(AP) — While the Miami Heat continue to chase history, the Detroit Pistons have played like they’re ready to close the book on a fifth straight losing season.

Coming off a remarkable comeback, the Heat look for a 25th straight victory while trying to hand the visiting Pistons a 10th consecutive defeat Friday night.

Detroit (23-46) has allowed 107.9 points on 51.2 percent shooting while losing all nine March games by an average margin of 17.6. Facing the reigning NBA champions, who are riding the second-longest winning streak in league history, might provide the defining test to see if the Pistons have enough pride to conclude another disappointing season with some hope for the future.
