Miami Heat, Game 50 preview and listings

In a night where the focus was off the court due to the Blake Griffin trade, a short-handed Detroit Pistons (23-26) squad fought and scraped their way to a 125-114 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers (29-20), ending an eight-game losing streak in the process.

Before the start of the game between the Cavs and the Pistons Tuesday, NBA TV's Dennis Scott was interviewing the University of CT product when James came flying in from nowhere to shout "Team LeBron!" at the mic and left just as speedily. In contrast, Dragic has been typically solid for his Heat, averaging 17 points, 4.1 rebounds and 4.8 assists a night. Love has a, "Non-displaced fracture of the fifth metacarpal on his left hand", according to the Cavaliers, suffered in the third quarter of the defeat at Little Caesars Arena.

Griffin missed 21 games last season and 47 in 2015-16 because of injuries.

The Cavaliers say there is no timetable for his return, but Brian Windhorst of ESPN is reporting the injury will sideline Love for six to eight weeks.

Last season, Love underwent minor knee surgery on February 14, causing him to miss the All-Star Game five days later.

When asked by a media member about the concept of loyalty in sports and the fact that it oftentimes falls on the player in the public eye, James articulated a clear difference in what people think when a player gets traded as opposed to when he decides to leave.

Both teams have had a player take their game to the next level over their last five games.

Thomas never should have been put in this position.

Wade missed Friday's victory over IN and Sunday's win over the Pistons. Two consecutive 3-pointers by Korver cut the Pistons' lead to 103-101 with 6:55 to play. Anthony Tolliver chipped in 20 of his own, while Ish Smith added 19, making it an impressive night for all five Piston starters. The Cavaliers are 5.5 games behind the top seeded Boston Celtics. Reggie Bullock equaled his career high with 22 points. Written on the bottom of Wade's shoes was "My Guardian Angel Henry Thomas".

Much has been made recently about how James has a negative plus-minus for the first time since his rookie season.

Johnson also grabbed 10 rebounds, while Detroit's Andre Drummond piled up 21 points, 22 rebounds, seven assists, three steals and three blocks.

With nine field goals, James (10,924) passed Dirk Nowitzki (10,917) and moved into eighth place on the NBA's all-time list.

The Wizards are going to need Porter to be a reliable second option next to Bradley Beal if they are to survive without Wall for the next few weeks.
