Game Story

MIAMI (Ticker) -- For the first time in more than three weeks, the day did not belong to the Sacramento Kings. Instead, it belonged to Jamal Mashburn.

Mashburn celebrated his 27th birthday with 22 points as the Miami Heat equaled the best start in franchise history and stopped Sacramento's eight-game winning streak with a 98-88 victory.

Mashburn helped cool off the Kings, who had not lost since a 114-101 setback to Minnesota in Tokyo. Upon returning to the United States, Sacramento had roared to the best record in the NBA.

But in the opener of a five-game road trip, the Kings (9-2) shot just 38 percent (33-of-87) from the field and committed 19 turnovers, including eight by flashy point guard Jason Williams.

"They haven't faced an aggressive team like us so as long as we come to play defensively, we'll be all right," Mashburn said.

"We expected the showtime but our defense shut them down tonight," said Heat forward P.J. Brown, who scored 18 points. "They were doing some fancy things but made some bad turnovers at crucial points of the game."

The Heat (11-3) won for the third straight game without star point guard Tim Hardaway, who again sat out with a jammed right knee. Alonzo Mourning collected 16 and 11 rebounds for Miami, which matched its 11-3 start to the 1995-96 season, Pat Riley's first as Heat coach.

"Things are a little stagnant out there without him," Mourning said. "I know that when he comes back, we're a better ballclub and our offense flows a whole lot better."

"We need Tim back," Mashburn said. "He is our catalyst and one of the most important players on the team from the standpoint of knowing how to run the offense. You can't replace a guy like that."

Chris Webber had 18 points and 10 rebounds for the Kings, who came in leading the NBA at 108.3 points per game but were held below 100 points for just the second time this season.

"I really don't think our shots were falling," Williams said. "We've been playing good and this was maybe the first time we've played bad. But things like this happen and we just have to fight through it and try to get a win tomorrow."

In its first road game in 10 days, Sacramento did not put up much of a fight. They fell behind for good late in the first quarter and trailed by at least eight points the entire second half.

A jumper by Nick Anderson gave the Kings a 15-10 lead with 6:40 to go in the opening period before the Heat closed the quarter with a 17-6 burst. They took the lead for good at 18-17 on a 3-pointer by Dan Majerle with 3:43 remaining and six different players scored in the run, including Mashburn, who had five.

The Kings closed to a basket before the Heat took control with a 9-0 burst in the second quarter, all from the frontcourt. Reserve forward Mark Strickland scored a pair of buckets, including a dunk that stretched the lead to 39-28 with 6:23 left before halftime.

Miami led 52-39 at halftime and 78-65 after three quarters as Sacramento never got untracked. The Kings began launching 3-pointers and finished just 7-of-25 from behind the arc.

"We try not to play the score," Mashburn said. "When you start doing that, you start to get a bit lackluster with a lack of energy and focus. You can't worry abour eight- to 10-point leads. You just need to continue to play aggressive."

"We watched them on film and we knew they were going to be pretty aggressive," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "They weren't going to give us anyuthing going to the basket and were gonna make us have to kick the ball out. We realize that but we settled for some long shots when we could have gotten some 17-footers."

Clarence Weatherspoon had 11 points and 10 rebounds off the bench for the Heat, who shot 49 percent (39-of-80). Miami held a 53-38 advantage on the boards and overcame 22 turnovers.

"We did a good job defensively," Mourning said. "The guys that came off the bench played extremely well for us. In that third quarter, they pretty much held the fort for us while our front line was down. I think that was the difference tonight."

Williams had 17 points and eight assists but shot just 6-of-15, including 2-of-8 from 3-point range. Jon Barry added 13 points off the bench.
