The Miami Heat entered Sunday evening’s game against Washington off of a Friday night loss to the Pelicans. Could they defeat their familiar and feisty foe?

The Miami Heat came into Sunday’s win fresh off a loss to the New Orleans Pelicans, their high flying offense, and the sky walking rookie sensation in Zion Williamson. Losing that game due to a lack of effort in the first two frames, their resilience in the second half wasn’t enough to overcome. Sunday saw them try to move past that game and get a victory over an underachieving Washington Wizards team.

The Miami Heat couldn’t rest on their laurels as the Wiz always prove to be a more than worthy adversary whenever Miami and Washington matchup against each other. The game was rather competitive, with the Wizards even giving Miami quite a scare in the final quarter of the game. When it was all said and done though, the better team came out with the victory.

Say it ain’t so Toe?!

The Heat won the game, 100-89, but they did lose as well in the process. A huge reason why the game got so close and became as tight as it did would have to be the absence of Jimmy Butler from the lineup. In the midst of the third quarter, he was suddenly spotted headed to the locker room, but it was eventually reported that it was a toe issue.

Hopefully, this doesn’t cause him to miss any time moving forward. The Miami Heat do have another relatively easy game on the surface Wednesday, as they welcome in the Charlotte Hornets, but they need to get these wins with Boston faltering as they are at the moment. That is still in question though and we would hope for answers more sooner than later.

Duncan “Three_Bo” Robinson, Ladies and Gentleman

How long can Duncan Robinson keep up his current level of shooting? I mean, he has been pretty darn good all year long but for the last three games, he has been downright otherworldly.

To put it into perspective, he has sunk at least seven trey balls in each of his last three games. What a shooter!

You really hope that this is something he can keep going. Even if it isn’t at seven per game, the eight from the last game, or the nine from the one before that, you hope the best distance shooter in the game right now can knock down four treys or so a game for the rest of the year. It would go a long way towards the Miami Heat making a deep playoff run and who knows what from there.

The last question revolves around a guy that plays for the other team. To bring it back around, Bradley Beal is absolutely still in the crosshairs of Pat Riley, Miami Heat Faithful, and apparently, the Miami Heat players as well.

Alright Bam, sure we believe you, *wink wink. It’s as simple as this, can Riles somehow find a way to net beal without giving away all of the young talent, assets, or space? Would he want to risk anything or everything to do so?

Next. Trio of summer trade window options who could curb future droughts. dark

These are all questions that arose or were given more gravitas due to this game. We will watch it all play out regardless, but it is sure fun to wonder. Either way, a win is a win and we look forward to seeing them try and do it all over again on Wednesday.
