The Miami Heat (43-17) will try to avoid their fourth consecutive loss when they host the Washington Wizards (33-29) in today’s NBA Game of the Day. This will be the third of four regular-season meetings between these two teams. The teams split the first two games between them and the winner of tonight’s matchup lead the season series two games to one.
The two-time defending champion Heat are coming off a disappointing 0-3 road trip and hope that a return to the friendly confines of AmericanAirlines Arena will help them avoid their longest losing streak in over three years. Miami has not dropped four straight games since a five-game skid from February 27 – March 8, 2011.
Prior to their 0-3 road trip, the Heat had strung together eight consecutive victories—including four straight at home. Miami, who has won five straight home games by an average of 15.4 points, haven’t lost a game at AmericanAirlines Arena since a 112-95 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder on January 29.
The Wizards, who have lost their last three trips to Miami, are currently on a five-game road winning streak. Washington has won its last five road games by an average of 12.2 points. Overall, the Wizards have won eight of their last nine outings, with the only setback coming in a six-point, 110-94, home loss to the Memphis Grizzlies on March 3.
