Pistons snap Miami’s 10-game win streak, 107-97

MIAMI (AP) – It was just a game, not a playoff series. Still, Brandon Jennings finally got a long-awaited win over the Miami Heat.

And he made the two biggest plays to get it done.

Jennings made a deep, well-covered 3-pointer to snuff out one Miami rally with 4:09 left, then stole the ball from LeBron James to set up another score two minutes later, and the Detroit Pistons beat the Heat 107-97 on Tuesday night to snap the NBA champions’ 10-game winning streak.

Kyle Singler scored 18 points to lead seven Detroit players in double figures, Andre Drummond had 18 rebounds – more than any three Heat players combined – and Greg Monroe and Rodney Stuckey each scored 16 for the Pistons.


 

”We had a lot of good performances from a lot of people,” Pistons coach Maurice Cheeks said. ”Then we just held our composure because we knew that at some point they’d make a run. Brandon made that big 3 and we were able to hold on. When Brandon hit that big 3, it kind of settled us down a little bit.”

It might have of deflated the Heat, too.

Miami trailed by as many as 18 and then got within three on a dunk by James midway through the fourth. The Heat then missed their next three shots, two of them 3-point tries that would have knotted the game, before Jennings connected from 26 feet out – ”the dagger from 90 feet,” James said afterward – to put Detroit up by six.

”Just the way the game goes,” said Heat guard Norris Cole, who was defending Jennings on the play. ”He made a big shot. Just got to tip your hat.”

The Heat never got any closer. They nearly did, being down seven and with James charging downcourt with about two minutes left, but Jennings stole the ball away, brought it to the other end and set up Monroe for an easy bucket that sealed the deal for Detroit.
