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.
