Martell Webster scored 23 points, Chris Singleton added 17 and the Washington Wizards used a huge second half to beat the Miami Heat 101-94 on Wednesday night.
The Wizards trailed by 14 at the half but turned it on after the break to zip past the Heat, while LeBron James sat out the fourth quarter for the defending champions.
Dwyane Wade led the Heat with 23 points and Chris Bosh added 18. James finished with 13 points and six assists.
Jan Vesely had 11 rebounds for Washington.
James felt his team's sloppy play in the third quarter - which included seven turnovers - set the tone for Washington's comeback.
''We came out in the third quarter and turned the ball over too much,'' James said. ''That allowed them to get back in the game. We can learn from every game, no matter if it's preseason.''
The Heat welcomed back Mario Chalmers and Udonis Haslem, who each missed the opening six preseason games because of quadriceps strains. Chalmers finished with eight points and five assists and Haslem had eight rebounds.
Bosh and Wade each went 5 of 6 from the floor in the opening quarter and James was 3 for 6 with three rebounds and two assists for Miami, which opened the game on a 12-1 run.
''It was the first time for all of us to get out there together,'' Wade said. ''To come out with that start, it felt good. ''

While the San Antonio Spurs and coach Gregg Popovich didn't get a chance to see NBA Finals MVP LeBron James in their preseason visit to Miami on Saturday, Popovich knows enough of James to see that the all-star forward is improving after winning his first championship.
