Austin Daye exploded for 18 points in the second quarter, making 4-5 three-pointers, but the Detroit Pistons still trail the Miami Heat 56-50 at halftime at The Palace of Auburn Hills.
Daye started the second quarter with two triples in a row, hit two more in a row minutes later, and fittingly made a buzzer-beating 12-footer to bring the Pistons within six at halftime. Daye did not score in the first quarter.
Still, the reeling Pistons, who enter tonight having lost 11 of 13 games, trail the Heat, who are shooting a scorching 60.5 % from the field in the first half.
Chris Bosh remains red-hot with 15 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assists on 7-8 shooting from the field, and LeBron James has added 11 points.
