Pistons reach 7th in East, top reeling Heat 119-96

MIAMI (AP) If there's been an area of concern for Detroit coach Dwane Casey in this playoff push, it's been the play of the Pistons' second unit.

The concern was unfounded Saturday.

Ish Smith scored 22 points off the bench, fellow backup Langston Galloway added 15 points in the first five minutes of the fourth quarter to almost single-handedly turn a close game into a rout and the Pistons moved into seventh place in the Eastern Conference by downing the Miami Heat 119-96.
