Dwyane Wade played hurt and Shaquille O'Neal played great, but the host Heat couldn't stop the Pistons in Detroit's 88-82 Game 7 win on Monday. Rasheed Wallace gave the Pistons the lead for good, sinking a free throw with 1:26 to play, and Chauncey Billups secured the victory, burying four foul shots in the game's final 15.5 seconds. Richard Hamilton led Detroit with 22 points, Wallace finished with 20 and Billups ended with 18. For the second straight year, the Pistons head to The Finals, which tip off Thursday in San Antonio (9 p.m. ET, ABC).
