Jerami Grant and the Detroit Pistons (18-51) took on Jimmy Butler and the Miami Heat (46-24) in part of the NBA Tuesday slate. It was the Heat who came out on top with 105-98 being the final score.

Still, atop the Eastern Conference standings, the Heat have managed to get by without no shortage of key players sidelined at times. To begin this game, they had Jimmy Butler, Bam Adebayo, and Kyle Lowry all in the lineup until Butler went down with an ankle injury that cut his night short after 18 minutes.

Avoiding letdown losses to losing teams has been key in the Heat’s efforts to remain in possession of the No. 1 seed. Miami continued to get the job done in that regard in this one.

Using 13 consecutive points from Max Strus to begin the fourth quarter, the Miami Heat scored 37 points to ultimately pull away from the Pistons for the win. Overall, Tyler Herro’s 29 points set the tone for Miami in this one.

The Detroit Pistons’ focus remains on the development of Cade Cunningham as they play out another season in part of their long-term rebuilding efforts. Jerami Grant re-assumed his prior role as the Pistons’ top option on offense for the night and racked up 22 points.

Cunningham has shown intriguing signs as of late and is averaging 22.2 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 6.0 assists in 10 games since the NBA All-Star Break, but was unable to play in this one. Detroit surely will be excited to get him back into their lineup when he’s able to return.
