LeBron James and Dwyane Wade know how to put on a show.
This is not really as good as the baseball-pass ally-oop from Wade to LeBron earlier in the year, but it comes close thanks to the block by LeBron at one end and the acrobatic finish by Wade at the other.
The Heat rack up a mountain of highlights in transition, but that happens in part because they are playing such good defense of late — like with LeBron making blocks in the paint — and that fuels the tempo I
The Wizards have a full roster of 15 players. They don’t qualify for a hardship exemption, which a team gets if four players have missed three straight games and will continue to be out. Only Webster and Alan Anderson definitely fit that bill. Gooden, who has missed five straight, might. But it’s unclear both how many of those absences were due to injury and when he’ll return.
Hollins is more center than power forward and doesn’t appear to fit well with Marcin Gortat. But at this point, Washington just needs big bodies. Hollins – a nine-year veteran who plays decent interior defense, lacks offensive skill and rebounds poorly for his 7-foot frame – is at least that.
