NBA Heat's super trio makes on-court debut

Miami Heat center Chris Bosh, left, sets a pick for forward LeBron James during a preseason game Tuesday night against the Detroit Pistons.

The hype hit the hardwood Tuesday night as the Miami Heat played their first NBA preseason game since superstars LeBron James and Chris Bosh joined Dwyane Wade on the team.

The Heat didn't disappoint, dominating the injury-plagued Detroit Pistons 105-89 at American Airlines Arena in Miami, Florida.

Wade left the game after just three minutes because of a hamstring injury, but Bosh scored 20 points and James was good for 18.

Wade expects to return to play in two weeks, the Miami Herald reported.James carried on with his signature pregame ritual of tossing a cloud of rosin into the air.

Parking lots that formerly charged $10 were charging $40 Tuesday night, and Miami's usual late-arriving crowd showed up in time for pregame introductions, NBA.com reported.

"You can tell it's an exciting time for this city," James said after the game, according to NBA.com. "And hopefully we can come through and do things that we need to do on the court to keep the fans excited."
