The Miami Heat will hit the road for a brief three game road trip, starting with the Pistons in Detroit on Friday night. The game starts at 7:30 pm and can be seen on Sun Sports.

Simply put, the Pistons are not in the same league as the Heat, and this should not be a very difficult contest for them. But these teams have played once already this year, and somehow the Heat only won 101-98. The Pistons were led in that game by Austin Daye with 28 points, but he hasn't seen as much playing time recently, so he mint not be as much of a threat. But Ben Gordon was absolutely on fire the last time the Pistons took the floor, so he could lead them to an equally improbable result on Friday.
