Crossover Chronicles' Philip Rossman-Reich will be at the Southwest Airlines Orlando Pro Summer League all week. He will provide his thoughts on the day's action in this running post throughout the day. Miami Heat 90, Detroit Pistons 85 The Heat and Pistons went down to the wire again for the second straight day as the Heat outscored the Pistons 30-17 in the final quarter. The game was not clinched though until Kentavious Caldwell-Pope turned the ball over on an inbounds pass, missing Korie Lucious and seeing the ball bound its way down the court untouched. It was a damper to what was a solid game from both teams. Caldwell-Pope scored 20 points and Andre Drummond had 15 points and 14 rebounds for Detroit. Ian Clark scored 18 and James Nunnally had 17 for the Heat. --Andre Drummond completed a dominant Summer League around the rim today with another strong scoring and rebounding performance. I am not sure that his offensive game has expanded much from last year, but after the back injury last year, it was good to see him moving around well and being active. Drummond was certainly the best center in Orlando this week. --Hard not to be impressed with how Miami's players played this week. A lot of athleticism is presenton that roster that would fit what the Heat would want to do. Guys like Ian Clark, Michael Dunigan, D.J. Kennedy and D.J. Stephens showed enough to get a training camp invite somewhere and the chance to earn a roster spot. I do not think that place will be Miami because of the numbers crunch with that team. They deserve a shot somewhere. Indiana Pacers vs. Utah Jazz -- 10 a.m. --The more Rudy Gobert I see, the more he looks like JaVale McGee. The length, defensive presence and physical awkwardness of McGee are all there. Hopefully he has a better mental makeup. But Gobert is definitely a prospect worth developing and exploring in the coming years. --Trey Burke playing much more composed today. Not hitting his shot still, but taking fewer of them and trying to create for others. Still a very forgettable week for him. He did not hurt as much Friday, but he still did not help much either. --The Pacers' Solomon Hill has really impressed me throughout the week. Maybe my expectations were just low. I thought the Pacers took a real flyer in taking him in the first round in this Draft. But HIll showed an incredible amount of versatility and a much better shooting stroke than I thought. His ideal role is as a defender and not a scorer, but Pacers have to feel good about the find if he was their guy all along. Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Houston Rockets -- 12 p.m.     Orlando Magic vs. Boston Celtics -- 2 p.m.     Philadelphia 76ers vs. Brooklyn Nets -- 4 p.m.     [follow]
