MIAMI (97.1 THE TICKET/AP) – Greg Monroe scored a game high 31 points but it’s not enough as the Detroit Pistons fall to the Miami Heat 88-110 on Friday night.

Monroe had a double-double on the evening with 12 rebounds but didn’t get enough support offensively against the Heat.

Dwyane Wade scored 29 points and sparked a pivotal run to help Miami earn their fourth victory in a row Friday by beating the Pistons.

The Heat got even for a loss at Detroit on Dec. 28. They improved to 18-3 at home, while the Pistons fell to 4-16 on the road.

After falling behind by nine points, the Heat outscored Detroit 26-4 during a seven-minute stretch in the second quarter to take a 60-47 lead. Wade scored 15 points during the spurt.

LeBron James had 23 points, seven rebounds and seven assists for the Heat, who shot 56 percent. Over the past two seasons, they’re 34-2 when shooting at least 50 percent.
