heat 102 wizards 7212/15/2012 - American Airlines Arena, Miami, FLESPN BoxscoreNBA.com Game Highlights   Are you serious? Ok, fine. For the second game in a row, WE've had to nitpick out of a regressing group to find a player who remotely performed better than his peers, and for the second game in a row it'll have to be Cartier Martin. Martin shot well from the floor and knocked down four 3-pointers, finishing with a team high 18 points. But Martin's praise is mostly factored by his teammates inability to perform. Martin and Bradley Beal were the only Wizards in double figures, while the rest of their eight teammates COMBINED for 35 points. An absolute pity. Martell Webster: An indepth analysis on any player wearing red, white and blue uniform is simply unwarranted and unnecessary. Webster played 24 minutes and was about as useless as any other member of the starting five. He shot 1-6 and had a plus/minus of (minus) 30. Lebron James: The entire Miami Heat roster was so in tune that LeBron quietly lead all scorers with 23 points. It was like target practice as he dominated the Wizards from just about every angle. It was James who led the third quarter fury for the Heat, scoring 16 of Miami's 29 points. He also added 10 boards and 5 assists.   The GoodThe game finally ended after 48 minutes The BadThe competence level, or lack there of. If you haven't so already, have a gander at the plus/minus stat for the starting five. It really comes as no surprise when you've got JC (-26) shooting 2-12, Beal (-38) shooting 6-18, and Webster (-30( shooting 1-6.  The UglyThe tale of the tape for this match. The Heat were well rested, coming off a loss to the Warriors and were seeking unforgiving, blood thirsty revenge against the Wizards for embarrassing them on SportsCenter a few weeks ago. The Wizards, meanwhile, were on the tail end of four games in five nights, and were blindsided when Nene was a game-time decision to sit out. Let's just move on.
