Saturday, November 20th, finds the Miami Heat facing the Washington Wizards in the second game of a home and home series that began in Miami on Thursday with the Heat winning 112-97.
Last season, the squads played three times with the Heat winning two of the three contests. The Heat holds the all-time record having bested the Wizards in 89 of their 132 matches.
After missing matches versus the Clippers, Jazz and Thunder because of a sprained ankle Jimmy Butler returned to play the last two matches versus the Pelicans and Wizards.
He followed up his triple-double versus the Pels with a 32 point, three rebounds, five assists, four steals effort versus the Wizards. Kyle Lowry was also back in the lineup after resting the game prior, to offer eight points and 12 assists.
Bam Adebayo also was back in the starting lineup after sitting the two prior games and came one rebound shy of a double-double with 20 points and nine rebounds.
Gabe Vincent (18) and PJ Tucker (15) were the other double-figure contributors as Duncan Robinson once again struggled with his shot (2 of 8 from deep) and Tyler Herro was out due to a wrist injury.
Markieff Morris (neck) has missed the last six games since the melee in Denver and is expected to remain out Saturday. Herro (wrist) was downgraded to out. Victor Oladipo (knee) has yet to play this season with no definitive return date.
Of the 15 games the Wizards have played, only five were against winning clubs, and only two of those resulted in wins – – the Grizzlies and Cavaliers.
There is debate over just how good this Washington team is and whether their ease of schedule is more to credit for the positive record or their overall ability. Washington is .500 on the road but three of the four losses again came against teams with records above .500.
In the loss to the Heat, Bradley Beal led his team with 30 points, six rebounds, five assists, a steal, and had six turnovers. Kyle Kuzma delivered a double-double of 19 points, 13 rebounds plus seven assists, and a steal.
Montrezl Harrell got the starting nod replacing Daniel Gafford who was out injured producing 12 points and nine rebounds. Rookie Corey Kispert scored 13 points as the only other double-figure contributor.
Spencer Dinwiddie was held out for rest but expected to suit up for Saturday. Gafford (thumb), Thomas Bryant (knee) are both questionable for this match.
Davis Bertans (ankle) and Rui Hachimura (personal) are both out with no update on a return date.

Free Miami Heat vs. Washington Wizards NBA Prediction:
In the first meeting, the Heat had a huge advantage at the line taking 24 free throws compared to 10 for the Wizards. Miami also forced 17 turnovers, scoring 20 points off them, and protected the ball on their end with only six turnovers (nine points scored).
Presumably, the Wizards will perform better at home (6-1) but if both Gafford and Bryant can’t go it leaves the Wizards thin upfront.
