Mourning, Miami Shut Out Spurs Down the Stretch

MIAMI (AP) -- Alonzo Mourning outplayed David Robinson down the stretch and the Miami Heat scored the game's final 10 points to beat San Antonio 96-89.


Mourning scored 25 points, including a hook shot over Robinson with two minutes left to give the Heat the lead for good Monday night.


Miami held San Antonio without a basket in the final seven minutes to rally from an 86-74 deficit.


The Heat, who had lost seven of their past eight games, beat a team with a winning record for the first time since Nov. 18. Their next four games are against teams with winning records.


San Antonio, which leads the Midwest Division, has lost three of its past four games, all on the road.


Robinson had 25 points but only four in the second half, when he was slowed by foul trouble. The All-Star center, who had averaged 33 points in his five previous games against Mourning, fouled out for the first time this season with 21 seconds left.


Vancouver 100, Milwaukee 92. In Milwaukee, Blue Edwards scored 18 points and led an inspired effort by four former Milwaukee players as the Vancouver Grizzlies snapped a 16-game road losing streak with a 100-92 victory over the stunned Bucks.


Bryant Reeves scored 22 points for expansion Vancouver, which hadn't won away from home since a 92-80 victory at Portland in the season opener Nov. 3.


Former Bucks Eric Mobley, Eric Murdock and Anthony Avent provided the second-half scoring punch, and Mobley capped the surge with a dunk just before the buzzer.


The four former Bucks combined for 19 of the Grizzlies' 29 fourth-quarter points as Vancouver overcame a 72-71 deficit heading into the final period.


Hawks 105, Rockets 96. In Atlanta, Steve Smith scored 26 points and Craig Ehlo had 20 of his season-high 25 in the final 14:30 as the Atlanta Hawks downed the Houston Rockets for their eighth straight victory.Clyde Drexler led the Rockets with 23 points and Hakeem Olajuwon added 20.


Mookie Blaylock added 20 for Atlanta, and Henry James, a recent signee from the CBA, scored 16 for Houston, including four 3-point baskets.
