MIAMI, March 11 (UPI) -- Udonis Haslem sank a jumper with less than a second left Sunday night to give Miami a 106-104 victory over Washington and its sixth straight win.
Miami spurted to a 28-14 lead after the first quarter and looked headed for a rout over the Southeast Division leaders, who had been beaten at home Saturday night by New York, 90-89, when Steve Francis hit a three-pointer as time expired.
Miami held a 56-43 halftime advantage, but Washington took an 81-72 lead into the fourth quarter.
Eddie Jones led eight Miami players in double figures with 18 points.
The basket by Haslem countered a three-pointer by Gilbert Arenas with 3.1 seconds remaining.
The Heat have won their last 12 home games.
Arenas led Washington with 33 points, four rebounds, and six assists.
