The Washington Wizards are taking advantage of a resting Miami Heat squad, as the Wizards hold a commanding 57-32 advantage at the half.

With LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh all sitting out tonight's game in anticipation of the beginning of the NBA Playoffs this weekend, Norris Cole has led the way for Miami with 10 points. The Heat have been ice-cold from the field, shooting just 31.6% from the floor and 18.2 percent from deep.

For Washington, it has been a total team effort as the team has yet to have a scorer reach double figures. Nene and Jan Veseley are tied for the team-high with nine points. Washington is shooting a red-hot 57.1 percent from the floor.
