Heat lose 114-93 to Wizards; Pacers get top seed

The Miami Heat opted for rest for LeBron James and Chris Bosh over the pursuit of the Eastern Conference's top seed, and the Washington Wizards capitalized in a 114-93 breeze of a game Monday night that clinched the No. 1 seed for the Indiana Pacers.

Trevor Ariza scored 25 points for the Wizards, who shot 59 percent and made 14 3-pointers to move 1½ games ahead of the Charlotte Bobcats in the race for the East's No. 6 seed. Washington would secure sixth place if the Bobcats lost at Atlanta later Monday, thus avoiding the Heat in the first round of the playoffs.

Michael Beasley scored 18 points for the Heat, and Toney Douglas had 14 for the two-time defending champs, who will be the No. 2 seed when the playoffs begin this weekend.
