GREENBURGH, N.Y. (AP) - Tim Hardaway Jr. was sitting across from the Miami bench to watch one of toughest blows in Heat history.
Allan Houston's go-ahead shot in the deciding Game 5 of a 1999 first-round series is one of the lasting highlights of the fierce playoff rivalry the New York Knicks had with the Heat in the late 1990s. Hardaway's father starred for Miami, works for the Heat now, and on Friday both got a reminder of that shot again.
A picture of it hangs in Hardaway Jr.'s new basketball home.
The Knicks took him with the No. 24 pick in the NBA draft, and his father couldn't be prouder.
The elder Hardaway says, ``The years that I played and the rivalry that we had, now it's coming full circle. My son is going to play for the Knicks. I'm very happy for him.''
