MIAMI, Nov. 30 (UPI) -- Michael Jordan scored eight of his 22 points in the fourth quarter and Richard Hamilton added 19 Friday night as the Washington Wizards rallied for an 84-75 victory over the Miami Heat, who have lost 11 in a row for the first time in more than a decade.
Coming off Thursady's embarrassing loss to the Chicago Bulls, Miami seemed motivated for 26 minutes, but blew a 13-point lead in the third quarter and collapsed in the fourth.
Jordan was held scoreless in the third as Washington stormed back, but he came up huge in the final period.
Miami had a 70-68 lead on a layup by Anthony Carter with 9:28 to go, but the Wizards reeled off 10 straight points, highlighted by three jumpers from Jordan.
The Heat missed 11 straight shots during the run and did not score again until LaPhonso Ellis made a pair of free throws with 2:16 remaining.
Miami made six of 23 shots in the final period and suffered its 11th straight defeat -- the team's longest slide since dropping 13 in a row from Dec. 19, 1989-Jan. 13, 1990.
The Wizards snapped an 11-game losing streak against the Heat. Jordan made 10 of 20 shots, collected seven rebounds and had five assists.
Chris Whitney scored 14 points and Christian Laettner added nine and eight rebounds for Washington, which has won consecutive games for the second time this season.
Ellis led Miami with 24 points and Eddie Jones scored 13. Carter chipped in 11 points, but Alonzo Mourning was held to four while making two of seven shots.
