CHICAGO -- As he emerged from the Chicago Bulls' huddle, walking onto the United Center court with a swagger, Michael Jordan knew it was his moment. Who else do you call a play for with the game tied and just over four seconds left -- Luc Longley?Jordan started the final sequence under his own basket, somehow pulling free from the two-handed waist-grip applied by Atlanta Hawks guard Steve Smith. Taking the inbounds pass at the top of the key, Jordan dribbled twice to his right in a move that put Smith and forward Chucky Brown -- running to double team Jordan -- on a collision course.

There were no chants of "Boooooooooooth," as there used to be at Cole Field House when he was playing basketball for Maryland. But Keith Booth, the former Terps star turned assistant coach, got his share of attention at Ravens camp in Westminster yesterday. And most of it had to do with the commitment the Terps just received from St. Frances star Sean Mosley, the latest Baltimore player to announce he was headed to College Park. "As a young player growing up in Baltimore, having the opportunity to play at the University of Maryland and come back as a coach, it's really good to walk around and be recognized for things that you've accomplished.

WASHINGTON - The wait lasted eight years, seven coaches and countless players, including one who many considered the greatest ever to put on an NBA uniform. The Washington Wizards finally accomplished this season what they couldn't do with Michael Jordan or anyone else in that span. They made the playoffs. By virtue of a nationally televised 93-82 victory over the Chicago Bulls last night at MCI Center and Indiana's win over New Jersey, the Wizards will play in the postseason for the first time since the 1996-97 season when the then-Bullets lost to Jordan's Bulls in a three-game opening-round sweep.

THOUGH YOUR summer tan may be fading, think of it this way: By the time the NBA season ends, you could be working on a new one. Network television coverage of the regular season begins with a TNT doubleheader Tuesday, starting at 8 p.m. (Houston Rockets-Detroit Pistons, followed by Denver Nuggets-Los Angeles Lakers) and then an ESPN doubleheader Wednesday, also starting at 8 p.m. (Miami Heat-New Jersey Nets, followed by the Lakers-Utah Jazz). Joining ESPN this season is an old favorite, analyst Steve "Snapper" Jones.

Until Monday night, the only air of joy that surrounded the Orlando Magic revolved around the March wedding of Croatian guard Gordan Giricek and the pending birth of his first child. But then the Magic came up with another reason to smoke cigars and pop champagne corks: the end of a 19-game losing streak, as Orlando knocked off the Phoenix Suns at home, 105-98. "You know for the first time in a long time, we have a very happy locker room," coach Johnny Davis said. "And for the first time in a long time, I can actually smile for a change.

CHICAGO - There was 13 years' worth of pent-up emotion waiting for Michael Jordan at the United Center last night, and he really didn't want any of it. In what is presumed to be the last game that he will play in the city he put on the basketball map, Jordan reluctantly accepted a four-minute pre-game ovation before grabbing a microphone and, in a sense, asking the crowd to stop and let him play one final time. Given how poorly he and the Washington Wizards played, Jordan perhaps should have let the crowd keep cheering, to forestall the 104-97 loss the Chicago Bulls hung on him - the first time Chicago has beaten Jordan since he returned to the NBA last season.

CHICAGO -- In the box score of the Washington Wizards' 107-82 rout of the Chicago Bulls last night, Michael Jordan was credited with five assists, but his biggest assist of the evening had nothing to do with the game. Jordan's ability to dominate attention once again assisted the Wizards' young forward, Kwame Brown, allowing him to draw a bead on personal rival Tyson Chandler rather than entertain the media. And, focused on Chandler , Brown came through with a strong performance by tying a career high with 20 points, as well as grabbing 14 rebounds.

DENVER -- Flashbulbs popped, teen-aged girls screamed and there was a measurable buzz around the Pepsi Center last night, which could only mean one thing: Michael Jordan is back. Jordan made his return here last night after 12 games on the injured list with torn cartilage in his right knee, just in time to take part in the Washington Wizards' 107-75 pasting of the Denver Nuggets. Jordan, who had arthroscopic surgery on the knee on Feb. 27, played 16 minutes and chipped in seven points -- the third time this season he has failed to score in double figures -- as he looked to be more in the mode of getting accustomed to playing again than taking over.

He has endured the longest losing streak and some of the worst shooting performances of his legendary career. He has battled a persistent case of tendinitis in his knees, as well as in his right wrist. He has watched some of his teammates on the Washington Wizards play as if they were members of the Washington Generals. He has also had moments when he looked like, well, Michael Jordan. The game he haunted the Utah Jazz and Bryon Russell by scoring 44 points. The quarter he shut down Paul Pierce of the Boston Celtics.
