Game Recap

Tim Hardaway scored 28 points, Voshon Lenard added 24 and each hit a three-pointer in overtime to lead the Miami Heat to a 111-105 victory over the Toronto Raptors, who set a franchise record for losses in a season.

Alonzo Mourning added 23 points before fouling out and exchanging shoves with John Wallace in overtime for the Heat, who bounced back from consecutive losses and swept the season series with Toronto for the first time. The Heat climbed back within one-half game of Indiana for the second-best record in the Eastern Conference.

"It was a good win, and a win is a win," Hardaway said. "That's all that counts. We have to get ourselves right. We're not playing on defense, we're thinking. We just have to play. We did it at times tonight and we didn't."

Doug Christie scored 26 points for the Raptors, who may have had hope when the game went to overtime before suffering their 12th straight loss. Toronto had a five-game overtime winning streak snapped and all of its four wins since the All-Star break have come in overtime.

The Raptors fell to 15-62. They went 21-61 in their inaugural campaign of 1995-96 and 30-52 last season.

"We didn't get it done," Toronto coach Butch Carter said. "When you are playing the good teams, everybody has got to do their jobs. The guys had good energy and went after them. Our inexperience showed in the last seven minutes. Players should take more responsibility for the losses, as they will be rewarded for the wins. The bottom line, someday soon we have to get something done."

Miami, which erased a seven-point deficit in the final 3 1/2 minutes of regulation, scored the first five points of overtime. P.J. Brown hit a free throw to open the extra session, and after a miss by Wallace, Hardaway buried a three-pointer for a 102-98 lead with 4:06 to go.

A free throw by Mourning gave the Heat a 103-98 advantage, but on the next possession he fouled Wallace, who appeared to say something to Mourning. The two shoved each other before Mourning lunged at Wallace. However, he was restrained by female referee Violet Palmer.

Wallace sank both free throws to bring Toronto within three points with 2:36 left, but Lenard drilled a three-pointer 23 seconds later to make it 106-100. The Raptors cut it to three once more, but Marty Conlon hit four free throws in the final 34 seconds to keep Miami safely ahead.

Christie had 17 points in the first half, helping the Raptors to a 55-48 lead. Toronto's lead was still seven after Dee Brown's dunk with 3:53 remaining in regulation. But after baskets by P.J. Brown and Eric Murdock, Hardaway hit consecutive jumpers to give Miami a 95-94 lead with 1:26 to go.

"Tonight it took some gut play to get back in it," Mourning said. "There were calls that weren't going our way and we had to get by some obstacles. The playoffs are around the corner and this type of play isn't going to get it done."

A pair of free throws by Christie put Toronto back on top, but Lenard nailed a three-pointer for a two-point advantage with 52 seconds to play. Oliver Miller's layup tied it at 98-98 just 17 seconds later and the Raptors missed a chance for the win when Dee Brown missed a 20-footer at the buzzer.

Hardaway handed out 12 assists and P.J. Brown collected 10 points and 10 boards for the Heat, who shot 41.5 percent (39-of-94) from the field. Conlon had seven points and seven boards in 11 minutes for Miami, which was a dismal 25-of-42 from the foul line.

Wallace had 19 points off the bench and Miller and Dee Brown and Miller had 13 apiece for the Raptors, who shot 46 percent (39-of-84). Tracy McGrady added 12 points and a season-high 15 rebounds.
