The outcome of this game is irrelevant in many ways. With Dwyane Wade exiting the game after just few minutes of play with a dislocated finger, the Wizards were placed in a no win situation. If you beat the Heat without the Big 3, then you are basically beating a group of washed up veterans and journeyman NBA players. Lose, and you reinforce the point that the Wizards have miles to go before they become a semi-competent NBA team.

So the Wizards won by two on a set play to Nene. Competent NBA team, or beating the team they should beat?

Special mention should go out to Cartier Martin for a career game and Mo Evans for hanging tough and delivering when it counted. Not to mention the contribution of Kevin Seraphin, who had his now usual solid outing, and and even demonstrated a bit of chippiness.

Actually, to hell with it. THE WIZARDS BEAT THE HEAT! I'm going out to celebrate and will have more tomorrow. Everyone go and dance in the streets.
