Miami Heat vs. Detroit Pistons: Live Score, Results and Game Highlights
Keep it here as the Miami Heat take on the Detroit Pistons at the Palace of Auburn Hills.
Live updates below.
LeBron James, Scottie Pippen, Charles Barkley & Michael Jordan (35 Pts, 6 Reb, 5 Ast, 6 Stl, Blk, 60% FG in game past 25 seasons)— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) December 29, 2012
In a somewhat shocking turn of events, the Detroit Pistons knocked off the Miami Heat, 109-99.
Led by Will Bynum and his 25 points and 10 assists, the Pistons unloaded on the Heat in 2nd quarter after trailing by 15 at the end of the 1st quarter.
LeBron James did all he could, with 35 points, six rebounds, six steals and five assists. In addition, LeBron shot the ball at a 62.8 percent clip.
Kobe Bryant should take a note out of LeBron's "efficiency" playbook, because that's the name of the game for LeBron.
Aside from Chris Bosh's 28 points, LeBron didn't get much help from anyone else on the team—with no one else on the team scoring double digits.
The Pistons on the other hand beat the Heat with a well-balanced attack, with six players hitting the double-digit mark on the night—Will Bynum (25), Charlie Villanueva (18), Kyle Singler (12), Tayshaun Prince (11), Austin Daye (11) and Andre Drummond (10).
This win could be just what the Pistons need to get their team moving in a positive direction. The Heat, on the other hand, will forget about this loss by the time you're done reading this sentence.
Also, congratulations to Will Bynum for his Player of the Week award, coming early next week.— Tim Reynolds (@ByTimReynolds) December 29, 2012
With that shot, Will Bynum just entered "UNREAL LAND."
He's playing at an insane level right now.
Pistons 107, Heat 97—1:05 remaining in the 4th quarter
It's pretty shocking, but the Pistons are actually BEATING the Heat.
It's not even that the Heat are giving this one away. They are getting outplayed.
Pistons 105, Heat 97—2:15 remaining in the 4th quarter
LeBron is trying to find teammates, but they aren't hitting the shots.
It's time for him to just start shooting.
Pistons 101, Heat 90—3:35 remaining in the 4th quarter
First time in LeBron James' career he'll finish with at least 35 points and six steals. And Heat down 11 midway through the fourth.— Tim Reynolds (@ByTimReynolds) December 29, 2012
When you're down 11, the one thing you don't want to do is foul a guy on a made three ball.
Whelp, the Pistons just did it. Luckily Battier clanked the free throw.
Pistons 97, Heat 87—4:53 remaining in the 4th quarter
The Pistons just can't miss tonight. Charlie Villanueva looks at his hand like he didn't even know it was there.
Villanueva 4-5 from beyond the arc, Pistons as a team are 12-18.
Pistons 95, Heat 85—5:28 remaining in the 4th quarter
LeBron gets a nice ding in the groin from Andre Drummond.
I sure hope there's a suspension coming for that one.
Pistons 90, Heat 81—6:55 remaining in the 4th quarter
LeBron James on pace for sixth-best shooting night of his career, and Heat down 13 in Detroit with 8:00 left.— Tim Reynolds (@ByTimReynolds) December 29, 2012
What a turn of events — Andre Drummond steals LeBron James ( I know I didn't think that would happen either), and then finished on the glass at the other end.
Pistons 88, Heat 77—8:55 remaining in the 4th quarter
7-0 run, and counting, for the Pistons
LeBron doesn't want to add "Losing to a Kyle Singler' Pistons team" to his resume.
With four quick buckets, the Heat are within two possessions of the Pistons. That's called a LeBron-turn-around.
Pistons 81, Heat 77—10:37 remaining in the 4th quarter
I don't think LeBron jumps with his "jump-shot" anymore. He just leans way, way back.
Pistons 81, Heat 71—end of the 3rd quarter
Heat out-scored 64-39 in the 2nd and 3rd quarter
Did anyone else see that Kobe/Jordan through-the-leg dribbling?
Looked like he was going to do something crazy, ended up just passing it to Battier in the corner.
Pistons 79, Heat 69—0:9 remaining in the 3rd quarter
It's time for LeBron to take over this one.
Pistons 78, Heat 69—1:38 remaining in the 3rd quarter
Chris Bosh with a hammer-time throw down on Kyle Singler.
There's at least one highlight for the Heat in the last 20 minutes.
Pistons 76, Heat 63—3:38 remaining in the 3rd quarter
The Heat need to have a serious talk with Dwyane Wade about kicking guys in the going, because they aren't doing too well without him.
Pistons 76, Heat 59—4:45 remaining in the 3rd quarter
To be fair, this matchup is like the Detroit Pistons' championship game, so it makes sense that they are playing like it's the last game they'll play.
Pistons 70, Heat 59—6:33 remaining in the 3rd quarter
Hammer actually did his full library at halftime of Pistons-Heat. All 3 songs, I'm told.— Tim Reynolds (@ByTimReynolds) December 29, 2012
