Game of the day: Miami Heat at Detroit Pistons
By Ben Burns

Late Saturday night, as lines for today's NBA games began popping up on sportsbooks, the Miami-Detroit game was nowhere to be found.

The Pistons' laundry list of injuries had oddsmakers taking their sweet time posting a line for the 1 p.m. tipoff.

Detroit is expected to be without Allen Iverson, Richard Hamilton and Rasheed Wallace today.

Those three combined for 41 points in a 93-90 Pistons home win over the Heat on Feb. 4.

Miami was 4.5-point underdog in that game, which will make for an interesting comparison with today's line.

Ask yourself how much Iverson, Hamilton and Wallace are worth to Detroit. Does the line reflect that amount? If not, you may have your play.

The Pistons were without Iverson, Hamilton, Wallace and point guard Rodney Stuckey Friday night. But they still managed to dispose of the lowly Clippers by 18 points, with a starting lineup of Will Bynum, Arron Afflalo, Antonio McDyess, Tayshaun Prince and Kwame Brown.

However, Miami is a much better team than the Clippers.

Stuckey is expected to return to the starting lineup today and should help take some of the scoring load off of McDyess and Prince.

Before being hit by the rash of injuries, Detroit had been playing better basketball and was able to raise its game against better competition. The Pistons are 7-1 against the spreads in their last eight games against teams with winning records.

The Heat (36-32) qualifies, but has struggled in recent games.

Miami stumbles into Detroit having lost four straight games on its current road trip.

Dwyane Wade returned in Friday night's loss to the Nets, after missing a game with a hip injury.

The Pistons are a dismal 11-24 against the spread at home.
