The Miami Heat, in a battle for the Eastern Conference's final playoff spot, will need to bounce back from a tough loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday when they head to the nation's capital to take on the slumping Washington Wizards on Saturday night.
The Bucks handed the Heat a 116-87 thrashing in Milwaukee. Miami could not stop Giannis Antetokounmpo, who finished with 28 points, eight rebounds and seven assists.
Miami fell to 35-37 this season, and the team's hold on the last Eastern Conference playoff spot grew weaker, as the Magic posted a 123-119 overtime victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday. That moved Orlando to 35-38, just a half-game behind the Heat.
