John Wall attended and spoke at Miyah Telemaque-Nelson’s funeral this morning. #Wizards

Mike Prada

Wiz aren’t 19-6 good (easy schedule, lots of close wins), but they’re good and improving many of their weaknesses. I’m encouraged.

Mike Prada

Heat shot 54% on 48 contested shots last night. Wiz shot 48.6% on 37 uncontested shots. Think Wiz played better than score indicated.

Jorge Castillo

Wizards players have brought up finals talk more and more lately. Before the season, they talked conference finals. Confidence is growing.

Jorge Castillo

John Wall: “We have an ultimate goal of trying to get to the finals. We know how much harder we have to work.” #Wizards

Vince Cellini

After @Washington Wizards end 5 g losing streak in Miami, @Miami Heat still have not won at home since Nov 23rd. Dropped 8 of 9 at AAA. Wall 20p 10a

Bill Simmons

Also - really like watching the Wiz cuz of PP.. He's in total savvy vet mode (like tonight in Miami). And Wall has been outstanding.

Jorge Castillo

Paul Pierce’s layup gives the #Wizards the 93-92 lead with 3:58 left in the 4th quarter.

Surya Fernandez

Wizards get their first lead of the second half.

Surya Fernandez

Heat keep answering back every time the Wizards make it close.

Surya Fernandez

Wizards have been very effective from mid-range.

Jorge Castillo

Looks like Rasual Butler twisted his left ankle. Limping a bit but staying in. #Wizards

Joseph Goodman

For three quarters, the #Heat has played its best basketball in more than a month. Heat 79, Wizards 76 entering the final period.

Joseph Goodman

#Heat 79, #Wizards 76 entering the 4Q. Deng with seven points in the 3Q. Heat was 8 of 22 from the field in the period but still leads.

Heat shooting 65.6 percent. Chalmers leads with 12 points. Heat 53, Wizards 52 2:00 2Q.

Joseph Goodman

Some quality minutes from Hassan Whiteside here in the 2Q. And by quality I mean he's got two rebounds. Wizards 47, Heat 44.

Jorge Castillo

#Wizards call a timeout and Randy Wittman isn’t too happy with Kevin Seraphin at the moment. Looks like Gooden will check in for him.

Joseph Goodman

Long arms of Whiteside disruptive there in the paint and a turnover leads to points. Timeout Wizards. Wizards 39, Heat 36

Joseph Goodman

Hassan Whiteside now in the game for Justin Hamilton and the Wizards immediately go to Nene.

Surya Fernandez

No surprise, the Wizards are really asserting themselves in the paint and causing plenty of damage.

Jorge Castillo

Joseph Goodman

#Wizards 29, #Heat 25 after the 1Q. Strong finish for Washington after beginning the game sluggishly. Heat shooting 52.6 percent.

Ira Winderman

Wizards 29, Heat 25 at end of first period. Could be worse, considering Wade 0 for 3 and scoreless after 42 vs. Jazz.
