USA TODAY Sports

For the second time in the month of December, the Miami Heat have lost to a bottom-feeding opponent.

Led by Will Bynum's 25 points and 10 assists, the Detroit Pistons upset the defending champions by a score of 109-99. Andre Drummond also finished with a double-double, tallying 10 points and 10 rebounds.

In other words, the Heat allowed two reserves to pick up double-doubles. Neither saw 30 minutes of action.

On Miami's end, LeBron James led the way with 35 points, six rebounds, five assists and six steals. Chris Bosh tacked on 28 points and nine rebounds.

Unfortunately, it wasn't enough to pick up the W. These player grades will tell you why.
