GAME RECAP

Isaac Austin continued his strong play in place of the injured Alonzo Mourning by collecting career highs of 33 points and 22 rebounds in a 108-104 victory over the reeling Toronto Raptors.

Austin scored 10 points in the fourth quarter and secured the victory when he got behind the defense for an easy dunk with 3.1 seconds to play. Entering the game, Austin had been averaging 17.2 points and 8.9 rebounds as the starting center in place of Mourning, who has yet to play this season following knee surgery.

"The last time I scored 33 points I was in high school, and the last time I had 22 rebounds I was overseas," Austin said. "It's a great accomplishment and my teammates did a good job of getting me the ball."

Toronto led 77-75 early in the fourth quarter when Dan Majerle drained two straight three-pointers to put Miami ahead for good. Majerle, who was just activated from the injured list, finished with 16 points and was 5-of-6 from behind the arc as the Heat won their fifth straight home game.

"My first five (three-pointers) were all good looks. I expected them to go in," said Majerle, who had been sidelined with a back injury. "It's great to be back in uniform and not sitting on the sidelines."

John Wallace scored 28 points and Damon Stoudamire added 21, 11 assists and eight rebounds for the Raptors (1-11), who have dropped a franchise-record nine straight games and own the Eastern Conference's worst record.

"We lost a game but its not like we laid down," Wallace said. "It didn't go our way. We outplayed them. They escaped with a win and they know it."

Austin helped prevent the Raptors from taking the lead on two occasions down the stretch. Shawn Respert sank two free throws to pull Toronto within 85-84 with 6:48 to play, but Austin answered with a jumper just 17 seconds later.

Shortly thereafter, Miami's Terry Mills hit three straight baskets to build the lead to 95-87 with 4:06 to go. Wallace came back with three consecutive buckets to cut the deficit to two points with 2:31 left. But Austin drew the foul on the other end and hit two more free throws.

After Majerle made 1-of-2 from the foul line, Toronto's Marcus Camby made it 104-102 with nine seconds left when he converted a three-point play. Tim Hardaway was fouled immediately and sank both free throws before Wallace drained a fallaway jumper with 5.4 seconds to go. But the ensuing inbounds pass went all the way down court to a wide-open Austin, who faked the defender and put home the slam to seal the win.

"Ike was incredible. Dan coming in and making five threes means so much to us. Terry broke through in the fourth quarter and we needed everything we got," Heat coach Pat Riley said. "It's the mark of a team that is committed and conditioned."

Austin made 12-of-29 shots from the field and 9-of-9 from the foul line, setting career highs in free throws made and field goals attempted. He tied a career high by playing 43 minutes and became the fourth player in franchise history to record 30 or more points and 20 or more rebounds in a game.

Hardaway had 15 points and a season-high 13 assists for Miami, which scored 38 fourth-quarter points after getting held to half that in the final 12 minutes of a loss to Charlotte on Friday. Hardaway also notched his 5,000th career assist.

Mark Strickland started for Miami in place of P.J. Brown, who is sidelined with bronchitits, and chipped in nine points and eight boards.

Doug Christie scored 13 of his 15 points in the first half, helping the Raptors to a 51-46 halftime lead. Camby contributed 12 and eight rebounds but made just 5-of-15 shots for Toronto, which was unable to build on its 73-70 lead after three quarters.

"We've got to go out like madmen," Christie said. "It's at the end of games that we're losing. You saw what they did, we've got to learn to win like that, too."

The Raptors fell to 0-6 on the road and 2-6 all-time against the Heat.

"We've got to learn to win on the road. We can't embarrass ourselves," Christie added.
