The Miami Heat beat the Pacers last night if they didn't go full stupid in the final three minutes and start turning the ball over and throwing up hero shots. The Washington Wizards look like a team that doesn't want to play together and is getting waxed every time they take the court. Washington had trouble inbounding the ball twice last night. I want no part of the Wizards right now. Give me the Heat and the small line.
