The Detroit Pistons had no answers for a red hot Miami Heat team on Friday night. After leading by 23 points at halftime, Miami put it in cruise control for the second half. Detroit lost by a final score of 88-73.
Dwyane Wade finished the game with 24 points, nine rebounds and five assists. LeBron James had 17 points, six rebounds and 10 assists in the game. There was some speculation that James might sit out after suffering some falls in recent games.

This was the fourth loss in a row for the Pistons. They play another streaking team, the New York Knicks, on Saturday in New York.
