Game Preview: Miami Heat vs Detroit Pistons, 7:30 pm

Not only do the Miami Heat look to extend their win streak to 11 games when they host the Detroit Pistons Tuesday night at AmericanAirlines Arena, the Heat have also won 14 of the last 17 games against Detroit.

It is the first game LeBron James will play since winning Eastern Conference Player of the Week.

The only hope the Pistons (7-10) may have against Miami (14-3) is Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe in the paint, clogging the driving lanes for James and Dwyane Wade.

In his second season, Drummond has been impressive posting averages of 13.1 points, 12.2 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per game.

However, Drummond and Monroe have struggled while on the court together, as the Pistons have the worst-ranked defense in the NBA.

For the Pistons, Chauncey Billups (knee) is day to day and Will Bynum (hamstring) is questionable. No Heat players are listed as injured.
