Game Story

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan (Ticker) -- Dwyane Wade helped give Shaquille O'Neal something he has not had in nearly three years - a win in Detroit. Wade recorded his first career triple-double with 31 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds and O'Neal added 21 points as the Miami Heat ran their winning streak to 13 games with an 89-78 victory over the Detroit Pistons. While a member of the Los Angeles Lakers, O'Neal had lost five in a row at the Palace of Auburn Hills including the final three games of the NBA Finals last season dating to January 2002. That streak was pushed to six earlier this season in a 78-77 loss November 26. But he combined with Wade to score 14 points in an 18-2 run to close the game and finish the best month in team history. Miami went 14-1 in December - one game better than its 13-2 mark in February 1998. "(Wade's) the best second-year player I've played with," said O'Neal, who was a teammate of Penny Hardaway in Orlando and Kobe Bryant in Los Angeles when they were in their second NBA seasons. "There aren't any young guards in the league except LeBron (James) who can do what he does. He goes to the rim, he plays defense and he's very unselfish." Wade became the fifth player in Miami history to record a triple-double, joining Rory Sparrow, Steve Smith, Billy Owens and Lamar Odom. "I've been close plenty of times," he said. "It's good to finally get it and get that bug off my back. Hopefully, there's a lot more in my future." Heat oach Stan Van Gundy said that Wade's performance was even more impressive considering it came against the Pistons, who are the Eastern Conference's best defensive team. "Dwyane was incredible," Van Gundy said. "He was very efficient tonight. To have that kind of night with that kind of efficiency against a great defensive team like Detroit shows you what type of player he is." "Wade was great tonight," Pistons guard Chauncey Billups said. "He was driving to the basket and getting tip-ins, and he kept getting the ball when we thought we had rebounds." That was one of the things that irked Detroit coach Larry Brown. "We didn't get a loose ball all game," Brown said. "Every loose ball all I saw were black shirts diving on the floor, while we were trying to pick them up." O'Neal, who was hampered by foul trouble, made just 3-of-13 in the first half, but Wade scored 18 points to keep the Heat within striking distance, 47-41. "I was missing shots that I usually make but Flash (Wade) saved the day," O'Neal said. "I tried to step it up a little bit in the third and fourth quarter. We played good team ball. It was a tough Detroit team, but we know that if we do what we're supposed to do, we'll be fine." O'Neal and Udonis Haslem combined for 14 points in the third quarter, but Richard Hamilton hit a layup at the buzzer to give Detroit a 69-67 edge heading into the final period. Antonio McDyess made a layup with 7:35 left to put Detroit ahead, 76-71. It was the last basket by the Pistons, who missed their final 13 shots and made just 14 percent (3-of-22) in the final period. "Our fourth-quarter defense was outstanding," Van Gundy said. "I thought our defense down the stretch was tremendous. That's what we normally do. We get to that point in the game and we really start defending." Brown was frustrated with his team's futility in the final period. "I've never seen anything like the second half tonight," Brown said. "I never saw the ball passed. We took five or six three-pointers kicking our feet with no chance of making them. We come off screens and two guys are guarding one and we won't throw the ball." The Pistons were playing one day after rallying from a 17-point halftime deficit in Washington, which forced the starters to play a lot of minutes, but Brown wouldn't use that as an excuse for his team's poor shooting in the fourth. "Maybe if we were in a situation where we were getting a consistent effort every night you could look at that as an excuse, but we haven't been," Brown said. Van Gundy was more sympathetic. "I'm sure it helped that they were on a back-to-back," he said. "I'm sure it helped a little bit in the fourth quarter. They probably felt a little tired at the end, but we'll take it any way we can." Hamilton scored 19 points and Rasheed Wallace had 13 and 11 rebounds for the Pistons, who had a three-game winning streak snapped.
