NORTH BAY VILLAGE, Fla. - Investigators began examining a twisted pile of concrete, metal, and wood Friday to determine why a deck at a popular sports bar collapsed into shallow Biscayne Bay, injuring two dozen people gathered to cheer the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals. Authorities estimated that 100 people were on the deck at Shuckers Bar & Grill when a support on one end apparently gave way, causing the deck to buckle in the middle and drop about eight feet into the bay. The scene Friday was a tangle of partly submerged green plastic chairs, tables, umbrellas, and even flip-flops and cellphones lost in the chaos of the night before.

Alonzo Mourning, the fierce Miami Heat center, did not pretend to know all the details of why the 76ers suspended Allen Iverson for last night's game. But Mourning, who scored 21 points in the Heat's 92-77 victory last night, saw a larger, more critical issue. "A lot has to do with maturity and experience," he said. "He was taught better than that. We all know, based on experience, with this type of lifestyle, you're going to make mistakes. "The culmination is, you've got to sit back and say, 'What am I doing, not just to myself but my teammates?

A Heat threepeat? The Miami Heat are looking to become the first NBA team to win three straight titles since the Los Angeles Lakers from 2000-02. What's more impressive is that the Heat won last year with Dwyane Wade basically playing on one leg in the playoffs. LeBron James is dominating the league like no one since Michael Jordan was leading Chicago to six titles. James has won the league MVP title four times in the last five years. He was the MVP in the NBA Finals the last two years.

THE BIGGEST postseason comeback in Miami Heat franchise history wasn't enough in regulation. The Heat needed more - and got it, digging deep to take a 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference finals. LeBron James scored 34 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, Dwyane Wade scored 23 and the Heat rallied from 15 down to beat the Boston Celtics, 115-111, in overtime on Wednesday night. Mario Chalmers scored 22 for the Heat, who won despite an unbelievable night by Rajon Rondo. The Celtics guard played all 53 minutes and scored 44 points, dished out 10 assists and grabbed eight rebounds.

What was going on here? The 76ers, who five days ago at the Spectrum scored only 57 points in losing to the Miami Heat, reached that total late in the second quarter yesterday at the Miami Arena. Then the Sixers kept going and going, building an 11-point lead behind 13 first-half points from Jerry Stackhouse and 15 from Clarence Weatherspoon. Meanwhile, an active defense was harassing the Heat into 15 turnovers in the first 24 minutes. Amazing as it seemed, the Sixers, on the second game of a five-game road trip, were beating the Heat straight up. Beating the same Heat who had beaten Chicago on Friday.

Well, it was a nice streak while it lasted. Having won two games in a row for the first time all season, and faced with the opportunity for a third straight victory, the 76ers held up for about only one half last night before bowing to the Miami Heat, 113-90. The Sixers simply appeared to have too little talent in this one. They had no point guard to answer 6-foot-8 Steve Smith, who played like the star he was billed to be. He finished with 29 points, nine rebounds and six assists.

MIAMI - They rose as one, 13 strong, and exhaled before walking into the visitors' locker room. As the final seconds ticked off on one of the worst seasons in franchise history, the 76ers went full circle with a 100-87 victory over the shorthanded Miami Heat at AmericanAirlines Arena on Wednesday. They opened the season on Oct. 30 with a thrilling upset of the Heat at Wells Fargo Center. The Sixers (19-63) followed that up with victories over the Washington Wizards and Chicago Bulls to start the season at 3-0. Six month later, they capped the season with consecutive wins, beating the Boston Celtics on Monday and dispatching the Heat (54-28)

MIAMI - This past season, as horrific as the 19-63 record may indicate it was, will not be swept under the carpet by first-year Sixers coach Brett Brown. He will not hide from it, won't deny it and won't try to defend it. It was exactly what he expected when he signed his 4-year, guaranteed contract in August. Perhaps the win total was a little south of his expectations, but that was never the mark by which he was going to judge the season. So now that his first season is behind him after last night's 100-87 win against the Miami Heat, the excitement of moving this rebuilding project forward hasn't been dampened, but rather only heightened in the coach's eyes.

