Tuesday, November 18th (All times eastern)
Miami Heat (5-5) at Washington Wizards (1-6), 7:00 p.m.
(Sports Network) - A pair of Southeast Division rivals square off tonight, when the Washington Wizards welcome the Miami Heat to the Verizon Center.
Miami has alternated wins and losses over its last six games and suffered a 107-96 loss to the Toronto Raptors on Sunday at Air Canada Centre in the opener of a short two-game road swing.
Dwyane Wade had a game-high 29 points and added eight assists while rookie Michael Beasley had 13 points and six boards for the Heat, who are just 1-4 on the road this season. Wade is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game with a sprained right ankle.
Washington fell to 1-6 this season after Friday's 97-77 decision to the Heat down south at AmericanAirlines Arena.
Antawn Jamison had 15 points and 10 boards for the Wizards, who returned to their losing ways following the club's first win of the season Wednesday over the visiting Utah Jazz. Washington was the last team to record a victory on the young season after opening the year with five straight losses.
The Wizards are only 1-2 as the host in 2008-09. They could be without Antonio Daniels on Tuesday as the guard is doubtful with a sore right knee.
Miami ended a four-game losing streak to Washington with Friday's 20-point victory in South Beach.
The Heat have won 16 of the last 21 overall meetings with the Wizards, who have won two straight and three of four as the host in this series.
