INDIANAPOLIS - Andrew Luck is embarking on the most critical part of the season. Custom Buccaneers Jerseys .He has two games to find solutions to the Colts problems before the playoffs, and theres still too much at stake for the Colts to go into full tuneup mode.Its, Lets go out and win. We need to win, Luck said Wednesday. Theres no holding back, theres no easing off the gas pedal.In his short NFL career, Luck has learned momentum matters in the post-season.Indianapolis (10-4) heads to NFC East-leading Dallas (10-4) on Sunday with a four-game winning streak. A win would give Luck the longest winning streak of his career and could keep Indys fading hopes alive for a first-round bye.Yet he still has plenty to prove.Despite leading the NFL with 4,492 yards passing and 38 touchdown passes and wrapping up his second straight AFC South crown, Luck is just 1-2 in the playoffs.A year ago, Lucks miscues were the problem. He threw three interceptions in a stunning comeback against the Chiefs and four more in a lopsided loss at New England.So during the off-season, Luck tried to figure out what went wrong and came back this summer hoping to reduce what he often referred to as bone-headed mistakes.Recently, though, the problems have resurfaced.Indy has had 29 penalties and 12 turnovers over the past four weeks, with opposing defences scoring three times off those turnovers. Yet Indy has still won each game.While the miscues cannot all be blamed on Luck, the Colts quarterback is tied for the league lead with 12 fumbles and six lost and has the third-highest interception total (14) in the NFL.If that continues, the Colts know the deep playoff run theyve been hoping for could be short-lived.Obviously weve got things to clean up. Weve had issues with turnovers, nobody likes that, coach Chuck Pagano said. Weve had issues with penalties. Weve left yards out on the field because of penalties. Weve stalled drives because of penalties. Weve kept (opponents) drives alive because of penalties.If were going to go where we want to go and get to where we want to get to weve got to keep addressing those things and get them cleaned up, he added.So rather than looking ahead to the post-season, as Colts teams have done in the past, Pagano and Luck are going full-steam ahead.While Indys defence has played well in victories over Jacksonville, Washington, Cleveland and Houston, and the Colts improved ground game has helped seal three of those victories, Pagano is hoping to see even better results over the final two regular-season games.Its going to be a heck of a challenge to see exactly where were at, Pagano said when asked about Dallas. The whole idea is to stay consistent and go play well, play better than we did last week.Pagano doesnt intend to sit any healthy starters.And Luck, for one, doesnt want the rest. Hed rather fight through the miscues, find solutions and keep extending the Colts winning streak.We know weve got to keep improving and it starts in practice when it comes to cleaning up the mistakes, Luck said. We have a chance to go out and play a good football team this Sunday and try and execute. Thats huge.Notes: Receiver T.Y. Hilton (hamstring), right tackle Gosder Cherilus (groin), cornerback Vontae Davis (groin), offensive linemen Joe Reitz (ankle) and Hugh Thornton (knee) and linebacker Erik Walden (knee) all missed Wednesdays practice with injuries.

CLEVELAND -- Dont ask Maurice Cheeks why his team is so successful away from home. The Detroit Pistons coach cant explain it. "I dont have any theories why that is," he said. "I just dont know."

"We know we have to stick together when their crowds get going and they go on runs." The Pistons went on plenty of runs in their latest road success.

The Cavaliers had shown signs of progress earlier this month, winning three straight and five of six.

Smith was 10 of 18 from the field and had eight rebounds and three assists in 31 minutes. "Working in the paint is the strength in our game, so Im making a conscious effort to not settle for shots," Smith said. "Im used to being a little selfish, but I can be a distributor when other guys get hot." Jennings directed the offence with 13 assists. Drummond had 14 points and 11 rebounds while Greg Monroe scored 11 points and had 11 rebounds. Reserves from both teams played most of the fourth quarter. Thompson scored 17 points for the Cavaliers. Cleveland played without guard Dion Waiters, the teams second-leading scorer, for the third straight game because of tendinitis in his right wrist. Brown is still searching for answers to get his team to play with more consistency. The loss was Clevelands biggest at home since a 125-90 defeat against San Antonio on April 3, 2012. "I dont know if we mentally understand what it takes to keep doing this every time we step out on the floor," he said. "Were getting hit in the mouth right now and Im interested to see if we can respond the right way." The Pistons have won seven in a row against the Cavaliers, including four straight in Cleveland. Cheeks coached his 600th career game. He has also coached for Portland and Philadelphia.
