The 76ers received a cold slap back to reality last night in this steamy tropical town. Their ball movement on offense slowed. Their shooting cooled off. They had no success in dealing with Dwyane Wade. Antoine Walker made up for the fact that the Miami Heat had two starters, including Shaquille O'Neal, out with injuries. With Wade scoring 32 points and Walker making his first nine shots en route to 26 points, the Heat ended the Sixers' six-game winning streak with a 106-96 victory before a loud sellout crowd of 20,068 at American Airlines Arena.

Since the NBA lifted its embargo on trades and signings on July 14, the 76ers have signed one free agent and acquired two other players. And they continue to be active in trade talks. So yesterday, on a day when the Sixers introduced point guard Kevin Ollie and swingman Kedrick Brown, who were acquired Tuesday from Cleveland for Eric Snow, the potential for a bigger trade - a blockbuster - remained. One trade rumor that won't die suggests that forward Antoine Walker of the Dallas Mavericks could be reunited with the Sixers' new coach, Jim O'Brien, who coached him in Boston.

The Boston Celtics showed there's more to their team than just Paul Pierce and Antoine Walker. Pierce led five Celtics in double figures with 22 points in an 85-77 victory over host Detroit last night that evened the Eastern Conference semifinals at one game apiece and was their first road win of the playoffs. "We're tough to guard," said Eric Williams, who scored 18 points on 6-for-9 shooting. "We can put five guys out there who can shoot the three, and if they try to take that away from us, we can attack the inside.

The 76ers and the Celtics have spent their time practicing this week instead of taking verbal shots at each other as they get ready for tonight's Game 2 in their best-of-five playoff series. So what Celtics all-star forward Antoine Walker said after his team's workout here yesterday qualifies as spicy stuff in this week of blandness. Someone asked Walker about the widespread expectation that the Celtics will have to hold off an early charge by a Sixers team looking to atone for Sunday's 92-82 opening loss, convinced this is a must game.

Wade no rule-breaker The NBA said Dwyane Wade did not break any league tampering rules by saying he wants to talk with other marquee players before deciding whether to stay with the Miami Heat. Earlier this week, Wade reiterated that he will discuss options with LeBron James and other stars about their options this summer. Wade, James, and Chris Bosh are among the headliners who are expected to become free agents July 1. Meanwhile, a judge in Chicago said Wade's wife may fire her ninth divorce lawyer in slightly more than two years.

The Boston Celtics rescinded the trade that sent Danny Fortson to the Toronto Raptors, saying point guard Alvin Williams failed his physical. Celtics spokesman Jeff Twiss said yesterday he does not know why Williams failed the physical. General manager Chris Wallace did not return a call. Fortson, who has been stuck behind Antoine Walker in the Celtics' lineup, was traded to Toronto on Wednesday for Williams and Sean Marks. Raptors general manager Glen Grunwald acknowledged Williams has had minor knee problems and had arthroscopic surgery after Toronto acquired him from Portland two years ago. "But it has never affected his ability to play," he said.

Philadelphia may have a new claim to shame. A new list titled " 15 Ways Professional Athletes Go Broke " cites four players quite familiar to Philadelphia fans. Three were prominent performers here, and one still is. Though maybe not for long. Two were even teammates. You can probably guess the names chosen by Business Insider's Tony Manfred for Yahoo.com. No. 1 on the list is Allen Iverson , the former all-star guard for the 76ers. "Iverson - who earned $154 million in salary - found out the hard way what happens when you keep living the good life after the paychecks stop rolling in," Manfred says.

Last summer, after his Miami Heat fell short in the Eastern Conference finals, Pat Riley said he wanted to be more involved in his team's day-to-day operations. And when Stan Van Gundy suddenly resigned as head coach in December, the 61-year-old Riley took over behind the bench, amid speculation that he had muscled Van Gundy out of the way. But in the end, Riley was right on both counts. The Heat needed better players, and they probably needed a push to get over the top. He gave them both, and it paid off last night with the franchise's first NBA title, a 95-92 victory over the Dallas Mavericks at AmericanAirlines Center.

The NBA Finals did not begin with the high-powered offensive show many expected from two of the league's best-scoring teams. But the Dallas Mavericks did a little more in the fourth quarter last night and pulled away from the Miami Heat late for a 90-80 victory in Game 1 of this best-of seven series. On a rare off night from Mavericks all-star forward Dirk Nowitzki (16 points on 4-of-14 shooting from the floor), it was Dallas guard Jason Terry who was the catalyst, scoring 12 of his game-high 32 points in the fourth quarter.

The 76ers auditioned last night before their first sellout crowd of the season at the Wachovia Center, and may have impressed the 20,652 in attendance enough to return with their rally from a 20-point deficit against the Miami Heat. But the bottom line is winning, and the Sixers came up short in that area. With Dwyane Wade scoring 32 points and Antoine Walker hitting two killer three-pointers down the stretch, the Heat defeated the Sixers, 112-105, in a matchup of Eastern Conference division leaders.
