Pistons Win 109-99 Over Heat Playing Without NBA-Suspended Wade

Will Bynum came off the bench to get 25 points and 10 assists for the Detroit Pistons who ended the six-game win streak of the Miami Heat with a 109-99 National Basketball Association victory.

The Heat, atop the Eastern Conference with a 20-7 record, were playing without Dwyane Wade, who was suspended for one game by the NBA when his flailing leg connected with the groin of a Charlotte Bobcat player.

Charlie Villanueva scored 18 points and Kyle Singler added 12 for the Pistons who improved to 10-22 last night at the Palace of Auburn Hills in Detroit. Four reserves contributed 64 points of the Pistons’ total score.

LeBron James had a game-high 35 points and Chris Bosh added 28 for the Heat, who fell to 6-5 on the road.

Miami started the game with a 32-17 lead in the first quarter and then were outscored 41-20 in the second period by the Pistons who had a 58-52 halftime advantage.
