Mourning dunk keeps Heat hot
Published March 5, 2006
MIAMI - Alonzo Mourning's dunk with 1.8 seconds remaining gave Miami its first lead of the game, and the Heat beat the Atlanta Hawks 95-93 on Saturday night for their season-high eighth straight victory.
Shaquille O'Neal had 21 points and eight rebounds before fouling out with 3:45 left for Miami, which overcame a 17-point deficit despite playing without All-Star guard Dwyane Wade.
Wade was sidelined with a sprained wrist and is listed as day-to-day.
Joe Johnson scored 28 for the Hawks, who have lost 10 straight to Miami. Josh Smith added 21 points and eight rebounds.
After Salim Stoudamire missed a jumper with 20 seconds left, Miami called timeout. On the ensuing possession, the Heat worked the ball until Udonis Haslem missed a foul-line jumper.
The ball appeared to be going out of bounds underneath the Heat basket, but Derek Anderson hustled and shuffled the ball to Mourning, who delivered the game-winning slam.
Stoudamire, with Jason Williams defending closely, missed a jumper as time expired.
Johnson scored 14 points in the third quarter as the Hawks took a 73-62 lead into the fourth. O'Neal scored six during an 11-1 run that pulled Miami within 86-84 with 4:27 left. Anderson's 3-pointer finished the run.
Johnson had 12 points and Al Harrington 11 to help Atlanta open a 48-33 halftime lead. The Hawks held Miami to 31-percent shooting, including 1-of-10 from 3-point range, and had a 21-18 rebounding advantage.
The three on-court officials huddled around the video replay screen at the scorer's table for several minutes before ruling Johnson's 60-foot heave that banked in failed to beat the halftime buzzer.
Harrington had nine points to help Atlanta build a 27-15 lead after one quarter. Miami hit just 4 of 16 shots and missed all five 3-point tries.
Anderson, acquired from Houston on Feb. 23, made his first appearance for Miami after not dressing for three games. He scored 14 in 22 minutes.
NETS 105, RAPTORS 100 (OT): Vince Carter scored 31 and Richard Jefferson had 30, leading host New Jersey past Toronto.
Jason Kidd finished with 14 points, 15 assists and 13 rebounds for the Nets, his 72nd career triple-double and his fifth this season, tops in the league.
Morris Peterson led Toronto with 25 points and Chris Bosh had 23 - 21 in the second half, but none in a 10-minute span of the fourth quarter and overtime when the Nets took control.
SPURS 101, TRAIL BLAZERS 81: Tim Duncan had 22 points and 15 rebounds, and host San Antonio hit five 3-pointers in the fourth quarter to pull away from Portland.
Leading 69-65 after three, the Spurs opened the final period with consecutive shots from behind the arc by Brent Barry, Beno Udrih and Manu Ginobili.
Portland narrowed the gap to 80-75 on a layup and three-point play by Zach Randolph, but San Antonio closed out the game by outscoring the Blazers 21-6.
Zach Randolph paced Portland with 24 points. Darius Miles added 16 and Steve Blake 14 for the Blazers, who have lost 11 of their past 13 games.
NUGGETS: Kenyon Martin missed Denver's game against the Orlando Magic because of his troublesome left knee.
TIMBERWOLVES: Anthony Carter practiced with Minnesota before offering public apologies, if not explanations, for his arrest on drunken driving charges early Friday in Minneapolis. "I came and apologized to (general manager) Kevin McHale and to the coaching staff and the players for what I put the team through.," Carter said. "And I want to apologize to all the fans. ... We won't condone drinking and driving. It's just something that happened." The other night was my night and my fault." Coach Dwane Casey said Carter's status with the team has not changed.
