GAME RECAP

Alonzo Mourning scored 19 points to lead five players in double figures and the Miami Heat used a pair of first-half runs to cruise to a 98-84 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers, who have lost a season-high seven straight games.

Tim Hardaway paced a 12-0 first-quarter run with five of his 15 points, giving the Heat an 18-11 edge. After Allen Iverson's layup with 51 seconds left in that period, the 76ers were held scoreless from the field until 4:01 remained in the second quarter as Miami took a 45-25 advantage with a 17-4 surge.

"Our defense was a factor," said Mourning. "We came out and set the tone with our defense. "From there we built a lead. We executed our offense and got a lot of transition baskets as well. Our offense stemmed from the defense we played."

Mourning had 13 of his points and nine of his 15 rebounds in the first half. Jamal Mashburn netted 14 points, Isaac Austin 12 and Dan Majerle 11 for Miami, which posted its seventh straight win over the 76ers.

Iverson and Derrick Coleman each scored 18 points and Jim Jackson added 14 for Philadelphia, which is mired in its longest skid since dropping eight in a row from April 2nd-14th of last season.

"They played a great first and second quarter," Iverson said. "It took until the third quarter to really come out and play basketball. We were struggling to come back. If we had played the first half like we played the third quarter, we would have put ourselves in a position to win."

Mourning's defense and hustle inspired the decisive second-quarter burst. He followed a block of Coleman's shot with a layup, then hit a 13-footer and a free throw to begin the run.

His teammates picked up where he left off. Austin and Mashburn scored before Majerle stroked a pair of three-pointers around a hook by Mourning, giving Miami a 45-25 bulge with 4:54 left.

The Heat held Philadelphia to four field goals while hitting 55 percent (11-of-20) of their shots in the quarter. Miami also sank all six free throw chances in the second while grabbing a 59-39 lead at the break.

"We had a lot of energy," Miami coach Pat Riley said. "We played with a lot of energy. We played well offensively. We rebounded the ball well. I thought that in the first half our offense was as good as we could be. We have a lot at stake to catch Chicago and Indiana (the Eastern Conference leaders). We have to make a move to bridge the gap."

Miami lengthened its lead in the Atlantic Division to 3 1/2 games over second-place New Jersey.

Philadelphia, which gets a week to recoup before facing Dallas at home, shot just 39 percent (27-of-70) from the field. Iverson converted on half of his 14 shots, grabbed seven rebounds and had five assists and five steals, but no other Sixer attempting more than seven shots was near 50 percent from the floor.

"The first-half effort to the second-half effort was ridiculous," 76ers coach Larry Brown said. "The little kid (Iverson) picked everybody up with the way he defended in the second half. But we all have to do that for 48 minutes."

Theo Ratliff got Philadelphia as close as 87-75 in the final quarter, but Eric Murdock hit a pair from the line and Majerle drained a three-pointer to sink the 76ers.

The Heat shot 45 percent (34-of-76) from the field and converted on 21-of-25 free throws. The 76ers also shot well from the line, hitting 26-of-29, but they were unable to keep from sliding a season-worst 16 games under .500.
