The Wizards will travel to Miami to face the Heat on the second night of a back-to-back, trying to bounce back from Friday's loss to the Lakers.
The Washington Wizards travel to face the Miami Heat in a Southeast Division match-up Saturday night. The game is their second in as many nights. The Los Angeles Lakers were able to snap their four-game losing streak by beating the Wizards on Friday night.
The Wizards lead the season series against the Heat, 1-0, after upsetting LeBron James and Co. Dec. 4 (in front of RGIII, no less!). There will be no sneaking up on the Heat this time for the Wizards, who once again need to play pretty close to perfect if they want to beat the defending champs.
On the other hand, the Heat haven't looked this vulnerable in some time. They've lost three of their last five games and have been woeful on defense. If Nene can play up to his healthy capabilities inside, the Wizards could do the unthinkable and go 2-0 against the Heat in an 11-day span.
Game Date/Time: Saturday, Dec. 15, 7:30 p.m. ET
Location: American Airlines Arena, Miami, Fla.
