This Eastern Conference matchup includes two teams led by strong guard play.
The Washington Wizards are coming out of the all-star weekend looking to turn things around and make a look into the playoff contention.
The Miami Heat have played up to their expectations thus far in the season, and look to get a hot start to the second half.
The Washington Wizards are not breaking any necks this season and seem to be right around where everyone thought they would be, on the outside looking in. The Wizards went into the break going 2-3 in their last five games.
In that stretch the Wizards averaged 106.8 points per game and gave up an average of 108.6 defensively.
The Washington Wizards are led primarily by all-star point guard John Wall.
Wall is averaging close to a double-double with 20 points and 9.9 assists. Also close to averaging a double-double is big man Marcin Gortat averaging 13.5 points to go with 9.9 boards.
Bradley Beal has been producing when available and not fighting injures, he is averaging 18.7 points per game.
The Wizards were last in action on the 11th where they were defeated by the Milwaukee Bucks 99-92. John Wall and Marcin Gortat both produced double-doubles.
Wall posted a 15 point, 10 assist game, while Gortat had 14 points to go with 10 boards.
The Wizards look to start hot against a conference foe, where they currently stand in 10th place in the Eastern Conference.
The Miami Heat are having a good year overall but seemed to fall off going into the break, going 2-3 to finish off the first half of the season. During that span, Miami was averaging a low 97.4 points and giving up 103.8 points per game.
The Heat are primarily led by product of the 2003 draft class with Dewayne Wade and Chris Bosh. Wade seems to have found some fountain of youth, scoring 18.7 per contest this year. Chris Bosh is averaging a team high 19.1 points to go with 7.4 boards.
Also producing is big man Hasaan Whiteside with 12.2 points, 11 rebounds, and a league high 3.89 blocks per game.
The Heat were last in action on the 9th against the San Antonio Spurs where they were defeated. Wade led the Heat in scoring putting up 20 points to compliment 5 assists. Chris Bosh was also able to produce 18 points for the Heat.
The Heat are look to solidify their spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs so players like Wade can get some rest later in the year. The Heat are currently in 5th place in the Eastern Conference.
