Olynyk's putback off Wade's miss lifts Heat past Wiz 113-112

WASHINGTON (AP) Kelly Olynyk certainly wasn't counting on Dwyane Wade to miss. When Wade did, Olynyk was in the perfect spot.

Olynyk grabbed the rebound off Wade's errant turnaround jumper and layed in the go-ahead basket with 0.2 seconds left Thursday night, lifting the Miami Heat to a ragged 113-112 victory over the Washington Wizards, who probably could have used sidelined center Dwight Howard's rebounding skills in their season opener.

Olynyk was booed every time he touched the ball, on account of a past playoff fracas with the Wizards when he was with the Boston Celtics. He certainly got to enjoy the way this game ended, after Miami trailed by as many as nine points.
