Shooting just 37 percent from the field, the Heat trail the 16-win Wizards by eight points at halftime.

Looking to notch its sixth consecutive victory, it wasn't exactly the best start for the Miami Heat. Facing the Wizards, who have won just 16 games this season and haven't strung more than two consecutive wins together since last April, the Heat have struggled, trailing 45-37 at halftime.

Scoring has proved to be slightly problematic, as center Dexter Pitttman is the only player for Miami to finish the opening 24 minutes with double-figure totals at 10. Moreover, they have also struggled percentage-wise, shooting just 37 percent from the field.

Because of lingering injury issues, guard Dwyane Wade played just three minutes during the first half and did not register a point. Also making things more difficult was the fact that LeBron James did not play during the half.
