Detroit Pistons Summer League: Detroit Vs Miami

The Detroit Pistons played their fourth summer league game on Wednesday, where they fell to the Miami Heat 92-83. While the summer league isn't really measured by wins and losses, this game had coach Pat Sullivan so fired up he earned himself a technical foul in the fourth quarter. That stands as the only time I have ever seen a coach receive a tech in a summer league game.

From an individual standpoint there were a few bright spots for the Pistons—mainly DaJuan Summers and Greg Monroe, with some flashes of good play from Terrico White and Marquez Haynes. Beyond those players it was hard to find much to like.

Monroe looked shaky early, particularly when guarding Miami center Garret Silar, a 300 pounder. Although it's only one summer league game this might be a recurring problem for Monroe when defending bigger centers. He doesn't seem physical enough under the basket to push big guys around, but he does posses enough finesse that he can make up for the lack of bulk, at least against summer league talent.
