THE PALM BEACH POST MONDAY, DECEMBER 1, 1997 9C J Heat Calendar In the Paint Upcoming games 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." MSA REPORT !

Shaded games at Miami Arena; All times EDT Conference standings t Mourning works out, still weak-kneed EASTERN CONFERENCE ATLANTIC W L Pet GB St. Home Away Conf 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 522 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 se-. verely sprained left ankle, suffered hi the first half against Milwaukee orC-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. The Hawks then pulled away with a 14-3 run sparked by their bench. El-drige Recasner and Ed Gray each scored four points during the spurt. Another reserve, Chucky Brown, was one of five Atlanta players in double figures at the end of the night with a season-best 14 points. The Hawks led 60-45 at half time and built the lead as high as 26 points before San Antonio closed with some meaningless baskets at the end. Atlanta turned in two impressive performances over the weekend, also beating Charlotte 98-80 on Saturday. 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. Both teams had five players in double figures. Jerry Stackhouse was high scorer for the 76ers with 21. It was Indiana's sixth consecutive victory over Philadelphia, although Brown was on the Pacers'; bench for the first five. Brown resigned as Indh ana's coach after finishing 39-43 last season. Jalen Rose also had a season high for the Pacers, scoring 11 of his 17 points in -the fourth quarter SuperSonics 103, Magic 81: Vin Baker scored all 21 of his points in the first half as host Seattle -built a big early lead and , rolled to its seventh straight . victory. The Magic had won sev- en of their previous eight , games, but the Sonics domi- nated and led by 20 points midway through the second period. Orlando cut its deficit . to single digits only once the ' rest of the way. Grizzlies 97, Pistons 95: Vancouver completed A sweep of the season series against struggling Detroit . when Grant Hill missed two" foul shots with 2.1 seconds left in Auburn Hills, Mich. Antonio Daniels hit a short running jumper with . 3.1 seconds left to break a tie, and Shareef Abdur-Rahim then fouled Hill on the inbounds pass. But Hill . missed the first free throw; and no one could gain control after he intentionally missed the second. LATE SATURDAY ?

Team Codes The New York Knicks and their league-leading defense held Phoenix to 10 points In the first quarter and 45 points below their road average In a 102-80 victory over the Suns. 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 SNAPPED consecutive holes. "There was nothing we could do about : Tom Lehman," O'Meara said. "He was on ';' fire out there." ;j "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. B Noteworthy: The field for the Senior Skins Jan. 24-25 in Hawaii will consist of four-time defending champion Raymond Floyd, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Hale Irwin.
