AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) - Will Bynum scored 15 points and the
new-look Detroit Pistons got off to a successful start with a 87-83
victory over the Miami Heat on Monday night in the preseason opener
for both teams.
Dwyane Wade led Miami with 18 points.
The Pistons led by as many as 17 in the second half, but Miami
came back in the fourth quarter. The Heat comeback was helped by a
mistake by the replacement officials with 1:21 left. Bynum made two
free throws to apparently put Detroit up 87-78, but the Miami
players pointed out that Bynum hadn't been fouled on the play.
After a discussion, the points were taken off the board and
Maceo Baston was sent to the line, where he missed both shots.
