AUBURN HILLS, Mich., March 23 (UPI) -- A big all-around game from Dwyane Wade Friday gave Miami control early and the Heat went on to down Detroit 88-73 for their fourth straight win.

Wade scored 24 points, grabbed nine rebounds, handed out five assists and came up with three steals.

The Heat have captured seven of their last nine. LeBron James added 17 points with 10 assists and Chris Bosh had 15 points.

The Pistons turned the ball over 23 times, hit only 38 percent of their shots and found themselves trailing by 23 points at halftime. It was Detroit's fourth consecutive setback.

Brandon Knight had four 3-pointers and scored 18 points to lead the Pistons.

Miami won its 15th road game of the season, joining Chicago and Oklahoma City as the only teams in the NBA with that many wins away from home.
