Game Story

TORONTO (Ticker) -- The Toronto Raptors' franchise-record six-game winning streak came to an end as Jamal Mashburn scored seven of his 10 points during a 25-8 third-quarter run that propelled the Miami Heat to a 92-70 victory.

Despite a horrendous shooting performance, the Raptors were within 41-37 with 10:10 left in the third quarter after Kevin Willis' eight-foot hook from the left sideline. Toronto connected on just 30 percent (24-of-81) from the field, including 3-of-12 from beyond the arc.

Mashburn began the decisive spurt with a driving layup and the Heat were up 66-45 after P.J. Brown connected on a short jumper with 1:10 remaining in the period. The Raptors came no closer than 16 points thereafter.

"Once we got our rebounding under control, we were OK," Heat coach Pat Riley said. "Toronto only got 15 points in the first half from a set offense. We did a good job on their posts. They didn't shoot well from the perimeter when they needed to."

Toronto also had its nine-game home winning streak snapped and fell for just the third time in 14 games at the Air Canada Centre and for only the third time in 15 games overall.

"We just didn't make the adjustments to be physical with them," Raptors coach Butch Carter said. "It was like a playoff game from the standpoint that Miami was in a playoff mentality. The officials were in a playoff mentality, but we weren't."

Alonzo Mourning collected 20 points and 13 rebounds and Brown contributed 16 and 10 for Miami, which has won seven straight against Toronto and leads the all-time series, 12-2.

"We needed to establish ourselves early and we did that," said Mourning of Miami's 23-14 lead after one quarter. "We had to utilize our defense to the best of our ability. I just tried to concentrate on rebounding. If the scoring comes, that's fine. If we get that effort every night I'm pleased. We broke their defense down."

The Heat have won two straight following a four-game losing skid.

Tracy McGrady and John Wallace scored 12 points apiece to lead the Raptors. Rookie Vince Carter was held to 10 points, nearly eight below his average, but did grab nine rebounds.

After Mashburn's layup, Brown scored on a tip-in. Willis responded with a running jumper, Mashburn pushed the lead back to eight points and Brown followed with a layup.

"I've got to get used to the contact," said Mashburn, who was playing just his third game in a return from leg injuries. "I've got to get my bumps on the road. As long as I don't get down on myself, I'll be fine. I have to get used to the game again. I'm looking forward to getting back to the way I can play."

Seemingly Toronto's only offense during the quarter, Willis scored on a 16-footer from the left sideline, only to watch as the Heat exploded for the next nine points. Brown made a jumper, Mourning connected on a pair of free throws, and Dan Majerle drilled a 3-pointer.

"It's who starts the first and third quarter (better) that wins," Butch Carter said. "It's just a lesson we have to learn."

Mashburn's layup was answered by Tracy McGrady's layup, but Majerle drained another 3-pointer, pushing Miami's advantage to 61-43 with 3:13 left in the quarter. A 3-pointer play by Mourning 40 seconds later helped the Heat build a 66-45 margin entering the final period.

"We were a little too comfortable with the way we were playing," said Vince Carter. "This was our wakeup call. They are a big team, but there are no excuses."

Miami's biggest lead of the game was 88-61 after Mark Strickland threw down a dunk with 2 1/2 minutes to play.

Majerle contributed 11 points and Tim Hardaway dished out five assists for Miami, which shot 46 percent (37-of-81) and held a 53-47 advantage on the boards.

"Alonzo's impact on a game for us is huge," added Riley. "Vince Carter and Doug Christie are blow-by post-up guys, but our help was good. Toronto has been playing extremely well. We have great respect for what they've been doing."
