Shaquille O'Neal had 33 points, and the Miami Heat rode an 18-2 second-half surge last night to a seventh straight victory, 107-90, over the Minnesota Timberwolves. O'Neal added 13 rebounds, was 10-for-18 from the floor and - most surprising, considering he was a 46.2 percent foul shooter coming into the game - shot 13-for-18 from the line. Dwyane Wade added 20 points for Miami, which won its 11th straight at home. Kevin Garnett had 22 points and 19 rebounds for the Timberwolves.

Manute Bol scored his first basket of the season Sunday night - and even helped make a bit of NBA history - as the Miami Heat won their first game in eight. Yesterday, however, the Heat released the 7-foot-7 African, who had made a remarkable journey from his native Sudan to become a center in the NBA. Bol, very popular during his three seasons with the 76ers (1990-91 through 1992-93), was released so that forward Willie Burton, who had missed 18 games with a stress fracture of the right heel, could return to the Heat's active roster.

MIAMI - Ray Allen, the NBA record holder for three- point goals, told the Miami Heat he intends to accept their contract offer and leave Boston after five seasons. Allen made the move Friday night, even though the Celtics could pay him about twice as much as Miami will be able to next season. Miami could offer Allen only the mini mid-level, worth about $3 million a year. Allen, 37, cannot officially sign until Wednesday. Miami wanted Allen because of its ongoing quest to keep surrounding its superstar core of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh with shooters who extend defenses and therefore create room around the basket for the big three to attack.

MIAMI - If LeBron James played for the San Antonio Spurs, Gregg Popovich might have a message for him. It's the same one he's occasionally delivered to Tim Duncan. Selfless play is great. Moving the ball to open teammates is usually the right idea. That belief has carried the Spurs to four NBA titles. Sometimes, though, it's best if the superstar takes on more himself. "I've talked to players before about being more aggressive," Popovich said Friday, after the Spurs practiced following their 92-88 victory over the Miami Heat in Game 1. "Opportunities might be there that they didn't take advantage of. That happens with Timmy now and then.

Even a supreme scoring effort by Dwyane Wade wasn't enough for the Miami Heat to beat the visiting Orlando Magic. Dwight Howard had 29 points and 20 rebounds, Hedo Turkoglu capped his 22-point night by hitting a huge three-pointer with 11 seconds left, and the Magic survived some late-game Miami heroics to beat the Heat, 121-114, last night. Wade matched a career high with 48 points, 20 of them coming in the fourth quarter and all of them in regulation for Miami, which fell to 8-22.
