(MIAMI) — Another slow start, and another win for the Miami Heat.
The Heat overcame a halftime deficit to win their 25th straight game, 103-89 over the Detroit Pistons on Friday at AmericanAirlines Arena.
“We don’t get caught up in things like that, saying that we’re untouchable,” Heat forward LeBron James said. “We know we can be beat by anybody, any night, if we don’t come in with the mindset to play our game.”
James finished with 29 points, eight rebounds and eight assists for Miami (54-14).
Detroit (23-47) could only muster 35 points in the second half. “The effort was there,” Detroit guard Jose Calderon said. “I thought we played pretty for almost the whole game. When they came out for the second half, they looked like a different team out there. … They tweaked their game plan and it was a bit more difficult to make some baskets. They were more aggressive.”
