The Miami HEAT fell 107-97 to the Detroit Pistons Tuesday night at AmericanAirlines Arena. The loss snaps the HEAT's 10-game winning streak. Miami now heads on the road for a four-game road trip.

 

Impact Performance of the Night: LeBron James was the best player on the floor tonight, scoring 23 points, dishing out six assists and grabbing five rebounds. James hit jumpers and got to the rim, showing off all of his skills. It wasn’t in a winning effort, but James played well when asked to carry a large load. Down the stretch James kept finding HEAT shooters for open threes, they just couldn’t get any of the looks to fall.

 

The Deciding Run: The HEAT cut a huge deficit to just three points with a huge run in the fourth quarter, but they would get no closer. The Pistons went on an 11-3 run to close things out and defeat the HEAT. Detroit got a big three from Brandon Jennings to start things off and capped the run on an offensive putback by Andre Drummond.

 

Play of the Game: Brandon Jennings hit a huge three-pointer with 4:09 left that really hurt the HEAT. After closing the Detroit lead to just three, Miami needed stops to keep the run going. The HEAT played great defense on the possession, forcing the Pistons to put the ball in Jennings’ hands with time running out. Sure enough, Jennings was able to make the jumper from a few feet behind the line over an outstretched Norris Cole. There was nothing more that the HEAT could do. They played great defense and were outdone by great shotmaking.

 

Efficiency Rating: Offensive Efficiency: 98.9; Defensive Efficiency: 106.5

 

Trend to Watch: Michael Beasley has played well this season, but the last few weeks have been particularly interesting. While Beasley is going to take a lot of jumpers in the HEAT’s offense, he’s been more aggressive off the bounce and in turn gotten layups, dunks and trips to the free throw line. His continued development is important to watch going forward as he’ll ease the scoring burden that’s placed on LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. Against Detroit, eight of Beasley’s 16 attempts came in the restricted area. Two more came in the paint and two were corner threes. These are hot spots that the HEAT want Beasley taking advantage of and he is doing so on a regular basis now. Miami’s offense is predicated on spacing the floor and Beasley was able to do that as a shooter from the wings, but he was also able to take advantage of the space with drives and cuts to the rim. This is not the Beasley we saw early in the season. If he keeps changing his game to fit Miami’s style of play, he’ll be an important piece throughout the season.

 

The Takeaway: Games like this happen. There were defensive lapses, but we’ve seen the HEAT correct those before. There were too many turnovers, but we’ve seen the HEAT correct those before. There were missed open jumpers, but the HEAT’s roster and history suggest that those same looks will fall if taken again. It was just one of those nights. There’s always disappointment when a long winning streak comes to a close, but it was going to happen at some point. Detroit played well and hit huge shots when they needed to down the stretch. Their big frontline played well and they were able to weather a run from the HEAT in the fourth that often causes opponents to crumble. The HEAT will move on and clean up the mistakes they made because that’s what they do. We’ve seen it before and we’ll see it again.

 

Notes: Chris Bosh finished with 14 points and six rebounds. Ray Allen added 12 points and four rebounds off the bench. Dwyane Wade and Greg Oden were inactive.

Rio, Bosh and the Coach lost the game for us !

 

Funny, nothing on Cole, he was the guy who put the team back in track with his defense and also that 6 - 0 run in the 4th quarter then Beasley went ham

 

Heat : 18 turnovers which led to 29 easy points for the Pistons 

 

Battier : 0/4 at 3

Bosh : 0/2 at 3

James Jones : 0/3 at 3

Hey new there. pretty much i watch every game this season. even tho i live in europe and games start 2:30AM for me. 

 

So i just wanted to say:

Am i only one who thinks that when Wade is sitting out Beasley should get starter role? I mean usually i love what he does off the bench since Allen isnt scoring so many points this year. But i feel like when Wade isnt starting there is no scorers at out starting line up. All the games so far lebron is trying not to score first Q and find his teammates. Bosh - well I feel like he is playing worst with years. Chalmers is a point guard so he isnt trying to score 1Q. And who really counts on Battier. So with Wade being out i feel like team is missing 10 points at 1Q alone. 

BTW if wade is missing games Lebron shouldnt be playing his "i will make 13 shots today" game. Missing Wade means missing 20 points per game. 

Over all i think team played dumb last night. but i am not making big deal oout of it because team is still going to loose. No one is winning 82 games per season.

I'd have to go with Jennings' shot clock cheese 3 that pushed the lead to 6, but yeah, that strip on LeBron hurt too.

Simply put, at some point, playing one quarter during a for quarter game will get you beat. For several games now, MIAMI has been relying on one solid quarter to win games. Last night's sleepwalk of a start caused them the game. Hopefully they learn from this and start treating us HEATians to at least 2 1/2 quarters. Sometimes you have to play the first half...TEAM HEAT since '88!

Actually, in contrast to what was said, I have a lot of respect for lebron's game. He seemed to single handledly rip apart the entire pistons team in the playoffs a couple years back. This was against a strong defensive team. I also like the appreciate the style of play from the heat and despise the ugliness the pacers can bring to a game. The pistons did this for YEARS! Grind out every game....keep the score low...keep the pace slow...sucked to watch. This is a very different pistons team to watch than I'm used to. They get up and down, they're young, and talented. They, however, lack experience and would be heavily unfavored in a series with the likes of Miami. I am just SO pumped to see them take down some of the best teams in NBA. I firmly believe that the pistons are turning things around and this is a sign of what's to come. - cheddar bob

Game didn't turn out as planned, our defense rotation offense could have been better, but we saw something new in our game…).,

 

 

Beside we need to make sure to get it going from start Level Up
