s c THE PALM BEACH POST MONDAY, DECEMBER 1, 1997 9C Heat Calendar In the Paint Upcoming game NovemberDecember RUN FOR THE AGES: Houston went on a 27-0 run Saturday against Golden State in a 107-100 win. During the run, the Rockets held Golden State scoreless for nearly nine minutes. When the run began, the Rockets trailed by 18 points. When it ended, they led by nine. NO SWEET HOME: This week, . the Washington Wizards move from US Airways Arena to the . new MCI Center. Said the Wizards' Tracy Murray about the old arena: "Tear it down, tear it down. . . . Ever since I've been '. here, it's like somebody put a hex, on this place. Tear it down."

We aren't coming off the bench with any slouches." JOHN STARKS, Knicks guard TV: SUN - Sunshine. Shaded games at Miami Arena; All times EDT REPORT Mourning works out, still weak-kneed Heat sey's game Sunday night. Austin is averaging 18.6 points and 9.6 rebounds and among the NBA's top 20 shooting at 52.2 percent. Including 16 games last season Mourning missed, most because of a foot injury, the Heat are 22-9 with Austin subbing for their star center. Mourning participated in 3-on-3, full-court drills Sunday running, jumping, setting picks and working through screens. He did no 5-on-5 work. "I have never experienced this type of weakness that I have in my left leg," he said. "The doctor said it's only going to get better with time. It's just part of the process. I don't have ; any strength in it at all. I'm doing a lot but I'm definitely compensating with my right leg." Said Riley, "He's a long way away. . Until I see him really efficient, moving comfortably, and in condition, I'm" not going to put him in there." Starting off guard Voshon Lenard missed Sunday's practice with a severely sprained left ankle, suffered in the first half against Milwaukee oil Saturday. Miami's next game is Wednesday . at home against Philadelphia. ; By Ed Price Palm Beach Post Staff Writer MIAMI Alonzo Mourning practiced full speed with the Miami Heat on Sunday for the first time since preseason surgery on his left knee. Mourning said he expects to be back before the Christmas Day game at Chicago. Coach Pat Riley estimated in two to three weeks. "When I first got hurt I said eight weeks," said Mourning, who had surgery Sept. 27 to repair a partial tear of the patellar tendon. "I like to go into things with a positive attitude. I put higher demands on myself to get back early. Summaries "Unfortunately my body controls me and my body tells me it's not ready. I can't let anybody else pressure me into coming back sooner than when I'm supposed to come back. It would be foolish because I'm 27 years old and I can play 10 more years in this league." Another reason Mourning can take some time is Miami's success in his absence.

Atlanta, eclipsing its previous record of 12 victories for the month, has won three in a row to improve its NBA-best record to 14-2. The Hawks were never threatened by the Spurs, who didn't arrive in Atlanta until 3 a.m. after defeating Dallas the previous night in San Antonio. Atlanta led 24-10 with two minutes remaining in the first quarter after Mutombo hit a hook shot, and the Spurs never got closer than 34-28 on Sean Elliott's 15-foot jumper with 7:06 left in the second period. D Lakers 105, Raptors 99: Eddie Jones scored 11 of his 32 points in the first quarter as host Los Angeles started fast before having to hold off Toronto. The Lakers remained the only NBA team without a home loss. The Raptors dropped their 13th straight the longest losing streak in the league this season as their NBA-worst record fell to 1-15. The victory was the seventh in a row for the Lakers at the Forum, and 11th straight at home dating back to last season. Their 13-2 overall record is the second-best in the league behind Atlanta's 14-2 mark. Nick Van Exel had 17 points and 10 assists, and Rick Fox scored 17 for Los Angeles. B Pacers 101, 76ers 89: Coach Larry Brown's return to Indiana was a failure for his 76ers as Rik Smits has season highs of 25 points and five blocked shots and Mark Jackson had a season-high 14 assists as the Pacers won in Indianapolis.

Tech-nical fouls: Elie, 4:48 second; Drexler, 4:18 The Associated Press LA QUINTA, Calif. Tom Lehman, who strived for a decade just to play on the PGA Tour, made seven birdies on the final nine holes Sunday to capture the Skins Game with $300,000 in winnings. Lehman, who completed the first day with two birdies worth a total of $130,000, added $170,000 on Sunday by winning four more holes. With the "skins" and the money carried over on holes that were tied, Lehman won 10 skins. He and Mark O'Meara captured most of the $600,000 purse. O'Meara earned $240,000 that included $100,000 on the first playoff hole to conclude the two-day, 18-hole event at Rancho La Quinta Country Club. Tiger Woods was shut out on the final nine holes after winning one hole worth $60,000 Saturday. David Duval, a late replacement for Fred Couples, did not win any money. Couples withdrew Wednesday to be with his father, Tom Couples, who died Thursday. Lehman finished with a seven-under 29 on the back nine. Although round scores are insignificant in the Skins Game, in which players sometimes don't even putt out, Lehman's 18-hole card included a Skins record 10 birdies and no bogeys for a 61. Making his first appearance in the Skins Game, Lehman sank an 8-foot putt worth $60,000 on No. 11, a 4-footer for $30,000 on No. 12, and another 8-footer for $40,000 on No. 13, becoming the first player in the 15-year history of the Skins Game to win three consecutive holes. "There was nothing we could do about Tom Lehman," O'Meara said. "He was on fire out there." "I just kept saying, 'Nice shot, Tom; nice . putt, Tom; good hole, Tom," Woods said. "The guy went berserk on us." Lehman wrapped up his big payday by sinking a 7-footer for another birdie on No; 17.
