76ers Tie Record Low Score

COMBINED REPORTS


PHILADELPHIA -- The woeful Philadelphia 76ers have matched the lowest point total since the inception of the shot clock in a 66-57 loss to the Miami Heat.


The 76ers on Wednesday tied the total established by the Milwaukee Hawks in a 62-57 loss to the Boston Celtics on Feb. 27, 1955, the first season of the 24-second clock. That game is the only one in NBA history in which the teams combined for fewer points than Philadelphia and Miami produced.


"If all else fails play defense," said Miami center Alonzo Mourning, who had 16 points, 16 rebounds and five blocks. "That's what got it done tonight."


Philadelphia made just one of 19 3-pointers and hit 31.9 percent of its field goals. With 10 seconds left, Derrick Alston missed a short baseline shot and Clarence Weatherspoon missed a follow shot. Miami then dribbled out the clock, clinching the record low.


Magic 99, Pacers 97. In Indianapolis, Dennis Scott scored 32 points, including eight 3-pointers and a game-winning jumper at the buzzer, as Orlando got its first win at Market Square Arena since Nov. 27, 1992, a span that covered 10 games including four playoff meetings.


Warriors 95, Spurs 92. In Oakland, California, Joe Smith scored 27 points, including a pair of free throws with four seconds left, and Golden State put aside trade talk about Tim Hardaway and Rony Seikaly to beat San Antonio.


Hardaway and Seikaly have both asked to be traded. Warriors management said it has no interest in making a deal unless it sees a long-term benefit for the team. The trade deadline is late Thursday night. ()
