Eric Moreland: 2 points, 10 rebounds, 2 steals, 2 blocks
The Pistons win a defensive grind match in double overtime. Down by three with just under three seconds to go, Luke Kennard received the inbounds pass and pulled up for three. Kennard would be fouled on the play and he hit all three free throws to send the game into OT.
Neither team could break free in the first overtime, leading to a sudden-death double overtime.
With under ten minutes left in the period, Detroit guard Pierre Jackson would crossover Miami defender London Perrantes, drive to the pain and float a shot over multiple Miami defenders for the win.
This game took two overtimes for both teams to reach 70 points each. The Heat managed to score just 9 points in the first quarter, but they would score 30 in the third.
Okaro White dropped 29 points for his second 20-plus performance this summer. It was ultimately not enough, as Miami drops to 0-4 this summer.
Luke Kennard scored in double figures for the third time in as many games, as Detroit improves to 2-1 in Orlando.
