I’m not excited to lay chalk with the Miami Heat on the end of a back to back after they just lost to the Grizzlies backups. However, the Detroit Pistons are a joke right now, losing their last 5 games by an average of 9.6 points, and they lose on the road by an average of 9.3 points. This is a game the Heat should win comfortably, but then again there was last night, so who knows…
