The NBA brings more action on Monday as the Miami Heat will clash with the Detroit Pistons. Miami is coming off a 123-118 road loss to Atlanta Saturday night in their last game. On the other side, Detroit also suffered a defeat in their last game against Philadelphia with a score of 109-99.
Miami Heat Form
The Heat are one of the teams that are on a bad run at the moment. They have now lost three games in a row including an away defeat against Atlanta. On a positive side, they have the in-form Josh Richardson who scored 32 points in the loss against the Hawks.
On the offensive side of the game, the Heat are placed on the 13th spot in the league in scoring, putting up an average of 113.5 points per game.
On the defensive side of the game, they are placed on the 19th spot in scoring defence as they have allowed 112.3 points per game.
Detroit Pistons Form
The Pistons had a very good start of the season as they were able to win their first 4 games. However, they were not able to keep that pace as they have gone on a bad run with 4 defeats in a row. The played well against Philadelphia but that was not enough as they suffered another defeat. On the positive side, they have the in-form Blake Griffin who scored 38 points in that loss. He also had 13 rebounds and six assists in that game.
On the offensive side of the game, the Pistons are placed on the 20th spot in the league in scoring with an average of 109.5 points per game.
On the defensive side of the field, they are placed on the 17th spot in the league as they concede 112.1 points per game.
Both teams are not playing well lately. It seems that they will need to improve if they want to get back to winning ways. The Heat was playing well at one period but their recent form is not good enough. On the other side, the Pistons also suffered lately, but playing at their home ground can have a galvanizing effect and I expect them to win this game. Go for the Pistons.
