Game Story

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- Tim Hardaway's 3-pointer with 3:44 left snapped a tie and lifted the Miami Heat to a 94-88 overtime victory over the Los Angeles Clippers.

Hardaway's third 3-pointer of the game broke an 86-86 deadlock and put the Heat up for good. He hit two free throws with 10.6 seconds to play to seal the win for Miami, which blew another late lead.

"It was an important victory for us," Hardaway said. "It was important for us to be over .500. In overtime, I made a three and that helped give us some room and ultimately win the game."

Hardaway finished with 21 points on 5-for-15 shooting, topping the 20-point mark for the fifth time this season, although this was Miami's first win in those contests.

The Heat led by 11 points entering the fourth quarter and by four in the final seconds of regulation but found themselves in their second overtime game of the season.

"We had an 11-point lead in the third quarter and couldn't sustain it," said Miami coach Pat Riley, whose team is 6-4 against Western Conference foes. "They were able to get back into the game by beating us in transistion, but we weathered the storm for a win."

The Clippers fell to 0-4 in overtime.

"The most important thing is we continue to play hard," Los Angeles coach Alvin Gentry said. "And we understand at some point we'll be able to win these games. And we'll know how to play in these games. It's just the maturation process that's going to take time."

Eddie Jones scored five of his 22 points in overtime, including the first of three straight 3-pointers.

"We knew that the Clippers were better than their record, so we wanted to play hard and get a win," Jones said. "But you have to give them credit because they came out and played us hard."

Two free throws by Anthony Mason gave Miami an 82-78 lead with 18 seconds left in the fourth quarter, but rookie Keyon Dooling made a basket and, after Anthony Carter split a pair of foul shots for the Heat, Lamar Odom drilled a 3-pointer from the top of the key with Mason in his face, tying it with 3.4 seconds to go.

"I was just trying to send the game into overtime," Odom said. "I was just trying to make something happen. I got a good look, was able to step back, clear some space and just shot the ball. But we didn't hit any shots in overtime, we just didn't hit any shots."

"This is big because it's another close game, which we've been having trouble with lately," said Mason. "Two close games in a row, all teams make runs and they have talent. (But) we made some big stops defensively."

Carter's 35-footer at the fourth-quarter buzzer hit the back rim.

Mason scored a season-high 24 points and grabbed 16 rebounds for Miami, which climbed above .500 for the first time since November 14.

Odom had 18 points and 10 rebounds and Corey Maggette scored 14 points off the bench for Los Angeles, which has lost the last eight meetings with Miami. The Clippers' bench outscored Miami's reserves, 48-7.

Los Angeles trailed 68-57 entering the fourth quarter but held the Heat to one basket over the first six minutes and took a 71-70 lead on Dooling's shot off the glass with 6 1/2 minutes left.

Dooling scored nine of his 13 points in the fourth quarter and overtime, including a 3-pointer that was the Clippers' only field goal in the extra period.

"We always put ourselves in a position to try and do something in the fourth quarter," said Dooling. "We played with a lot of energy, came back and forced overtime."

"Pat Riley's been winning for years. It's a tradition we're trying to start," Odom added.
