GAME RECAP

Jamal Mashburn scored 25 points and Dan Majerle made a pair of key three-pointers in the final two minutes, leading the Miami Heat to a 91-87 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks, who had their season-high six-game winning streak snapped.

Tim Hardaway added 19 points and seven assists and P.J. Brown had 10 rebounds for the Heat, who have won three straight games and take a 3 1/2-game lead over New Jersey in the Atlantic Division into the All-Star break.

"We got very, very lucky at the end," Miami coach Pat Riley said. "It was a good defensive game for both teams. We did everything we could to contain Glenn Robinson and Ray Allen. We've been struggling lately and this was a great win for us over a team that is playing well right now."

Allen and Robinson scored 25 points apiece and Armon Gilliam added 20 and eight rebounds for Milwaukee, which has dropped 19 of its last 20 games against Miami, including 11 in a row at home. The Bucks' last win at home over the Heat came on December 2nd, 1992

"I thought we started the game soft," Milwaukee coach Chris Ford said. "We had our chances, and our looks, but they did not drop. Armon Gilliam came in and played well, but Miami came back and made the big shots.

"I'm happy with the way we are coming together. There are 35 games left in the season and hopefully we can keep it up after the All-Star break."

Down 73-62 heading into the fourth quarter, the Bucks went on a 16-6 run over the first six minutes of the period to pull within 79-78 on a free throw by Gilliam. The spurt was fueled by Gilliam's seven points and five from Allen.

A layup by Mashburn gave the Heat an 81-78 edge, but a jumper by Robinson and a short hook by Gilliam with 4:16 remaining gave Miwaukee an 82-81 lead. Hardaway answered for Miami with a jumper and Majerle followed with the first of his two big three-pointers, making it 86-82 Miami with 1:53 left.

Milwaukee cut the lead to one when Robinson connected on his only three-pointer of the game with 1:15 remaining. Forty seconds later the Bucks had a chance to take the lead, but Tyrone Hill missed a short jumper, and while chasing down the rebound, he collided with Robinson and the Bucks lost possession out of bounds.

Miami took advantage on its next possession when Majerle, with the 24-second clock winding down, drained another three-pointer, with 16.4 seconds left to make it 89-85.

"Mashburn penetrated and kicked it out to me," Majerle said. "I was in a rhythm, let it go, and luckily it went in. I've hit a lot of pressure shots like that in my career. We're coming out strong now where we struggled earlier in the year."

After Gilliam missed a hook shot in the lane, Hardaway converted two free throws to make it 91-85 with 5.8 seconds to go and Gilliam added a harmless dunk at the buzzer.

Milwaukee lost point guard Terrell Brandon to a sprained left ankle with 47 seconds left in the first quarter, but the Bucks, with Robinson scoring 14 points, pulled to within 48-41 at the half.

"It's positive that I'm walking and I'm encouraged by that," Brandon said. "The last time I hurt my ankle I couldn't walk for days. But it's a concern that the same ankle has been bothering me all year."
