The Miami HEAT lost 105-101 to the Washington Wizards Tuesday night, snapping a six game winning streak. The loss drops the HEAT to 12-4 on the season. Th HEAT return to action Thursday night when they host the New York Knicks.

Impact Performance of the Night: LeBron James recorded his first triple-double of the season with 26 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists. James started slow but came on strong during the second half. In the fourth quarter he scored 11 points and got open shots for teammates all over the floor. Unfortunately for the HEAT, the shots didn’t fall.

The Deciding Run: There really wasn’t a short run that decided the game. The Wizards built an early lead and held on in the second half. They were able to respond to HEAT baskets throughout the second half.

Play of the Game: With the HEAT down four points late in the fourth quarter, LeBron James threw a crazy bounce pass to Dwyane Wade under the basket that resulted in a layup. How James and Wade were able to connect there, we’ll never know.

Efficiency Rating: Offensive Efficiency: 105.1; Defensive Efficiency: 109.6

Trend to Watch: Tonight, the HEAT’s open threes didn’t fall like they did in other contests. In their close games against Denver, Milwaukee, Cleveland and others, the HEAT used three-pointers to catch opponents and then eventually knock them off. Ray Allen and Mike Miller got clean, open looks, but they rimmed out. Those shots are still the looks they HEAT want. It will be interesting to see if the HEAT go back to that well the next time a game gets tight.

The Takeaway: It’s an early December loss that we’ll probably forget come playoff time, especially considering the HEAT were without three rotation players. However, the loss gives the HEAT some game film that will show them where to get better. Losses, while inconvenient, can be tremendous learning tools. It’ll be interesting to see how the HEAT respond.

Notes: Chris Bosh finished with 20 points, 12 rebounds and four assists. Dwyane Wade added 24 points. Mario Chalmers left the game early with a finger injury. Norris Cole and Shane Battier were inactive, both are recovering from injury.

take a chill pill man, it's only a game. It's funny because the Heat are pretty good and the Wizards are laughable with how bad they are doing, so when a team like that beats a great team you got to make jokes, even fans got to make jokes. And it's cool, because now I don't have to worry about Knicks beating Heat. I was worried before, but since Miami lost I'm not a worried, trust me I'm not a big Heat fan, so I don't root for them(don't root against them either anymore, they are a team like the Kings that are just there in NBA). But I want to see the Knicks lose to the Heat badly, so I was hoping the Heat would lose so they had a monkey on there back to help them play much better vs Knicks

actually ace's solo projects are great, and I guess Hellogoodbye sucks since Joe isn't in the band anymore.

And you know those weren't jokes, those were questions.

Every dog has his day especially since the Heat were missing two key players like Battier and Chalmers, also not having Cole hurts.

well then we got something in common. You don't like Ace much and I don't like Heat much, I like talking with fans though all the trash talk is in good fun and you learn something from other fans. I've learned their are a few good Heat fan(ones who liked them before Lebron and Bosh)

I figured it out.

The Heat are used to one scrub player going ham against them on any given night.

Thing is...the Wizards are a team filled with scrubs. The Heat never had a chance!

Imitation is the best form of flattery

@WindhorstESPN: Battier (knee), Chalmers (finger), Cole (groin), Haslem (hip) all expected to be available for Heat vs. Knicks.
