GAME PREVIEW: Heat head to Detroit to take on Pistons

New, comments

The Heat look to stop their 3 game skid with a win against the Pistons tonight in Detroit

NBA: Detroit Pistons at Miami Heat Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Game Story:

The Heat are skidding. After dropping three winnable games in a row, they’re in Detroit tonight against a Pistons team who are actually in similar situation. The Heat really need a win, the new Vice jersey reveal today just isn’t enough. The Heat are too good to tank, but they need to start playing like a team who’s going to go to the postseason.

Last season, no matter what the score was I knew the Heat would fight back, I haven’t seen that resolve this season and it’s costing them.

Goran Dragic is back tonight so, the Heat should be able to put more points on the board.

Probable Starters

Miami: Goran Dragic, Rodney McGruder, Josh Richardson, Kelly Olynyk, Hassan Whiteside

Detroit: Andre Drummond, Blake Griffin, Stanley Johnson, Bruce Brown, Reggie Jackson
