Heat regains control of boards in romp

MIAMI — The Heat hit the boards from the start and pulled away at the end.

Chastened by a rare home defeat, Miami had a rebounding advantage for a change Sunday and scored the final 21 to beat the woeful Wizards 99-71.

The Heat was coming off its third home loss Friday against Chicago. Miami allowed the Bulls 20 second-chance points, but Washington totaled four.

Miami, outrebounded by 38 over the previous three games, this time enjoyed a 50-39 advantage. Former Gator Udonis Haslem had 12 rebounds and Chris Bosh added nine.

"There were some better in-traffic battles, guys going up and trying to get it with two hands, guys getting up off the ground," coach Erik Spoelstra said. "That disposition to rebound was better. It's an effort thing."

GAME HIGHLIGHTS: Ty Lawson had 21 points and 10 assists, Danilo Gallinari hit a 3-pointer with 13.8 seconds left and the visiting Nuggets beat the Lakers 112-105. Los Angeles lost its third straight despite Dwight Howard tying a career high with 26 rebounds.

AROUND THE LEAGUE: The Rockets suspended first-round pick Royce White without pay for "refusing to provide services" required by his contract. White refused his assignment to Houston's D-League affiliate a week ago and has spent most of the season on the inactive list due to anxiety disorder and mental health.
