The Miami Heat defeated the Detroit Pistons 118-110, with Jimmy Butler playing a crucial role in the win. Butler scored 26 points, 15 of which came in the fourth quarter, helping the Heat solidify their position in the Eastern Conference. Alongside him, Bam Adebayo and Duncan Robinson each contributed 18 points.

Terry Rozier added 17 points, Caleb Martin 15, and Jaime Jaquez Jr. 11 for the Heat, who have now won 11 of their last 14 games. This victory moves Miami to 35-26, placing them sixth in the Eastern Conference standings, a half-game behind Orlando and New York, and a step ahead of Philadelphia.

The game was decided when Butler hit a crucial 3-pointer with 22 seconds left, his first of the night, sealing the victory. This performance extends Butler’s streak of games with at least one steal and one 3-pointer to 14, highlighting his consistent impact.

Despite missing key players due to injuries, Miami showed depth and toughness. The team announced the signing of veteran guard Patty Mills, aiming to bolster their roster further as the playoffs approach.

Detroit’s effort was led by Cade Cunningham with 23 points and Simone Fontecchio with 22. However, the loss ties them with Washington for the NBA’s worst record at 9-52. The Pistons are looking to improve as they spend the next stretch of games at home, including two upcoming matches against the Heat.

The game also featured a high-scoring first quarter for Miami and a significant run in the third quarter, with the Heat pulling away with 15 consecutive points. Robinson’s 3-pointer late in the game and Butler’s clutch performance in the final minutes were key to securing the win.

Next, the Heat visit Dallas, aiming to continue their positive streak as the season progresses toward the playoffs.
