No LeBron James. No Dwyane Wade. No Chris Bosh. No contest.* If Verizon Center fans didn't get to see the Heat's varsity squad, they did get to see the Wizards cap a six-game win streak to end the season in a 104-70 shellacking of Miami's backups.
*See what I did there?
After the game, John Wall thanked the fans for sticking with the team and even mentioned how happy he was with the trade the team made to acquire Nene in the middle of the season.
"We like our team now," Wall said. Yup, that says a lot.
Quick notes after the jump.
• Mo Evans led the team with 18 points off the bench, while Eddy Curry was the only Heat starter to finish in double figures -- he had 10 points.
• Some more Wiz stats: John Wall had 12 assists and seven points in just 26 minutes in his final performance of the season. Kevin Seraphin and Jan Vesely capped an encouraging end to the season. (Seraphin: 15 points. Vesely: 11 points, 8 rebounds).
• The fans found a way to boo Andray Blatche in what could be the final game of his Wizards career, even though he didn't play. Blatche smile/grimmaced as he got booed one last time, when an old lady won his jersey after the last game of the season. He hugged her high fives some fans and walked out.
That's it for now. Gotta run down for postgame. More later.
