, Sexton finished with 14 points, going 5-of-9 from the floor and 4-of-5 from the stripe, adding a career-best five assists and a pair of steals.
The (1-3) Lakers have struggled out the gate this season with LeBron. Totals 41-89 13-15 103. Boston shot just 32 percent in the first half and missed all 11 of its 3-point attempts. Blake Griffin also had 26 points while grabbing 10 boards for Detroit.
Boston nailed seven of their first 10 three-pointers in the third quarter to get back on track - Al Horford was on target three times from outside the arc in just 41 seconds.
