Wizards Vs. Heat: John Wall's 13 Assists Give Washington Its Third Straight Win

In what can only be classified as “unexpected,” the Washington Wizards not only grabbed their third straight win for the first time in 12 months, but it also came against the Miami Heat, who currently hold the second-beast record in the Eastern Conference.

Leading by eight points at halftime, the Wizards nearly lost their advantage before pulling off an 86-84 victory over the Heat on the road.

As you could expect, guard John Wall played a significant role in the win, finishing with 13 points and 13 assists, helping three others finish in double figures, as well. Cartier Martin and Kevin Seraphin totaled 22 and 17 points, respectively.

Washington finished the game shooting 41 percent from the field, holding the Heat to roughly the same percentage at 40.

Miami had been looking to notch its sixth consecutive win.
