In another exciting game in Orlando, Miami got their revenge on the Pistons. The Heat went on to win by a score of 90-85 on the final day of the Orlando Summer League. The Heat only dressed eight players on Friday, as some were headed to Las Vegas for the second Summer League stint. Detroit also was depleted on the final day. Detroit was without Khris Middleton, Slava Kravtsov, Peyton Siva, and Kim English, whom the Pistons cut last night. Andre Drummond had another stellar performance against Miami, finishing with 15 points and 14 rebounds in just 24 minutes of play. Another Piston who stood out was rookie shooting guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. KCP finished with 20 points to lead all scorers, and added 5 boards and 4 assists to his stat line as well. Detroit came out strong to start the game, taking a 26-17 lead after one. KCP was a one man show in the first. He had 9 points and 2 rebounds, while shooting 3/3 from the field and making his only three point attempt of the quarter. Rookie point guard Korie Lucious also contributed early in the second quarter as he knocked down two early threes. As Detroit tried to lengthen their lead in the second, the Heat stormed back to cut the deficit to six at the half, 45-39. Lucious finished with 9 points in the first half to go along with a trio of assists. Detroit re established their dominance in the third behind the play of Andre Drummond and KCP. The Pistons won the third quarter (23-21) giving them an eight point advantage in the final quarter.
