Washington, DC (Sports Network) - The Washington Wizards have had next to no
success so far this season, but they've been more than able to hold their own
in recent meetings with the mighty Miami Heat.
Behind 22 points from Jordan Crawford and a 16-point, 10-rebound effort out of
Kevin Seraphin, the Wizards registered only their second victory of the
campaign with a shocking 105-101 decision over the defending world champions
at the Verizon Center, despite a triple-double from LeBron James.
A.J. Price added 14 points and Martell Webster scored 13 off the bench for
Washington, which entered the matchup with a league-worst 1-13 record but have
now won two of three following an 0-12 start.
The triumph was also the third straight for the Wizards over Miami dating back
to the latter portion of last season.
James racked up game highs of 26 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists, but the
Heat never held a lead after the 5:09 mark of the first quarter in seeing a
six-game win streak come to an end.
Dwyane Wade finished with 24 points in defeat for Miami, with Chris Bosh
putting up 20 points and 12 rebounds in the setback.
