The Wizards' four-game road trip began with a thriller against the Heat Wednesday night at American Airlines Arena.
Washington fought back from a 21-point deficit, but it wasn't enough to overcome an incredibly poor three-point shooting performance from the first half.
There was no shortage of big-time plays from either team, so here's a look at some of the best plays the Wizards made down in Miami.
Beal catches another big man slipping
Remember Monday when Bradley Beal crossed Andre Drummond out of his shoes before hitting a three at the end of the shot clock?
Now it looks like Beal's acquired a taste for embarrassing big men who dare to switch on him. Early on in this one, Beal broke Meyers Leonard's ankles with a nasty step-back jumper to send the Washington bench into a frenzy.
Ever since returning to the floor from a leg injury, Beal didn't quite look like himself against the Jazz, Bulls and Raptors. The last two games have been a different story, which is great news for the Wizards if they want to push for a playoff spot.
A poster dunk for the lead
The Wizards trailed by as many as 21 in this game but used a 24-6 run in the third quarter to get the deficit all the way down to one.
Then, Beal picked the best way possible to give his team a lead: A thunderous dunk on Kelly Olynyk.
Beal was the best player on the floor for either team and seemed to be on a mission from the opening tip.
Young players tend to take their cues from the star, and the Wizards' wherewithal to come back from 21 down started with Beal's effort.
Moving up the Wizards' history books again
This has turned into a Bradley Beal appreciation post, but that's just how this game went for the Wizards.
Beal entered the game tied with Gilbert Arenas for the sixth-most assists in Wizards history. It took him until the third quarter to tally the assist, but his teammates were missing open looks throughout the first half.
Beal is known more as a scorer than a distributor, so the fact that he's climbing the Wizards' all-time assists list speaks to how complete an offensive player he is.
