Vincent Ellis

Career-high 32 points for Drummond. #Pistons

David Mayo

Career-high 32 points for Andre Drummond.

Vincent Ellis

Might be four after he just threw in another alley-oop. #Pistons

Vincent Ellis

Think this might be the first time I've ever said don't think the #Pistons have gone to Drummond enough. 11-for-14. Remember 2 dunks?

Vincent Ellis

#Pistons finally gained traction defensively, keeping the Heat out the paint.

Vincent Ellis

#Pistons were down 17, but close third on 11-0 run.

David Mayo

11-0 run to end 3Q. Heat 71, Pistons 65.

David Mayo

Meeks hits two threes, then Jackson settles for a challenged long two rather than find him again. That's just bad PG play.

Vincent Ellis

Back-to-back triples from Meeks and #Pistons down 9

David Mayo

Meeks two quick threes and it's 71-62.

Vincent Ellis

Wade giving KCP a lesson. Wade with 21.

David Mayo

The first time Caron Butler's name gets called all night is for the wrong reason. He's nonexistent tonight.

Vincent Ellis

SVG giving Tolliver the business for being WAY late on Haslem roll down the lane. #Pistons

David Mayo

SVG absolutely killing Tolliver for his slow reaction to the pick and roll. 59-48.

David Mayo

Last season and this season combined, Udonis Haslem has two double-doubles, both within last 3G. Did it in a half tonight.

David Mayo

Udonis Haslem with a double-double. #thingsthatcanthappen

David Mayo

34-20 points in the paint for Miami, which leads 47-42.

Vincent Ellis

#Pistons down 7. Yet to score in the second quarter nearly five minutes in.

Vincent Ellis

#Pistons haven't scored in first 3:15 of second quarter. #Heat have scored 5 to take 3-point lead.

David Mayo

Anthony's buzzer-beating tip gives #Pistons 27-25 lead after 1Q in Miami.

Vincent Ellis

Nice tip from Anthony at the quarter buzzer to give #Pistons 2-point lead going into 2nd.

Vincent Ellis

Drummond with 8 and all six of #Pistons rebounds.

David Mayo

#Heat have more offensive rebounds (7) than #Pistons have total rebounds (6).

Vincent Ellis

#Pistons up 6. Would be completely dominating if they could control defensive glass.

Vincent Ellis

Jackson with 8 quick points after those turnovers. #Pistons up 6.

Vincent Ellis

Drummond with an emphatic swat of Wade.

Vincent Ellis

Two Jackson turnovers stop the #Pistons early onslaught.

David Mayo

KCP commits big-league fouls. He knows how to stop a guy at the rim.

Vincent Ellis

First 8 possessions for Pistons.

David Mayo

Most empty seats I've ever seen in the lower bowl for a #Heat game.

Vincent Ellis

I've downplayed the Drummond All-Star stuff, but he's playing at that level recently. 15, 15 and nearly 2 blocks over last 10.

Vincent Ellis

Make it first 7 possessions after Drummond jump hook. #Pistons up 7.

Vincent Ellis

#Pistons score on first six possessions. Up 5 after monstrous Drummond follow dunk.

David Mayo

Man-sized putback dunk by Drummond.

David Mayo

Nice job by KCP calling Drummond out for that screen, 8-6 #Pistons.

Matt Dery

Mrazek pulled? This is like a movie this week. #RedWings

Vincent Ellis

Wade (old) is playing tonight vs. #Pistons

Vincent Ellis

Ellis: Shooting just one consideration if Pistons must replace Monroe on.freep.com/1bF18n1 via @freep

Matt Dery

#MSU grinding it out. Cool moment seeing Valentine call for his dad in the stands to embrace him. That's what sports is about.

Andre Drummond

Michigan state too the final 4! http://t.co/AxOmR7rrkX

David Mayo

Late-game college execution. Were they running the picket fence. #thisainthoosiers

Matt Dery

Worst decision making by players in Elite 8 history. This is amazing.

Matt Dery

Blackshear doesn't shoot it here... There should be an investigation. #MSU has been here before. Izzo difference.

David Mayo

SVG is about 12 seconds from starting his pre-game presser by himself.

David Mayo

No Whiteside, no Chris Andersen for #Heat. Wade game-time decision.

Matt Dery

#MSU defense is better this half. Yes. But the dudes in white t shirts really can't shoot it.

