GAME RECAP

Tim Hardaway scored 11 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter and the Miami Heat held off a furious late rally by the Milwaukee Bucks to post a 87-84 victory, their seventh in nine games.

Milwaukee trailed 85-84 and had possession with under 10 seconds left. Ray Allen worked the ball toward the basket and passed to Glenn Robinson on the left baseline. The ball slipped through Robinson's hands and he knocked it out of bounds with his leg.

Miami's Voshon Lenard was fouled on the inbounds play and hit a pair of free throws with eight-tenths of a second left. The Bucks had one last chance to tie at the buzzer, but Elliot Perry's 30-footer fell short.

Hardaway finished with 11 assists, nine rebounds and four steals. Isaac Austin scored 22 points and Lenard added 21 for Miami, which improved to 10-2 when Hardaway hands out at least 10 assists.

"It was an absolute war. Both teams fought tooth and nail," said Miami coach Pat Riley. "There was aggressive defense on both ends. We missed a lot of free throws (14) but hung in there. We survived the last minute-and-a-half. You've got to survive on the road."

Robinson scored 28 points and Perry added 15 in his first start of the season at point guard. He was replacing Terrell Brandon, who sprained his left ankle in a loss to Cleveland on Thursday and was placed on the injured list.

Ervin Johnson had 13 rebounds and Allen nine assists for the Bucks, who dropped their third straight game.

"Tonight I pleaded with the players to play great defense, and they did. But the turnovers killed us," said Milwaukee coach Chris Ford. "We have to handle the ball first to get the shot up. We should've won these last three games. They're putting forth a great effort, but we can't keep turning the ball over. Perry did an outstanding job starting for us."

Holding a 69-68 lead early in the fourth quarter, Miami went on a 16-6 run in just over seven minutes to take an 85-74 lead with 3:31 left. Hardaway had the last six points of the burst on a shot off the glass, a drive in which he split two defenders in the lane and a jumper.

"We got some good looks and good shots tonight," said Hardaway. This would've been a demoralizing loss. I'm disturbed by my mistakes, but at least we won."

Facing their biggest deficit of the game, the Bucks responded with a 10-0 burst to pull within 85-84, with 53 seconds left following a steal and dunk by Robinson.

On Miami's next possession, Johnson picked off a pass near the sideline, but his momentum carried him out of bounds before he could call for a timeout and the Heat regained possession.

That led to a missed shot on the baseline by Hardaway, with Robinson grabbing the rebound. But his turnover at the other end of the floor halted Milwaukee's rally.

"As long as his teammates accept Glenn he'll be all right. And we do," said Allen. "It was a frustrating loss, but we're not going to lay down and give up on the season. Everybody on this team will not let the past happen again.

"Playing the point is tiresome, but I just need to focus. I'm not frustrated. We know we played hard tonight."
