About 48 hours after the big victory over the runner-up, this time the Heat humiliated the Wizards 95: 122 • 4 points and 6 rebounds for the Israeli, a catastrophic game for Bradley Bill who scored less than 10 points for the first time in two years • Sunday evening: Abdia meets the team Of Michael Jordan
This time he was satisfied with only 4

The Washington Wizards and Danny Abdia returned to the ground tonight (Friday-Saturday) when they were defeated in Florida by the Miami Heat 122: 95, just two days after the Wizards achieved a big win on the same field in Florida.
Abdia, who recorded two good consecutive games in each of which scored 13 points, this time settled for only 4 (2/5 from the field, 0/2 from the three) in 16 minutes.
But with all due respect to the Israeli, Washington's story was the horrific performance of Bradley Bill, its biggest star and best scorer in the league (34.8 points per game on average).
For the first time in two years Bill scored less than 10 points in the game when he finished with just 7 points on 7% from the field (1/14).
Already from the first quarter the Heat took control of the game with a flood of threes, and two runs during the quarter of 0: 8 and 0: 9 gave them a 27:40 advantage after 12 minutes.
Scott Brooks ’boys again soaked up at least 40 points in the first quarter.
In the second quarter it had already become a real humiliation as the gap widened, to a 43:71 lead with the drop to the break.
In a few games this season Washington has already managed to erase a similar gap and get back to business, but this time the Heat have probably learned the lesson and not taken their foot off the pedal.
In the third quarter the advantage had already grown to 37 (61:98) and from then until the end of the game it became one big Garbage Time.
A 5:23 run in the fourth quarter only managed to reduce the humiliation, and reduce the gap to 18, but by the end of the hit they woke up again and finally won 95: 122.
Despite the dead minutes in the fourth quarter, the Wizards coach did not give Rocky Abdia minutes, in a decision that could be interpreted as puzzling.
Chin Alex Len was the leading scorer in the visiting ranks with 18 points.
Bill, also the Wizards' second star, Russell Westbrook also recorded a smooth game of 13 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assists.
Too few games used to issue quite a few triple-double games.
The one who almost scored a triple-double was Jimmy Butler in the winning ranks, who scored 14 points, handed out 9 assists and dropped 8 rebounds.
What’s amazing about Butler is that after 22 games this season of the Heat (14: 8) he has yet to score a single three-pointer this season (0/14).
Another standout in the winning ranks is guard Kendrick Nan with 25 points and 8 rebounds.
The next game of Washington, whose balance has deteriorated to 14: 5, will be this coming Sunday at a relatively early hour in Israel (20:00), due to the Super Bowl game that will take place on the night between Sunday and Monday.
The Wizards will be hosted by the Charlotte Hornets whose owner is none other than Michael Jordan.
