DETROIT — Tyler Herro had 31 points and eight rebounds as the Miami Heat rallied to beat the Detroit Pistons, 100-92, on Tuesday night (Wednesday, Manila time).
Miami (12-6) outscored the Pistons 27-6 in the first 8:17 of the fourth quarter to turn a nine-point deficit into a 12-point lead.
Jerami Grant had 21 points and seven rebounds for Detroit (4-13), which went 1-4 on its homestand. The Pistons played without center Isaiah Stewart, who served the first of a two-game suspension for Sunday's altercation with Lakers star LeBron James.
The Pistons led 53-47 at halftime, and Miami couldn't put together a significant run in the third quarter. Hamadou Diallo's layup with 0.2 seconds left in the period gave Detroit a 76-67 advantage going into the fourth.
Herro's back-to-back 3-pointers cut the deficit to 77-74, and Pistons coach Dwane Casey called timeout with 9:58 to play.
It didn't help much, as Herro's floater gave the Heat an 80-79 lead with 8:09 left, and Herro hit another 3-pointer on the next possession. After a Pistons miss, Dewayne Dedmon's dunk put Miami ahead 85-79, extending the run to 18-3, and prompted another Detroit timeout.
Kyle Lowry has 15 points, eight assists and six rebounds.
Heat: Duncan Robinson played despite a bruised knee, extending his consecutive games streak to 165. Glen Rice holds the franchise record with 174.
Pistons: With Stewart suspended and Kelly Olynyk (knee) weeks away from a possible return, rookie center Luka Garza got his first NBA start. Garza scored seven points in 17 minutes.
Heat: Visit the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday, the third stop of a four-game road trip.
Pistons: At the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday to start a five-game road trip.
