GAME RECAP

Alonzo Mourning scored 31 points and Voshon Lenard added 25 as the Miami Heat pulled away in the second half for a 116-95 victory over the shorthanded Toronto Raptors, who played without the three players recently acquired from the Portland Trail Blazers.

With Alvin Williams and Gary Trent failing to complete their physicals in time and Kenny Anderson not yet joining the team, the Raptors again dressed only seven players. Center Marcus Camby remains sidelined with a sprained right thumb.

The Raptors acquired Anderson, Williams and Trent from the Trail Blazers on Friday in exchange for disgruntled guard Damon Stoudamire and forwards Walt Williams and Carlos Rogers. Alvin Williams and Trent were in uniform earlier in the day and took part in pre-game drills. But they were declared ineligible for the game when they did not complete their physicals in time and will not receive clearance to play until results of MRI exams are made available on Monday.

"In the last two games, we have not won and have made mental errors," said interim Toronto coach Butch Carter. "We all need to get on the same page. They have to grow and I have to grow. It's a test for them and a test for me. We both have to get into better shape."

Toronto used a 14-4 run to take a 37-34 lead on Oliver Miller's layup with 6:22 left in the first half. Miami answered with an 11-0 spurt to go up 45-37 on Dan Majerle's three-pointer with 3:54 left in the half.

Majerle, who will play a more prominent role with third-leading scorer Jamal Mashburn sidelined for at least two months after undergoing surgery on a fractured right thumb, scored 11 points in 28 minutes off the bench.

After Doug Christie opened the second half with a three-pointer to pull the Raptors within 57-54, Miami put the game away with a 21-7 burst. The Heat built a 78-61 cushion on Mourning's two free throws with 5:21 left in the period.

"It seemed both teams were going to try to outscore each other," Miami coach Pat Riley said. "They open up, trap everything at halfcourt, and all you have to do is attack and find the open man. They gave us plenty of shots. Alonzo's much more in control. He's drawing fouls and playing more focused."

"The team did a good job giving me the ball in the right spots," said Mourning. "Without them, I would not get those offensive attempts. Last couple of games, they've been pounding it inside."

Miami took its biggest lead at 106-81 on Majerle's two free throws with 5:17 to play. Tim Hardaway added 13 points for the Heat, which won for the sixth time in the last seven games to move a season-high 15 games over .500.

John Wallace had 25 points to lead Toronto, while Christie and Tracy McGrady added 17 apiece.

"They are a top caliber team," said Wallace. "We hung tough for awhile but they overcame us in the second half with their presence on the inside when we only had seven players. Zo (Mourning) was a big factor tonight. We're going to go out and work hard and try to salvage the season."

The short-handed Raptors fell to 0-2 under Carter, who was promoted when Darrell Walker resigned on Friday after the multi-player deal with Portland.

"This team was very physical," said Toronto guard Shawn Respert. "We sustained a bit longer than we did against New Jersey (a 130-115 loss on Friday) but they kept pounding the ball inside and that's what wore us down. That's one of the worst teams you want to play against shorthanded."

P.J. Brown had 11 rebounds for Miami, which outrebounded the Raptors, 42-24. Miami also made 28-of-35 foul shots, compared to 10-of-12 for Toronto. Mourning, a 63 percent foul shooter, was 15-of-19 from the line.

"I'm making an effort to work on my free throws and take advantage of it," said Mourning.

The Raptors have lost four straight and seven of their last eight.
