Wizards will be a tough out once Beal and Nene are back. Much-improved team.
Wizards 0-1. Will have to win 52 of next 81 to now.
Really not worth fretting too much over this one. Heat made big plays late and the Wizards were shorthanded.
Wizards often struggle against perimeter-oriented bigs, so they have no chance against Bosh.
Finally caught up on my Wizards-Heat DVR. They gotta play Otto at the 2 for most of the game.
Wizards on an 8-0 run since Heat took 9-point lead. And Porter is playing the 2 down the stretch.
Dwyane Wade has a left calf contusion & is probable to return. Heat lead Wizards, 72-70 in fourth.
Heat 72, Wizards 70 entering the FOURTH and final quarter.
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.
Heat 72, Wizards 70 going into the fourth. Bosh scoreless in third, still with 19. Wade 4 of 11, and with an ailing calf.
Little behind in the Wizards game, but I can’t remember the last time I saw Wall this aggressive attacking the hoop.
John Wall just imposed his will on the Heat. 2 straight coast-to-coast layups give Wizards 66-64 lead.
And just like that John Wall puts the Wizards back in front.
Halftime of Heat vs Wizards: Bosh leads all scorers with 19 points, 16 of them in the second quarter alone.
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.
Heat 53, Wizards 52 at the half. Bosh with 19 pts.
Heat 53, Wizards 52 at half. Bosh with 19 poiints, five rebounds.
HALF: Heat 53, Wizards 52. Bosh hurting Gortat from the outside and everyone else in the post. He has 19p on 6/9, 5r.
Sloppy but entertaining first half in Miami. Bosh w/ 19, Pierce w/ 11 and Heat lead Wizards, 53-52.
Paul Pierce was an awesome addition to the Wizards.
Drew Gooden III just hit another jumper and leads the Wizards with 13p on 6 of 8.
Yalnız konu formadan açılmışken tüm tüm versiyonlarda Wizards'ı tek geçerim. Bu yeni laciler de pek güzel olmuş.
Remember, these are the Wizards without Bradley Beal and Nene.
Pace Pace Pace! When Wizards run not many teams can stop them.
Heat 4 of 14 from three-point range after that triple from Bosh. Heat 39, Wizards 37
Wiz may need to think about staggering Nene and Gortat when the former returns from suspension. No rim protection otherwise.
Wizards lead 28-22 after 1Q. They’re shooting 60 percent from the floor.
Wizards lead 28-22 after first quarter. Pierce fitting in nicely so far.
Wizards 28, Heat 22 at end of first. Spoelstra dared go an extended stretch without Wade or Bosh on court. Paid for it.
End Q1: Wizards 28, Heat 22. Deng: 6p, 2r. Bosh: 3p, 3r. Cole: 8p, 1a. Gortat leads WAS with 8p
Scoring change: Bosh’s shot to start the game now ruled a 3. So it’s 11-9 Wizards.
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.
Wizards 11, Heat 8, 6:23 left in Q1. Miami starts 3/12 FGs and 0/6 threes. Deng with 4p, 2r.
Rough shooting start for the Heat (2/9), but 3 o-rebs so far. Wizards up 7-6.
OK I’ve changed my mind on these Wizards alternates. They look great.
If you had Drew Gooden III as the Wizards’ starting power forward on opening night when the preseason started you’re pretty good.
Luol Deng vs. Paul Pierce: One in a Heat jersey, the other in a Wizards jersey. Odd.
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.
Drew Gooden, not Kris Humphries, to start at power forward for Wizards. Like Nene (suspended) but different.
The Wizards will win 50-plus games for the first time since 1979. 52 wins. Eastern Conference Finals against Bulls -- after LeBron goes down
