MIAMI — Goran Dragic scored a season-high 34 points, Hassan Whiteside had 17 points and 16 rebounds and the Miami Heat beat the Washington Wizards 112-101 on Monday night to snap a five-game slide.

Dragic scored 13 points in the fourth for the Heat, who opened a six-game homestand. James Johnson scored 14 off the bench for Miami, which won for only the third time in 11 games at home.

John Wall scored 30 points and Bradley Beal added 29 for Washington, which is 0-2 against Miami this season.

Dragic made 14 of 23 shots, on his way to his best scoring night in a Heat uniform.

When Dragic wasn’t on the floor, Miami was shaky. When he was, the Heat were usually in control.
