The Miami Heat beat the Detroit Pistons 98-83 to take a 2-1 series lead. Shaq dominated early and Wade caught fire in the 3rd and those two beat them. Shaquille O'Neal got 27 points and 12 boards in 37 minutes. O'Neal was great and got a few nice alleyoop passes. Dwyane Wade got 35 points and 8 boards in 43 minutes. DWade scored when he needed to but really focused on getting it to the big flea. Udonis Haslem got 10 points and 7 boards in 35 minutes. Haslem has to get that jumper going when they double Shaq. Antoine Walker got 11 points and 4 assists in 39 minutes. Walker took about half the three's he averaged and that's great when he pushes the ball inside. Chauncey Billups got 31 points and 3 assists in 45 minutes. Billups didn't pass enough for them to steal this game. Rasheed Wallace got 11 points and 10 boards in 35 minutes. Wallace did not hit that three much and was in foul trouble but expect him to be more active in game 4. Richard Hamilton got 20 points and assists in 35 minutes. Hamilton couldn't really get going either it was only Billups in this game.
