GAME RECAP

Alonzo Mourning scored 20 of his 26 points in the first half and grabbed 15 rebounds to lead the Miami Heat to their fifth straight victory, a 91-77 triumph over the Sacramento Kings.

Tim Hardaway added 21 points and P.J. Brown had his second double-double in as many nights with 16 points and 13 rebounds for the Heat, who won for just the third time in 11 all-time games in Sacramento. Miami has won nine of its last 10 overall.

"Our defense pretty much set the tone for the game," Mourning said. "Riley (Coach Pat Riley) told us that we're due for a roll, that we hadn't had one all year. We've definitely started one, now we've just gotta keep building on to get that top spot in the East."

Mitch Richmond, who Miami failed to acquire before Thursday's trading deadline, scored 22 points for the Kings, who had their four-game winning streak snapped. They still have not won five in a row since December 19th-28th, 1996 and have lost five straight to the Heat.

The Kings got off to a good start in the first quarter behind Richmond, who scored 10 points in the period. His jumper with 3:49 remaining in the period gave Sacramento a 19-16 lead, but Miami answered with a 12-2 run to close the quarter. Eric Murdock's layup with 5.8 seconds remaining in the period provided the Heat with a 28-21 advantage.

Sacramento closed within 32-29 on a pair of free throws by Mark Hendrickson with 6:42 remaining in the second quarter. But the Heat used a 13-2 burst to grab a 45-31 lead when Mourning converted a three-point play with 3:31 left in the half. Miami led 52-39 at the break.

"Zo (Mourning) was huge," Riley said. "He has had about five consecutive games where he's been very forceful. We're going to be going to him for a lot of looks and a lot of catches because he's very defined with his offense right now. He and P.J. were just hammering the offensive boards and getting putbacks."

The Kings hurt themselves with sloppiness in the first half. Otis Thorpe, who they re-acquired from Vancouver before the deadline, came on in the first period to a standing ovation but committed three quick turnovers. Sacramento turned it over 16 times in the first half, negating 56 percent shooting.

"Turnovers really cost us tonight, as well as second chances on the boards," Thorpe said. "It was nice to be out there but a different situation. I definitely felt lost out there on the offensive end. I just wanted to go out and get into the flow of things. As a team we didn't do so well. They took an early lead and maintained it throughout the game."

The Heat put the game out of reach with a 10-4 surge to open the third quarter. Hardaway's free throw gave them a 62-43 lead with 7:34 left in the period and they opened a 20-point bulge at 67-47 on Brown's five-footer with 6:42 to go in the period.

Sacramento was only able to get as close as 11 points on a pair of occasions but Dan Majerle kept Miami safely ahead both times. After the Kings got within 72-61, Majerle buried a three-pointer with 9:09 to go. Anthony Johnson drilled a three-pointer to slice the deficit to 75-64, but Majerle again hit from behind the arc to make it 78-64 with 8:01 to play.

Majerle and Voshon Lenard had eight points apiece for the Heat, who shot 40 percent (33-of-82) from the field and held a 46-34 rebounding advantage. Miami led by as much as 22 in the fourth quarter.

Tariq Abdul-Wahad finished with 12 points and Billy Owens 11 for the Kings, who shot 43 percent (28-of-65) and committed 25 turnovers. Thorpe finished with five points and four rebounds, while Lawrence Funderburke had six points in 13 minutes in his first game off the injured list.
