Dragic, Whiteside lead Heat to 114-111 win over Wizards

WASHINGTON (AP) — Goran Dragic scored 22 points, Hassan Whiteside added 18 and 18 rebounds and the Miami Heat held on for a 114-111 victory over the Washington Wizards on Saturday night.

James Johnson had 17 points off the bench for Miami, which scored its most points in a game this season and got its first back-to-back wins.

Dion Waiters scored 16 points to help the Heat total six players in double figures in their first road victory since their season opener at Orlando.

Bradley Beal scored a season-high 34 points for Washington in his second game back from a hamstring injury.

John Wall also hit a season high with 34 points and Marcin Gortat scored 10 along with 16 rebounds. No other Wizards hit double figures on a night Washington lost starting forward Markieff Morris to a sprained right ankle in the second quarter.