Matt Dery

Trice just has that look right now. Just so dangerous. Great decision making. Everything. #MSU

David Mayo

He has a bright future in Luxembourg.

Matt Dery

They should do a Sport Science feature on Denzel Valentine's game. Or an Unsolved Mysteries. I'd watch.

David Mayo

ICYMI, column today from @FloydMayweather camp included cool 50-photo gallery from @JoshSlagter: tinyurl.com/qa3m25z

David Mayo

Getting something offensively out of Dawson in the first half of a game this weekend would be cool.

Caron Butler

Best moments of my life is moments like this .....#father#daddygirl #birthday#Familyfirst instagram.com/p/00SSEEgjGz/

Vincent Ellis

See criticism of Brey for last sequence. Fair since caught without a timeout. But Grant can get away from most 7-footers, lol.

David Mayo

My column from @FloydMayweather camp, about gambling, legacy, and "reckless" @MannyPacquiao: tinyurl.com/ocqhb7l

Jodie Meeks

Way to fight boys!!! 38-0

Matt Dery

Great timeout by Brey. But I can't stand that rule. Coaches shouldn't be able to call TO.

Jodie Meeks

Big Shot!!! Lock in now!

Matt Dery

Calipari has no idea what to do. None. This is crazy.

David Mayo

Where are all the folks saying Kentucky could beat bad NBA teams?

Vincent Ellis

Gotta admit my first extended looks at Grant last couple of days. I like.

Vincent Ellis

Not a good possession for UK whenever they don't pound it inside.

Matt Dery

Is @CBSSports or @tbsveryfunny or whomever is broadcasting this game gonna show us that last bogus foul or no?

Matt Dery

I've said #Pistons fans should want Winslow or Johnson. Frank the Tank even, but boy does Dekker fit what SVG wants to do too.

David Mayo

That'd be a call from the league office for flopping in the NBA. Goodness.

Matt Dery

First year in @CorkCommish league and I just rolled the dice in round 3 on Andrew Cashner. Let's go!!!

Andre Drummond

"Stay true... Be you...."

Anthony Tolliver

“...I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.” John 10:10 #iJnip #tGbtg

Andre Drummond

"You ain't going nowhere" 🎵🎶

Matt Dery

Guard play is what wins games like that. And coaching. Trice/Izzo combo is strong as hell right now.

Matt Dery

Nice play call out of the timeout by Lon. Burp

Matt Dery

I know the Costello fan club is frustrated, but refs rarely call charges anymore at this level.

Matt Dery

Great action. Great want. Tournament basketball. #MSU intensity. (Too bad no one can shoot)

Anthony Tolliver

Another great team win tonight on the road! Having alot of fun right now #DetroitBasketball

Matt Dery

Verne is stunned Tum Tum isn't playing. Acting like the dude is Jason Kidd or something. Last I checked he's a decent freshman guard

Matt Dery

Buddy Hield is a beast. There's a reason he's Big 12 POY.

Matt Dery

There is some bad basketball being played so far tonight. Hopefully #MSUvsOU is entertaining.

Caron Butler

Good team win! @rjokcson_15 #TPrince @andredrummondd lead the charge...... instagram.com/p/0wPrjuAjL8/

Vincent Ellis

Said his preference is to play with a contender. #Pistons.

Vincent Ellis

Prince said after the game that he has 2, 3 more years left. Also didn't completely rule out return to #Pistons next season.

Vincent Ellis

4 straight blocked shots by Anthony. Prince fadeaway and #Pistons bench goes nuts with 16-point lead.

Vincent Ellis

Prince drops the hook over Gordon and #Pistons up 16.

Vincent Ellis

Prince jumper and #Pistons up 14 with 8:47 left. And giving KCP some defensive pointers before heading into time-out.

Vincent Ellis

Jackson with 24 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists. He went 17/5/4 in the third quarter.

Vincent Ellis

SVG: "C'mon Jodie!" After Willie Green gets to the basket for an easy lay-up. Yep, Willie Green.

David Mayo

RJax 24P/10R/9A through 3Q. #Pistons lead #Magic 87-76 going to the fourth.

Vincent Ellis

Yeah, don't know if Willie Green the answer with Jackson. #Pistons

Vincent Ellis

Jackson grabs ninth rebound and hits Meeks for triple for 9th assist. He has 22 points. #Pistons up 13.
