Reggie Jackson scored 15 fourth quarter points in leading a raucous 99-98 Pistons comeback victory over the Miami Heat Saturday night.
After trailing by 15 points with 7:02 to play, the Pistons launched a furious comeback, closing the gap to one with under 30 seconds remaining.
Following a missed Dwyane Wade jump shot with under 10 seconds remaining, Jackson completed the comeback by reeling in the defensive rebound and racing the length of the floor for a go-ahead layup over the outstretched arms of Hassan Whiteside.
A last gasp shot attempt from Wade went begging, delivering victory to Detroit.
Jackson finished with 29 points (11-18) and 11 assists.
