The Miami Heat made some time for President Barrack Obama recently, and the timing of that meeting was likely because of their impending match with the Washington Wizards. This one tips off at 7 PM EST, and if you were looking for the TV info then look no further.

Picking the Heat to cover the spread (-6) in this one over John Wall and company. We will have to see if the Wizards can make the playoffs this season, and can tell you that many of my friends from the DMV would be quite happy to be able to catch a playoff game in their own city. It has been quite a while, and when you are a fan-base that misses the days of Gilbert Arenas that is when you know things are truly rough.
LeBron James made some comments about Kevin Durant’s shot selection that made me raise my eyebrows.
“I get jealous sometimes when I look over at KD and he’s like 16-for-32 (from the field) and then 14-for-34. … Man,” James told ESPN.com’s Tom Haberstroh. “I’m not much of a forced-shot guy. But there are games where I have it going, and then at the end of the game, I’m like, damn, I shot just 12-for-16? Why don’t I get up at least six or seven more? I definitely notice it.”
Will have to keep track on if James gives himself a bit more of a green light in the coming month. Couple more previews coming at you, and then be on the look out for some hot new content over at Rant Sports Prep. Keep it breezy, and Chi-towners stay warm out there.
