Game Story

INDIANAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Miami Heat trainer Ron Culp was the only person at Conseco Fieldhouse able to cool off Alonzo Mourning.

The Heat ended the Indiana Pacers' 25-game home winning streak with a 105-96 victory as Mourning scored 23 of his 35 points in the second and third quarters.

Not even a troublesome right shoulder could slow Mourning, who received treatment from Culp that included applications of ointment and ice.

"It hurts, it feels like a deep bruise," Mourning said. "We'll get it looked at tomorrow a little bit more. It's just bothering me. It's all a part of the game. Hey, you get your bumps and bruised throughout the course of the year."

Miami improved to 7-0 this season when Mourning scores at least 30 points and handed the Pacers their first home loss since November 25 against Detroit.

"Nah, nothing to do with it at all," he said of Indiana's winning streak at Conseco Fieldhouse. "We just needed a win on the road."

"Ultimately, it's not that important," agreed Pacers forward Austin Croshere. "I think the important thing is that we lost to a team that we had a chance to distance ourselves from in the playoff race. It's a little bit disappointing we didn't come out with a better effort throughout the entire course of the game."

Mourning's dunk midway through the second quarter put the Heat ahead for good, 36-35, and his 17-foot jumper sparked a 17-7 burst that extended the lead to 78-61 with 3:36 left in the third period.

Mourning made 13-of-18 shots from the field and was 9-of-14 from the line, continuing his impressive play against Indiana. He is averaging 31 points and 14 rebounds in three meetings with the Pacers this season.

"This is a good team, it was a test for us," Mourning said. "We're still behind in the East, they still have the top spot and we're working to try to get the top seed. For right now, we can enjoy this win. Tomorrow, we have to get ready for Milwaukee (on Tuesday)."

Croshere almost singlehandedly tried to rally Indiana, scoring 14 of his 19 points in the first 5:39 of the fourth quarter. He made a pair of layups before a thunderous dunk that was part of a three-point play. The 6-9 Croshere nailed a 3-pointer from the right side, a jumper and another dunk before Indiana got within 91-87 on a jumper by Jalen Rose with 4:40 to play.

"Coach got on us at halftime that we weren't getting the ball in the paint enough, so I tried to make a conscious effort to get some points around the basket, some easy buckets," Croshere said.

But Mourning answered with a short fallaway jumper and Dan Majerle followed in a miss by Tim Hardaway to give Miami an eight-point cushion.

Hardaway had 22 points and 12 assists and Jamal Mashburn scored 21 points to help the Heat snap a three-game road losing streak and move within 3 1/2 games of Indiana for the Eastern Conference lead.

"We saw the old Tim Hardaway today," Miami forward P.J. Brown said. "It was good to see him show us how good he still is. In my opinion, he is the key to our team. He really had it going today."

Reggie Miller led the Pacers with 26 points and Rose added 21.

"I think it was a big game," said Indiana coach Larry Bird. "We've been getting by at home and after a big win on Friday we thought everything was all right. I sort of figured this would happen sometime at home."

Miller scored the final six points of the first quarter to give the Pacers a 28-25 lead and hit two free throws to extend it to 33-25 two minutes into the second period.

But Clarence Weatherspoon had six of his eight points during a 17-4 burst that gave Miami the lead for good. The Heat shot nearly 65 percent (11-of-17) in the second quarter and settled for a 53-49 halftime lead.

Brown contributed 12 rebounds, helping Miami to a 38-32 edge on the glass, including 9-3 on the offensive boards. The Heat shot 50 percent (39-of-78) and committed only 10 turnovers.

"Today we played the best game we have all season," Miami coach Pat Riley said. "This was a big game for us, and will hopefully propel us into bigger and better things. If we would have lost today, there would have been no chance at catching them."

Mark Jackson chipped in 11 points and seven assists and Rik Smits scored 10 points for Indiana, which connected on 49 percent of its shots (37-of-75) but was only 14-of-32 in the pivotal second and third quarters.
