The Detroit Pistons went to South Florida looking to pull an upset, but instead saw exactly why the Miami Heat are one of the best teams in the NBA and one of the favorite to win the NBA title. Miami was completely dominant on both ends of the floor on Sunday and rolled to a 98-75 win over Detroit.
The Heat played without Dwyane Wade, but it did not matter as Lebron James had 26 points and Chris Bosh added 22. James Jones also had 18 points off the bench as Miami used a 31-19 second quarter and held the Pistons to only 14 points in the third quarter to earn the win.
Brandon Knight led the Pistons with 16 points, but the Pistons had 19 turnovers and shot only 37.3% from the field in the loss.
