Maurice Cheeks: 'Composure helped Detroit Pistons beat Miami Heat'

Detroit Pistons head coach Maurice Cheeks believes that composure helped the team secure victory over the Miami Heat.

Maurice Cheeks has said that the Detroit Pistons had to keep their composure to hold on for a win over the Miami Heat last night.

The Pistons beat the defending NBA champions 107-97, leaving them sixth in the Eastern Conference.

The head coach told reporters: "I thought that we got off to a good start. We got a lot of good performances from a lot of people. We just kind of held our composure. We knew that at some point they'd make a run.

"LeBron [James] was coming in and he was making plays. [Michael] Beasley was making plays for them. Again, we held our composure.

"They had a couple of offensive rebounds that kept them in the game. When the game is balanced like that and they have guys that are shooting threes, you have to just challenge the shot, hope they miss and rebound the ball."

The Pistons play again this evening when they host the Milwaukee Bucks.
