The Milwaukee Bucks and Detroit Pistons are both feeling good coming off wins over the reigning NBA champions, but one team will lose to a far less decorated opponent Sunday night when the Central Division rivals meet at The Palace of Auburn Hills.

Milwaukee (16-12) used a dominant fourth quarter to defeat Miami 104-85 on Saturday, outscoring the Heat 35-14 over the final 12 minutes. The Bucks shot just 40.8 percent from the field but matched a season low with six turnovers – none by Brandon Jennings, who finished with 25 points, seven assists and four steals.

The Pistons (10-22) beat Miami 109-99 on Friday for their third victory in four games, but this one felt a bit different considering the previous two came against NBA-worst Washington following a six-game losing streak.

It helped that the Heat were playing without Dwyane Wade, but that hardly made the performance of Will Bynum and the Pistons’ bench any less impressive. Detroit’s reserves outscored Miami’s 64-20, one game after they contributed 85 points in a 126-119 double-overtime loss at Atlanta.
