Preview: Heat visit Pistons without Wade

New, comment

The Miami Heat will take on the Detroit Pistons on Friday night and they'll have to do without their all star shooting guard, Dwyane Wade.

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

After kicking Ramon Sessions in a mild collision a few nights ago, Dwyane Wade was suspended for one game by the NBA. LeBron James and the Miami Heat will look to continue to build upon their lead in the eastern conference and shouldn't have much trouble against the Pistons.

LeBron will once again have more control and free reign over the Heat's offense and throughout their 6 game winning streak his numbers have been stellar. James is averaging a near triple double, with 25.8 points, 10.8 rebounds and 9 assists over the last 6 games.

"We want to have a bunker mentality and a road warrior mentality when we hit the road. We understand to this point we haven't played great basketball on the road." - James said.
