Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love?has suffered a fracture in his left hand, the team announced.?
The deck was stacked against them.
After a tough start to the season, which included losing Dion Waiters for the season, the Heat have hit their stride as they did last season.
The Pistons were in their worst swoon of the season, losers of their last eight games and nine of their past 10.
The Cavs got some things right while Wade was gone, beating the by seven and the Pistons by 17 to string together their first winning streak since mid-December. His injury means he'll miss February's all-star game in Los Angeles. Anthony Tolliver chipped in 20 of his own, while Ish Smith added 19, making it an impressive night for all five Piston starters.
James scored 21 points for the Cavs, but Cleveland was listless early and outplayed late - and the result felt secondary to Love's health. "My only focus is to be with my teammates and try to help them".
So Stanley Johnson stole the show instead.

The Cavaliers (29-20) play the Miami Heat (29-21) Wednesday on the second night of a back to back. On the other end, the Cavs defense allowed 66 points in the second half. He poured in three triples, and even had two and-ones as well.
Van Gundy was asked if Johnson will continue to play a prominent role once Griffin is integrated into the offense.
Luke Kennard didn't have it tonight. They may have to make a significant move to replace Love.
Said Isaiah Thomas: "He's a big part of this team, and it's gotta be the next-guy-up mentality". He hits 43% of his 3-point attempts, and also dishes out 5.4 assists a night. Westbrook finished with 10 assists, six rebounds and seven turnovers and made only five of 18 shots.
Paul George had 28 points for Oklahoma City, but zero in the fourth quarter. The Pistons have stumbled while he's been out with a sprained right ankle, and the team is facing the prospect of missing the playoffs in its first season at its new downtown arena. Head coach Stan Van Gundy told reporters that he is not sure whether Griffin will suit up for Thursday's contest against the Memphis Grizzlies.
Multiple reports surfaced in the offseason that this would be James' a year ago with the Cavaliers, after he was apparently disappointed in the front office's inability to land any of the available superstars to give the team another chance at an National Basketball Association championship.
