Record against the Wizards last season: 3 Wins, 1 Loss

Like virtually every other team in the league, the Washington Wizards struggled against the Miami Heat last year and that won’t change this upcoming season. As the defending NBA champions, the Heat are basically a lock to lead the Southeast division once again.

Last year, the Wizards picked up one win against the Heat which was viewed as a bit of a fluke victory, especially in the absence of John Wall. Despite being overwhelming outmatched by LeBron James, the Wizards actually do have some advantages over the Heat. For instance, the only real issue in Miami’s roster is their lack of depth in the front court. Washington definitely has the significant edge with Nene and Emeka Okafor, but that usually won’t result into many “W’s” in the win column against the Heat.

The Heat are still the favorites heading into the season, and unless something extremely unexpected happens, they’ll certainly remain atop the division.

    I hope you are right. Second, behind the Heat, is a good place to be. I am really looking forward to this season. Washington needs to have a chip on their shoulder.

      Agreed. I’m hoping they’ll exceed expectations. I can’t see why they couldn’t/won’t finish with a better record than the Hawks.

      Thanks for the comment!
