By Tom D'Angelo Palm Beach Post Staff Writer MIAMI Miami Heat guard Tim Hardaway is being considered to fill one of the two open spots on this summer's World Championship team. Hardaway was a member of the 1994 World Championship team but could not play because of a knee injury. "I would probably go because I did miss the one in Toronto," Hardaway said. San Antonio's Tim Duncan is considered a lock to fill one of the two spots. Seattle's Vin Baker and Gary Payton, Minnesota's Tom Gugliotta and Kevin Garnett, Washington's Chris Webber, Atlanta's Christian Laettner, Charlotte's Glen Rice, Detroit's Grant Hill, Milwaukee's Terrell Brandon and New York's Allan Houston are on the team. Gugliotta and Brandon are injured and may need to be replaced. The World Championship Games are in Greece.

Miami also posted season-highs with 13 blocked shots and 41 fourth quarter points. "This was one of our best games," Riley said. Riley-coached teams have won eight straight against the Rockets, last losing when hi. Knicks were beaten in the J seventh game of the 19941; Finals at Houston, and have! won the last five by an average of 24.8 points. The Rockets were with-, out two of their three future Hall of Famers. Clyde Drexler did not make the trip '. and Charles Barkley's shoul-: der allegedly was sore. Bark-; ley played 18 minutes at Or- lando on Friday after missing ' two games and said Saturday, "I'm feeling fine. ... I think I'm well enough to play. I'm here to play." On Sunday though. Barkley looked as it he was suffering from South Beachitis after two nights in Miami. HEAT Frotn 1C More important to the Heat was they gained a game on the Pacers, who lost at home to San Antonio, and now lead Indiana by 1.5 games in the conference in a race for home-court advantage if they meet in the second round of the playoffs. The victory was a replay of Miami's romp in Houston 3'2 weeks ago. In that game, Miami outscored the Rockets 66-40 in the second half. Sunday the Heat won the second half 67-38. Miami's margin of victory equals the sixth highest in franchise history. The Heat beat Portland by 32 last Sunday and have won six in a row and 24-of-23. "This isn't a time to get inflated and take a step back." Rilev said. the Heat were led by Majerle's season-high 22 points and Tim Hardaway's season-hiph 15 assists.
