NEW YORK -- When Allan Houston arrived in New York three years ago, his reception wasn't exactly warm. Reggie Miller was considered the top shooting guard available among the free agents, and Houston -- though obviously a gifted player -- was considered too low-key. Too nice. Too soft."I didn't worry about my personality in contrast with this city," Houston said yesterday, reflecting on his arrival in summer 1996. "I just wanted to continue to be the type of person that I was and continue to work hard.

NEW YORK - A little more than six minutes into the New York Knicks' best half of the season, Latrell Sprewell threw a crossover dribble at Jalen Rose, drove past the defensive statue that is Rik Smits, and flushed a tomahawk dunk. Broken foot? Yeah, right. Less than five minutes later and less than a half- minute after entering the game, Marcus Camby closed in on Rose, launched himself high into the air, and swatted away Rose's shot, drawing a foul only because he got Rose with his body.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Chuck Lightening did his job on one end of the court. He curtailed the scoring of Tennessee All-America candidate Allan Houston.But Lightening and Towson State paid a price for stopping Houston, said Tigers coach Terry Truax.Towson lost to Tennessee, 77-70, last night, as Lightening scored just six points, 12 points under his season average. The 6-foot-5 senior made two of 11 shots from the field and was little help to teammate Terrance Jacobs, who tied his career high with 29 points.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- Going into last night, the Washington Bullets were the best shooting team, and facing a Detroit Pistons team that had allowed the second fewest points.Obviously, something had to give.Looking to sweep the three-game series with the Pistons this season, the Bullets instead could get nothing going offensively for the better part of three quarters on the way to a 90-82 loss at the Palace.At one point in the third quarter, the Bullets trailed by 28 points, and only made the final score respectable with an impressive fourth-quarter run.

After having surgery on his shattered right wrist Monday, New York Knicks center Patrick Ewing reportedly told teammate John Starks that he would be back in time for the playoffs. Of course, we all know about Ewing and his predictions.Unfortunately for Ewing, the injury that occurred against the Milwaukee Bucks on Dec. 20 could be career-threatening because the ligaments in his wrist were shredded. And that would be the end of the Knicks as we know them -- a highly competitive but inconsistent group that seemingly everyone loved to hate.
