"At the beginning of the year, even before the (All-Star) break, I wasn't real happy with the way I was feeling and I thought maybe there was no chance I'd get better," Majerle said. "Now, I'm optimistic it will continue to get better and I just needed some time. "I still think I can play if my back holds up." Not long ago, Majerle was not so sure he'd even complete his contract, which expires after next season. His back was constantly sore and his legs were shot. Majerle couldn't practice and on certain days, couldn't sit on the bench without pain. About a month ago, his back started feeling better and the pain in his legs was subsiding. Majerle reentered the starting lineup about three weeks later after Keith Askins' injury. "He's dunking the ball, taking it very strong to the basket," Heat coach Pat Riley said. "I've looked at Dan as a facilitator, a ball mover, a post entry man, a trigger man. Now I'm looking for him now to shoot the ball so we're running some things for him." Majerle is averaging 34.5 minutes the past 11 games. In Wednesday's victory at Boston he was on the floor the first 16 minutes, longer than any starter, and played 42 minutes. And he's averaging 11.2 points in the past 11 games compared to 5.8 the first 52. Percentages: FG .384, FT .688. Three-point goals: 3-13, .331 (Allen 2-6, Honeycutt 1-5, Perry 0-1, Felck 0-1).

He had back surgery Jan. 30, 1997, and-now believes he may havej done too much too soon. I '. "It's been just over a year since the surgery and I never really took time off," he said. "I worked over the' summer and hurt myself; again. Maybe this time of not practicing and having limited minutes did me good." "I'm getting a little more lift and I feel I can take it to the basket a little bit," said Majerle, who still does not practice aside from riding a stationary bicycle and shooting. "And since Mash went down (Feb. 13) I took it upon myself to be more aggressive. Now when I come off (a screen) I not only look to pass, but take to the basket, take the shot if I'm open."
