The season is mercifully ending for the Detroit Pistons, who are embarking upon yet another rebuilding plan. The Pistons have lost eight of their past nine, including four in a row after a 104-91 defeat against Denver on Friday. Detroit is 2-7 ATS its past nine games while Miami has won four of its past five, although it comes off a 122-108 loss at Milwaukee on Saturday. Jimmy Butler (back) didn't play in that game and is questionable for this game. The Heat still could get the fifth seed in the playoffs if things break right for them today, and they have won 11 of their past 15 games. Miami has covered four of five playing on no rest and the Pistons have covered just two of their past seven home games. Lay the points with the Heat for my NBA Game of the Month.
