Game Story

MIAMI (Ticker) -- The Miami Heat do not reach 100 points often but are nearly unbeatable when they do.

Eddie Jones scored nine of his 24 points in the fourth quarter as the Heat dominated the final period and posted their best offensive output of the season in a 112-95 victory over the Orlando Magic.

The Heat have reached the century mark only 21 times since the start of last season but have won 19 of those contests, including all four this season. On Wednesday, they posted their highest point total since recording 114 points in a victory over Sacramento on March 14, 2001.

Miami shot 55 percent (48-of-87) and made 7-of-15 3-pointers, doing most of its damage in the fourth quarter. The Heat made 14-of-21 shots in the final 12 minutes, including 3-of-4 from beyond the arc.

"We shot the ball extremely well, I thought we played well offensively," Miami coach Pat Riley said. "We did not give them a lot of things they like to get and we shot well in the fourth quarter."

The Heat led by as many as 15 in the third quarter and had an 80-72 edge entering the fourth. Troy Hudson opened the final period with a layup and Monty Williams followed with a pair of free throws to bring the Magic within 80-76, but Jones and Jimmy Jackson nailed consecutive 3-pointers to extend the lead.

"The back-to-back 3-pointers were the turning point, we couldn't come back from that," Orlando coach Doc Rivers said. "Tonight the Heat shot well. They made a lot of shots, I give them a lot of credit because they played really well."

Orlando never got closer than eight thereafter and Miami had its largest lead at 112-93 after a 3-pointer by Eddie House with 32 seconds remaining.

Alonzo Mourning scored 18 points and House collected 11 of his 13 in the final seven minutes as the Heat won for the fourth time in five games.

House led a strong effort by Miami's bench, which outscored its counterparts, 35-18.

"Everyone contributed, our bench played extremely well," Mourning said. "Every time we go to the bench, if we can get that kind of effort, we're going to be a team to reckon with. We set the tone as starters and then go to our bench and get the same results. That's going to be fantastic coming down the stretch."

Brian Grant scored 15 points and and Rod Strickland added 14 and six assists for the Heat, who scored 46 points in the paint. Mourning and Jones each grabbed eight rebounds as Miami held an overwhelming, 45-26 rebounding advantage.

"We definitely focused on getting boards," Grant said. "We focused in on closing down the defensive boards, getting long rebounds. Our guards did a good job of peeling back and getting long rebounds."

Tracy McGrady scored 20 of his 26 points after halftime and Pat Garrity added 25 points for the Magic, who had a three-game winning streak snapped.

Mike Miller was the only other player in double figures for Orlando, which made 9-of-16 3-pointers but sank only 14-of-23 free throws.

Miami used a 15-6 run bridging the first two quarters to take a 42-32 lead with 7:17 left in the first half. Mourning scored 14 points in the opening 24 minutes as the Heat took a 56-43 halftime lead.

Mourning nailed a jumper to give Miami a 62-47 cushion just 2:23 into the third quarter, but Orlando scored 20 of the next 28 points.

McGrady nailed two 3-pointers and scored eight points during the stretch, which brought the Magic within 70-67 at 3:50 of the third period.

Orlando shot 53 percent (20-of-38) in the second half but were outdone by Miami, which made 25-of-39 shots in the final 24 minutes.

"In the second half we made some big shots. However the Heat responded and made some bigger shots," McGrady said. "It was just one of those nights we got outrebounded and they just outworked us. Things just didn't go right for us tonight."
