Game Story

MIAMI (Ticker) -- Jamal Mashburn and P.J. Brown continue to haunt Pat Riley. Mashburn snapped out of his recent funk with 21 points and Brown collected 20 and 14 rebounds as the duo dominated their former team and led the New Orleans Hornets to an 87-83 victory over the Miami Heat. Mashburn played like an MVP candidate during the Hornets' eight-game winning streak but struggled as New Orleans lost two of its last three games, managing just 45 points on 27 percent (15-of-56) shooting. "Some nights are just like that and you have to find other ways to win," Mashburn said. "It's a tough racket this time of year, everyone's dealing with bumps and bruises. You can have off nights as long as you continue to win." The veteran forward, who played under Riley from 1997-2000, has excelled against his former squad this season. He scored 35 points in the first game between the teams, had 15 points and 14 rebounds in Miami on February 11 and recorded a triple-double against the Heat last month. Mashburn continued to give Riley headaches in the series finale, making 7-of-18 shots from the floor and collecting seven assists and five rebounds. The game was tied at 77-77 with four minutes remaining before Mashburn took over. He made a short jump shot to give New Orleans the lead for good with 3:47 remaining and sank a fadeaway jumper 67 seconds later. Mashburn buried a 15-footer and Brown, who played for the Heat from 1996-2000, made a layup with 51 seconds left to give the Hornets an 85-79 cushion. "They're great players," Riley said of Mashburn and Brown. "There's no doubt they wanted to prove a point to me and they've done that. I don't need any more." Vladimir Stepania made a layup and Travis Best made two free throws to bring Miami within 85-83 with seven seconds to go. But Mashburn sank a pair of free throws with 4.7 seconds remaining to seal New Orleans' seventh straight victory over Miami. "It didn't matter if it was against the Heat or the Denver Nuggets, we just needed this win," Brown said. "We needed it in the worst way. We have 15 games left and every game is crucial." Jamaal Magloire had 11 points, 11 rebounds and four blocks for the Hornets, who held a 49-35 advantage on the glass. Butler tied a season high with 25 points and Stepania added a season-high 17 for the Heat, who have lost five consecutive home games. "We played about as well as we could play," Riley said. "They kept making the timely plays in the fourth quarter. Mash made three consecutive jumpers and P.J. has a couple of shots." "We played tough. We got the shots we wanted," Butler said. "I guess we were just a stop or two away from winning the game." Butler scored 15 points and Stepania had 11 in the first half as Miami shot 52 percent (22-of-42) in the first half and jumped out to a 48-40 lead. The Heat had their largest lead at 52-42 less than two minutes into the third quarter. But Miami shot just 33 percent (13-of-40) after halftime while New Orleans made 54 percent (21-of-39) of its shots. "We just decided to pick our defense up at halftime," Mashburn said. "We knew what we were capable of and we knew what they had. Sometimes they have trouble scoring unless they can get easy baskets and we tried to limit those in the second half." "In the first half we did not come up with a defensive presence and the second half we did," Hornets coach Paul Silas said. "That's the reason we won the game." Brown collected 12 points and 12 rebounds in the third as the Hornets rallied. He scored his team's first eight points in the quarter and gave New Orleans its first lead since the first quarter at 60-58 on a hook shot with 40 second left. "I just didn't want to lose," he said. "I had a horrible first half - one rebound. I didn't care about the points, I just wanted to get my rebounding together. Everything just fell into place." "P.J. just wouldn't let us lose, that is all there was to it," Silas said. After a dunk by Butler tied it, Mashburn buried a 3-pointer with 24.6 seconds to go. The Hornets took a 63-62 lead into the final period after Malik Allen made a jumper in the final second.
