Steals: 15 (Bowen 5, Knight 4, Barros By Tom D'Angelo Palm Beach Post Staff Writer MIAMI The game started to look a lot like Saturday when the Miami Heat blew a 17-point lead before the Philadelphia 76ers decided to play giveaway. By the end, Miami avoided another collapse, escaping with a 94-90 victory Wednesday at the Miami Arena, in a game that had coach Pat Riley concerned right down to Tim Hardaway's free throw with 1.2 seconds to play. "We made enough plays down the stretch to win the game and that's what it's about at this time," Riley said. "But we're not finishing well." Said Heat center Ike Austin, who had 28 points, 20 in the first half: "We can't handle a lead." Although the 76ers never led, the game began taking on the characteristics of Saturday's loss to Milwaukee in the third quarter. The Heat built another double-digit lead (this time 13) before they started settling for long shots and turning over the ball. Part of the Heat problem was they got little from Jamal Mashburn, who had 10 points but shot just 3-of-12 from the floor, missed all but one of his seven three-point attempts and was just 3-of-8 from the line. But a combination of the 76ers self destructing and Eric Murdock playing his best game of season (17 points on 7-of-10 shooting) helped the Heat hold off Philadelphia. After tying the game at 74, Philadelphia had five turnovers in a 3:34 span and Murdock took advantage by scoring six points. Murdock had 11 points in the quarter. Hardaway, who scored 20 points and added 11 assists, appreciates Murdock's contributions. His minutes are down slightly from his 38.7 per game a year ago mainly because of Murdock. Murdock and Dan Ma-jerle split the shooting guard duties as Voshon Lenard missed the game to give his sprained left ankle another day's rest. Majerle received the start, his first of the season. Although his line was modest seven points, eight rebounds in a season-high 36 minutes Majerle's hustle helped the Heat maintain their lead throughout the fourth quarter. Majerle even had an exchange with Jerry Stack-house late in the game on a play in which Majerle was called for an offensive foul. Majerle, though, complained that Stackhouse pushed him in his tender back and let Stackhouse know as they met at center court. The two received double technicals. Stackhouse had eight of the 76ers' 22 turnovers. Philadelphia was led by Allen Iverson, who had 21 points on 10-of-19 shooting. Last season, Iverson shot 7-of-43 (.163) against Miami. Miami stretched the lead to nine points late in the game before Philadelphia took advantage of poor free-throw shooting by the Heat, something that has been uncharacteristic this year. In the last 31 seconds, Miami missed 5-of-8 free throws. "We can't get satisfied when we get a big lead," Murdock said. "We get a big lead and we take quick shots that we would not take in a close game. We have got to learn to finish off teams." B Noteworthy: Stack-house, the subject of trade rumors all season, thinks he'll be dealt soon, and would like to come to Miami. "If it happens, I don't think there would be a better choice (than Miami)," Stack-house said. "I like the way they play." Stackhouse, though, is a free agent this summer and any team interi ested in acquiring him must be sure it can re-sign him. Stackhouse said he'd take less to play for a winner. "Sometimes you sacrifice money," he said. "If you can make $30 million and play for a bad team or $20 million and play for a team with a chance to win a championship, I'd take the $20 million. Who's going to spend all that money anyway." 4, Edney, Billups). Technical fouls: None. Illegal defense: None.

Two fans had pro-Sprewell signs taken away from them before the Cavs game. One sign said "Free Spree" and the other said: "Confucius Say, 'If the coach don't fit, you must aquit (cq).'" Sprewell attacked Carlesimo in two separate confrontations about 15 minutes apart Monday. He told the San Francisco Chronicle he warned Carlesimo "I'll kill you" and grabbed him by the throat after the coach threw him out of practice. But Sprewell denied he punched Carlesimo, saying he never got close enough because teammates and coaches held him back. The Warriors had been continuing their efforts to trade Sprewell, although St. Jean acknowledged some teams may have been scared off by the attack. "We had dialogue with other teams, but we decided today we were not going to go in that direction," St. Jean said at the news conference. "The right thing to do is not to trade him, but to terminate his contract. Sprewell said he would have preferred to be traded and that he'd never feel comfortable around Carlesimo again. But he said he's prepared to play outside the NBA or nowhere at all. "Oh my God," Tellem said upon hearing Sprewell had gone on television. Tellem had been busy all day trying to craft a public apology in the hopes that it would help further a trade of his client. The . suspension would have cost Sprewell about $940,000 in salary.
