Jamison scores 16,000th point as Wizards defeat Heat

November 28, 2009|By Sports Digest

Antawn Jamison scored 24 points, Nick Young added 22 and the Washington Wizards beat the host Miami Heat for the first time in seven tries, 94-84. Jamison, playing for the first time this season against the Heat after missing the first two meetings because of a shoulder injury, scored his 16,000th career point. Dwyane Wade had 18 points while struggling for Miami, which was without small forward Quentin Richardson for a fourth straight game.

Pollin: Abe Pollin is being remembered as a great friend and sports fan. The funeral for the Wizards owner was held at the Washington Hebrew Congregation. Pollin, the NBA's longest-tenured owner, died Tuesday at 85. Pollin gave Washington the Capital Centre, the Verizon Center, the NBA's Wizards, the NHL's Capitals and the WNBA's Mystics. He sold the Capitals and Mystics in recent years to Ted Leonsis. Leonsis called the service "very heartfelt."
