The Miami opened up the 2014-2015 season, their first without LeBron James since the 2009-2010 season, at home by hosting the Washington Wizards.
The Heat have won the last four division crowns and the Wizards, who advanced to the second round of the postseason last year, are considered the biggest challenger to the Heat’s throne in the Southeast Division this year.
The Wizards looked good early but the Heat bounced back to take a one-point halftime lead. They took a two-point lead into the fourth quarter and exploded for 35 points to take home a 107-95 win.
Chris Bosh was excellent, with a game-high 26 rebounds and 15 rebounds to go with four assists while Dwyane Wade had 21 points and Norris Cole scored 23. Drew Gooden and Marcin Gortat each had 18 to pace the Wizards.
However, the story of the game was forward James Ennis. He had just five points and two rebounds in 15 minutes but threw down a massive dunk on veteran forward Rasual Butler.
