Game Preview: Heat take on the Pistons at home

New, comments

The Heat are back in Miami tonight to take on the Pistons at 7:30 PM

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

Game Story:

The Heat is in an weird spot right now. They’ve shown how good they can be, and what buying into he culture can accomplish, but they’ve also faced unprecedented amounts of drama over the last few days (see Dion’s airplane scare). They’re also facing a lot of nagging injuries to key players (Justise Winslow, Kelly Olynyk, Derrick Jones Jr, Tyler Herro) despite having a lot of off time since last Friday’s loss.

It will be interesting to see if they can rally and come out strong against a Pistons team who just got Blake Griffin back.

Probable Starters:

Heat:

  • Jimmy Butler
  • Bam Adebayo
  • Meyers Leonard
  • Duncan Robinson
  • Kendrick Nunn

Pistons:

  • Tony Snell
  • Blake Griffin
  • Andre Drummond
  • Luke Kennard
  • Bruce Brown
