After blowing a nail-biter in the final seconds vs the Magic, the Heat will have another opportunity to right the ship against the Wizards tonight.

NBA: Washington Wizards at Miami Heat Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Game Story:

After dropping a nail-biter in the final seconds against the Magic last night, Miami has an opportunity to redeem themselves this evening in Washington. They’ll face an explosive backcourt in John Wall and Bradley Beal, and a new face at center in Dwight Howard.

To win this one Miami will have to match Washington’s quick pace and limit turnovers (which killed them last night). The Heat are still missing three of their key rotational players in Wayne Ellington, Justise Winslow and James Johnson so expect to see more of Rodney McGruder and Derrick Jones Jr. Tip off is at 8PM ET.

Projected Starters:

Heat: Goran Dragic, Rodney McGruder, Josh Richardson, Derrick Jones Jr., Hassan Whiteside

Injuries: Heat: Dion Waiters (Out), Wayne Ellington (Probable), James Johnson (day-to-day), Justise Winslow (doubtful)

Wizards: Otto Porter Jr., Markieff Morris, Dwight Howard, John Wall, Bradley Beal

Injuries: Wizards: Thomas Bryant (Out), Troy Brown Jr. (Out)
