i 1 w y y f t ' t "n r r ' y 'R ' 1 y 8C THE PALM BEACH POST SATURDAY, MARCH 28, 1998 In the Paint Heat Calendar MarchApril PIECE OFFICERS: After Oliver Miller and Danny Ferry were ejected, Miller headed for the Cavs' dressing room looking for Ferry. "He wanted a piece of him," a witness told the Toronto Sun. The paper reported the 6-9, 340-pound Miller was stopped by seven security officials. FORGOTTEN TEAM: "I noticed on the TNT broadcast last night they never even mentioned us as a possibility for best record (in the NBA)," Lakers coach Del Harris said. "It's just Seattle, Chicago and Utah, and we're not even mentioned. And here we are, we're right there." He's going to need some of those boosters they had back then . . . they had the best team money could buy."

Coach Larry Brown, forward Derrick Coleman and guard Allen Iverson of the Philadelphia 76ers were fined by the NBA for publicly criticizing the referees following Wednesday's 91-86 loss to New Jersey. Brown and Coleman were fined $6,000 each by NBA senior vice president of basketball oper-. ations Rod Thorn. Iverson received a $3,000 fine. , LATE THURSDAY Warriors 98, Supersonics 91: Clarence Weatherspoon scored 12 second-half points, including a: decisive putback basket with 1:14 remaining, as host Golden State de- , feated Seattle. Trail Blazers 108, Grizzlies 102: Host Portland clinched its 16th playoff berth as Arvydas Sabonis had 24 points and eight rebounds to lead the Trail Blazers over Vancouver. 32-3 22-14 35-9 26- 8 23-13 34-11 27- 8 18-17 25-17 22- 10 19-18 26-17 20-13 19-18 21-23 23- 13 1 1-24 22-22 20-16 10-24 17-29 10-25 6-28 7-35 The Associated Press ATLANTA Michael Jordan didn't disappoint a crowd of 62,046 the largest in NBA history as he scored 34 points to lead the Chicago Bulls to their eighth straight victory, an 89-74 rout of the Atlanta Hawks. Jordan, making what might have been his final appearance in Atlanta, wowed the Georgia Dome throng at the offensive end, shut down Steve Smith at the defensive end and finished off by making a left-handed free throw when the game was decided. Scottie Pippen didn't play because of the flu, but Scott Burrell backed up Jordan with 18 points, only his seventh double-figure performance of the season. The turnout broke the previous NBA record of 61,983, set Jan. 29, 1988, for a game between Boston and Detroit at the Pontiac Silverdome. B Pacers 133, Hornets 96: Reggie Miller scored 24 points before being ejected for a flagrant foul on Houston in Orlando, giving coach Chuck Daly his 600th career victory. The triumph gave the Magic a sweep of the two-game season series for the fourth straight season, although Houston dominated the most meaningful games between the team during that stretch by winning four straight over Orlando in the 1995 NBA Finals. Spurs 110, 76ers 85: Tim Duncan scored 32 points, Will Perdue had a career-high 21 and San Antonio shot 92 percent in the third quarter to win at Philadelphia. Celtics 82, Nets 76: Boston rebounded from its lowest scoring half of the season to beat host New Jersey. B Noteworthy: Reserve Gary Trent and starting center Marcus Camby of the Toronto Raptors each were suspended one game without pay and fined $5,000 and $2,500, respectively, for leaving the bench during a third-period fight between Vlade Divac as Indiana trounced Charlotte in Indianapolis. The loss snapped a five-game winning streak for the Hornets, who dropped four games behind Indiana in the race for the third playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Rik Smits, questionable before the game because of ailing feet, had 24 points and 13 rebounds, Jalen Rose came off the bench to add 20 points and Antonio Davis scored 17 in Indiana's highest scoring game of the season. B Cavaliers 88, Pistons 87 (OT): Wesley Person hit a three-point shot with 0.3 seconds left in overtime to give host Cleveland the win over Detroit. Person wrestled away a rebound from the Pistons' Grant Hill with four seconds left, backed out past the 3-point line and let fly.

