Game Story

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Ticker) -- Jamal Mashburn scored 10 of his 16 points in the first 4:58 as the Miami Heat made quick work of the New Jersey Nets, 95-76, despite playing without center Alonzo Mourning.

Mashburn exploited the absence of injured Nets forward Keith Van Horn at the outset, hitting three layups, a tip-in and a 19-footer. His layup gave the Heat an 18-6 lead with 7:02 to go in the first quarter.

"We miss Alonzo, but everyone wants to be successful," said Mashburn. "We put forth the effort and it showed. We know we had to shut them down from the start, everyone came out and made a conscious effort."

Clarence Weatherspoon and Dan Majerle each added six points in the opening period as Miami shot a blistering 75 percent (15-of-20) from the floor en route to a 33-15 lead. New Jersey shot only 7-of-25 in the quarter and never recovered.

Miami has won four straight road games and six of its last seven overall to open a two-game lead over Orlando for the Atlantic Division lead and the top seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs. The Heat also lead the Indiana Pacers by 2 1/2 games for the top spot in the East.

"I think it's important to win the conference, especially if there's a seventh game in a series," said Heat coach Pat Riley. "The home team has a real advantage.

Riley moved into second place on the all-time wins list with 945, passing Bill Fitch. Riley, however, is still 203 behind the leader, Atlanta Hawks coach Lenny Wilkens.

"When I got my first win, I never thought I would get to 900," Riley admitted. "(But) nothing beats winning a championship."

Playing their third game in as many nights, the Heat won their second straight. Mourning missed the game with an eye injury suffered in Monday's 90-65 victory over Cleveland and will be re-evaluated Wednesday in Miami.

"We had to step up without Alonzo Mourning," Riley added. "He is one of the best competitors I've ever known in the game, I think he's an MVP candidate. He's tops in almost all the offensive categories."

The Heat blew a 16-point fourth-quarter lead at home against the New York Knicks on Sunday before belting undermanned Cleveland by 25.

Chris Carr scored 18 points and Kerry Kittles added 17 for New Jersey, which was coming off Sunday's stunning 120-98 rout of Indiana. Stephon Marbury, who had 26 points and 20 assists in that win, was held to 10 and six in this loss.

"(Tim) Hardaway pressured me from sideline to sideline," said Marbury, who was 4-for-14 from the field. "A couple of times I turned around and thought he was gone, but he was still there. Riley had an excellent game plan tonight and they took me out of my game, and they came out and outplayed us."

Weatherspoon had a hook shot and Mashburn had a tip-in 37 seconds into the game for the Heat. Mark Hendrickson had a layup for the Nets, but Majerle drilled a 3-pointer to make it 7-2. Kendall Gill hit a jumper, but Mashburn had a 19-footer and a steal by Hardaway led to an easy layup by Mashburn and an 11-4 cushion.

Hardaway added a 20-footer before P.J. Brown made a free throw. Gill sank a jumper to make it 14-6, but Mashburn had a pair of layups to cap the run.

"There's always a doubt with a big lead like that, but tonight we went and closed it out," said Hardaway. "Jamal played really big for us tonight. If we continue to play like we have been, I feel we can do some damage in the playoffs."

"We struggled from the outset of the game," said Nets interim coach Don Casey. "They started out hot and it was all downhill from there. We looked a little off in the first quarter. We took the 20 and the full timeout, but we couldn't stop them. Mashburn and Weatherspoon were outstanding in the first."

New Jersey got no closer than 13 points in the final three quarters and shot only 36 percent (29-of-80) from the field. The Nets were outrebounded 49-37 and outscored 48-26 in the paint.

Miami, which took its largest lead at 75-49 on a jumper by Voshon Lenard with 9:09 to play, shot 49 percent (43-of-87). Lenard finished with 14 points, while Weatherspoon, Hardaway and Mark Strickland added 12 apiece.
