In their final game of this years condensed lockout season, the Washington Wizards cruised by the Miami Heat on Thursday and finished with the 2nd worst record in the NBA.

Maurice Evans finished with a game high 18 points, John Wall tallied 7 points and 12 assists and Kevin Seraphin had 15 for the Wizards.

Norris Cole was the high man for the Heat with 14, Eddy Curry had 10 points and Mario Chalmers finished with 8 in the loss.

Miami's big 3 of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh did not play for the second game in a row. Wade had this to say about sitting out consecutive games and transitioning into the playoffs:

Obviously it's not ideal. I was really looking forward to playing a couple of games. But I know my game and we've been getting in some good practices and we'll be ready - Wade said

With the Philadelphia 76ers losing to the Detroit Pistons tonight, the Heat are set to face Carmelo Anthony and the New York Knicks in a star studded 1st round matchup on Saturday.

Game Notes

  • Eddy Curry started his first game for the Heat since 2008
  • Mike Miller injured his foot and left the game
  • The Wizards will have the seconds best lottery odd percentage only to the Charlotte Bobcats
