Head coach Randy Wittman may just be feeling the heat (no pun intended), and if John Wall cannot get this team to win a few games in a row then it will be rough sailing for Wittman.
The Wizards were faced with too much last night. When you see 25 points from LeBron James and also 24 points from Chris Bosh you are in real trouble and the Wiz could not keep up. Thanks to the tweet below for the update, and it is insane that the Heat assisted on 32 out of 37 field goals.

Dwyane Wade oddly compared his team to a relationship to a woman after the game which I found interesting to say the least.
“If you’ve been in a relationship with a woman for a long time,” Wade said. “You start getting comfortable. You stop doing the little things that you should do, that you did in the beginning. We’ve been together for a while. We’ve gotten comfortable. This is like a relationship. We got a little comfortable. Now, we’ve got to get back on the edge a little bit.”
We will have to wait to see if Wade and James can keep that edge on all year, but the only thing that is truly important is how they respond in the playoffs. As far as the regular season goes, yes you want to win games and build momentum, but health is the main thing to be concerned about. The Wizards on the other hand? They might be on the fast track to having a new coach.
