The Heat travel to Washington on Tuesday night, looking to continue their six-game win streak. LeBron James leads Miami with 24.7 points, 8.9 rebounds and 6.5 assists per game.

The Wizards won their first game of the season last week but still sit with a disappointing 1-13 record. Jordan Crawford leads the Wizards in scoring during John Wall's absence with 13.1 points per game.

Minnesota Timberwolves at Philadelphia 76ers, 7:00 p.m. ET, Fox Sports North

Kevin Love has not missed a beat since returning from injury, leading the Wolves with 21.7 points and 15.3 points per game. The Timberwolves are 7-8 this season and 2-4 since Love's return.

The 76ers saw their three-game win streak come to an end Saturday against the Chicago Bulls and will look to get back in the win column Tuesday against the Wolves. Guard Jrue Holiday has played magnificently early on with 18.5 points and 9.3 assists per game.

Oklahoma City Thunder at Brooklyn Nets, 7:30 p.m. ET, NBA TV

The Nets also saw a win streak end this weekend, but they enter Tuesday's matchup with a respectable 11-5 record. Deron Williams has become the face of the new-look Nets, carrying a 3.0 assist-to-turnover ratio through 16 games.

The Thunder have won eight of their last nine games. Kevin Durant scored 20 points and Russell Westbrook added 18 points and 10 assists in Oklahoma City's latest win against the New Orleans Hornets.

Phoenix Suns at Memphis Grizzlies, 8:00 p.m. ET, Fox Sports Arizona

The Memphis Grizzlies own the best win percentage in the Western Conference as they welcome the Goran Dragic and the Phoenix Suns. Zach Randolph is averaging 16.3 points and 12.3 rebounds this season as the key piece of a strong Memphis frontcourt. For the Suns, Dragic seems to have no problems with his new team, leading the Suns in scoring, assists and steals.

Los Angeles Lakers at Houston Rockets, 8:00 p.m. ET, Comcast Sports Net Houston

The Lakers have lost four of their last six games to drop to 8-9 on the season. Houston looks to take advantage of Los Angeles' early season struggles and avenge a 119-108 loss to the Lakers on Nov. 18.

Kobe Bryant and James Harden face-off as two of the NBA's top five scorers this season.

Indiana Pacers at Chicago Bulls, 8:00 p.m. ET, Fox Sports Indiana

Luol Deng has kept the Bulls afloat as they wait for the return of guard Derrick Rose, averaging 18.1 points per game. They welcome a Pacers team on Tuesday that has won four of their last six games, but lost to the Golden State Warriors their last time out.

David West leads Indiana in scoring, with 17.8 points per game, and rebounding, with 8.3 boards per game.
