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.

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.

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 - 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.

LeBRON JAMES had to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers. When he became a free agent at the end of the 2013-14 season, he could have re-upped with the Miami Heat, made as much money as possible under the NBA's collective bargaining agreement and likely won several more titles with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh as his wingmen. James, who is out for 2 weeks with knee and back strains and will miss tonight's game against the Sixers at the Wells Fargo Center, could have gone to New York as the conquering hero who would finally bring championship glory to the Knicks after 4 decades, or he could have helped Kobe Bryant win one more title in Los Angeles while taking the Lakers into another era of greatness.

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.

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.

MIAMI -  In a lot of ways, the current crop of both the 76ers and the Miami Heat are very similar. Both sets of players are trying to learn one another after a bevy of moves and some recent injuries have changed their rosters. The big difference, of course, is that the Sixers are looking ahead to the distant future, while the Heat is trying to look ahead to a possible playoff spot this season. Miami handed the Sixers their 10th consecutive road loss last night, using a huge third quarter to break open a close game and grab a 119-108 win in improving to 24-31.

IN ALL THE dealings, manipulations and exchanges of bodies yesterday, the Sixers came away with center JaVale McGee, point guard Isaiah Canaan, a second-round pick and two protected first-round picks. Protected is another word for conditional, which is another word for confusion. Of the four first-round picks the Sixers could own in the 2015 NBA draft, three have the word "protected" adjoined. We'll go pick by pick. * The Miami pick: The Sixers acquired the pick on Aug. 23, 2014, from Cleveland in the Thaddeus Young deal with Minnesota.

MIAMI - Remember how the 76ers were a national joke after losing to the Dallas Mavericks by 53 points on November 13? Well, no one is laughing now. Especially not the Orlando Magic or the Miami Heat, the squads the Sixers (4-23) recently defeated to post their first back-to-back wins of the season. They held the Magic to 88 points on Sunday at the Amway Center before limiting the Heat to 87 points Tuesday. The Sixers squad that once looked allergic to defense has been locking down foes.

MIAMI - No one outside the 76ers locker room expected this. Heck, probably some inside the room didn't expect this, either. How could they? The Sixers dressed only eight players Tuesday night for their game against the Miami Heat at AmericanAirlines Arena. But they exited South Florida with a 91-87 victory. The win enabled the Sixers (4-23) to win consecutive games for the first time since they ended last season with wins over the Boston Celtics and Heat. This win "just backs up and confirms the things that we've been saying for a while," Sixers coach Brett Brown said.

ORLANDO - Brett Brown said the fact that all three of the 76ers' wins have come on the road is coincidence. He might have a point. All three of those victories came against struggling teams. They are teams - the Orlando Magic (10-20), Detroit Pistons (5-23) and Minnesota Timberwolves (5-21) - with a combined 20-64 record. Yet the Sixers (3-23) did possess an unrelenting vibe in those games that has been missing in their 14 home losses. "I'm not sure what it is," Michael Carter-Williams said.

The 12 years that Brett Brown spent with the San Antonio Spurs form so much of his frame of reference as an NBA coach that it's a challenge for him to see Nerlens Noel for what he finally is: a functioning pro basketball player. When Brown joined them in 1998 and, after two years in Australia, rejoined them in 2002, the Spurs were already fully formed into the league's model for basketball operation, rising into an elite franchise and remaining there ever since. They had Tim Duncan and David Robinson.

The 76ers home opener had everything - except a victory. The Miami Heat held off the Sixers, 114-96, Saturday at the Wells Fargo Center. The loss dropped them to 0-3 for the first time since opening with four consecutive losses in the 2010-11 campaign. But they did give the four-time defending Eastern Conference champion Heat (2-0) a stiffer game than expected. There were 15 lead changes and 16 ties before the Heat pulled away in the fourth quarter. And just as in the Sixers' previous two games, the fourth-quarter shortcomings were self-inflicted.
