Recap

Heat 110, Pistons 88: Dwyane Wade poured in 29 points to go with seven assists and LeBron James added 23 points, seven rebounds and seven assists as host Miami cruised to its fourth straight win. 

Chris Bosh added 14 points and seven boards and Ray Allen chipped in 11 points for the Heat, who have won five of six and evened the season series at a game apiece. 

Greg Monroe had 31 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Pistons, who have dropped two straight. Will Bynum added 13 points off the bench. 

The Pistons opened the second quarter on a 10-2 run to open a nine-point advantage before Wade took over. He scored 13 points during a 20-2 run and had 17 in the second quarter alone as the Heat took a 60-51 lead into halftime. 

Detroit didn't get closer than eight the rest of the way, as the Heat shot 55.8 percent from the floor (43-for-77) and went 19-for-23 from the foul line. 

GAME NOTEBOOK: Michael Drysch, a 50-year-old fan from McHenry, Ill., made a half-court shot to win $75,000 in a promotion between the third and fourth quarters, earning an enthusiastic celebratory embrace from James. … James has scored in double figures in 459 consecutive games, including a franchise-record 181 straight since joining the Heat. … Heat PF Chris Andersen, signed to a 10-day deal on Sunday, made his Miami debut to a large ovation. He had two points and two rebounds in four minutes. Nicknamed "Birdman," Andersen last played with Denver last March.
