The Pacers played without their two best players. Reggie Miller was suspended for one game for a flagrant foul against Charlotte's Vlade Divac on Friday, and Rik Smits has an injured foot. "I was wondering where we were going to get our scoring from today," said Pacers coach Larry Bird, who once scored 60 points in a game. The previous game low was 57, set three times, the last time by Orlando against Cleveland on Dec. 4, 1996. 76ers 99, Celtics 94: Derrick Coleman scored 13 of his 34 points in the fourth quarter as Philadelphia snapped a five-game losing streak by rallying to beat visiting Boston. Hawks 118, Pistons 95: Tyrone Corbin and Steve Smith each scored 20 points and Atlanta beat Detroit at the Georgia Dome. Cavaliers 97, Hornets 82: Shawn Kemp had 25 points and 11 rebounds and Derek Anderson scored 16 to lead Cleveland past visiting Charlotte. Bulls 104, Bucks 87: Michael Jordan scored 30 points, many of them with flashbulbs popping throughout the Bradley Center, as Chicago beat Milwaukee for its ninth straight victory.

Heat gain point air ball at half time Sun-dav with a chance to win 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 I lill, 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. Miller's time: Heat players thought Indiana's Reggie Miller got off light with a one-game suspension and $7,5X) fine for the elbow he threw at Charlotte's Vlade Divac. The players thought the play was worse than Keith Askins' takedown of Keith Van Horn at New Jersey.

Riley-coached teams have won eight straight against the Rockets, last losing when his Knicks were beaten in the seventh game of the 1994 Finals at Houston, and have won the last five by an average of 24.8 points. The Rockets were without two of their three future Hall of Famers. Clyde Drexler did not make the trip and Charles Barklcv's shoulder allegedly was stre.
