Cavaliers@Celtics 8 p.m. [TNT] The defending NBA champions tip off the season with a rematch against their conference semifinal opponent last season. (It was Boston that won the title, remember? Or have you wiped the 2008 NBA Finals from your memory?) But between Anderson Varejao (right) and Ben Wallace, Cleveland has perhaps the league's best frontcourt hair duo.

Listed in order of predicted finish NBA East Pistons 2005-06 record -- 64-18 Outlook -- Remember when they were 39-6 after two Finals appearances, got upset at having only four All-Stars and agreed they were worthy to be considered one of the best teams of all time? They then unraveled in the playoffs, turning on coach Flip Saunders for not being Larry Brown. Then the Pistons decided not to give Ben Wallace that maximum payday, refused even to increase their four-year, $48 million offer and let him go to Chicago.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. - With Michael Jordan at home, nursing a sore knee, the Washington Wizards went retro last night against the Detroit Pistons in more than one way. To a man, the Wizards pulled out those knee-high socks that were all the rage in the 1970s. However, they also harkened back to last season, when Jordan was a retired club executive and interior defense was noticeable by its absence. Chris Whitney and Hubert Davis did their best to compensate for Jordan's absence, with six three-pointers between them, but the Wizards were unable to stop Detroit's Corliss Williamson and Ben Wallace inside, and the Pistons escaped with a 97-90 win. Williamson had 22 points off the bench, while Wallace, a former Wizard, crushed Washington inside, with 14 points, 15 rebounds and five blocked shots.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - If ever there was going to be a blowup moment for Rasheed Wallace, Sunday night seemed to be it. His Detroit Pistons had been booted all over Continental Airlines Arena by the New Jersey Nets in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinals, 82-64, and it wasn't even that close. And Wallace, who spent most of the night in foul trouble, had just 10 points, missing all five three-point attempts, with just two rebounds and three turnovers in 22 minutes. With a phalanx of reporters and cameramen hovering around his locker room space, this seemed like a great time for the seemingly always-volatile Wallace to blow, but the big explosion never came.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. - One game isn't going to make all his worries disappear, but one game sure eased the strain. Ben Wallace cleared his head. Then he cleared the way for the Detroit Pistons. After wrestling with a range of off-the-court emotions the past few weeks that took a toll on his game, Wallace regained the edge that has made him the most dominating defensive player in basketball. If his performance in Game 3 of the NBA Finals is any indication, the San Antonio Spurs had best brace themselves for the onslaught tonight.

The three members of the Indiana Pacers who are among 10 people facing assault charges in Oakland County, Mich., for their part in a Nov. 19 brawl with fans at The Palace of Auburn Hills could find out today whether the length of their suspensions by NBA commissioner David Stern will be upheld. The players - three-time All-Star forward Jermaine O'Neal, forward Ron Artest and guard Stephen Jackson - are expected to meet with an arbitrator in New York. The league agreed to arbitration earlier this week after its bid for a temporary injunction was rejected in court.

LeBron James is the acknowledged No. 1 draft choice, but a kid who turned 18 Friday, six days before the NBA draft, might turn out to be every bit as valuable. The Detroit Pistons, with the second selection in tomorrow's draft, will likely take Darko Milicic, a 7-footer from Serbia and Montenegro with much potential. Coach Larry Brown is expected to ease Milicic into a front line that already includes two-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year Ben Wallace and playoff standout Tayshaun Prince.

THE MAN has taken a few too many basketballs to the temple. Surely that explains it. Larry Brown, who is widely regarded as the premier coach in the NBA, has orchestrated one of the most unnecessary and implausible breakups in modern league history. He is leaping off the assembly line, gunning the engine, divorcing the Detroit Pistons after two wildly fulfilling seasons. He wins one title and almost wins two. He wins over minds, if not always hearts, and yet it isn't enough. He wants more.

SAN ANTONIO - It was Ben Wallace, in the persistent gloom enveloping the Detroit Pistons after their devastating home loss in Game 5 of the NBA Finals, who said, "We gotta do what they did." Meaning, reach down and find enough of what they call "huevos" here in southeastern Texas to survive in a road cauldron and keep their hopes of repeating as NBA champs alive. The Pistons did last night at SBC Center what the Spurs did at the Palace of Auburn Hills. And giving them as big a helping hand as anybody - showing more of what was needed to win there than anyone on the court - was the certifiable goat of Tuesday's loss, the other Wallace, Rasheed.

ANYONE WHO HAS been paying attention lately at big-time sporting events has noticed two things about the atmosphere in various stadiums and arenas. First, the line that separates fans from the players - the boundaries neither should cross and the contract concerning behavior neither can violate - has been all but rubbed out. Second, supporters have stayed away from live events in every sport at the pro and college level, partly because of the cost and...
