MIAMI Keyon Dooling forced a second overtime with a running layup, and the Miami Heat took advantage by scoring the first seven points of the extra session in a 112-110 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday night.
Shaquille O'Neal had his third straight double-double, finishing with 19 points and 18 rebounds for Miami, which snapped a two-game losing streak in dramatic fashion.
When Michael Redd hit a jumper with 11.7 seconds left, the Bucks were up four points and seemingly poised to win their fourth straight.
After Eddie Jones scored to cut the lead to 105-103, Keith Van Horn dropped a pass and knocked the ball out of bounds with 5.7 seconds left. Dooling took the inbounds pass, raced the length of the floor and dropped in a layup with 1.4 seconds left to tie it.
Van Horn who scored eight of his 26 points in the first overtime was short on a straightaway 3-pointer with one second left in the game.

PHILADELPHIA Allen Iverson had 29 points and 12 assists, and Marc Jackson added 13 points to lead Philadelphia past Orlando.
The Sixers have won the first three games on a season-high five-game homestand, though this was the first one they wrapped up in regulation.
Iverson had five assists in the third quarter, including two straight on baskets to Jackson and Andre Iguodala that snapped a tie game and led a decisive 17-9 run.
