(AP) — Minus Dwyane Wade, Miami’s lengthy winning streak versus Detroit came to an end last month.

Based on the way Wade has performed in the last two games overall, the Heat might have a good chance to lay the foundation for another positive run against the Pistons.

Coming off his highest-scoring game of the season, Wade looks to help the Heat to a fourth consecutive victory when they host the Pistons on Friday night.

Wade’s 20.5-point average is his lowest since his rookie season, but he’s averaging 2.0 fewer shot attempts than last season and shooting a career-best 51.2 percent to remain a big reason why Miami (27-12) has the best record in the Eastern Conference.
