Monday November 5 finds the Miami Heat meeting up vs. the Detroit Pistons as they enter the fourth week of play in the 2018-19 regular season. Both the Heat and Pistons arrive to the court on losing streaks having lost three and four in a row respectively.
Over the last three seasons the squads have split the four game season series. The Heat hold the all-time record having bested the Pistons in 57 of their 109 matches.
Injuries have hampered the Heat this season and much like the start to past seasons they are getting off to a slow start this season. Fortunately, residing in the Eastern Conference allows for a bit of leeway, although Miami can’t take too long to turn things around.
The main issue is Goran Dragic who is dealing with foot soreness and was having difficulty even in games he played. Picking up the slack for Dragic, Head Coach Erik Spoelstra wwent an unconventional route utilizing Justise Winslow as more of a playmaker. Although the result paid dividends (15 points, 8 assists, 10 rebounds) it still didn’t translate into a victory.
Hassan Whiteside (right knee) is questionable to play in Detroit. Goran Dragic (right foot pain) missed the previous game and is also questionable. James Johnson (sports hernia) and Dion Waiters (left ankle surgery) are both out for an extended period of time.
After blazing out of the gate to record a 4-0 record the Pistons have evened the score with four consecutive losses. Back to back losses to the Celtics were followed by losses on the road to the Nets and 76ers.
New Head Coach Dwane Casey is attempting to utilize Blake Griffin in more of a point forward role and return him to his superstar status. Until a core three can be established with Andre Drummond and Reggie Jackson completing that triad Casey may have some struggles ahead.
At issue for the Pistons are their slow starts which finds the squad having to battle back the entire second half to get back in the contest. If they could produce a more balanced effort through four quarters their chances of winning would greatly increase.
Reggie Bullock (left ankle sprain) missed the game versus the 76ers is listed as doubtful for Monday’s Heat game. Luke Kennnard (AC joint sprain, right shoulder) is out until mid November.
