Game Story

MIAMI (Ticker) -- Dan Majerle followed a miss by Tim Hardaway with 1.1 seconds to play, giving the Miami Heat their second victory over the Philadelphia 76ers in four days, 91-89.

Terry Porter scored 12 of his 20 points in the fourth quarter, helping the Heat bounce back from Sunday's loss to Indiana and post their ninth straight win over the 76ers. Porter scored nine points in the final period of Friday's 89-78 victory in Philadelphia.

With the game tied, 89-89, Allen Iverson drove to the lane past Hardaway but had his shot partially blocked by Alonzo Mourning, who scored 15 points. The shot clock expired as the teams battled for the rebound, giving Miami possession with 6.6 seconds remaining.

Hardaway fired a high arching jumper from the left baseline and the ball bounced off the rim and to the middle of the lane. Majerle was there waiting, grabbing the rebound and quickly throwing it back into the basket.

"I knew Tim was going to take the shot with six seconds left," Majerle said. "Tim popped open, I saw him take it baseline, so I went to the basket, and the ball bounced right towards me."

"We didn't put a body on Majerle," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. "We defended the play great. We made Tim take a hard shot, but we didn't come up with the rebound."

Majerle then partially deflected Aaron McKie's errant inbounds pass at the other end, sealing Miami's 12th win in 14 games.

Majerle scored only four points on 2-of-8 shooting, but contributed eight boards and eight assists.

Hardaway again won a duel with Iverson, despite getting outscored by his fellow star guard. Both shot poorly and committed six turnovers, with Hardaway totaling 12 points and 10 assists and Iverson collecting 28 points, six boards and five assists.

"They were out for revenge from Friday, and it challenged me," Hardaway said. "I don't want them to think they can beat us. I don't want them to blame turnovers. I don't want them to blame bad shots. I wanted to show them it was us who beat them after all."

Philadelphia has dropped three straight since a six-game winning streak.

"It's part of the growing pains of a young team. We didn't execute at the end," Iverson said. "We didn't do the same things in the fourth quarter that we had the whole game, and it showed. We just had a terrible fourth quarter."

The 76ers owned a 72-66 lead heading into the fourth but managed only two points over the first four-plus minutes of the period as the Heat got back in it. A 3-pointer and driving layup by Porter pulled Miami within 74-73.

"Our defense was the cornerstone in the fourth quarter," Porter said. "They came in with some revenge in their minds and we stole it from them."

The game remained tight until Snow buried a jumper and Iverson sank two free throws to make it 85-80 with 4:08 to play. The Heat answered with six straight points to retake the lead as P.J. Brown hit a pair of foul shots and Hardaway fed Porter for a lay-in before sinking two free throws with 1:44 remaining.

Theo Ratliff ended the Sixers' brief drought with two foul shots, but Porter drained the last of his three 3-pointers to give Miami an 89-87 advantage. Snow then came through with another big jumper, tying the game with 55 seconds left.

Brown had 13 points, 11 rebounds and five blocks as the Heat moved within one-half game of the Orlando Magic for first place in the Atlantic Division.

Snow scored 14 points on 7-of-10 shooting and handed out seven assists for the 76ers, who scored just 17 points and committed nine turnovers in the final period. In Friday's defeat, they were held to 16 points on 5-of-26 shooting in the fourth.

"We just don't know how to win," Snow said. "We lost it when we had the lead. The same way you play at the end is the same way you play when you have the lead. You can't get passive and let up."

After trailing by a 49-48 margin at halftime, Iverson buried a 3-pointer and 20-footer to highlight a 9-0 spurt early in the third that gave Philadelphia a 59-51 lead.

Rookie Larry Hughes contributed 11 points and eight boards for the Sixers, who shot 41 percent (31-of-76) and committed 20 turnovers.

"With all the bad offense we had, all we had to do was stop them a couple of times," Brown said. "We had nine turnovers in the fourth quarter. How are you going to win when you do something like that?"
