MIAMI (AP) - Coming off a rare home loss, the Miami Heat will try to rebound against the Washington Wizards.
That could be tough, because the Heat haven't rebounded well all season.
Poor board work was the focus of a team meeting Saturday. Players didn't practice but did review video of every rebound in Friday's home loss to the Chicago Bulls, when the Heat were outrebounded 48-28.
The Heat rank last in the NBA in rebounds, and while they nonetheless have the best record in the Eastern Conference, the team's biggest weakness could undermine its bid for a championship repeat.
The Heat rank first in the league in field goal percentage, second in 3-point shooting, third in turnovers and fourth in points per game. But they're being outrebounded by 2.8 per game.
