Heat Vs. Pistons Final Score: LeBron James And Chris Bosh Lead Miami To Second Win In As Many Nights

The Miami Heat won their second game in as many nights on Wednesday, defeating the Detroit Pistons 101-98 at The Palace of Auburn Hills. The victory was in doubt, however, until LeBron James hit six straight free throws over the final minute and a half to seal a last minute comeback victory. The Heat slogged their way through the fourth quarter but managed to buckle down on the defensive end to eek out the win.

Playing 42 minutes on the second night of a back-to-back, James led the Heat with a game-high 32 points. Chris Bosh was once again a monster for Miami, pouring in 27 points just one night after setting a season-high mark with 35. Tonight, however, he did it from the wing and not the charity stripe. He hit 12 of 15 from the floor, and continues to be one fire. Last night, it was a perfect 15 of 15 from the line.

After the quick trip to Michigan, the Heat now return home where they will host a New York Knick team that has lost seven of their last eight.

Heat Vs. Pistons Score Update: Miami Leads Detroit By Six At Half As They Look For Back-To-Back Wins

The Miami Heat took a 56-50 lead over the Detroit Pistons after one half at The Palace of Auburn Hills on Wednesday. Chris Bosh continued his strong play, scoring 15 first half points against an underwhelming Detroit front line. Bosh had a season-high 35 points against the Cavs last night, and looks to be no worse for the wear on the second night of the back-to-back against another Rust Belt foe.

LeBron James added 11 points while Mario Chalmers had 10, hitting two of three attempts from downtown. Chalmers struggled last night against Kyrie Irving, but had a nice first half for a Miami team that is once again playing without Dwyane Wade.
