Miami, FL (Sports Network) - LeBron James compiled 23 and 10 rebounds as the
Miami Heat exacted a measure of revenge on the Washington Wizards with a
102-72 rout of their Southeast Division rival at American Airlines Arena.
The Heat were dealt a shocking 105-101 defeat in Washington to a Wizards team
that was 1-13 at the time back on Dec. 4, but ensured there would be no repeat
outcome this time. Miami never had a lead under double digits after the second
quarter and was ahead by as many as 35 points at one stage.
Dwyane Wade and Udonis Haslem each netted 13 points to help the defending
world champions bounce back from Wednesday's 97-95 home setback to Golden
State as well.
Bradley Beal and Cartier Martin were the lone bright spots in an otherwise
awful offensive display for Washington, which shot a meager 37.5 percent from
the field and committed 21 turnovers that the Heat converted into 30 points.
Beal paced the Wizards with 19 points, with Martin recording 18 off the bench
while making good on 4-of-6 attempts from 3-point range.
