Game Story

MIAMI (Ticker) -- The Philadelphia 76ers were without their franchise player and the Miami Heat set a franchise record for home wins.

The 76ers battled without suspended superstar Allen Iverson but did not have enough and succumbed, 92-77, to the Heat, who won their 13th straight home game.

"We played as hard as we could tonight," Heat coach Pat Riley said. "We respect the Philadelphia 76ers, even without Iverson. They have a 6-4 record without him in the lineup. We played a much better second half defensively and we had to adjust our train of thought tonight without Allen in the lineup."

Iverson was suspended one game by 76ers coach Larry Brown for missing this afternoon's shootaround. The All-Star guard and NBA leading scorer, who is nursing a bruised right shoulder, has missed a handful of practices and shootarounds this season.

Iverson apparently called to say he was sick and that prompted a half-hour conversation between Brown and Sixers president Pat Croce, who mediated a meeting earlier this season between Brown and Iverson.

"It's an accumulation of things, not just tonight," Brown said before the game. "I've let too much go this season."

"I don't buy that," said Iverson, who has had several run-ins with Brown in the past. "They should've taken action when it happened. I thought I was being responsible by calling in and telling somebody but apparently it didn't mean anything. It's like they don't trust me. This organization is shaky right now."

Without having to worry about defending Iverson, Tim Hardaway had a sensational game with 18 points, 14 assists and nine rebounds for the Heat, who won 12 straight home games from February 15-March 26, 1993.

"We played well in the second half, played good defense and good offense," Hardaway said. "I've got my legs back under me and I'm feeling good."

After a rough start, the Heat have settled in nicely at American Airlines Arena. The building opened in January and Miami dropped three of its first five games, including losses to lowly Vancouver and Chicago. But the Heat have not lost at AAA since January 18 and have the league's longest current home streak.

"The streak is nice but all that matters is that we win games," Riley said. "We have nine of the last 13 games at home and we need to take advantage of that."

Philadelphia also was done in by former Sixer Bruce Bowen, who scored 11 of his season-high 16 points in the fourth quarter. The 76ers traded Bowen to Chicago in the Toni Kukoc deal and the Heat signed him after the Bulls waived him.

"I believe good things happen to good people," Riley said. "Bruce is going to be a role player and he comes with no baggage. He is part of our team."

"I'm just going out and doing my job," Bowen said. "It's still defense first but it just so happens that guys are making the open pass to me."

Miami is 3-0 against Philadelphia this season and has won 11 of the last 13 meetings.

Theo Ratliff scored 20 points to lead the Sixers, who trailed 50-43 at halftime and never got any closer. In the second half, Philadelphia had five possessions with a chance to get the deficit below seven points and came up empty on every one.

Alonzo Mourning scored eight points and Hardaway seven in the first quarter as the Heat raced to a 29-21 lead. But the Sixers rallied with a 17-4 burst and grabbed a 41-38 edge on a layup by Eric Snow with 3:54 left in the second quarter.

Hardaway capped a 7-0 burst with a 3-pointer that closed the half and the Sixers did not score on their first two possessions of the third quarter, quickly falling behind by 11 points. A 3-pointer by Bowen with 1:51 left gave Miami a 71-57 advantage.

The Sixers closed to 72-65 before Bowen made a 3-pointer with 7:49 left. Philadelphia battled back to 75-68 but Hardaway made a free throw and Bowen drilled another 3-pointer for a 79-68 bulge with 4:39 remaining. Miami led by at least nine points thereafter.

"I thought we defended great but they made a lot of tough shots," Brown said. " They're a great team and when they're making shots they're a tough team to handle. They do everything well. They defend and use their bench well."

Mourning had 21 points, eight rebounds and six blocks for the Heat, who shot 47 percent (39-of-83) from the field, including 9-of-13 from behind the arc.

Aaron McKie started for Iverson and scored 14 points. Kukoc and Matt Geiger added 10 apiece for the Sixers, who shot 44 percent (34-of-77) and have lost three of four since a four-game winning streak.
