LeBron James scored 23 points, dished out eight assists, grabbed seven rebounds and had three steals as the Miami Heat broke their three game losing streak with a 99-90 victory over the Washington Wizards at the American Airlines Arena in Miami, Florida Monday night.
James, who did not attempt a free throw for the second consecutive game, got a lot of help from the other two members of the big three.
Chris Bosh scored 22 points and grabbed seven rebounds while Dwyane Wade had 22 points, six assists and five rebounds.
It was Wade who carried the Heat when they needed him most, scoring 13 of his 22 in the fourth quarter.
With the Heat down by one in the fourth quarter, Wade led a 12-0 run that close the game out. Wade started the run with a three-point play and ended it with a layup that gave the Heat a 95-84 lead with just 3:13 to play.
Bradley Beal led the Wizards with 18 points, Martell Webster scored 17, Drew Gooden poured in a surprising 15 and Marcin Gortat had 14 points, 18 rebounds and four assists.
However, that was not enough to offset poor performances from John Wall and Trevor Ariza, who combined for just 13 points on 4-of-19 shooting.
The Heat are now 44-17 and the Wizards are 33-30.
