Washington, DC - The Washington Wizards had a 34-point lead against the Miami Heat reduced to single digits Wednesday night before holding on for a 114-97 victory in Greg Oden's first game in more than four years.

John Wall scored 25 points, and Bradley Beal and Nene had 19 apiece to lead seven players in double figures for the Wizards, who shot a season-high 55 percent and closed the game with a 17-9 run to avoid an second straight embarrassing collapse at home.

Chris Bosh scored 26 points, and LeBron James had 25 points, eight rebounds, seven assists and four turnovers for the Heat, who have dropped three straight, all on the road.

Oden stepped onto the court for his first regular-season game since Dec. 5, 2009.

Oden, who has struggled to overcome knee injuries throughout his NBA career, played nine minutes and scored six points.
