Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- The Philadelphia 76ers' challenge to the Miami Heat's supremacy in the Atlantic Division was swatted away -- literally.

Alonzo Mourning totaled 23 points, 10 rebounds and five blocks, including a crucial one on Allen Iverson in the late stages, as the Heat showed their toughness in an 89-78 victory over the 76ers, who had a six-game winning streak snapped.

Tim Hardaway had 26 points and 10 assists for Miami, which has won 11 of its last 12 games and kept pace with the first-place Orlando Magic in the Atlantic Division.

"That's a heck of a stretch in any season," Hardaway said. "We just pride ourselves on defense and playing well on the offensive end. That's what we did tonight to win the ballgame. It's defense first, though, and getting out running and making easy plays."

Hardaway won his duel with Iverson, who had carried the Sixers into this contest with a 10-5 record, one game behind the two-time defending division champions. Iverson scored 34 points but shot just 11-of-29 from the field and was thwarted when it mattered most.

"I wanted to stick him and I know he wanted to stick me," said Hardaway. "That's how competitive we are. Both coaches said, `No' or we both would have fouled out. So we stuck each other a little bit.

"He's an exceptional player. he has a lot of quickness and he plays well. He does good things for his team."

Iverson did not agree with Hardaway.

"I didn't play well at all," he said. "I'm looking forward to getting down there (on Monday) and playing them again."

A 3-pointer and two free throws by Iverson pulled Philadelphia within 79-74 with 4:56 to go. He drove for a basket that would have cut the deficit to three, but Mourning -- playing with five fouls -- blocked the shot and converted a short hook on the other end for an 81-74 bulge with 3:52 left.

Mourning missed two free throws and Iverson's tip-in with 2:05 left cut the deficit to 83-76. That was the last basket for the Sixers, as the Heat made 6-of-8 free throws down the stretch for their eighth straight win in the series.

"Our defense has been the crutch," Mourning said. "We've been leaning on it quite a bit. When things go wrong for us, we look to play defense. You start with defense. It should be your game plan because the more stops you get, the more opportunities you have to play defense."

Miami trailed at halftime but limited Philadelphia to 36 points in the second half and 16 in the final period. The Heat cut off the transition game of the 76ers, who only stayed in the game by holding a 24-8 edge on the offensive glass.

Terry Porter scored 13 points and P.J. Brown added 10 for the Heat, who shot 49 percent (31-of-63) from the field and made 20-of-26 free throws.

George Lynch had 12 points and 11 rebounds for Philadelphia, which just shot 19 percent (5-of-26) in the fourth quarter and 33 percent (28-of-84) overall. The Sixers held a 45-37 edge on the glass.

Miami took the lead for good with a 7-0 surge to open the third quarter. A 3-pointer by former Sixer Rex Walters extended the advantage to 50-43 with 9:01 remaining.

"I'm disappointed," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. "I looked at the bench in the third quarter and we looked like we conceded because we were losing. We were down 56-52 but we had our tail between our legs."

"He went by the looks on people's faces," Iverson said. "The guys didn't look like they were in it. I don't think anybody gave up; that's what our coach was looking at. You can tell a lot by the look on someone's face."

Hardaway scored Miami's last five points of the period, which ended with the Heat holding a 66-62 lead. He stayed hot in the final quarter, making three 3-pointers as Miami extended the lead to 79-69 with 5:49 remaining.

"In the third quarter, we played like we were supposed to lose," Brown said. "I know Zo by his presence had a lot to do with that."

Three straight layups by Iverson and a free throw by Eric Snow expanded a 19-16 lead after one quarter to 26-18 10:01 left in the second period.

A driving dunk by Theo Ratliff gave Philadelphia a 40-34 lead with 2:31 left before a 3-pointer by Hardaway and three free throws by Mourning cut the halftime deficit to 41-40.
