Bullets preview

November 20, 1990|By Milton Kent


* WHEN: Tonight, 7:35.

* WHERE: Capital Centre.


* OUTLOOK: After Friday's heartbreaking loss to Philadelphia and Saturday's drubbing by Boston, Sacramento (0-7) looks made to order for the Bullets (2-6). The Kings are the NBA's last winless team, and for a very good reason: They don't score. They average 86.4 points per game, a full 11 points below the next lowest team, Orlando, and 52 points (that's right, 52) behind Denver, the most offensive team in the league. Wayman Tisdale (22.6 points, nine rebounds) leads a roster that has five rookies, four of whom were first-round draft choices last year.

Despite being held to 11 points Saturday night, Bernard King is second in the league in scoring at a 30-point clip, placing him just behind Chris Mullin of Golden State. Tonight's game should be of particular interest for Bullets center Pervis Ellison, who was dealt from Sacramento after the season in a blockbuster three-team trade that sent Jeff Malone to Utah. The Jazz, in turn, sent Eric Leckner and Bobby Hansen to Sacramento.
