The Wizards fell on the road to the Miami Heat, 99-71, on Sunday.
The Wizards have just four wins on the season and only one on the road. The Wizards took the first game of the season series from the Heat back on Dec. 4 at the Verizon Center, but Miami has made Washington pay in the two games since the first meeting. The Heat won 102-72 on Dec. 15 before Sunday's result. The final game of the season series will be at Verizon Center on April 10.
Miami, which was in control by the end of the first quarter, was never in any real danger on Sunday and really pushed the game out of reach with a 30-point fourth quarter. Miami's LeBron James led all scorers with 24 points. Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and Ray Allen all reached double-figures in scoring for the Heat. Wizards guard Garrett Temple tied James for a game-high seven assists, but Temple was 0-for-7 shooting from the field and finished with zero points. Kevin Seraphin lead the Wizards with 14 points.
The Wizards next game will be on Monday at the Verizon Center against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
