CHICAGO -- The Chicago Bulls' Michael Jordan received a telephoned death threat before last night's game against the Washington Bullets and was shadowed by a half-dozen plainclothes policemen throughout the night. They escorted him and his family into and out of Chicago Stadium. The call was placed to the Bulls' office."You can't ignore it," Jordan said after the game, "but I'm not going to let it bother me. I've got a job to do and I came to do it. Right now, I'll just go home and relax.

The Bulls came through with their most balanced effort of the playoffs and out-hustled the Knicks in a 93-79 win before 18,676 at Chicago Stadium last night.So after a series of pushing, shoving, clawing, after six games decided by clutch shots and controversial calls, it all comes down to Game 7 tomorrow at Madison Square Garden to see xTC which team will face the Indiana Pacers in the Eastern Conference finals.

CHICAGO -- Michael had a cigar in his mouth. Perfect. He was blowing cigar smoke in this face and that action-cam, as happy as any youngster, his head spinning like a top, trying to blow smoke on everybody, just riding the wave of joy. Remember Larry and Kevin a decade ago in Houston? Different cigar, but same look. Perfect."MICHAEL!" a chubby man shouted. "Mexico wants you. Mexican TV wants to hear what you say. Mexico, Michael. MEXICO!"It was a mob in Chicago Stadium. Every video-cam of every Chicago station already had had him, networks, too, and now Michael was trying to get back to his dressing room.

CHICAGO -- "Remember the Roar" is the the Chicago Blackhawks' slogan in their final season at historic Chicago Stadium. The Washington Capitals, who had lost their past six games here dating back to 1988, had done their share to keep the "Madhouse on Madison Street" roaring.But the Capitals said goodbye to a silent stadium last night, quieting a sellout crowd of 17,569 with three first-period goals and handing the Blackhawks a 6-3 defeat."Chicago Stadium . . . you grow up watching it on 'Hockey Night' and dreaming you'll play there," said goaltender Byron Dafoe, who notched his first NHL victory.

LOS ANGELES -- On the day after his latest, greatest offensive show, Michael Jordan spent a good deal of his time on the defensive.Less than 24 hours earlier, he had led the Chicago Bulls to a 107-86 thrashing of the Los Angeles Lakers at the Chicago Stadium, evening the NBA Finals at one game apiece. Now, it was Thursday afternoon, and Jordan sat in a folding chair at the Forum, defending himself against a charge by Byron Scott that he had taunted the Lakers once Chicago's victory became inevitable.

CHICAGO -- Construction is well under way on a new Chicago Stadium across from the Blackhawks' historic and raucous home on 1800 West Madison St., and that can only be good news for the Washington Capitals and the rest of the NHL.The Caps' 6-2 loss last night was their sixth straight at the stadium. All-Star goalie Ed Belfour, in a 37-save performance, and a handful of defensive miscues were the responsible culprits."They might want to delay construction for the next couple of years," Capitals coach Terry Murray said of the Blackhawks, who are 14-3-4 at home with Belfour in goal.

CHICAGO -- Marshmallows and cream puffs seem a million years ago.It's fists and forearms now.The Eastern Conference finals have degenerated into a battle no one expected between two teams better known for their basketball than for their imitation of the World Wrestling Federation.Yet here we are, and if the Cavaliers can come back from the 3-2 deficit they face as a result of last night's 112-89 drubbing in Chicago Stadium something beautiful can come from something ugly.And that's what it was -- ugly.

DETROIT -- Pardon me for a moment while I put my world in perspective.In the six years I have been sending my newspaper dispatches from the outposts of the National Hockey League, I've been told numerous times: "You have the best job in the world." I nod with a smile and say, "I know. And you can't have it."I wouldn't trade jobs with anybody in the world. Until now. Because there's a kid on a boat in the Persian Gulf who must be wondering about the fatherly advice he got a few years ago when he was encouraged to join the service, see the world, have some fun and try to figure out what he wants to do with his life.

CHICAGO -- It appeared, at least briefly, that the streak was over. With less than two minutes to play, the Washington Bullets had a six-point lead at Chicago Stadium -- and Michael Jordan, though in attendance, wasn't about to bail out the Bulls from his seat in the stands.But on this night, late contributions from Scottie Pippen anSteve Kerr were more than adequate. Pippen scored five straight points to pull Chicago within one, and Kerr's three-pointer with 23.2 seconds left gave the Bulls an 84-83 win last night before a sellout crowd of 17,853.

What, is it a big surprise to NBC and its commentators that sometimes the best man in a boxing match isn't always declared the winner?After gold-medal favorite Eric Griffin was beaten, a little griping was in order. But it appears the network, announcer Bob Trumpy and analyst Al Bernstein won't be satisfied until this thing is taken up by the World Court.Yesterday, they went so far as to have Griffin's agent come on the air and brand the judges of the bout in question "a gutless bunch of old men" as though he's some sort of unbiased commentator.

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Bulls looked back with barely a shrug yesterday morning. Onward, they said, as they prepared for the Eastern Conference finals with a new-found determination if not a softer-spoken one."I really think other teams have kind of come to the conclusion that the Bulls are not invincible," Michael Jordan said. "The Knicks proved that. We are beatable. We know that."But what we did show everyone is that we are a talented team when we play basketball, and that's something we're going to try to do from here on. Whoever we face, the type of basketball we played Sunday is what they're going to have to beat.
