D.J. Augustin had 25 points and 13 assists and the Detroit Pistons closed the first quarter on a 25-1 run, going on to beat the Miami Heat 108-91 on Tuesday night. Chris Bosh scored 34 points, including 21 in the third quarter, but nobody else provided much help offensively for Miami, which was still without injured star Dwyane Wade. It was the first time in Bosh's five seasons with the Heat that they lost a regular-season game with him scoring at least 30 points. They had been 17-0. Andre Drummond had 14 points and 14 rebounds for the Pistons, and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 18. Greg Monroe had 12 points and nine rebounds. Detroit is now 2 1/2 games behind Miami and Charlotte, which occupy the last two playoff spots in the Eastern Conference.
