(DETROIT) – Tyler Herro had 31 points and eight rebounds as the Miami Heat rallied to beat the host Detroit Pistons 100-92 on Tuesday night. 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. Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo each added 15 points and nine rebounds for the Heat, who won for the fifth time in six games. Kyle Lowry had 15 points, eight assists and six rebounds in the win. 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. With Stewart suspended and Kelly Olynyk (knee) weeks away from a possible return, rookie center Luka Garza got his first NBA start, and scored seven points in 17 minutes.
