WASHINGTON -- For almost 3 1/2 quarters last night, the young Toronto Raptors ran circles around the Washington Wizards, leading by as many as 14 points. But on the verge of starting the season with two losses, the Wizards' veterans stepped up their games.Mitch Richmond, shaking off a dismal debut as a Wizard on Friday night, scored 26 points and made several key defensive stops down the stretch. Rod Strickland recorded a double double with 16 points and 11 assists. And Calbert Cheaney hit the game-winning shot, a 22-foot jumper with 11 seconds left that gave the Wizards a 98-97 victory in their home opener.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- He was just hitting his stride, scoring career highs in back-to-back games. But yesterday Washington Bullets guard Calbert Cheaney became another casualty, joining a growing list of injured teammates.Cheaney was injured late in the second quarter yesterday against the New Jersey Nets after a drive to the basket left him sprawled on the ground, clutching his left foot. By game's end, the rookie was on crutches, and the Bullets were in need of a shooting guard after a 122-101 loss before a sellout of 20,049 at the Meadowlands Arena.

LANDOVER -- It was draft day 1993 and the Washington Bullets wanted Isaiah Rider. Badly. But the Minnesota Timberwolves grabbed Rider with the fifth pick, and the Bullets, choosing sixth, settled for Calbert Cheaney.Last night Cheaney showed the fans why he was perhaps the right choice, scoring a career-high 30 points and sparking a late rally in Washington's 109-105 win before 8,206 at the USAir Arena.Eight of Cheaney's points came in a 2:36 span in the fourth quarter, helping increase a two-point lead to 98-90 with 3:02 left.

Washington Bullets guard Calbert Cheaney will miss about three weeks after suffering a partial tear of the planter fascia tendon in his left heel during Sunday's game against the New Jersey Nets.With Cheaney out, the Bullets signed 7-foot-6 center Manute Bol, a 1985 draft pick of the team. Bol, signed to a 10-day contract, was released by the Miami Heat on Jan. 25 and was in uniform last night against his former team.Cheaney, who had career highs in points in each of the two games before his injury, said he heard something pop as he drove for a layup Sunday.

ST. LOUIS -- Indiana forward Calbert Cheaney went back to Bloomington last night with a scrapbook of memories from his storied career as a Hoosier, and with the Most Outstanding Player Award from this year's NCAA Midwest Regional.But Cheaney probably would trade everything for something he never got in the past four years: a national championship. Cheaney was denied the opportunity when top-ranked, top-seeded Indiana lost to second-seeded Kansas last night, 83-77, at the St. Louis Arena."Everybody dreams when you go to a major college of winning it one day," said Cheaney, who finished as the all-time leading scorer in Indiana and Big Ten history.

There are nights when Washington Bullets swingman Calbert Cheaney looks as if he can do no wrong.Last month against the Golden State Warriors, for example, Cheaney's left-handed jumper looked as smooth as it did two years ago when he was the consensus national player of the year at Indiana. He also was explosive going to the basket, scoring a career-high 32 points."Sometimes you get games," Cheaney said at the time, trying to pull a positive out of what had been a Bullets loss, "where everything feels good."

PHILADELPHIA -- When the game finally came to an end, Washington Bullets forward Juwan Howard smiled like he hadn't smiled all season. He ran to center court and bumped chests with Calbert Cheaney, the man who saved the Bullets from a great deal of embarrassment last night.Cheaney's baseline jumper with 19 seconds left -- from almost the identical spot that he won a game against Phoenix on Jan. 8 -- helped the Bullets beat the Philadelphia 76ers, 107-106, last night before 13,063 at the CoreStates Center.

LANDOVER -- The Washington Bullets blew a 17-point lead before hanging on to beat the Los Angeles Clippers last month. So when they built an 18-point lead over the Clippers in the third quarter last night, one thought surely the Bullets would put them away this time.But once again, the Bullets found themselves giving up a big lead. And again the Bullets escaped, this time with a 102-98 win before 14,040 at USAir Arena.The Bullets' third straight win pushed them to three games over .500 for the first time this year (18-15)

Less than two weeks ago, Calbert Cheaney found his space invaded by dozens of microphones and television cameras after a Washington Bullets loss. It wasn't necessarily Cheaney's fault that the Bullets lost to the Charlotte Hornets that night, but the starting shooting guards' point totals stood out: Glen Rice, 38; Cheaney, zero."

In Indiana, he's a legend. Around the NBA, he has name recognition; he's fourth among forwards in the latest All-Star voting, ahead of Dominique Wilkins, Larry Johnson and Horace Grant. They even gave away a life-sized poster of him at a recent Washington Bullets game, which isn't bad for a guy averaging 8.6 points.Now, Calbert Cheaney gets to show if he can play.Rex Chapman's gone, and so are his 18.0 points a game -- atleast for 10 weeks, and possibly for the season -- after the shooting guard went down with a dislocated right ankle in Monday's game against the San Antonio Spurs.

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- The list includes Scott May, Steve Alford, Mike Woodson and Randy Wittman. You know them as high-scoring Indiana All-Americans. The NBA knows them as underachievers, disappointments and flat-out busts.The Washington Bullets pray Calbert Cheaney doesn't add his name to the list. Washington shocked more than a few people by investing $18 million over six years in Cheaney, its No. 1 pick. The Bullets' commitment was obvious when they sent Harvey Grant to Portland before the draft to make room for Cheaney.

PHOENIX -- For the Washington Bullets, the odds facing them proved too much to overcome. Chris Webber, the team's best player this season, was on the bench after fouling out. And Calbert Cheaney wasn't even on the bench, having left with an injury in the first quarter.Not exactly the way the Bullets wanted to face ending a 16-game losing streak to the Phoenix Suns that has spanned over eight years. And those odds were simply too much to overcome as the Suns pulled out a 114-107 win, ending Washington's' four-game winning streak.
