Ira Winderman

Heat 5 of 24 on 3-pointers before Chalmers hits three to put Heat up 88-83.

Lang Greene

Chris Bosh is 3-of-4 from three-point range tonight. The rest of the HEAT have shot 2-of-20 from beyond the arc. Ouch.

Mike Prada

Finally caught up on my Wizards-Heat DVR. They gotta play Otto at the 2 for most of the game.

Jorge Castillo

Wizards on an 8-0 run since Heat took 9-point lead. And Porter is playing the 2 down the stretch.

Jorge Castillo

Drew Gooden III just did it again. Pump faked a defender, dribbled, pull-up and fouled. He hit 1 of 2 and Heat lead 84-82 w/5:40 left.

Ira Winderman

And then Napier steal and go. Rookies . . . leading the Heat? Riley/Elisburg . . . brilliant!

Ira Winderman

James Ennis just did something, somehow, that resulted in two points. Two rookies on the court to start the fourth. For the Heat.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Dwyane Wade has a left calf contusion & is probable to return. Heat lead Wizards, 72-70 in fourth.

Joseph Goodman

Heat 72, Wizards 70 entering the FOURTH and final quarter.

Jason Lieser

End Q3: Heat 72, Wizards 70. Bosh has 19p, Norris Cole with 20. Wade is in the locker room with an apparent L leg injury.

Ira Winderman

Heat 72, Wizards 70 going into the fourth. Bosh scoreless in third, still with 19. Wade 4 of 11, and with an ailing calf.

Surya Fernandez

Heat absolutely need some scoring from Ennis and Napier (0 points combined) right about now.

Surya Fernandez

Wade calls the timeout as soon as the Heat secure the jump ball and heads straight to the locker room.

Ira Winderman

Well, at least the Heat have a variety of . . . uh . . . shooting guards in reserve.

Jorge Castillo

John Wall just imposed his will on the Heat. 2 straight coast-to-coast layups give Wizards 66-64 lead.

Joseph Goodman

Shawne Williams with his first basket. He's 1 of 8. Lotta tweets about Nene and Beal being out, but Heat really missing Josh McRoberts.

Surya Fernandez

Surya Fernandez

Halftime of Heat vs Wizards: Bosh leads all scorers with 19 points, 16 of them in the second quarter alone.

Jason Lieser

Heat shot 43% in the first half, 5/18 from 3. Bosh & Cole combined to go 5/9 on 3s.

Joseph Goodman

Heat 53, Wizards 52 at the half. Bosh with 19 pts.

Ira Winderman

Heat 53, Wizards 52 at half. Bosh with 19 poiints, five rebounds.

Jason Lieser

HALF: Heat 53, Wizards 52. Bosh hurting Gortat from the outside and everyone else in the post. He has 19p on 6/9, 5r.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Sloppy but entertaining first half in Miami. Bosh w/ 19, Pierce w/ 11 and Heat lead Wizards, 53-52.

Surya Fernandez

Cole is now the second Heat player after Bosh to reach double-digits in points in the first half.

Ira Winderman

Things you didn't hear the last four years: Can the Heat survive with Chris Bosh out of the game?

Joseph Goodman

Heat 4 of 14 from three-point range after that triple from Bosh. Heat 39, Wizards 37

Joseph Goodman

Deng out with a "slight right foot sprain." He will likely return, according to the Heat.

Ira Winderman

Heat listing Luol Deng with a strained right foot, expected to return.

Ira Winderman

Wizards 28, Heat 22 at end of first. Spoelstra dared go an extended stretch without Wade or Bosh on court. Paid for it.

Jason Lieser

Heat shot 36% in Q1, including 3/11 threes.

Jason Lieser

End Q1: Wizards 28, Heat 22. Deng: 6p, 2r. Bosh: 3p, 3r. Cole: 8p, 1a. Gortat leads WAS with 8p

Joseph Goodman

And now rookie Shabazz Napier off the bench for the Heat.

Joseph Goodman

James Ennis off the bench in the first quarter for the Heat. Fans clapping like they already love the guy.

Joseph Goodman

Great shot distribution by the Heat so far, but no one's hitting shots.

Surya Fernandez

I was right, they just changed that first Bosh shot to a 3-pointer. Heat are now 1-6 from 3-point territory.

Ira Winderman

So Heat actually opened 1 of 1 on 3-pointers.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Miami starts 0-for-6 from 3, and Wizards lead 11-8. Heat shot 36.2 percent from 3 last season. Will be a challenge w/ this roster to match.

Jason Lieser

Wizards 11, Heat 8, 6:23 left in Q1. Miami starts 3/12 FGs and 0/6 threes. Deng with 4p, 2r.

Ira Winderman

Heat now listed 0 for 6 on 3s, although Bosh's will likely be reviewed.

Shandel Richardson

Heat have already attempted five 3-pointers.

Jorge Castillo

Every member of the Heat starting 5 has shot a 3. They haven’t made 1.

Ira Winderman

Heat open 0 for 5 on 3-pointers.

Jason Lieser

Rough shooting start for the Heat (2/9), but 3 o-rebs so far. Wizards up 7-6.

Charles F. Gardner

Heat check for Mayo and he misses a long 3. First miss. He has 13 points on 5-for-6 shooting.

Surya Fernandez

Bosh drills corner 3 as shot clock runs out to open the scoring for the Heat. Or at least it looked like a 3, the score says otherwise.

Ira Winderman

Luol Deng vs. Paul Pierce: One in a Heat jersey, the other in a Wizards jersey. Odd.

Jason Lieser

Great crowd tonight for the Heat opener vs Washington. Sold out and loud.

Surya Fernandez

#HeatNation arrived on time for the #Heat season opener at the AA Arena. burst.com/h/gf1649d
