' Jordan repeated his claim ; that Dennis Rodman gets into ; Mourning's head in the ; newest issue of ESPN Maga- ' zine and went further in this ', week's Sports Illustrated. ; "It's more than athletic ; ability," Jordan told SI. ' "There's that mental, strength you need, and he ; doesn't have it. If you can can ; be taken out of your game by another player, the way he is : by Dennis, then there's; something missing." ; Mourning's name for Jor-. dan was not original. Heat.' coach Pat Riley referred to; Jordan as His Highness this ; season. B Bragging rights: Dur-', ing his two seasons in the' league, Celtics forward An-; toine Walker is 0-7 against' the Heat, something he is: constantly made aware of by ; Tim Hardaway, like Walker a native Chicagoan. "I need to get a win over Miami," said Walker. "I haven't beaten them yet At least I've beat the Bulls once, but I need to get one on Miami because (Hardaway) talks plenty of trash. "I le's one of the guys who grew up on the same side of town as I did, so it's important I get one on him before the-summer." 1 Walker has one more chance when the Celtics visit Miami on Tuesday. B Count your blessings: The Heat have won 15; games since Brent Barry joined the team five weeks ago. which is four more than his previous team, the Clippers, won the first 3Vi months of the season. "I'm eating it up," Barry said. "Sometimes these guys take it for granted. Coach is always harping that we got to do more and we got to do! more and guys are like, 'Man.! what more do we have to do?'; And I'm sitting there saying.; 'I ley. enjoy it while you can.'"! "Coming from where I; came from it's a special thing; to win." B Noteworthy: ' Hardaway missed all but one; of his seven three-point at-; tempts, leaving him with SAS-in his career. 4f V . hersey , rrniiami i, dowi, r-,i.i, Steals: 7 (Kersey 3, Payton 2, McMillan, Snlhnnvl Technical fouls: Anthony, 2:44 fourth Illegal defense: I Washingten 1.3 19 II 24 22 32-109 34 38 a 21-133 Con Ion Causwell 52 0 1 52 Seattle 24 071 192 2170 21.2 1009 10.7 1631 41 0 1403 40 0 1364 .1 ml H1M1I tM riUiriAlC Totala 240 31 7312 1614-40 20 13 78 Percentages: FG .425, FT .750.

Voshon Lenard added 17 points and Majerle (who recognizes Askins with his initials on his sneakers) had 13 points, seven rebounds and seven assists in 42 minutes. The depicted bench had just four points, all by Duane Causwell. "Some night we're a little bit thin," Riley said. The Heat, who shot 56.2 percent, could not shake the Celtics until the final minutes. Miami's lead did not reach double digits until 1:36 remained. "It's amazing how they play like that," Mourning said about Boston's style. "I don't see how they can do it on a regular basis. I don't know if they're going to be effective with it on a consistent basis." Thev certainly aren't against "the Heat, who have won eight straight against Boston.

Although Walker scored 29 points, he took 25 shots (making 11) and had just four field goals in the second half. Strickland took advantage of Walker's suspect defense. "Before the game Stan told me Walker is not one to get back on defense," Strickland said about his conversation with assistant coach Stan Van Gundy. Celtics coach Rick Pitino has noticed Strickland, who would be a perfect fit for the Celtics' up-tempo style. Note: Strickland will be a free agent at the end of the season and the Heat can offer no more than a starting salary of about $2.5 million. "If you watch the tapes, he outruns the tape," Pitino said. "You don't see that very often." Mourning and Tim Hardaway also took advantage of a defensive mismatches. Andrew DcGerq was no match for Mourning, who scored 26 points on 10-of-15 shooting.
