Game Story

MIAMI (Ticker) -- It was overtime, which meant it was over for the Los Angeles Clippers.

The Clippers fell to a league-worst 0-7 in overtime as Anthony Mason's spinning, driving shot with six-tenths of a second left gave the Miami Heat a 101-99 victory.

Los Angeles led by 17 points in the first half, 12 to start the fourth quarter and five early in the extra session. It still found a way to lose in overtime to the Heat for the second time this season.

"As it came down the wire, you had a bunch of veteran guys against a bunch of young guys, and without saying too much, that's how it goes," Clippers center Cherokee Parks said.

"Before it's over we will find a way to win some games," said Clippers coach Alvin Gentry.

Lamar Odom's two free throws pulled the Clippers into a 99-99 tie with 6.6 seconds to go. After a timeout, the Heat inbounded to Tim Hardaway, who passed to Mason at the left elbow. The All-Star dribbled into the lane, then spun left away from Parks and threw in a little lefthanded shot.

"We set up a play for Tim to get it and for me to pick-and-roll or duck in, but they went to trap him," Mason said. "He threw me the ball and said, `Go, go.'"

"They were going to let him go to the hole quicker than they were going to let me go to the hole," Hardaway said. "Mason made a good play. I gave the ball to our All-Star for an All-Star play."

Odom thought Mason created his own hole.

"Mason is so strong and so wide that when he made his spin move, he was able to clear Cherokee out," Odom said. "He has the strength of a center."

With no timeouts, Los Angeles threw a court-length pass to Eric Piatkowski, who missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer.

Eddie Jones scored 22 points and Mason, coming off his first All-Star appearance, added 21 and 10 for the Heat (31-20), who have scored at least 100 points in six of their last 10 games and climbed 11 games above .500 for the first time this season.

"We obviously had to dig like crazy just to win the game," Heat coach Pat Riley said. "I thought the Clippers were far superior in any category in the first half right through the third quarter."

Odom scored 19 points for the Clippers, who have lost seven of their last eight on the road. Los Angeles suffered a 94-88 home overtime loss to Miami on December 13.

"I was in the shower still thinking we won the game," Odom said. "I'm just happy to see a difference in my team. We can compete with any team in the NBA on any given night. To play the way we did tonight is big for our confidence."

The Clippers held a 72-60 lead entering the fourth quarter but the Heat opened the period with a 15-3 run. Mason's free throw tied it at 75-75 with 7:41 left and it was close thereafter.

"We knew they were going to make a run at us but we just couldn't convert a few baskets to keep the run from happening," Gentry said. "That's what happens with a young team."

A 3-pointer by Hardaway, who scored 20 points, gave Miami its first lead at 89-86 with 1:40 left. Odom scored at the other end and Jeff McInnis, who returned after bruising his knee, gave Los Angeles a 90-89 lead with a runner with 49 seconds to play.

Jones and Parks traded misses before Hardaway was fouled on a drive with 0.9 seconds remaining. He made the first but missed the second and Odom fired an airball at the horn.

McInnis scored the first five points of overtime but Mason hit two free throws and Jones drilled a 3-pointer to tie it at 95-95 with 2:15 to play. Odom tied it twice for Los Angeles before Mason won it.

"We just kept fighting, digging and getting back into it," Riley said. "We kept making shot when we needed to."

Brian Grant scored 17 points and Bruce Bowen added 13 for the Heat, who shot 45 percent (36-of-80) from the field, including 10-of-19 from 3-point range.

McInnis scored 17 points for the Clippers, who shot 49 percent (38-of-77), held a 39-34 rebounding edge and had five players in double figures.

Grant scored 13 points in the first quarter to keep Miami within striking distance as it fell behind, 24-19. A 3-pointer by Odom in the final minute of the first half gave Los Angeles a 51-34 advantage.
