Miami Heat vs. Washington Wizards: Live Score, Results and Game Highlights
That's not a problem for Ray Allen, who led the Heat to a 103-98 win over the Washington Wizards, with 23 points, six rebounds, four assists and four steals.
The Heat jacked up 41 three balls, and they made 41.5 percent of them, which isn't too bad considering the defensive pressure, or lack there of, the Wizards displayed on the perimeter.
Mario Chalmers played like a true point guard, adding 13 points and eight assists in 30 minutes on the floor.
The Wizards didn't go down easily though. A.J. Price added 23 points on 8-of-12 shooting off the bench, and John Wall added a double double with 17 points and 11 assists.
The problem for the Wizards wasn't their offense, it was their inability to defend a Heat team without their three star players.
Either way, the Heat now own the NBA's best record and have home-court advantage throughout the entire playoffs.
They also set a franchise record for wins in a season with 62.
