Last night at American Airlines Center in Miami:

SEEN AND HEARD

Miami’s Dwyane Wade has established himself as one of the top players in the league. That was evident in the playoffs last season and was ratified with his selection as a starter in the All-Star Game. With his selection to the 2008 Olympic Team an almost foregone conclusion, he will have more big games in which to perform.

But as good as he is, Wizards coach Eddie Jordan maintains Miami is still center Shaquille O’Neal’s team.

“It’s the owner’s team,” Jordan joked at first. “I don’t want to get on Shaq’s bad side or on Wade’s bad side. But I’ll say it’s still Shaq’s team. I think he is the senior guy who has won the championships. He allows Wade to do his thing late in games, but I’d say it is Shaq’s team.”

KEY PLAY

Antawn Jamison missed two free throws with 15.5 seconds to play.

BY THE NUMBERS

15 Consecutive wins for the Heat against the Wizards.
