Who’s Playing

Miami @ Detroit

Current Records: Miami 11-6; Detroit 4-12

What to Know

The Miami Heat will take on the Detroit Pistons at 7 p.m. ET Tuesday at Little Caesars Arena after having had a few days off. Given that both teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this matchup.

It was close but no cigar for the Heat as they fell 103-100 to the Washington Wizards this past Saturday. Point guard Kyle Lowry had a pretty forgettable game, finishing with only seven points on 3-for-12 shooting in his 36 minutes on the court.

Meanwhile, Detroit was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap on Sunday as they fell 121-116 to the Los Angeles Lakers. Detroit was up 99-84 at the end of the third quarter but couldn’t hold on to the lead. Power forward Jerami Grant put forth a good effort for the losing side as he shot 5-for-9 from downtown and finished with 36 points.

Miami is the favorite in this one, with an expected 9.5-point margin of victory. If their 12-5 record against the spread is anything to go by, the prospects look good for bets placed on them.

Miami is now 11-6 while Detroit sits at 4-12. Two defensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Heat enter the game with only 102.4 points allowed per game on average, good for third best in the league. Less enviably, the Pistons have allowed their opponents to shoot 48.10% from the floor on average, which is the highest shooting percentage allowed in the league. So the cards are definitely stacked against Detroit.
