Chris Bosh scored 28 points and Dwyane Wade had eight in his preseason debut as the Miami Heat beat the Detroit Pistons 112-107 on Thursday night.

James Jones added 12 points and LeBron James and Michael Beasley had nine each for the reigning NBA champions. James had seven assists for the Heat (2-0).

Wade, who sat out the preseason opener, played 21 minutes and had four assists.

Will Bynum had 28 points and Andre Drummond added 21 points and 11 rebounds for Detroit (0-1), which committed 23 turnovers.

Beasley scored all of his points late in the third quarter to help the Heat take an 89-79 lead to the final period. The Pistons got close in the final minute and Josh Harrellson almost tied the game with a long heave that rimmed out with .6 seconds left.
