WASHINGTON (AP) - The Washington Wizards can't beat many teams, but they beat the best: LeBron James and the Miami Heat.
Perhaps inspired by the courtside presence of Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III, the Wizards (2-13) doubled their victory total this season with a 105-101 win over the Heat (12-4) on Tuesday, despite James' triple-double of 26 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists.
Jordan Crawford led Washington with 22 points, including three free throws in the final 11 seconds, while James missed a potentially tying 3-pointer with 3.9 to go.
While the reigning NBA champion Heat's six-game winning streak ended, the Wizards have won two of their last three games.
