NEW YORK (AP) — Lately, it seems as though the Brooklyn Nets just can’t get enough home cooking.
“You feel comfortable when you have dinner at your house, rather than when you go to someone else’s house and don’t know what they’re going to cook,” Nets forward Paul Pierce said.
Shaun Livingston scored 23 points, Mirza Teletovic made six 3-pointers and added 20 off the bench, and the Nets beat the Detroit Pistons 116-104 on Friday night for their 15th straight victory at Barclays Center.
The Nets went 15 for 31 from behind the arc.

ATLANTA (AP) — A hot-shooting night has the Atlanta Hawks back in sole possession of a playoff spot.
Poor shooting cost the Cleveland Cavaliers in a game they desperately needed.
Mike Scott ended a scoring slump with 26 points and the Hawks beat Cleveland 117-98 on Friday night in a costly setback for the Cavaliers’ late-season playoff push.
Atlanta moved one game ahead of the New York Knicks, who lost to Washington 90-89, in the race for the eighth playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

Indians down Twins, 7-2 in home-opener (4-4-14) PDF Print E-mail

CLEVELAND (AP) — Nick Swisher hit a two-run homer in the sixth inning, two batters after Yan Gomes connected for a solo shot, leading the Cleveland Indians to a 7-2 home-opening win over the Minnesota Twins on Friday.
Swisher’s homer off Mike Pelfrey (0-1) allowed the Indians to cap a day of pomp and pageantry as they celebrated Progressive Field’s 20th anniversary. Before the sixth, the Indians had been shut out by Pelfrey and were in danger of disappointing a sellout crowd that stuck around following a 2-hour, 13-minute rain delay and plummeting temperatures.
Indians reliever Josh Outman (1-0) recorded two outs after coming in for Danny Salazar in the sixth and got the win.
Swisher added an RBI double and Michael Brantley hit a two-run single in Cleveland’s four-run seventh that broke it open.

NEW YORK (AP) — Lucas Duda made the Mets look awfully smart, for one night at least.
Duda hit a pair of two-run homers only hours after the team gave him the starting job at first base, and New York beat the Cincinnati Reds 4-3 Friday behind Jenrry Mejia for its first victory of the season.
“I’m just glad to play and contribute any way I can,” said the soft-spoken Duda. “It’s just one day.”
Replacement closer Jose Valverde struck out Jay Bruce with two on to end it, and the Mets avoided their first 0-4 start since opening with five consecutive losses in 2005.

DETROIT (AP) — Miguel Cabrera reached another milestone in powerful fashion: a four-hit day highlighted by a home run for his 2,000th hit.
“I never expected I was going to hit 1,000 hits,” the 30-year-old slugger said after the game. “I never expect something personal. I expect to go out there and ... try to find a way to help my teammates.”
Cabrera capped his big day with an eighth-inning homer, and the Detroit Tigers rolled to a 10-4 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Friday. Cabrera’s two-run drive made him the ninth player to reach 2,000 hits before turning 31.
“Miguel and I have combined for over 3,000,” said Brad Ausmus, the former catcher who is now Detroit’s manager. “We’re a Hall of Famer, combined.”
Rajai Davis and Torii Hunter also homered for the Tigers. Drew Smyly (1-0) relieved Anibal Sanchez after a fourth-inning rain delay and pitched three scoreless innings.
