Game Story

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Ticker) -- Tim Hardaway has delivered the dagger many times before, but perhaps never this early.

Hardaway scored 13 of his 15 points in the decisive first quarter as the Miami Heat officially eliminated the New Jersey Nets from the playoff race with their sixth straight win, 103-85.

Throughout his 10-year career, Hardaway repeatedly has made the clinching shot at crucial times late in the game. Tonight, with counterpart Stephon Marbury on the sidelines, he took care of matters much earlier.

The 6-foot guard came out firing, making a pair of long jumpers in the first minute. His two free throws gave Miami an 18-15 lead with 4:25 remaining and, after the Nets tied it, Hardaway drilled consecutive 3-pointers in a 15-1 burst that closed the quarter and gave Miami control for good.

Jamal Mashburn scored 21 points and Alonzo Mourning and Clarence Weatherspoon added 15 apiece for the Heat (49-26), who have won 12 of their last 15 games to remain atop the Atlantic Division.

Marbury, who leads the Nets in scoring and assists, is out with knee tendinitis. Elliot Perry received the bulk of his minutes at point guard and scored a season-high 18 points for the Nets (31-45), who will miss the postseason for the fifth time in six years.
