Heat, Wizards meet coming off losses

When the Washington Wizards visit the Miami Heat on Saturday night, it is likely that neither team will be in a good mood. Both teams were defeated on Friday night, but Miami’s home loss to the Indiana Pacers was particularly galling to Heat fans. Miami (5-6) led 102-98 with less than 90 seconds left in the game.

Olynyk’s putback off Wade’s miss lifts Heat past Wiz 113-112

Kelly Olynyk certainly wasn’t counting on Dwyane Wade to miss. When Wade did, Olynyk was in the perfect spot.
