The Heat they still have a lot of problems. Seventh defeat in eight games for the current runner-up in the competition, who does not rearm and begins to really suffer in the Eastern Conference. The Wizards they also made blood, even without having Russell Westbrook in their ranks. The alarms begin to go off in South Beach, which already had its star Jimmy Butler on the court.
In addition, those of the capital of the United States went from less to more. They came back from a 13-point deficit in the third and fourth quarters and won. A failure by Butler and two by Dragic in the last minute prevented him from turning the electronic around again and Herro’s error in the final triple left the game without extra time.
Bradley Beal, author of 32 points, was the main protagonist of the meeting. In addition to hitting both free throws to secure the victory, he reached his 17th game scoring 25 or more and broke the record set by Michael Jordan at the start of a season. Also outstanding are rookie Deni Avdija (13 points) and Hachimura (11) and Bertans (11). In the premises Tyler Herro was the most scorer with 20 goals.
The Wizards have had two wins in three games to get to five. That has helped them to leave behind the Pistons, the worst team in a conference in which the Heat are 7-14 and are already next in the table.
