NEW YORK KNICKS* WHERE: Capital Centre.* WHEN: Tomorrow, 7:30 p.m.* TV/RADIO: HTS; WTOP-AM 1500.* OUTLOOK: The Bullets (22-32) and the Knicks (22-31) are in a neck-and-neck battle for third place in the Atlantic Division for the final playoff spot. The two play here tomorrow and then meet again Tuesday in New York. As center Pervis Ellison says, "These games are pivotal."The good news for the Bullets is that point guard Darrell Walker (right knee) worked out before last night's game, a 104-90 loss to Miami, and felt fine.

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W. Va. -- John Nash counted the familiar faces at the Washington Bullets training camp at Shepherd College yesterday and then said, "Only two left."Talk about overhauls. Mr. Clean could not have done as thorough a job of housecleaning as Nash has in his two years as Bullets general manager. Only two veterans -- forward Harvey Grant and reserve center Charles Jones -- remain on the Bullets' roster that Nash inherited from his predecessor, Bob Ferry, in June 1990.Through trades, draft choices, free agency and adroit use of the salary cap, Nash has assembled a youthful team that has changed the Bullets' image of hiring NBA retreads and CBA rejects to patch a sinking ship.

PHILADELPHIA -- These are the ones that drive Wes Unseld crazy.It's one thing to put an inferior team on the court and get blown away by a championship caliber team. It's completely another to go into an opponent's building and play solid basketball for 42 minutes only to give the game away in the final six with sloppy play and poor decisions.Last night at the Spectrum, the Washington Bullets let one slip out of their hands in a 108-100 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers."They outworked us down the stretch," said Unseld, after his team squandered leads of nine and 13 after the third quarter.

When a team holds a meeting after losing 19 of its past 22 games and disappearing from the playoff race, you would expect a lot of finger-pointing, acrimony and possibly even a few punches.But the Washington Bullets, who held a "clear the air" meeting Wednesday afternoon in Boston, are not about to start blaming one another for the two-month tailspin that has all but guaranteed them a lottery spot."There was really nothing to be angry about," said coach Wes Unseld, hoping to end the skid against the Atlanta Hawks at the Baltimore Arena tonight.

When the Washington Bullets and Indiana Pacers square off at the Baltimore Arena tonight, don't be surprised to find promoters Bob Arum and Don King as courtside spectators, searching for new boxing talent.Said Bullets coach Wes Unseld, who has been portrayed as both a peacemaker and instigator in past scuffles, depending on your point of view: "I don't think we like each other. That's no secret, and it shows up on the floor."It is not listed in the Ring record book, but several Bullets and Pacers have been fined for their extracurricular activities during the past two seasons.

LANDOVER -- The Washington Bullets ended a five-game losing streak and Bernard King ended a personal one-game scoring slump with a 34-point performance in a 107-105 overtime victory over the Indiana Pacers last night.But it took a driving layup by free-agent guard Haywoode Workman with three seconds left to finally clinch it for the Bullets before a Capital Centre crowd of 7,983.Bullets fans could not breathe easily until Reggie Miller's three-point attempt bounced off the backboard as the buzzer sounded.

In his first month on the job, Washington Bullets general manager John Nash made a blockbuster deal -- guard Jeff Malone for forward/center Pervis Ellison, and a minor one involving reserve guards -- Steve Colter for Byron Irvin.But Nash, who first gained a reputation as an active trader in four years as general manager of the Philadelphia 76ers, has also learned patience.With the National Basketball Association trade deadline at midnight tonight, there is little reason to believe the Bullets will be making any deals, big or small.

VS. BOSTON CELTICS* WHEN: Tonight, 8.* WHERE: Capital Centre.* TV/RADIO: HTS; WTOP-AM 1500, WINX-AM 1600.* OUTLOOK: The Bullets (23-39) ended a nine-game losing streak with a 103-100 victory at Charlotte Tuesday and now take on the Celtics (47-17), who have the third best record in the NBA. Bernard King (lower back) is expected to return after missing Tuesday's game, and Darrell Walker (knee) has been cleared to play but is questionable. If Walker can't go, Haywoode Workman will start.Two matchups worth watching: Bullets center Pervis Ellison, who has averaged 14.9 points and 10.1 rebounds as a starter in the past 12 games, will go against the Celtics' grand old man, Robert Parish.

LANDOVER -- The Washington Bullets got caught looking ahead to playing two critical games in the next five days against the New York Knicks and were scorched by the expansion Miami Heat, 104-90, at the Capital Centre last night.Given an opportunity to replace the Knicks, who lost at home to the Seattle SuperSonics last night, in the eighth and final Eastern Conference playoff spot, the Bullets (22-32) responded with their flattest effort of the season. There were only 7,183 witnesses.Coach Wes Unseld, who had only 10 healthy bodies available with guards Darrell Walker (knee)
