Game Story

MIAMI (Ticker) -- All-Star Jamal Mashburn helped the New Orleans Hornets get their playoff drive off to an excellent start. Mashburn collected 15 points and 14 rebounds against his former team as the Hornets extended their winning streak against the Miami Heat to five games with a 78-69 victory. New Orleans trailed by four points midway through the third quarter when a pair of jumpers by Mashburn ignited a 20-4 run to close the period. "We're on the right track," said Mashburn, whose team is in sixth place in the Eastern Conference playoff race. "We're playing tough defense. We got a tough Indiana team tomorrow, but we'll be fine. We're motivated and ready to go." Courtney Alexander came off the bench and scored five of New Orleans' final seven points in the surge, opening a 60-48 cushion and helping the Hornets snap a four-game road skid. "We knew it was going to be tough shooting coming off the (All-Star) break," Alexander said. "But we got it done. Everybody collectively got it done as a team. We are going to need everyone going into the second half (of the season)." Charlotte likely will battle Milwaukee, Philadelphia, Washington and Orlando for one of the last four playoff spots in the conference. Jamaal Magloire also had 15 points on 7-of-11 shooting as New Orleans' overall winning streak grew to three. Acquired in the deal that sent Mashburn and P.J. Brown to the Hornets in 2000, Eddie Jones scored 26 points, but the Heat lost for the sixth time in eight games. Jones also suffered a strained left groin in the final period. "I tried to beat someone off the dribble," he said. "I called a timeout when I was lying on the floor. I tried to make a quick move and I felt it then. I was trying to make a comeback. I'll come in tomorrow and try and do something with it." Mashburn averaged 31.7 points in his previous three games before making his first career All-Star appearance Sunday. In this one, the 6-8 forward nailed jumpers from 15 and 18 feet to tie it at 44-44 with 4:55 to go in the third quarter. New Orleans had a three-point advantage when Mashburn got a feed from Brown and scored from just inside the arc to make it 49-44 with 3:17 left. George Lynch made his third straight start as part of New Orleans' big lineup with Magloire and three forwards. He pulled down two of his three offensive rebounds during the Hornets' outburst. A North Carolina product, Lynch made a hook shot and a pair from the line around a jumper by Miami rookie Caron Butler as New Orleans' lead grew to 53-46 with just under two minutes remaining. "When we go with the big lineup, we're tough to guard and we also can guard people," Mashburn said. "We switch a lot of different things and it makes it easier on us." The Hornets dominated the boards, outrebounding the Heat, 15-3, in the third quarter and 49-31 for the game. "We were up four rebounds at halftime and then we outrebounded them by 18, which really says something about our guys," New Orleans coach Paul Silas said. "We picked it up in the second half and really dominated. We really needed this win." Alexander missed all four of his shots in the first half but found his touch late in the third. The 6-5 guard's 22-foot jumper gave New Orleans a nine-point cushion. "The first team that took any assertive, aggressive control was going to win the game," Heat coach Pat Riley said. "The fact that we couldn't rebound the ball did us in. We were not sharp." After Brian Grant and Brown traded baskets, Alexander converted a three-point play with 34 seconds to go. That sent the Hornets into the final quarter with a commanding 60-48 cushion.
