Game Story

MIAMI (Ticker) -- In need of a spark, the Miami Heat got one from an unlikely source. LaPhonso Ellis keyed a pivotal first-half burst and Eddie Jones continued his strong play of late with 26 points as the Heat posted a 99-79 triumph over the Atlanta Hawks. Miami trailed, 22-13, in the final minute of the first quarter but Ellis had eight points in a 17-0 spurt. Ellis, who had just 20 points in his last four games combined, buried a pair of 3-pointers in the burst and finished with a season-high 15 points. Jones made 7-of-11 shots, including 5-of-8 from 3-point range, in his 600th game. He has at least 22 points in four of his last six games and helped the Heat beat the Hawks in Atlanta for the 19th time in 28 meetings. "Eddie had a huge game for us," Heat forward Brian Grant said. "LaPhonso had an awesome game." "Our perimeter players were doing it (tonight)," Miami rookie Caron Butler said. "Coach told us to get up and down the court and try to beat them. We were successful. We got a lot of good looks." Shareef Abdur-Rahim had 19 points and 10 rebounds for the Hawks, who had a three-game winning streak snapped. "I was disappointed we didn't play better," Hawks coach Terry Stotts said. "We got fatigued in the second half, and they just looked like they were more active and more alert. They had more energy. This is our fifth game in seven nights and that might have caught up with us. Turnovers in the first half were key." Atlanta raced to a 9-2 lead just under three minutes into the contest and was ahead 22-13 following a layup by Alan Henderson with 46 seconds left in the quarter. But Jones found Ellis for a 3-pointer 16 seconds later to ignite the key run. Jones hit two free throws with 13 seconds left and Miami trailed, 22-18, at the end of 12 minutes. Butler opened the second quarter with a short jumper and Mike James got the Heat within 22-21 with a free throw 48 seconds into the period. James found Ellis for a 3-pointer that gave Miami the lead and Ellis hit two free throws with 9:47 left in the half. James had a jumper 30 seconds later and capped the burst with a layup that put the Heat ahead, 30-22 with 8:29 to go. Atlanta took its last lead, 45-44, on a jumper by Theo Ratliff 90 seconds into the second half. But Jones sandwiched 3-pointers around a basket by the Hawks' Glenn Robinson and Miami's Travis Best sank a jumper for a 52-47 lead. Grant had a basket for a 54-47 advantage and Butler made it an eight-point lead with a free throw. Two free throws by Best with 6:39 left pushed the Heat's edge to 10 points. Miami led, 72-58, after 36 minutes and Atlanta never got closer than nine - and trailed by as many as 22 - in the final quarter. "We went out in the third quarter with our minds made up that we were going to defend, move the ball and make shots," Jones said. "It didn't come down to the last second because we did things defensively tonight. We limited their best players." "We came out in the third quarter more prepared," Heat coach Pat Riley said. "They played better and with more intensity. It's always easier when you are making shots." Miami got outrebounded 43-41 and shot just 43 percent (34-of-79) but committed only nine turnovers and forced 19. The Heat also made 22-of-28 free throws, attempting 18 more than the Hawks, who made eight.
