MIAMI - So much intrigue, crammed into 14 seconds. Vapormax Danmark Online . A pair of former Connecticut stars, going 1-on-1 as if they were willing to decide it themselves. A one-point game, one team about to end a losing streak and a tip-in try that added more drama with every bounce off the rim.Definitely an experience, Luol Deng said.For the Miami Heat, a welcomed one.Deng scored 26 points, Chris Bosh and Mario Chalmers each added 20 and the Heat watched Charlotte miss three potential go-ahead shots in the final seconds on the way to beating the Hornets 94-93 on Sunday night and snapping a three-game home slide.It was a good step, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said.Chalmers had 10 assists for his second double-double of the season and Shabazz Napier scored 14 for the Heat.Al Jefferson finished with 22 points and 12 rebounds for Charlotte, which got 17 points from Lance Stephenson and 16 from Kemba Walker but wound up seeing its skid reach five games. The Hornets trailed by nine at the half and then led by as many as eight in the fourth, before Miami rallied.The stretch of games weve played has definitely taken their toll on our confidence, Hornets coach Steve Clifford said.Working from the right side of the lane, Bosh spun free from Cody Zeller and scored from the right baseline to give Miami a 94-93 lead with 31 seconds remaining.Thats when the fun started.Walker missed with 26 seconds left and Charlotte down by one. The Heat got the rebound and the Hornets appeared to be trying to foul Chalmers near midcourt.No foul was called, the ball got knocked away and after a deflection out of bounds the Hornets had possession with 14 seconds remaining. Walker went at Napier — UConn great vs. UConn great — and missed a short jumper, Jefferson got a good try at the tip, and the ball bounced off the rim as the horn sounded.I got a pretty good look, Walker said.Said Bosh: Im just glad we won. For real.Charlottes lead was eight midway through the fourth, and the Heat were mired in a stretch where they had two field goals in more than 9 minutes. But Miami put together a flurry, setting up the back-and-forth finish.Bosh hit a 3-pointer, Napier had a pair of free throws after a steal and then — off a drive-and-dish by Chalmers — Napier added a 3-pointer to cap an eight-point, 43-second burst and give Miami an 87-86 lead.There were four more lead changes from there.We had our shots, Jefferson said. We had the shots we wanted. We just didnt make them.TIP-INSHornets: Stephenson isnt exactly a fan favourite in Miami, given his role in the Pacers-Heat rivalry in recent seasons. They hate me everywhere, he told fans sitting courtside during a fourth-quarter stoppage. ... Charlotte isnt planning on having F Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (right foot) back anytime soon, and G P.J. Hairston (ankle) is also likely out for a few more days, Clifford said.Heat: G Dwyane Wade (left hamstring) missed his sixth straight game. ... G Norris Cole (dislocated finger) sat for the second straight game and F Chris Andersen departed with 2:59 left in the first quarter with a right ankle sprain. ... Houston Astros draft pick Bryan Radziewski, a former University of Miami star left-hander, was part of the sold-out crowd.BIG THIRDCharlotte opened the second half on an 11-2 run, on the way to outscoring Miami 28-14 in the first 12 minutes following intermission. The Heat won despite shooting 38 per cent in the second half.CLOSING UNITPartly because of injuries, partly because the unit was working, Spoelstra didnt make a single substitution in the final 7:28. Chalmers got to the foul line 10 times in the fourth quarter and Miami got 15 free throws to Charlottes three in the final period.UP NEXTHornets: Host the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday.Heat: Host Golden State on Tuesday.

They had a hard landing Monday night and still managed to keep themselves in the thick of the post-season hunt. Zach Randolph had 20 points and 11 rebounds, Mike Conley added 19 points and the Grizzlies kept pace in the playoff race with a 94-92 win over the Denver Nuggets. The Grizzlies moved into a three-way tie with Dallas and Phoenix for seventh in the Western Conference. Memphis plays both teams once more -- at the Suns on April 14 and home against the Mavericks in the regular-season finale two days later. The rest of the schedule includes road games at Minnesota and San Antonio, and a home game with Miami, which is battling for the top seed in the Eastern Conference. "Weve got to keep playing," Randolph said. "Each game is an important game for us, so weve got to come out with a sense of urgency." Courtney Lee scored 19 points for Memphis, which stopped a two-game skid after an adventurous flight from Portland into Denver early Monday morning. The Grizzlies landing into Denver International Airport was rough thanks to high winds in the area. "Oh my gosh," Randolph said. "Oh man." The Grizzlies also handled the turbulence created by the Nuggets. Randolph said the Grizzlies have to be ready for teams with nothing on the line, especially with every game important in their playoff push. "A lot of teams is just free-styling, aint going post-season so they dont care so theyre playing freely," he said. "Were playing for something so weve got to come out from the beginning." The Nuggets nearly hurt Memphis playoff chances, coming from seven down in the fourth to make it a last-possession game. Denver rallied to get within 88-86 on Timofey Mozgovs free throw and the teams traded buckets before Conley banked in a 3-pointer to make it 93-88 with 36 seconds left. "Mike Conley hit a big shot," Memphis coach David Joerger said. "I thought we did a good job of executing in getting the shots we waanted down the stretch. Vapormax Plus Herre Danmark. " After Randy Foye hit a layup for the Nuggets, Randolph missed a pair of free throws with 8.2 seconds remaining. Denver got the rebound, called a timeout and set up a play for the 7-foot-1 Mozgov at the 3-point line. He missed but then dunked the rebound to get the Nuggets within 93-92. "We know that I can make 3s," Mozgov said. "We tried. I just missed it. It wasnt good." The miss wasnt as costly as Mozgovs decision to dunk his rebound instead of pass it out to a teammate for another attempt to tie the game. "What surprised me is he didnt kick it back out when he got the dunk," Randolph said. Lee was fouled with 0.7 seconds left, hit the first free throw and deliberately missed the second to end the game. Nuggets coach Brian Shaw didnt think Lees missed free throw hit the rim and pleaded with the refs to look at the replay. The officials told him it wasnt a reviewable play. "In a situation where its a deadball and theres three referees and theres no live action going on, just looking at the free throw, I dont understand why that cant be seen," Shaw said. Mozgov tied a career high with 23 points to go with 10 rebounds and Kenneth Faried had 17 points for the Nuggets, who have dropped four in a row. The teams play again Friday in Memphis. The Grizzlies jumped out to 16-point lead in the second quarter on Lees 13 points. But the Nuggets rallied behind Mozgov, who had seven points in the final 3:01 on three dunks and a free throw to cut Memphis lead to 47-45 at the break. Randolph took over late in the third quarter to help Memphis build a 75-68 lead heading into the fourth. Randolph scored 11 of his 13 points in the period in the final 4:16 as the Grizzlies expanded a two-point lead to seven. NOTES: Nuggets F Wilson Chandler missed his fifth straight game with a left groin strain. ... The Grizzlies are 27-11 since Marc Gasol returned from a sprained MCL in his left knee on Jan. 14. ... The Nuggets had just 10 players available for the game. ' ' '
