Pistons Vs. Heat Final Score: Detroit Falls 101-98 To Miami

The Detroit Pistons (4-15) gave the Miami Heat (13-5) a good game, but for the 12th time in 14 games games, it was not good enough, as Detroit fell 101-98 to Miami on Wednesday night at The Palace of Auburn Hills.

A 12-0 fourth quarter run brought Detroit all the way back and in front 92-90, but Detroit went scoreless over the final minute and half of regulation.

LeBron James totaled 32 points, 6 rebounds and 7 assists, Chris Bosh added 27 points on 12-15 shooting from the field, and the Pistons lost despite shooting an even 50.0 % from the field.

Austin Daye exploded for 18 points in the second quarter and finished the game with 28 points, while the building blocks inside and outside both performed well, as Greg Monroe had 20 points and 10 rebounds, and Brandon Knight had 17 points and 5 assists.

Detroit gets just one day off before they host the Atlanta Hawks on Friday at 7:30 p.m. After that, Detroit takes to the road, where they are 1-8, for a four-game road trip.
