Homecourt Advantage Proving Vital To Pistons

The Detroit Pistons have the second-best record in the NBA’s Eastern Conference but that things could be much different had they found themselves traveling more. The Pistons are a stellar 6-1 SU in Motor City this season – including 4-0 during their current homestand – but just 3-2 on the road. Andre Drummond and company look to continue their streak at Little Caesars Arena when they host the Miami Heat Sunday.

Shark Bites
  • The Heat is 4-8-2 ATS in their last 14 games.
  • The UNDER is 12-5 in the Pistons last 17 games at home.
  • The Pistons are 5-11 SU in their last 16 games at home vs the Heat.

Drummond has been an absolute monster during the Pistons current four-game winning streak, as the center is averaging 17.5 points, 18.3 rebounds and 3.8 assists in that span. In addition, Avery Bradley has found his shooting stroke and is averaging 20.3 ppg in the past four.

The Heat have won both of their previous two games but they could not have been more different. The Heat’s victory over the Phoenix Suns was a shootout with the teams combining to score 214 points while their grinding win over the Utah Jazz saw both teams fail to hit 85. Goran Dragic continues to be the focal point of the offense but scoring at least 18 points in 10 of the Heat’s past 11.
