Whiteside, Heat lead by 25, hold on to beat Wizards 91-88

WASHINGTON (AP) For all the good Erik Spoelstra saw from his Miami Heat at the defensive end - building a 25-point edge, holding the Washington Wizards to 29 for a half, shutting out a hobbling John Wall until there were 5 1/2 minutes left in the game - they still barely held on for a victory.

"It was pretty harrowing," the coach said.

The Heat let their lead dwindle all the way down to one before holding on for a 91-88 victory over the Wizards on Friday night, led by Hassan Whiteside's 22 points and 16 rebounds and one very key 3-pointer with under a minute to go from an ill Dion Waiters.
