Game Story

PORTLAND, Oregon (Ticker) -- The Portland Trail Blazers fell in love with the 3-pointer and it ended up breaking their hearts.

The Trail Blazers forced overtime with a barrage of 3-pointers but missed all seven shots from the arc in the extra session and suffered a 92-90 loss to the Miami Heat, who got a game-saving defensive play from Alonzo Mourning.

Riding a season-high four-game winning streak, Portland blew a 13-point lead and trailed, 78-70, after Miami's Eddie Jones made a 3-pointer with 4:07 remaining in the fourth quarter. Derek Anderson answered with a 3-pointer to start the rally.

Damon Stoudamire made a layup to cut the deficit to 78-75 with three minutes to go. Miami's Jimmy Jackson made a 3-pointer, but Stoudamire, Bonzi Wells and Anderson all connected from the arc, giving the Blazers an 84-81 lead with 1:07 left.

Mourning made two free throws and Rasheed Wallace and Stoudamire missed 3-pointers before Wallace tipped in Scottie Pippen's miss with 6.5 seconds to play. However, Jones banked in a 27-footer to tie it with 4.1 seconds left and Wallace's 3-pointer rattled in and out. That was a sign of things to come.

"They hit four or five threes," Miami coach Pat Riley said. "They hit all kinds of threes and twos, long shots to get it even again. Then Eddie banked one to get us into OT and that's what it's all about."

"There were six seconds left," Jones said. "I just wanted to get a shot up. I didn't call bank. I thought it was all net."

Portland never led in the extra session, repeatedly firing away from the arc. It had a chance to tie in the final minute, but Mourning swooped in from the weak side to block Stoudamire's layup with 37 seconds left.

"I know how Damon tries to fire the holes and uses the pick to create air space to get his shot off, or he goes to the lane and tries to shoot that floater," Mourning said. "I knew we were down by two and I didn't want him to get away with an easy one."

"Three or four weeks ago, he wouldn't have made that play," Heat swingman Kendall Gill said. "He's not getting tired like he used to. He's starting to look like the old Zo."

Portland had one more possession, but Anderson and Wallace again missed from long range. The Blazers were 6-of-24 from the arc.

"We kind of fell in love with that the whole game," Stoudamire said. "I can't tell you why we shot it more than usual."

"Three-point shots got us back into the game, but we got a little trigger-happy in the overtime," Blazers coach Maurice Cheeks said. "We have some players who think they can win the game like that. I'm not going to fault them in that area."

Jones scored 25 points and Mourning added 19, 12 rebounds and two blocks for the Heat, who went 3-1 on their West Coast road trip and are 6-3 since an embarrassing 5-23 start.

"I'm not really going to look ahead right now because we have so much work to do and we're still in the hole right now," Mourning said. "We're in a deep hole."

Anderson scored 19 points and Wallace added 17 and 12 rebounds for the Blazers (19-20), who failed in a bid to move above .500 for the first time since they were 12-11 on December 18.

After scoring a season-high 39 points in the first quarter of Wednesday's win over the Los Angeles Lakers, the Heat managed just 13 in the opening period against Portland. Shawn Kemp's jumper with 8 1/2 minutes to go in the second period gave the Blazers their largest lead at 30-17.

Portland led 47-37 at halftime and 66-58 in the opening minute of the fourth quarter before Jackson, a former Blazer, had a three-point play and 3-pointer in a 13-0 surge that gave Miami a 71-66 lead with 6:19 remaining.

Jackson and Kendall Gill scored 13 points apiece and former Blazer Rod Strickland handed out 11 assists for the Heat, who shot 43 percent (35-of-82), including 5-of-13 from the arc. Miami has won four of its last five visits to the Rose Garden.

Stoudamire and Kemp each scored 12 points and Wells had 12 and 10 rebounds for the Blazers, who shot just 35.5 percent (33-of-93) and held a 54-49 edge on the glass.
