Michael Beasley has had a rocky start to his NBA career. However, Wednesday was a high point (no pun intended). Beasley dunked a Dwyane Wade airball at the end of the game between the Miami Heat and the Orlando Magic to give the Heat a 99-98 victory.
Beasley finished the game with 15 points and 12 rebounds. Wade, per usual, led the way with 24 points, six assists, four rebounds, three steals and two blocks.
The Magic, on the other hand, suffered a disappointing home loss. Jason Williams, starting in place of the injured Jameer Nelson, had 25 points and eight assists in 39 minutes. Dwight Howard had 12 points and 16 rebounds but only attempted five shots from the field.
Orlando had a five-point lead heading into the fourth quarter but that evaporated due to Miami’s aggressive play on both ends. The win improves the Heat to 9-5, while the Magic dropped to 11-4 with the loss.
