MIAMI, Nov. 12 (UPI) -- Elton Brand had 25 points and 20 rebounds and Andre Miller collected 22 points and eight assists Tuesday night as the Los Angeles Clippers went on a furious tear bridging the final two quarters and defeated the Miami Heat, 101-82.
Miami led, 65-57, after Anthony Carter made an 18-foot jumper with 3:45 to go in the third quarter. But the Clippers scored 24 of the game's next 25 points, opening an 81-66 advantage on a jump hook by Michael Olowokandi with nine minutes to play.
The Heat got no closer than 10 points thereafter.
Olowokandi and Corey Maggette scored 19 points apiece and Eric Piatkowski added 13 for the Clippers, whose bench was outscored by the Heat's reserves, 30-3. The sole bench points for Los Angeles came on a 3-pointer by local product Keyon Dooling with 3:56 remaining.
Clippers sixth man Quentin Richardson was placed on the injured list before the game with a bruised right knee.
