MIAMI - Miami Heat Coach Erik Spoelstra said he felt good about Monday night's game against the Washington Wizards the second forward LeBron James arrived at AmericanAirlines Arena for a walk-through. Actually, there was no walking involved - James sprinted in, came up to every player and coach and said: "Let's go! Let's get ready for this game!"

MIAMI -- The two-time NBA champion Miami Heat snapped a rare three-game losing streak, beating the Washington Wizards 99-90 on Monday night at AmericanAirlines Arena. Forward LeBron James led the Heat with 23 points, seven rebounds, eight assists and three steals. Heat guard Dwyane Wade, playing on back-to-back nights despite his sore knees for just the third time in 12 opportunities this season, looked fresh in the fourth quarter, scoring 13 of his 22 points. Heat forward Chris Bosh added 22 points.
Playing well enough to beat most other teams in the NBA, the Wizards couldn't beat the Miami Heat for the second time this season on Monday night despite four players in double figures and 39 points from the bench. The WIzards (33-30) overcame 9-for-31 shooting in the first quarter, erased an eight-point halftime deficit and led by as many as four points in the third quarter. LeBron James scored 19 of his 23 points in the first half, and Chris Bosh (23 points, 10 of 14 FGs) and Dwyane Wade (22, 8 of 16) made the difference in the second half. Bradley Beal led the Wizards with 18 points and Marcin Gortat was the only other starter scoring in double figures with 14.
The Scoop:The team said they were going to see how he felt leading up to the second half of a back-to-back tonight, so Wade must be felling fine. It's the first time he's played in both games of a back-to-back set in over two months, but he should see his normal allotment of minutes. Fantasy owners can start him in the divisional game.
Dwyane Wade played in the Heat's 99-90 win over the Wizards on Monday, scoring 22 points on 8-of-17 shooting (6-of-6 FTs) with five rebounds, six assists, one steal and one block in 33 minutes.
The Scoop:It was pretty standard fare for the Heat outside of Mario Chalmers' 0-for-7 dud including six assists, one steal and one block. LeBron James scored 23 points on 10-of-15 shooting with seven rebounds, eight assists and three steals, and Chris Bosh was active with 22 points, seven rebounds, two steals and a block while hitting 10-of-14 shots (including two threes).
