Well, I don't think anyone saw this coming. The Washington Wizards picked up just their second win of the season by taking down the mighty Miami Heat 105-101 in Washington on Tuesday night. 

The Wizards ended the first quarter with a five-point lead and never looked back. 

The biggest difference in this game came from beyond the arc. The Heat were off from distance and shot just 8-of-28 from three-point land while the Wizards were a far more efficient 7-of-19. 

LeBron James tried to give the Heat the edge in this one and he went for a triple-double with 26 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists, but it was not enough.

Player of the Game: Jordan Crawford

Crawford came up huge for the Wizards. He led them with 22 points, and that included nailing three crucial free throws in the final 11 seconds.

 

What's Next

The 12-4 Heat aren't likely to spend any time lamenting this loss. They are still in great shape and they will return home for a big showdown with the Knicks this Thursday. That will be the first game of five-game home stand. 

Meanwhile, the Wizards will hit the road for a Friday game against the Atlanta Hawks and then return home for a Saturday contest against the Golden State Warriors.
