The Detroit Pistons beat the Miami Heat 91-78 but the Heat still lead the series 3-2. The Pistons came out with a sense of urgency and got all the loose balls and that's what wins every game. Chauncey Billups got 17 points and 10 assists in 42 minutes. Richard Hamilton got 16 points and 10 boards in 38 minutes. Hamilton played well he got some easy shots early and that's how he got going. Tayshaun Prince got 29 points and 7 boards in 43 minutes. Prince was terrific and he got a few back downs that he didn't get in other games. Antonio McDyess got 12 points and 6 boards in 19 minutes. McDyess was hitting his jumpers and played hard. Dwyane Wade got 23 points and 4 assists in 45 minutes. DWade didn't have a big game like game 4 and the Pistons played great defense. Shaquille O'Neal got 19 points and 6 boards in 31 minutes. O'Neal played hard he needed a few more touches in the second half though. Udonis Haslem got 10 points and 10 boards in 31 minutes. Haslem got a few second chance points for the Heat and that will be the difference in game 6.
