Apr. 07, 1999
TORONTO (AP) _ Alonzo Mourning had 20 points, 13 rebounds and seven blocked shots as the Miami Heat snapped the Toronto Raptors' six-game winning streak with a 92-70 victory Tuesday night.
P.J. Brown also had a double-double with 16 points and 10 rebounds for Miami, which won its second straight after losing four in a row.
John Wallace and Tracy McGrady, who had 10 rebounds, both had 12 points off the bench for Toronto, which had its lowest point total of the season and saw its nine-game home winning streak ended.
The Raptors' previous low was 73 points in Miami on March 11.
Vince Carter added 10 points and nine rebounds for Toronto, which shot 29.6 percent (24-for-81).
The win was Heat coach Pat Riley's 935th, tying Dick Motta for fourth place on the NBA's career list.
Miami, which beat Toronto all three times this season, outscored Toronto 25-11 in the third quarter, led by two 3-pointers from Dan Majerle, who finished with 11 points.
In their three games this season, Miami outscored Toronto 85-35 in the third quarter, including a franchise-low for Toronto (eight points) in the March 11 game.
The Raptors couldn't generate anything inside, mainly due to Mourning. Toronto didn't fare any better at the free throw line shooting 55.9 percent (19-for-34). The Heat outscored the Raptors 38-16 in the paint.
