GAME RECAP

Alonzo Mourning scored 34 points, including 11 in the decisive third quarter, as the Miami Heat notched their fifth straight victory with a 102-77 triumph over the injury-depleted Milwaukee Bucks.

Mourning, who scored 20 in the first half as the Heat built a 45-41 edge, took part in a pair of crucial third-quarter runs that netted the Heat their seventh win in eight games. He contributed seven points as Miami scored 12 of the first 16 points of the quarter, then three more later in an 8-0 burst that extended the advantage to double-digits for good.

Mourning made 13-of-18 shots from the field and 8-of-11 from the line along with a team-high 11 rebounds as the Heat reduced their magic number to two for clinching the Atlantic Division.

"We made a lot of mistakes and kept them in the game," observed Mourning. "At halftime, (coach Pat) Riley let us have it. We went out and gave a better effort."

Milwaukee was playing without three of its best players, starters Glenn Robinson, Terrell Brandon and Tyrone Hill. Armon Gilliam totaled 14 points and Andrew Lang had 11 and 13 rebounds, but the two were unable to stave off the Bucks' ninth straight road loss and their 12th in 14th games overall.

Reserve Marty Conlon scored 11 points and grabbed six rebounds and Tim Hardaway added 11 points, 10 assists and five rebounds for Miami, which shot 46 percent (34-of-74) from the field and had 28 assists to the Bucks' 11.

Jerald Honeycutt had 10 points off the bench but Ray Allen was held to only seven points on 3-of-14 shooting as Milwaukee's starters were outscored, 69-40.

"We have to make due with the guys who are suiting up right now," Allen said. "We've taken a blow several times when guys have been out. We have to expect more from our bench.

"When I don't do well, I feel I've let down the team," Allen admitted. "We have to play damn-near perfect to win these games."

The Bucks shooting was abysmal from the floor, as they hit just 2-of-11 three-pointers en route to a 31-percent (25-of-81) performance overall.

The Heat expanded their halftime edge with a 12-4 run and took a 57-45 advantage on Mourning's three-point play. Allen hit a free throw and a jumper around baskets by Elliot Perry and Ervin Johnson as the Bucks countered with an 8-0 spurt, but Miami soon answered, taking a 69-54 lead on two free throws by Dan Majerle with 2:27 to go.

Majerle finished with nine points, 10 rebounds and six assists as Miami carved out a 55-45 edge on the backboards in remaining four games behind Chicago for the best record in the Eastern Conference.

"The guys that come in (for Milwaukee) want to prove themselves and do well," said Majerle. "We were playing pretty well tonight, running down ther floor and getting it to 'Zo."

The Heat, who clinched their second straight 50-win season, led by as many as 30 points when Duane Causwell's jumper with 1:38 left to play made it 102-72.
