Shaquille O'Neal wasn't at his best. Again, it didn't matter -- Dwyane Wade saw to that.
Wade controlled the game last night with 31 points, including a critical 3-point play with 1:05 left, and added a career-high 15 assists, helping the Miami Heat stay perfect in these playoffs with a 108-102 win over the visiting Washington Wizards.
Miami leads the Eastern Conference semifinal series, 2-0. Tomorrow's Game 3 is at Washington, where the Heat have won 11 times in their last 14 tries.
Eddie Jones added 21 points, O'Neal 16, Damon Jones 14, and Udonis Haslem had 14 points and 13 rebounds for Miami.
Antawn Jamison, playing with tendinitis in his right knee, had a playoff career-high 32 points for Washington.
Gilbert Arenas added 28 for the Wizards, but the third member of their high-scoring trio, Larry Hughes, missed his first 11 shots and finished with 15 points on 5-for-17 shooting.
Wade continued his brilliant postseason run by making 10 of 15 shots and grabbing seven rebounds. In the first three quarters, Miami had 29 baskets, 22 made by Wade or set up by his passes.
The Heat needed him to be especially sharp because the Wizards wouldn't go away.
Jamison hit a floater from 12 feet with 1:24 left to bring Washington within 5, but Wade answered with a 3-point play 19 seconds later.
He drove past Arenas, darted left, drew contact from Jamison, changed hands with the ball, and scored. The free throw gave Miami a 105-97 lead -- and the Heat escaped.
Spurs 108, SuperSonics 91 -- Manu Ginobili came off the bench and livened the offense with his usual array of layups and long jumpers, making 9 of 11 shots and scoring 28 points, leading host San Antonio past Seattle for a 2-0 lead in their second-round series. Tim Duncan was his usual steady self with 25 points and nine rebounds for San Antonio.
Since a stunning loss at home in the playoff opener against Denver, the Spurs have won six straight by an average margin of 16 points.
Seattle's Ray Allen shook off a sprained ankle that knocked him out of the opener and scored 25 points in 42 minutes. Rashard Lewis scored 22. The Spurs, who shot 53 percent, have led for all but 62 seconds in this series.
