Wizards Vs. Heat: Dwayne Wade Finds Scoring Touch, Leads Heat To 80-69 Lead After Three Quarters

Dwayne Wade's scoring troubles are over. And that is trouble for the Wizards. The Miami Heat take a 80-69 lead into the fourth quarter.

Wade scored 15 points in the third quarter after only scoring four in the first half. LeBron James has 25 points to lead all scorers. Andray Blatche and GIlbert Arenas continue to pace the Wizards with 20 points each. Nick Young has 11 points and JaVale McGee has 10 points.

There was controversy near the end of the quarter when Hilton Armstrong fouled Joel Anthony as he went up for a slam dunk. It looked as if Armstrong pushed Anthony, who hit the floor hard. Armstrong ran to Anthony's aid, but Juwan Howard pushed him violently. There were words exchanged, but no physical violence. The referees gave Armstrong a flagrant foul 2, which is an automatic ejection and could be a suspendible offense. Howard received a technical foul.
