Game Story

NEW ORLEANS (Ticker) -- Jamal Mashburn and the New Orleans Hornets continue to roll. Mashburn collected 18 points, 13 rebounds and 13 assists for his second career triple-double as the New Orleans Hornets beat the Miami Heat, 91-82, for their first four-game winning streak in more than two months. "I just can't say enough good things about him," Hornets coach Paul Silas said. "He's carrying us now. He's just on a roll. Point-wise, defense, rebounding, whatever is needed, he is providing for us. I have not seen him play better." "I know how important this time of year is, so I've tried to raise my level of play," said Mashburn, whose team is sixth in the Eastern Conference playoff race. P.J. Brown added 16 points and Jamaal Magloire 14 and 14 rebounds for the Hornets, who last won four in a row from December 3-7. Mashburn, who had averaged 29.4 points over his previous five contests, recorded the team's first triple-double since Baron Davis had one against Golden State on January 3, 2002. He got there with an assist on a jumper by Kenny Anderson with 43 seconds left in the third quarter. "I've always taken pride in passing and assists," said Mashburn, a former Heat. "I think people fail to look at that part of my game because I score a lot of points at times. I make sure everybody is involved. I'm not going to do it all by myself. I make sure everybody is getting their shots." The Hornets took the lead for good, 53-51, on a jumper by David Wesley with 7:07 left in the third quarter, and extended their advantage to 82-71 on a pair of free throws by Wesley with 5:02 to play in the contest. "They just got on a run and it got away from us," Heat forward Brian Grant said. "We had a couple of chances, a couple of good looks, a couple of good drives. We missed three straight times down the floor and they came down and scored three straight times and opened up a lead and we never recovered from it." The Heat scored the next seven points before George Lynch nailed a 3-pointer and Wesley made a high-arcing layup over 7-footer Vladimir Stepania that gave the Hornets a 87-78 lead with 2:24 to go. "The third quarter sort of did us in," Heat coach Pat Riley said. "We made a little bit of a comeback (in the fourth quarter), but then Lynch made a big shot and really broke our back." "Coach Riley really believes in his defense," Brown said. "They grab and hold and play tough. They just play solid, execution-type basketball and it's hard to get a good rhythm going." Grant scored a season-high 24 points and pulled down 15 rebounds and Travis Best added 17 points for Miami, which is 0-3 against New Orleans and has lost six straight in the series. "I haven't been that aggressive all year," Grant said. "Coach challenged us to be more aggressive." "Brian played great tonight, absolutely great," Riley said. "He led us in a lot of ways. He plays with a lot of focus as an offensive player. He was really good tonight." Eddie Jones chipped 14 points and Stepania had 12 for the Heat, who were missing star rookie Caron Butler for the second straight game due to a severe case of the flu. "We all had great looks at the rim, we just couldn't get it done," Jones said. "We could have played better defensively." The Heat shot just 39 percent (31-of-79) from the field in their fifth consecutive road loss. "The guys were playing hard," Riley said. "You could just see it on their face. They were just trying to grind through it. (But) I'm not going to use that as an excuse. We had our opportunities, we just didn't take advantage of the opportunities we had." The Hornets won their fourth straight home game to improve to 22-9 at New Orleans Arena. "I'm very pleased with where we are now, but let's not forget that we still don't have Baron (Davis), who is one of our best players," Silas said of his injured starting point guard. "When we get him back ... I think we can really make a splurge. As of right now, we're holding our own. We're playing excellent basketball, but we're not all there yet. Give us a little time."
