Game Story

MIAMI (Ticker) -- The Miami Heat sprung their own version of MJ on the Washington Wizards. Mike James scored all 10 of his points in the final 13 minutes and used his confounding quickness to lead the Heat to a 93-83 victory over the Wizards, who had a three-game winning streak snapped. A second-year guard from Duquesne and one of the NBA's more improved players, James stabilized the Heat after they gave away the lead late in the third quarter. He helped compensate for the fourth-quarter absence of Eddie Jones, making big plays on both ends of the court. "When I'm playing like this, I'm feeling good about myself," said James, who made just 3-of-9 shots and handed out five assists. "I'm not worried about who's guarding me and who's on the court." "I thought Mike was a huge catalyst for us getting back on top," Heat coach Pat Riley said. "He made some big plays down the stretch." While James provided a spark, the real MJ struggled. Washington's Michael Jordan scored 21 points but made just 9-of-27 shots and was unable to rally his team in the final period. A rare sellout crowd of 16,500 was on hand for Jordan's last visit to American Airlines Arena, and James provided a nice show. "They were all screaming for me - MJ," James joked. "EJ (Jones) said I'm not ready for that yet. I'm Mike J." Rookie Caron Butler scored 20 points to lead six players in double figures for Miami, which stopped a three-game slide. Jerry Stackhouse scored 24 points for Washington (29-30), which was denied a chance to move above .500 for the first time since January 20. "They scored on nine straight possessions (in the fourth quarter)," Wizards coach Doug Collins said. "When a team does that, you can't win. They deserve to win. They outplayed us physically and knocked us around." The Wizards held a 63-59 lead late in the third quarter, but James made a jumper, a steal and a feed to Butler, who scored and was fouled. His three-point play gave Miami the lead for good. James had a driving layup to open the final period and Brian Grant added a jumper for a 68-63 lead. Jones fouled out with 8:45 to go, but James made a circus layup at the other end for a 75-69 advantage. "I told him in the first half that he was hesitating on his shot," Jones said. "I told him to get out there and shoot the ball with confidence. In that third and fourth quarter, he made big plays for us." "The jump shot was off," James added. "Sometimes you just can't depend upon it. You have to do other things, so when I started penetrating, I started to see the floor and everything just started opening up. I started to see open guys and open floor. I just made plays trying to go to the basket." A basket by Grant and 3-pointer by Travis Best gave Miami an 80-70 bulge with 6:42 remaining. Jordan sank a layup but did not score again. James hit two from the line, then made a steal and found rookie Rasual Butler for a long jumper. Rookie Rasual Butler made a baseline shot and James fed Caron Butler for a 3-pointer and an 89-75 lead with 2:41 to play. "Teams don't know what he's going to do because he's a great finisher," Grant said. "The thing that's allowing him to get there now is he's not only taking it to the hole, but he's finding people." Jones scored 16 points, Grant added 13 and 14 rebounds and Best scored 13 points for the Heat, who shot 41 percent (33-of-80) and committed just nine turnovers. Bryon Russell scored 11 points and recent signee Anthony Goldwire added 10 for the Wizards, who shot under 37 percent (28-of-76) and were beaten on the boards, 44-39. The Heat led by 11 points in the second quarter before settling for a 45-38 halftime advantage. Consecutive jumpers by Rasual Butler and two free throws by Best made it 57-45 midway through the third period. Goldwire had a three-point play and 3-pointer in a 14-0 burst that gave Washington a 59-57 edge with 2:32 to go. "Finally, we closed the game out," Riley said. "We had a nice lead in the third quarter, but the same thing that's happened to us happened to us again. But we gathered ourselves." "We got in a good rhythm in the third quarter, but once we got into the fourth, we let them score," Jordan said. "They were off and running."
