Miami Heat lose game, Hassan Whiteside & Luol Deng to injury in D.C.
Painful loss for the Miami Heat
WASHINGTON – John Wall had 18 points and 10 assists and Bradley Beal added 18 more as the Washington Wizards sent the injury-ravaged Miami Heat to their sixth loss in seven games, 106-87 on Wednesday night.
Miami played without Dwyane Wade, who was scratched with shoulder soreness about a half-hour before the game. Halfway through the second quarter, starting center Hassan Whiteside abruptly fell to the floor and with a strained left oblique and did not return to the game.
Down to nine players, 33-year-old Amare Stoudemire scored a season-high 11 points in 21 minutes -- six more than he had played in his previous 14 games this season.
One of the Heat's remaining players, Luol Deng, who had scored 16 points, left the floor with 2:25 remaining, holding a towel to his face after getting poked in the eye by a Wizards player.
Chris Bosh had 18 points for Miami.
