INGLEWOOD, Calif. -- Paul Westphal made good on the first part of his prediction, but the Los Angeles Lakers came remarkably close to sweeping the Suns out of the first round of the playoffs and making the Phoenix coach eat his bold words.Phoenix held off a series of comebacks by the Lakers, who cut a 14-point deficit to one with 19.7 seconds to play, and stayed alive in the Western Conference first-round, best-of-five series with a 107-102 victory last night.The Suns -- who got 27 points from Charles Barkley, 18 from Richard Dumas and 17 from Kevin Johnson -- are attempting to become the fourth team in NBA playoff history to win a best-of-five series after losing the first two games.

PHOENIX -- October 1990: Phoenix Suns insiders at preseason camp in Flagstaff, Ariz., leap verbal skyscrapers to describe the play of swingman Dan Majerle. "He looks like a monster," one executive said of Majerle's impressive play. Perhaps this would be the season Majerle would start on the path to superstardom.January 1991: The word "monster" no longer is used. Maybe "hunchback" would be more appropriate. Or a guy in a somewhat scary Halloween mask.Dan Majerle is still the same valuable all-purpose hustler, the guy who scraps for offensive rebounds and drives to the hoop as well as anyone on the team.

CHICAGO -- When the Phoenix Suns made Dan Majerle of Central Michigan their first-round choice in the 1988 NBA draft, the selection was greeted by a resounding chorus of "Dan Who?" mixed with a crescendo of boos.Then-Suns coach Cotton Fitzsimmons responded by snapping, "This will be the last time you people will boo Dan Majerle."Fitzsimmons' words proved prophetic. The aggressive 6-foot-6 swingman has become one of the Suns' most popular players. He has his own "Thunder-Nine" line of sports clothes, and his new cafe has become the hottest spot in downtown Phoenix.

HONOLULU -- Just about everyone who has watched Maryland senior forward Keith Booth perform this season considers him a legitimate All-America candidate and the unquestioned leader of the unbeaten Terps.But mention his pro prospects, and you will create a heated debate among NBA scouts, at least seven of whom were in attendance at the University of Hawaii on Friday night when Maryland stretched its record to 10-0 with a 66-63 victory over Pitt in the opening round of the Rainbow Classic.Unlike former teammate Joe Smith, who was destined to be a high lottery pick when he left college after his sophomore year, Booth has no guarantee of playing professionally next year.

As the "Three J's," Jim Jackson, Jamal Mashburn and Jason Kidd once graced the cover of the Dallas Mavericks' media guide. They filmed promotional videos together and were supposed to return the Mavericks to respectability in the NBA.Instead, the Three J's have been reduced by one with the trade of Kidd last week to the Phoenix Suns, and by next month all the J's might be gone as rumors persist that Mashburn and Jackson are on the trading block.What went wrong in Dallas? No one was getting along.

LANDOVER -- It was a night when the Washington Bullets would set season records for points in a half, and points in a quarter. It was a night when Calbert Cheaney couldn't miss, and Chris Webber started out dominating. It was a night when the Bullets had a 14-point lead against one of the best teams in the NBA, the Phoenix Suns.But it was also another night to remember that with the Bullets, big leads are not enough. You can look it up against Philadelphia. And Golden State. And Cleveland.

PHOENIX -- There was no way the Washington Bullets were suppose to compete last night. Not with four of their starters out of the lineup, going against the league's hottest team in the Phoenix Suns.If it's any consolation, the Bullets were at least able to leave the America West Arena with their heads held high. But they still came away with their sixth straight loss, 113-102, to the Suns.Yes, it was a good effort considering the Bullets played without Chris Webber (bruised right eye), Kevin Duckworth (sore Achilles)

LANDOVER -- It wasn't really a case of panic, but there was a somewhat serious problem in the Phoenix Suns' locker room before last night's game with the Washington Bullets. Guard Kevin Johnson, the key to the Suns' runing attack, had no sneakers.By game time Johnson had his shoes, seemingly endorsed by Carl Lewis the way the Suns ran in their 142-106 win before 18,223 at the USAir Arena.The win ended a two-game losing streak by the Suns, who have struggled of late to find the form that led them to the NBA finals last season.

CHICAGO -- The defending champion Chicago Bulls found themselves on the threshold of joining the elite teams in NBA history last night after beating the Phoenix Suns, 111-105, to gain a 3-1 lead in the NBA Finals.Riding a brilliant 55-point performance by Michael Jordan, the Bulls now need only one victory in the remaining three games to complete their threepeat mission. No team has won three in a row since the Boston Celtics won eight straight from 1959 through 1966.But Chicago needed a pair of clutch plays in the final seconds to hold off the Suns.
