Heat’s Bosh Leads Again But Beasley Shines

Heat_Chris_Bosh_9AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — Michael Beasley started this preseason at the end of the Heat’s bench. He might not be banished there for long.

After not playing in the Heat’s preseason opener, Beasley entered Game 2 of Miami’s exhibition circuit and proceeded to reel off nine points in five minutes. Beasley’s spark off the bench was one of several promising signs for the Heat on Thursday in a 112-107 victory against the Detroit Pistons at The Palace of Auburn Hills. The Heat (2-0) plays the Charlotte Bobcats in Kansas City on Friday.

Beasley, who is signed to a nonguaranteed contract after being bought out by the Phoenix Suns this offseason, entered the game with 4:48 left in the third quarter and converted a three-point play less than two minutes later. He then scored on a breakaway for five consecutive points.
