Heat Vs. Wizards Score Update: Washington Crushing Depleted Miami By 25 At Half

The Washington Wizards are looking for their sixth straight win to close out the 2011-2012 season on Thursday night, and they're well on their way with a 57-32 lead after the first 24 minutes. Miami is playing without LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh and the Wizards took complete advantage from the tip, racing out to a double-digit lead after one quarter.

While Randy Wittman's club did not have a player in double figures, they did shoot 57 percent from the floor in a total team effort on the offensive end. Nene, Jan Vesely, and Maurice Evans lead all scorers with nine points a piece. Cartier Martin, who's starting in place of the shut down Jordan Crawford, added five points. John Wall has already dished nine assists.

Miami, on the other hand, continues their miserable offense without the Big 3. They were awful in Boston on Tuesday, and again they're shooting just 32 percent from the floor. They've committed nearly as many turnovers, 9, as they have made field goals, 12.

Washington will look to continue to pour it on in the second half and finish the season with the six-game streak.
