Walker, Heat down Magic in preseason contest

Oct 25, 2006 - 2:03 AM ORLANDO, Florida (Ticker) -- Antoine Walker helped the Miami Heat overcome a dismal first quarter.

Mourning made 4-of-7 shots and 6-of-10 free throws, grabbing six rebounds. Rookie Vincent Grier netted 11 points and grabbed eight boards for the Heat, who shot 45 percent (27-of-60).
