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?

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.

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.

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.

LAS VEGAS – The 76ers capped their NBA Summer League play with a win, defeating the Miami Heat, 74-66, Friday night in a consolation game at the Thomas & Mack Center. "I just wanted to finish with a win," said Simmons, the first overall pick in the last month's NBA draft. "So I came out here aggressive and I tried to take over the game. " Ben Simmons finished with 15 points, 10 rebounds, six assists, and six turnovers after missing the past two games to rest. The 6-foot-10, 243-pound point forward once again dazzled the crowd with his playmaking ability.

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.

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.

Welcome to America's newest, most entertaining reality-TV show. It's called NBA Free Agency, and it doesn't need a Kardashian, a Real Housewife, or a deserted island (unless we're talking about Brooklyn and the Nets roster) to do boffo ratings and grab the viewing public by its lapels. There's so much action and excitement, and so much of the action is meaningless mind candy. Aside from Kevin Durant's leaving the Oklahoma City Thunder to sign with the Golden State Warriors, the thrill of seeing all these players changing teams and signing gonzo contracts has little to do with how those signings will affect the balance of power among the league's 30 teams.

MIAMI - Perhaps the biggest question surrounding the 76ers is: When will Jahlil Okafor and Nerlens Noel return? "I don't really know," coach Brett Brown said of his injured post players. Okafor missed his fourth straight game Sunday as the Sixers lost, 103-98, to the Miami Heat at AmericanAirlines Arena. The rookie bruised his right shin on Feb. 28. Noel missed his second straight game with a bruised right knee. The center was hurt late in the second quarter Wednesday against the Charlotte Hornets.

MIAMI - After they lost to the Miami Heat on Friday night in Philadelphia, the 76ers got an opportunity to avenge that setback two days later in South Florida. It didn't happen. This time, the Heat disposed of the undermanned yet pesky Sixers, 103-98, at AmericanAirlines Arena. Just like in Friday's 112-102 setback, the Sixers were without Nerlens Noel, Jahlil Okafor, Nik Stauskas, and Kendall Marshall because of injuries and illness. Unlike that game, the team was competitive from the opening tip. The teams played through 12 lead changes and 12 ties before the Heat took the lead for good with 3 minutes, 52 seconds remaining.

MIAMI - The 76ers suffered their 11th straight loss Friday. Though it came without Twin Towers Nerlens Noel and Jahlil Okafor, it's probably time to get concerned as the team closes out the season. That's because there's a legitimate chance the Sixers (8-54) won't win three more games this season. On the surface that sounds insane, considering 20 games are left on the schedule. One would think it would be easy to stumble upon four wins during that season-ending stretch, no matter how bad the team is. Teams bound for the postseason have been known to rest players to reenergize for the playoffs.

THE LOOK was a little more frazzled than normal, the hair more mussed. Brett Brown met the media before Friday's contest with the Miami Heat and he looked as though he had already seen Dwyane Wade throw in 30 points (Wade scored 21 without playing the fourth quarter in a 112-102 Miami win). That is where Brown is: sometimes bordering on insanity, most times hiding it with an enormous amount of inexplicable optimism for a team that fell to 8-54 with the loss. Lately, the former seems to be outweighing the latter, and with good reason.

MIAMI - Losses by the 76ers are usually pretty mundane. A large deficit is created, the team finds a way to make it mildly interesting with a bit of a run, then loses at the end. It's enough to keep the players into it till the end, gives them reason for hope that they will eventually break the losing streak, which has now reached 14 to begin this season, 24 going back to last year. Saturday night, however, was very different. Somehow Brett Brown's team snatched defeat from the jaws of victory, getting outscored by 20-4 in the final 7 minutes, 14 seconds in the 96-91 loss to the Miami Heat.

MIAMI - It's déjà vu for the 76ers. Like in previous seasons, the losing streaks are long and painful. And, now, they're close to being historic. The Sixers are two losses away from tying the NBA consecutive-loss record that their 2013-14 team shares with the 2010-11 Cleveland Cavaliers. Their losing streak reached 24 games dating to March 27 on Saturday as they were outscored by 20-4 in the final 7 minutes, 13  seconds by the Miami Heat in a 96-91 loss at AmericanAirlines Arena.

THERE ARE two teams Brett Brown coaches during the basketball season. One is the 76ers, the other is the AAU team of his 10-year-old, Sam. No doubt, Brown rather would have been with the 10-year-olds last night instead of overseeing the Sixers' 105-101 loss to the visiting Miami Heat. Only because coaching a game in which it is beneficial for his team to lose is harder to swallow than the two seasons he's gone through here in Philly. Here's why: The Sixers needed to lose to the Heat and have Brooklyn lose to Orlando to get Miami's first-round pick, which was top-10 protected.