MIAMI - Halfway to a title, and LeBron James shows no sign of letting this one get away. James had 29 points and 14 rebounds, and the Miami Heat took a two-games-to-one lead in the NBA Finals with a 91-85 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday night. Dwyane Wade had 25 points, seven rebounds and seven assists for the Heat, who were in this same position through three games last year, then didn't win again against the Dallas Mavericks. James' poor performance was part of the problem then, but he seems on top of his game this time.

TWICE IN 4 DAYS recently, the 76ers played toe-to-toe with the Indiana Pacers, the team atop the Eastern Conference. It was a decided mismatch before the games started, with the Pacers looking to maintain their lead over Miami for the No. 1 seed. The Sixers, meanwhile, were getting national attention for another reason as they were setting a franchise record for consecutive losses and creeping closer to the all-time NBA record for futility. As I watched these mostly rented Sixers battle with the far more talented Pacers, I started thinking back to years not so long ago when these two franchises were in the same place.

NEW ORLEANS - So close. Michael Carter-Williams and Orlando Magic guard Victor Oladipo were one-tenth of a second from becoming the Skills Challenge champions at NBA All-Star Saturday. Utah Jazz guard Trey Burke and Portland Trail Blazer guard Damian Lillard completed the course in 45.2 seconds in the final at Smoothie King Center. Meanwhile, the 76ers point guard and Oladipo had a time of 45.3. "It was tough," Carter-Williams said of losing by a slim margin. He was asked to name some of the things he could do in one-tenth of a second.

DEFENSE. It has been the hot topic on the mind of 76ers head coach Brett Brown practically since he took over this team in August. He knew that he had no real inside presence to protect the rim, so doing that would have to be a total team effort. The plan was to protect the paint at all cost and get out on outside shooters as quickly as possible. Another problem: It became painfully obvious to Brown that he didn't have the quickest of wing players to close the gap and protect the lane to the outside shooters.

For a few seconds Friday night, a Fox Sports camera found Greg Oden on the visitors' bench at the Wells Fargo Center, framing a close-up of a facial expression that's become so common over the years. There was Oden, the league's top pick in the 2007 draft, with his head turned to the right to follow the action in the Miami Heat's 101-86 victory over the Sixers, his right hand touching his lower lip, a faraway look in his eyes. Oden's face filled the screen before the camera quickly cut back to the game, back to LeBron James and Dwyane Wade and the overmatched Sixers.

Brett Brown called it. The 76ers coach knew his squad was facing the Miami Heat at the wrong time. The two-time defending NBA champions were coming off their first three-game losing streak in two seasons. In those setbacks, Miami was uncharacteristically awful on defense. "You are getting a very talented, angry team that's going to go up many, many levels defensively," Brown said before Friday's 101-86 setback to the Heat. "And that is going to be a real test for our young team, because we lead the league in turnovers already.

Nerlens Noel continues to make big assists off the basketball court. The 76ers rookie center's latest act of kindness came this week. He treated Lexington, Ky. resident Braxton Upthegrove and his mother, Michelle, to Friday's game against the Miami Heat at the Wells Fargo Center. Braxton is awaiting his second kidney transplant. Noel, who played one season at Kentucky, unveiled his treat to Upthegrove at Bryan Station High School in Lexington. The 16-year-old, who is the manager of Henry Clay High School's basketball team, was surprised by a special video message from Noel during halftime of a high school basketball.

The Miami Heat will stumble into the Wells Fargo Center, losers of three consecutive games. They'll be without well-liked reserve center Joel Anthony, who was traded Wednesday to the Boston Celtics. And in that night's game - 114-97 loss at the Washington Wizards - the Heat appeared sluggish and disinterested. Perfect time to face Miami, right? "If you had your choice, you would not choose to play them after they lost three in a row. Why does that make any sense?" said Sixers coach Brett Brown, whose team hosts the two-time defending NBA champions Friday night.
