The Miami Heat beat Detroit Pistons 100-98. Flash led the comeback in the 4th by getting offensive boards, slashing in the paint, hitting jump shots with 2.3 to go and getting stops on defense. The Pistons have now lost 9 out of 50 games and the losing is starting to pile up. Dwyane Wade had 37 points and 8 boards in 43 minutes. Wade Had to play a lot but it was worth as the Heat got a win against and elite team. Shaquille O'Neal had 31 points and 8 boards in 37 minutes. Shaq is getting back into shape and should be playing better after the All Star break. Gary Payton had 13 points and 3 boards in 31 minutes off the bench. GP won the veteran minutes from Pat Riley and got some points on the board. Chauncey Billups had 29 points and 10 assists in 41 minutes. Billups passed and played an all around game but couldn't get the shot up in the final seconds and had to pass the ball to Prince. Rasheed Wallace had 21 points and blocks in 44 minutes. Wallace got out on D like the Wallace's do but it's heartbreak for the Pistons. Richard Hamilton had 25 points and 5 assists in 39 minutes. Hamilton didn't play his best team game but the Pistons will bounce back very soon and start a winning streak.
