DETROIT: After a playoff appearance in 2016, the Pistons took a step back last season. There was plenty of blame to go around. A lot of the criticism landed on Andre Drummond, who has been Detroit's franchise player but hasn't always lived up to those expectations. He may never become a proficient shooter from the foul line, but he can still have a big impact if his scoring and rebounding numbers look more like they did two seasons ago. Detroit also needed better play from Reggie Jackson, who was bothered by knee issues. The Pistons need improved production from those two this season, and the hope is that swapping Marcus Morris for Avery Bradley while letting Kentavious Caldwell-Pope go turns into a net positive.
MIAMI: Miami went 30-11 in the second half of last season, and kept the core of that team together after giving long-term deals to Dion Waiters and James Johnson, plus finding the space needed to pick up Wayne Ellington's option. Kelly Olynyk does some things in pick-and-roll situations that draw comparisons to what Chris Bosh used to do in Miami, and Justise Winslow's return to the rotation after an injury-plagued year may also help. The key to the team's success, however, is going to be the play of Goran Dragic, who found a new gear this past summer when he led his native Slovenia to its first European championship. He's a clear locker-room leader alongside 15-year veteran Udonis Haslem, and the Heat, who don't have a true backup point guard, need Dragic to be great if they're going to contend in the East.
Ailing Pistons head to Miami

MIAMI -- The Detroit Pistons, who have won six of their past eight games, are hoping to keep the good times rolling Wednesday night when they face the host Miami Heat at AmericanAirlines Arena.

The Pistons (20-15) and Heat (19-17) are battling for potential playoff positioning in the Eastern Conference.

Detroit is coming off an impressive home win over the powerful San Antonio Spurs, but the Pistons have been battling injury issues. The latest problem occurred last week, when starting point guard Reggie Jackson went down with a sprained right ankle.

Shooting guard Avery Bradley (groin) has missed seven straight games, forward Stanley Johnson was scratched against the Spurs because of a hip injury, and power forward Jon Leuer has missed two months with a badly sprained left ankle.

"Some guys have to step up," Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy told the media.

Van Gundy also said he was "pretty optimistic" that Johnson would return in time to face a Heat team that has been inconsistent and mediocre so far this season.

Miami hasn't been more than two games above or below .500 all season, and it hasn't won or lost more than three games in a row. The Heat has also been better on the road (11-8) than at home (8-9).

The most recent embarrassment at home occurred Friday night, when the Heat lost to the last-place Brooklyn Nets. At one point in that game, the Heat trailed by 38 points.

"We've been waiting for consistency," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. "There's a 'Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde' quality to our team."

Indeed, the Heat went on the road and beat first-place teams such as the Boston Celtics and Minnesota Timberwolves earlier this season but then laid the proverbial egg against Brooklyn.

Spoelstra said he is seeing progress with his team overall, but some of that growth has been stunted by injuries to three would-be starters: shooting guard Dion Waiters (ankle) and forwards James Johnson (ankle) Justise Winslow (knee).

In addition, Rodney McGruder, who started at small forward most of last season, has yet to make his 2017-2018 debut due to a stress fracture in his left leg. However, McGruder was seen shooting jumpers before last week's game against Brooklyn, so perhaps his return is not as far off as had been predicted.

But, in the meantime, the Heat will have to go with what it has, which means point guard Goran Dragic, who has been slowed by an elbow injury, will have to play like he did in Saturday's win over the Orlando Magic.

Dragic had 25 points, eight assists, four rebounds, two steals and one block in that game. He made 11-of-22 shots from the floor, including 2-of-4 on 3-pointers.

Prior to that game, however, he had played three games in which he scored fewer than 15 points, missed three games because of the elbow injury and played three more in which he also scored less than 15. During that span, he averaged only 11.2 points, and the Heat expects more from its star point guard, especially with Waiters, Johnson and Winslow hurt.

On Wednesday, Dragic will likely go against backup Pistons point guard Ish Smith, a speedy veteran who scored 18 points against the Spurs while fitting in for Jackson. Smith is averaging 9.4 points and 3.9 assists this season.

With two of their top four scorers out in Jackson and Bradley, Detroit will look for more from 6-9 power forward Tobias Harris and 6-11 center Andre Drummond. Harris leads the team in scoring (18.0), and Drummond leads in rebounding (15.2) while scoring 14.3 per game.

Aside from Dragic, Miami will look for center Hassan Whiteside, who averages 14.3 points and 12.2 rebounds. The Whiteside-Drummond matchup should be a good one.
