8C THE PALM BEACH POST THURSDAY, DECEMBER 4, 1 997 . Heat Calendar Upcoming games In the Paint NovemberDecember IS REPORT AGE-OLD PROBLEM: Richard Lapchick, who helps the NBA run its rookie orientation programs: "All of these kids not just the basketball players who become millionaires are proving tougher to socialize." NO INTRODUCTION NECESSARY: Sacramento's Michael Stewart made an unheralded entrance onto the NBA scene. "I didn't even know who he was," forward Billy Owens said. "I found out when he started blocking my shots." You have to be unrealistic at times. Realistic people live in a box. We try to jump out of the box."

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. "Our offense gets a little stagnant," Riley said. "One thing Eric is going to do is put his head down and go to the basket, which is what we like." When asked if the plays to him were by design, Murdock said: "They weren't saying, 'We've got to get Eric Murdock off.' It just was in the flow of the game." Hardaway, who scored 20 points and added 11 assists, appreciates Murdock's contributions. "I'm just happy he's here," said Hardaway, whose 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 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 dodged a bullet but we'll take it," Riley said. "We made enough plays down the stretch to win the game and that's what it's about at this time. 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) house, the subject of trade rumors all season, thinks he'll be dealt soon, and would like to come to Miami.

The player happened to be his son, Patrick. 1985: New York Yankees Billy Martin's most famous altercation occurred in a hotel bar in Baltimore with Ed Whitson. Martin came out of the affair with a broken right arm. 1980: Dave Bristol, then manager of the San Francisco Giants, got into a clubhouse scuffle with John Montesfusco.

And it's been over a month or so now, and I just couldn't take the verbal abuse that he's been giving all the guys over the past month or so," Sprewell said. Sprewell was suspended for at least 10 games, and the game against the Cavs was supposed to be the first of those 10. Carlesimo, a three-inch scar on his neck slowly starting to heal, was given a standing ovation by a few fans Wednesday night during pre-game introductions in the half-empty arena. Brian Shaw started in place of Sprewell. It was just the second start Sprewell has missed this season the other came Nov. 12, three days after Sprewell was benched for laughing in a team huddle while the Warriors were being blown out by the Los Angeles Lakers. 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 reports he punched Carlesimo, saying he never got close enough because teammates and coaches held him back. In the KPIX television interview, Sprewell smiled frequently as he talked at his home in the Hayward Hills area south of Oakland. ; "It's not just myself, we have other players on the team that he has also totlll 240 33-77 17 28 11-38 20 20 89 Percentages: FG .429, FT .680.
