Just looking at Sean Elliott's feathery jump shot, you wouldn't know that he hasn't played competitive basketball in nearly nine months. The ball spins gently off the fingertips, rotating softly through the air before landing in the basket, barely touching anything but the bottom of the net. Just looking at Elliott's smooth face, you couldn't guess what the San Antonio Spurs forward has endured since helping his team win the NBA championship last season....

Now, for our eagerly awaited NBA Decade Awards, or at least they might be eagerly awaited if they came around more often than once in 10 years. Of course, the most glamorous award goes to the Team of the Decade, so here goes: Tie: Lakers and Spurs. History isn't remembered by decades but eras, which might not fit neatly into decades. The Lakers' 4-3 edge in titles over the Spurs this decade hardly demonstrates that they ruled, since it's 4-4 over 11 years counting the Spurs' title in 1999.

The 6-foot-9 forward, who has been out for more than a year because of knee surgery and a prolonged battle with his waistline, has been cleared to play, but coach Wes Unseld says he will use him only sparingly. He will need all of his big men tonight against the Spurs (32-13)

If last season was about proving they belonged in the playoffs for the Washington Wizards, this season is about showing they can compete with the NBA's elite. If last season was about becoming an All-Star for Gilbert Arenas, this season is about moving up a notch among the top guards. The Wizards and Arenas accomplished that, at least last night. Catching the league's reigning champions at the end of a long road trip, the Wizards matched the San Antonio Spurs in the first half, pulled away toward the end of the third quarter and blew out the Spurs, 110-95, before a raucous sellout crowd of 20,173 at MCI Center.

Robert Horry knows something about what it takes to win an NBA championship. In his 13 years in the league, Horry has been part of six teams and three different franchises that have finished the season popping champagne corks and, a few months later, putting on the diamond-laden rings that go to the world champions. No current NBA player has more championship bling than "Big Shot Bob." Now in his third year with the reigning champion San Antonio Spurs, Horry also knows what's coming next.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. - It could have ended for the San Antonio Spurs after five minutes. Not necessarily the NBA Finals, not with a chance for two more games at home to win the championship. But any chance of them blotting out the description that haunted them, the one that had chased them for a week at the Palace of Auburn Hills, was trickling away only five minutes into Game 5. The Spurs' 4-0 start already was a distant memory. They had fallen behind 13-6 in the blink of an eye, the Palace was throbbing with energy and noise.

SAN ANTONIO - The Detroit Pistons like to wear the pro wrestling-like championship belts that teammate Rasheed Wallace made for them after they won the NBA championship last season. But the crown that has rested on their heads last year is slipping after the San Antonio Spurs took a 2-0 lead in the NBA Finals with a 97-76 victory last night. Only two teams have recovered from a 2-0 deficit in the Finals to win the NBA championship. The next three games will be played in Detroit starting tomorrow night.

SAN ANTONIO -- Manu Ginobili plays basketball like he is riding a bull in the rodeo. It may look like chaos, but there is poetry in that motion. On the San Antonio Spurs, a team known for its disciplined style, whose best player is expressionless, whose coach is a former military man, Ginobili is the oddball, always ready to cross the line. In a league filled with silky-smooth players, he has an unorthodox, sandpaper style. He doesn't flow. He flails. "There are times when everyone in the gym thinks he is out of control, except him," teammate Brent Barry said.

WASHINGTON - The Washington Wizards have improved in many ways this season. They lead the NBA in comeback wins from double-digit deficits. They've already exceeded their total in overall victories from last season and in All-Star selections for the past 18 years. The Wizards might also have the best timing of any team in the league. For the fourth time this season, the Wizards took advantage of a key player's absence - in this case reigning MVP Tim Duncan of the San Antonio Spurs - and continued their incredible turnaround.

SAN ANTONIO - The San Antonio Spurs had developed a nasty habit of letting teams linger around in playoff series, and it looked last night as though they would let the New Jersey Nets force a seventh game in the NBA Finals. However, power forward Tim Duncan and center David Robinson decided they had had enough, putting the Spurs on their backs one last time to power a withering 19-0 fourth-quarter run that won Game 6 of the series, 88-77, and the NBA championship as well. Not only did Duncan notch his 14th straight double double - marking the 22nd time in 24 playoff games this season that he had posted double figures in two categories - but his finishing line, 21 points, 20 rebounds, 10 assists and eight blocked shots, made for one of the greatest individual performances in championship series history.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Don't look now, but the San Antonio Spurs may be on the verge of something unfamiliar in this postseason: doing something easy. Heading home for tonight's Game 6 of the NBA Finals and leading 3-2, the Spurs have a chance to put away the New Jersey Nets and win their second championship in five seasons. Sounds simple, right? Well, the Spurs have done nothing the easy way throughout the playoffs, and beating the Nets tonight at the SBC Center isn't likely to be simple either.
