The Miami Heat (45-17) are looking to continue to build momentum heading into the NBA Playoffs next week and a game against the Washington Wizards (16-46) should do just that.

LeBron James is looking to solidify and strengthen his candidacy for both League MVP and Defensive Player of the Year and tonight's game against the Wizards should help his case.

The Heat have won seven of their last ten outings and Miami is the best home team in the NBA while the Wizards are one of the worst road teams in the entire League. You can expect this game to be over early as the Heat should win this one in a rout as Washington shouldn't pose much of a challenge.
