LeBron James had his first triple-double of the season, Udonis Haslem scored a season-high 17 points and the shorthanded Miami Heat routed the Detroit Pistons, 110-78, on Friday night.

Dwyane Wade (hamstring), Mario Chalmers (quad), Ray Allen (flu) and Greg Oden (back) all sat this one out.

This was a close game until the Heat closed the first half on an 11-0 run to take a 15-point lead into halftime.

Haslem got off to a red-hot start, scoring 12 points off 6-of-6 shooting in the first quarter. He would even throw down an alley-oop slam later in the contest.

James finished with 17 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds and did not have to play a single minute during the fourth period.

Greg Monroe and Will Bynum were the leading scorers for Detroit, registering 12 points apiece. Kyle Singler was the only other Piston who scored in double figures, recording 11 points.

Miami shot 54.4 percent from the floor and hit on eight of its 19 three-point attempts. By contrast, Detroit hit on only 38 percent of its shots and shot a paltry 3-of-24 from beyond the arc.

The Heat also surprisingly outrebounded the Pistons, 47-36.
