Riley riled after Bulls beat Heat
By MIKE NADEL
AP Sports Writer
CHICAGO (AP) — Pat Riley is appealing to NBA referees' sense of fairness, asking them to start treating his Miami playets — especially Alonzo Mourning — with the same level of respect they give the Chicago Bulls.
“This whole thing should be about equality,’’ the Heat coach says, “even though it’s not’’
The Bulls aren’t buying it ’That’s Pat’s gamesmanship, and he’s good at that," coach Phil Jackson said Saturday, a day after Chicago opened the playoffs with a 102-85 victory over the Heat “I won’t enter into that.’’
Bulls center Luc Longley, who helped get Mourning in foul trouble Friday, said “it’s a shame’* Riley feels the need to lobby for more agreeable officiating.
“I hope it’s not responded to. It wouldn't be setting a good example," Longley said, “ft’s a little bit like letting the dog in die house because he’s barking on the back porch.”
Like Mourning, Longley fouled out of the game. Unlike Mourning, Longley is not his team’s best player. So when foul trouble limited Mourning to IO points and two rebounds in 21 minutes, the Heat was in trouble.

Memorial Coliseum — site of of Olympic games in 1932 and 1984 — and handed the torch to Gina Tillman. Her grandfather, Jesse Owens, won four gold medals at the 1936 Berlin Olympics.
