The Miami Heat were just coming off a painful loss to the Chicago Bulls the other night. They didn't want another bad finish again, now facing the Washington Wizards. Well, the Heat had a challenge, but thanks to Dwyane Wade, they were able to get by.

Wade scored 41 points as the Heat went on to beat the Wizards, 121-113, to improve to a record of 43-16. LeBron James had a solid performance, dropping 25 points along with nine rebounds and seven assists. The Heat were able to get a win, managing the fourth quarter.

"I got a couple to fall for me, and as a scorer, once you see the ball go through the basket, now you're going," Wade said. "I hit some jump shots and that opened up my game, and all I was getting from the sideline was 'Don't stop shooting.'"

The win makes the Heat the first seed in the Eastern Conference, as they are a half-game ahead to the 41-15 Boston Celtics.  Chris Bosh was able to overcome a 1-18 shooting-performance the other night, putting up 15 points. Mario Chalmers helped out with 14.

Nick Young played great for the Wizards, having 38 points. John Wall got a double-double, having 24 points and twelve rebounds. JaVale McGee also did well, having 18 points and 17 rebounds.

It was Young and Wade all night, as both combined for 79 points.

"He's one of the best players in the league, but at the same time I'm not going to show him too much respect out there," Young said. "It's just like every other player. I'm going to go out there, play hard, and play my best."

Miami will face Carmelo Anthony and the New York Knicks next on Sunday. Looks to be a good one.
