Washington... The Washington Wizards lost another game in excruciating fashion, this time failing to hold a lead in the final seconds and falling to Indiana, 114-113, on Saturday night before 13,171 at Verizon Center. The Wizards' losing streak reached four games, and they wasted a triple double by Gilbert Arenas (22 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds) and strong performances from Antwan Jamison (31 points) and Caron Butler (23 points). After Arenas missed two free throws, T.J. Ford drove to the basket and put up a shot that was blocked out of bounds as the buzzer sounded.

Los Angeles -- The Staples Center was packed on a recent Saturday night, all the way up to the skyboxes. LeBron James was in town, the Hollywood types were in their courtside seats and the home team was one of the hottest in the NBA, leading the Pacific Division and already talking about the playoffs. But their uniforms sure looked funny. They read "Clippers" across the front. In a town where you're only as good as your last performance, the Los Angeles Clippers have become the league's biggest turnaround story this season.

With ballots being passed around for various postseason awards, anointing one of the NBA's resident geniuses as Coach of the Year may be equivalent to a kiss of death.Jack McKinney established this precedent after winning the award with the Indiana Pacers in 1981. McKinney is no longer employed as a head coach. Nor are Gene Shue (Washington, 1982), Frank Layden (Utah, 1984), Mike Fratello (Atlanta, 1986), Mike Schuler (Portland, 1987), Doug Moe (Denver, 1988) and Don Chaney (Houston, 1991)

WASHINGTON - It isn't such a big deal in this city any more to see a group of All-Star players thrown together in pursuit of a championship, and the Portland Trail Blazers have, at times, looked as disjointed as the Washington Redskins. The Blazers hardly displayed the form of a championship contender in last night's 104-94 win over the Wizards, a rather ugly performance in which they let the home team off the floor after taking a 12-point lead out of the box in the second half. But the gap in talent between the two clubs was so vast that Portland, nearing the end of a lengthy East Coast trip, didn't have to bring its Sunday best to beat scrappy, but overmatched Washington.

Byron Mouton understands how lucky he is. As a senior small forward with the No. 3 Maryland Terrapins, Mouton plays basketball with joy and passion he can't hide. He is full of demonstrative emotion on the court, be it a pumping fist to accentuate a basket, a scream and the shake of his head to punctuate a slam or that ferocious look the comes over him as he tears the ball away from an opponent or two while claiming another rebound. Mouton doesn't talk much trash, although he relishes those dirty-work moments that are his signature.

INGLEWOOD, Calif. -- Loyalty and patience are attributes rarely associated with professional sports these days, but last night the Los Angeles Lakers decided they were traits worth rewarding.After seven years as an assistant in Los Angeles on the staffs of Pat Riley and Mike Dunleavy, Randy Pfund was named the 14th coach in Lakers history, spokesman John Black said. Pfund, 40, will sign a multi-year deal today to end a search that began last week when Dunleavy stepped down to become coach of the Milwaukee Bucks.

When the Los Angeles Lakers lost four of their first five games this season -- their worst start in 12 years -- a lot of fingers were pointed at Mike Dunleavy.After winning 63 games the previous season and five NBA titles the previous decade, the Lakers were not accustomed to such problems.Their first-year coach was the logical excuse but not the right excuse."We had a rough start, but it was just an adjustment period," Dunleavy said before a recent game. "Everyone was getting used to each other.

DURHAM, N.C. - There is a certain pecking order when it comes to playing basketball at Duke. No matter what the pedigree a player has, or the credentials he takes with him from high school, he must wait his turn with the Blue Devils before becoming one of the team's stars. It has happened that way ever since this modern college basketball dynasty was born with the Duke's appearance in the 1986 Final Four. It happened for Danny Ferry and Christian Laettner, for Bobby Hurley and Grant Hill, for Shane Battier and Jason Williams.

In last season's Catholic League softball championship, Archbishop Spalding used scratch hits and a no-hitter from Kim Sheridan to manufacture a 10-0 five-inning shutout over Catholic.In this year's tournament championship, the Cavaliers (18-1) belted out 12 hits in a five-inning 11-0 massacre of the Institute of Notre Dame for their third straight tourney title.Only this time, Sheridan proved to be human.After firing a no-hitter in Wednesday's 5-0 semifinal win over Seton Keough, the 14-1 hurler's bid for a second-straight tournament no-hitter was derailed by leadoff hitter Tiffany Wilkinson's first-inning bunt single.

BOWIE -- Maybe the expectations were too high. When the Washington Bullets acquired Kevin Duckworth, they wanted the former two-time all-star to provide a presence in the middle that hadn't been felt since Moses Malone was with the team.Duckworth fell well short of those expectations. And the Bullets, who have been trying to deal him for some time, finally were able to trade the 7-foot center to the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday."I'm happy it worked out for Kevin and us," Bullets general manager John Nash said last night.

Among the 30 receiving reprimands was Adm. Frank B. Kelso II, the nation's top naval officer, whom Mr. Aspin decided not to fire last week as punishment over the Tailhook incident.