Illegal defense: 1. By Tom D'Angelo Palm Beach Post Staff Writer MIAMI P.J. Brown's sprained left ankle is more severe than the Heat thought, forcing the team to place him on the injured list Friday. Brown, injured Sunday, is required to miss at least five games, making him eligible to return April 7 at Minnesota. Brown had never been on the injured list in his five-year career. "We were a little more optimistic the first day," Heat coach Pat Riley said. "We should have put him on the injured list (before Wednesday's game at Boston). We lost a game basically." That game is against Charlotte in one week. The move also was made to assure that Brown would not try to come back too soon and further damage the ankle. "We also need to protect P.J. from coming back too early, which is what he may do," Riley said. Brown said the decision is a joint one. "I thought after the injury maybe I could come back (sooner)," Brown said. "I'm not used to this. I'll have to Percentages: FG .341, FT .818.

The news on the Heat's other injured-list players is encouraging. Keith Askins (knee surgery) will start running next week and Jamal Mashburn (thumb surgery) is down to a protective splint. m Noteworthy: The Heat awarded 10 Palm Beach County students grants totaling $5,000 as part of a program to help students achieve their objectives. In all, $25,000 was awarded to 47 students from Palm Beach, Broward and Dade counties. ... A New Hampshire teen will shoot a threer pointer for $1 million at half time of Sunday's game against Houston. Chris McCarthy won a contest sponr sored by a Heat corporate partner and was allowed to select anyone from her immediate family to take the shot. She chose her 16-year-old son, Eric Westerback.

Milwaukee already was without leader Terrell Brandon when leading scorer Glenn Robinson was injured three weeks ago. Since, Milwaukee has lostll-of-12. Milwaukee shot a season-low 30.9 percent, had 1 1 assists and 14 turnovers Ray Allen, the team's leading active scorer, missed all but one of his first 11 shots and scored just seven points. ' "You take three vital forces out of their lineup and I believe in those situations you got to play harder, you've got to give them your best shot early and try to get them to go away," Riley said. Riley altered his rotation, giving Conlon his first significant playing time since joining the Heat five weeks ago. "With P.J. (Brown) out I figured I might get some minutes," Conlon said. Conlon scored 48 seconds after entering, on a pass from Hardaway, who had 10 assists. "When I came off that pick-and-roll with Tim and hit that shot, that got me rolling." he said. Conlon was the first player off the bench in the second half, entering with 4:57 to play and staying on the court the rest of the half. Conlon took minutes from Terry Mills, who played just 10 (all in the first half) and was limping throughout. Mills, who has played six games since returning from the injured list, said his knee tightened Wednesday in Boston. HEAT From 1C was they probably thought here's a guy that doesn't have a game. I'm going to tell you, the guy has game." Conlon had 11 points equaling Tim Hardaway for second-high scoring honors behind Alonzo Mourning's 34 and six rebounds in 21 minutes. He entered the game with 12 points, nine rebounds and 12 minutes for the season. "He looks awkward but he's got great moves and he can shoot the ball," Dan Majerle said. The win improves the Heat's record to 50-21, marking the 13th year a Ril-ey-coached team has won at least 50 game. Riley took over the Lakers early in 1981-82 and has coached 14 full seasons since. His Heat team two years ago won 42 games. "If I had some players, I probably would have done it quicker," Riley said, smiling. The Heat dominated the undermanned Bucks in the paint, especially early as Mourning had 16 points in the first quarter and eight of the Heat's 17 field goals at the half. Mourning even impressed himself. After a relatively easy basket in the third quarter, one in which he was fouled by 6-foot-ll Ervin Johnson, Mourning flexed in front of the Milwaukee bench and stared at his arm as if admiring his physique. Members of the Bucks just shook their heads in disbelief.
