Wade, Heat Shut Down Detroit

Miami also inched ever closer to hosting a playoff series. The team is now three-and-a-half games back from Atlanta for the fourth spot in the East.
Oh, in completely unrelated, unsymbolic news, Japan eliminated the United States from the World Baseball Classic last night.
