Game Story

MIAMI (Ticker) -- Anthony Carter and Eddie House made sure the Miami Heat did not miss Tim Hardaway.

Carter scored 17 points, House added 16 and the reserve guards combined for 20 points in the pivotal third quarter to lift the Heat to a 95-81 victory over the Vancouver Grizzlies, who lost their fifth straight game.

Normally Hardaway's backup at point guard, Carter had been starting in place of shooting guard Eddie Jones, who is out with a dislocated shoulder. In this one, he slid back over to his natural position to fill in for Hardaway, who missed the game due to a death in the family.

"That was my job tonight, to help out the team," Carter said. "We got into them early and took them out of their game. Every time I get the chance to step up and start, I'm going to take full advantage of it."

Carter scored eight points in the third quarter, when Miami turned a three-point halftime lead into a 75-62 advantage.

House, a 2000 second-round pick who has not played much this season, received extended time due to Hardaway's absence and made the most of them, scoring 12 points in the third quarter.

"It feels good to come in and contribute to the team and help us get a win," House said. "I was taking what the defense was giving me. I was coming off screens and was able to get in the lane."

Carter made 7-of-14 shots and added seven assists. House was 7-of-13 with five assists. But overcame erratic play as they combined for nine of Miami's 17 turnovers.

"They turned the ball over too much but they are both pushing and penetrating and they each made enough good plays to overcome whatever bad plays they made," Heat coach Pat Riley said. "Eddie works hard and comes with a lot of energy and can be a fan favorite."

Anthony Mason had 18 points and 12 rebounds for the Heat, who have won six of their last seven home games.

"Through adversity comes opportunity," Mason said. "Some of our guys came off the bench and stepped up and did the job. The team played well, the guys coming off the bench are professionals. It's their job to come off the bench and step up. They did a good job tonight."

Shareef Abdur-Rahim scored 20 points for Vancouver, which fell to 0-5 on its eight-game road trip.

Carter scored eight points in the first four-plus minutes of the third quarter, helping Miami widen a three-point halftime lead to 59-51.

"I'm more focused in concentrating on knocking down my shot," Carter said. "I've been working on it in practice every day. I'm going to have to knock it down in the playoffs, so this is a good time to build confidence in the playoffs."

A 20-footer by Abdur-Rahim had Vancouver within 61-57 midway through the third quarter until House drilled a 3-pointer to trigger a 14-3 run. He added two jumpers around a 3-pointer before a basket by A.C. Green made it 75-60 with a minute to go.

"In the third quarter, when I started going to the hole, they started backing up and giving me the opportunities to shoot the ball," House said.

The Grizzlies got no closer than 10 points in the final period and the Heat led by as many as 18 points.

Brian Grant scored 12 points and Green added 10 for the Heat, who shot 50 percent (37-of-74) and held a 43-35 rebounding edge.

Michael Dickerson scored 16 points and Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf and Bryant Reeves added 12 apiece for the Grizzlies, who played for the fourth time in five nights and shot 42 percent (32-of-77).

"There are a lot of teams that have the same type of schedule that we have, so it's not an excuse," Dickerson said. "Everyone does it. We just have to make plays down the stretch. However, after four games in five nights, it's time for a break."

The Heat never trailed, scoring the first eight points as Bruce Bowen and Dan Majerle hit 3-pointers. They led 29-16 after one quarter but the Grizzlies rallied behind Reeves in the second period and pulled within 47-44 at halftime.
