Game Story

MIAMI (Ticker) -- Twice, Keith Van Horn had the win in his hands. Twice, he let it slip away. Van Horn committed a crucial turnover at the end of the first overtime and missed a potential winning 3-pointer at the end of the second overtime, allowing the Miami Heat to escape with a 112-110 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks, who had a three-game winning streak snapped. "We gave ourselves a great chance to win," Bucks coach Terry Porter said. "A couple of mistakes down the stretch really hurt us." Van Horn had 26 points, 15 rebounds, two blocks and two steals. He scored eight points in the first overtime, when Milwaukee opened a 105-101 lead on an 18-footer by Michael Redd with 11 seconds to go. But Miami's Eddie Jones made a running banker with seven seconds to go and Van Horn fumbled away an inbounds pass from Joe Smith with 5.7 seconds left, giving the Heat a chance to tie. "I think he just dropped it," Porter said. "My mind-set while catching the ball was simply to protect myself because I knew they would try and reach in and steal the ball," Van Horn said. "I don't know if I got bumped or not, but regardless, I should have caught it." The Bucks did not apply pressure in the backcourt, and Keyon Dooling sprinted the length of the court and threw in a layup with 1.4 seconds remaining to force another overtime. "It felt great," Dooling said. "The building went crazy. That's my best moment in basketball so far." Porter wasn't happy Dooling had an open court. "He went by a guy, and laid it in," Porter said. "We've got to do a better job of keeping guys in front in that scenario and not allowing a guy to get to the basket. He made a play, he made a shot." Despite losing superstar center Shaquille O'Neal to fouls, Miami scored the first seven points of the second overtime period, opening a 112-105 lead at the 2:30 mark on a 3-pointer by Rasual Butler, who scored 17 points. Van Horn dunked off a feed from Redd, whose 3-pointer made it a two-point game with 47 seconds to play. The Bucks had a chance to tie or win, but Van Horn launched an airball from the top of the arc with one second left. "We should have called a timeout," Van Horn said. "I think our mind-set was that we didn't have any, when actually we did. So we need to recognize those things and not have those breakdowns." O'Neal had 19 points and 18 rebounds and Jones scored 19 points for the Heat, who snapped a two-game slide as they improved to 4-0 all-time in overtime against the Bucks. "I thought it was nice to cruise through an easy one like that," joked Miami coach Stan Van Gundy joked. "That was one of the craziest basketball games I've ever been a part of. To be down four with 11.1 seconds remaining and do what we did ... Eddie made the great move to cut it to two, and then we got a little bit lucky on the turnover." Redd scored 21 points and Maurice Williams added 18 and 10 assists for Milwaukee, which had won five of its last six meetings with Miami. The Bucks (3-2) have split four games decided by three points or less. "Coach talked about mental mistakes and mental breakdowns," said Milwaukee's Desmond Mason, who scored 17 points. "You've got to learn from them and move on.'' "It's a tough loss to take," Van Horn said. Had Miami lost, it could have felt the same way, especially with O'Neal missing 12 of 17 free throws and being subjected to some "Hack-a-Shaq" by Porter. "I didn't shoot well from the line tonight, but the other guys stuck up for me," O'Neal said. "They just need to know that when they really need me, I will be there. I was not there tonight, but when they need me in the future, I will be there for them." The game featured 15 ties and 19 lead changes. A layup by Butler gave the Heat a 91-87 lead with 1:48 left in regulation, but two free throws by Mason and a bucket by Smith tied it. Butler sank a corner jumper with 45 seconds to go, but Williams forced overtime with a jumper 20 seconds later before Jones missed before the buzzer. "I felt like we gave that game away," Williams said. "It was there to be won. It's a tough pill to swallow."
