Jackson's jumper sends Knicks by Heat 104-102

Mark Jackson's spinning, one-handed jumper with 1.8 seconds left Monday gave the New York Knicks a 104-102 victory over the Miami Heat.

Anthony Mason's two free throws with 58 seconds left gave the Knicks a 102-100 lead. But Grant Long's 17-footer with 10.9 seconds to go tied it.

After a timeout, Jackson took the inbounds pass and went to work against Miami's Bimbo Coles. Jackson backed to within 15 feet, spun to his left and swished the shot from the left of the key.

The Heat's Steve Smith missed from 30 feet at the buzzer.

Patrick Ewing, limited to 30 minutes because of foul trouble, scored 22 points for the Knicks. Jackson had 11 points and 11 assists. Glen Rice scored 26 points for the Heat.
