Washington Wizards vs Miami Heat (By: Miyagi)
The Wizards have lost the first quarter in all their last 5 games (and their last 4 home games) which is odd since we are talking about the perfectly balanced NBA. Miami's First Q record on the other side is 3-2 in their last 5 games.
The Wizards rank 9th in the league in points scored in the first Q at home with 29.1 while the Heat rank 13th in points scored in the first Q on the road with 27.5.
The Wizards won the first quarter (25-24) in their previous meeting with the Heat at home and they can do it again and stop that poor streak with sloppy starts in their last 5 games. The Heat are on the second game of a back to back set as they come from that demoralizing loss to the Bucks yesterday (87-116) and they will have to deal with fatigue today against a team that loves to play in a very high pace. As a very experienced team, the Heat should balance and preserve their energy levels and so, I can see the hosts finally having a strong start and the lead after the first Q, no handicaps though cause a draw always possible.
