Miami Heat Betting
The Miami Heat didn’t have enough firepower to keep up with the Detroit Pistons and they now fell to a three-game losing streak. Their record is now 4-7 and disappointment is in the air as compared to what they showcased in last year’s playoffs. Bam Adebayo played and led the team with 28 points, seven rebounds, six assists, and three blocks. Duncan Robinson were all three-pointers giving the team 22 points while Goran Dragic came off the bench with a double-double of 12 points and 10 assists. This team sorely missed Jimmy Butler and Tyler Herro.
