Wade, Heat Shut Down Detroit

The Heat won the game 101-96. In the first quarter, Wade hit a basket that put him over 2,000 points for the season. That makes him only the fifth player in NBA history to notch 2,000 points, 500 assists, and 150 steals in a single season.

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.
