After two inspiring wins to kick things off after the All-Star break, the Wizards came back to earth on Saturday falling to the Heat 114-94.

From the get-go, it was clear the Wizards didn't have the same pep in their step for their third game in as many nights. The Heat started the game on a 13-5 run and never looked back. Goran Dragic was able to blow by whoever he wanted on the offensive end, and the Wizards were unable respond in kind at the other end, no matter how much they tried to push the pace to get easy shots.

In a game where it was clear they wouldn't have the legs to win, at least they didn't make things worse with silly mental mistakes. They only committed 6 turnovers and came up with more steals than the Heat. If not for that, the game could have been much, much worse.

Markieff Morris still needs time

It was pretty clear Morris wasn't comfortable on Friday night, and he shouldn't have been, considering he just came to town. So you can't really blame him for not being much further along 24 hours later, especially since they had to squeeze in a trip to Miami during that time.

Still, he looked quite a bit better in his second showing with the Wizards, at least on the offensive. He had 4 points, 3 boards and 2 steals in 12 minutes of action. He also had 5 fouls, which isn't as great but understandable.

Kelly Oubre had a nice dunk

This was the highlight of the game for Wizards fans.

Randy Wittman still doesn't understand the fatigue thing

In the Wizards' third game in three nights, Randy Wittman played Otto Porter 36 minutes, John Wall 33 minutes, Jared Dudley and Marcin Gortat 30 minutes each, and Bradley Beal 29 minutes while Kelly Oubre, Drew Gooden, and Jarell Eddie all logged less than 6 minutes in a game it was clear the Wizards weren't going to win by the time the fourth quarter began. It's okay to concede defeat early every now and then.
