SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. -- The first half of the season is a distant blur for Washington Bullets forward Harvey Grant. Asked about the mood of a team that at the All-Star break was three games under .500, Grant's eyes nearly rolled in the back of his head."

CLEVELAND -- Washington Bullets forward Chris Webber paused when asked what it meant to have his team's playoff chances come down to the last game. Not having been in the situation before, he didn't immediately know what to say."It feels good," Webber said. "The pressure is very good. This is where great players are made, or where players become better. I believe we can do it. I believe in our team."Belief will not be good enough today, not for a Bullets team that has believed it was destined for the playoffs since 1994, when it acquired Webber and drafted Juwan Howard.

When training camp started for the Miami Heat two months ago, a pall of uncertainty hung in the air. The Heat had set aside millions to go shopping during the summer's free-agent market to become a contending team and hooked Juwan Howard -- only to see the deal vetoed by the NBA."Having Juwan Howard would have made us a great team," Miami's Kurt Thomas said when camp started. "Now we might not be as good as people think."But many have been forced to eat their words, including Thomas. The Heat is actually better than anyone could have expected, with Miami taking a franchise-record nine-game winning streak into tonight's game against the New York Knicks.
