Shandel Richardson

Wizards will be a tough out once Beal and Nene are back. Much-improved team.

Mike Wise

Wizards 0-1. Will have to win 52 of next 81 to now.

Mike Prada

Really not worth fretting too much over this one. Heat made big plays late and the Wizards were shorthanded.

Mike Prada

Wizards often struggle against perimeter-oriented bigs, so they have no chance against Bosh.

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.

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.

Mike Prada

Little behind in the Wizards game, but I can’t remember the last time I saw Wall this aggressive attacking the hoop.

Jorge Castillo

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

Shandel Richardson

And just like that John Wall puts the Wizards back in front.

Surya Fernandez

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

Jorge Castillo

Wizards down 53-52 at the half. Bosh leads all w/19p. Gooden leads Wizards w/13. Pierce has 11. Gortat has 10. Wall = 8p, 9a.

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.

Shandel Richardson

Paul Pierce was an awesome addition to the Wizards.

Jorge Castillo

Drew Gooden III just hit another jumper and leads the Wizards with 13p on 6 of 8.

Kaan Kural

Yalnız konu formadan açılmışken tüm tüm versiyonlarda Wizards'ı tek geçerim. Bu yeni laciler de pek güzel olmuş.

Ira Winderman

Remember, these are the Wizards without Bradley Beal and Nene.

Chris Miller

Pace Pace Pace! When Wizards run not many teams can stop them.

Joseph Goodman

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

Mike Prada

Wiz may need to think about staggering Nene and Gortat when the former returns from suspension. No rim protection otherwise.

Jorge Castillo

Wizards lead 28-22 after 1Q. They’re shooting 60 percent from the floor.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Wizards lead 28-22 after first quarter. Pierce fitting in nicely so far.

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

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

Jorge Castillo

Scoring change: Bosh’s shot to start the game now ruled a 3. So it’s 11-9 Wizards.

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.

Jason Lieser

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

Mike Prada

OK I’ve changed my mind on these Wizards alternates. They look great.

Jorge Castillo

If you had Drew Gooden III as the Wizards’ starting power forward on opening night when the preseason started you’re pretty good.

Ira Winderman

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

Jorge Castillo

#Wizards are wearing some shiny silver warmup jackets. I’m expecting a Mase cameo.

Alex Kennedy

Wizards-Heat is about to tip off. As I said last night, everyone should have League Pass this week. The NBA is doing a free preview.

Eric Koreen

It's awful. RT @iananywhere: Wiz Khalifa's 'We Dem Boyz' getting remixed here as 'We The North.' #Raptors #RTZ

#Wizards starting five: Wall Temple Pierce Gooden III Gortat. Heat: Cole Wade Deng Williams Bosh.

Joseph Goodman

Tonight's starters: For the #Heat: Cole, Wade, Deng, Shawne Williams, Bosh. For the #Wizards: Pierce, Gooden, Gortat, Temple, Wall.

Jorge Castillo

#Wizards Game 1 starters: John Wall, Garrett Temple, Paul Pierce, Drew Gooden III, Marcin Gortat.

Ira Winderman

Drew Gooden, not Kris Humphries, to start at power forward for Wizards. Like Nene (suspended) but different.

Surya Fernandez

#Heat starters: Bosh, Deng, Williams, Wade, Cole. #Wizards starters: Gortat, Pierce, Gooden, Temple, Wall.

Mike Wise

The Wizards will win 50-plus games for the first time since 1979. 52 wins. Eastern Conference Finals against Bulls -- after LeBron goes down
