Michael Beasley had the last shot Friday night. A bucket would have brought the Heat all the way back from a 35-point deficit against the Wizards. Just days earlier, Beasley spoke about his 10-day contract with Miami possibly being his last shot in the NBA. This was a golden opportunity for him.

Beasley failed to get the shot off in time (it missed, anyway). He dribbled and shot instead of catching and shooting with 1.3 seconds remaining.

“That was just lack of experience,” Beasley told reporters, according to The Miami Herald, after the

Heat's 99-97 loss. “I was just so anxious to get the last shot and do great for my team that I just had a brain cramp. That was my fault.”

With Heat coach Erik Spoelstra offering his support, a dejected Beasley walked off the court in D.C.

Beasley was a big part of Miami's comeback, scoring all 13 points of his points in the fourth quarter. The points he couldn't score will stay with him, though.

He has one more game remaining on that 10-day contract, Saturday at home against the Kings.

"It's one of those things that you think about not thinking about," Beasley told reporters before Friday's game, according to the South Florida Sun Sentinel. "It's one of those things where if it happens, it happens. I'm throwing everything I can into it."

Will that be enough? We're about to find out.
