LANDOVER -- The Washington Bullets' prospects looked less than rosy going into last night's game. Not only had they shot poorly in losing four of the last five games, but they were facing an Atlanta team that had won 10 in a row against Washington.So, of course, the game was no contest, with the win-big-today, lose-big-tomorrow Bullets dominating the Hawks, 96-79, before 10,403 at the USAir Arena.It was the fewest points allowed by the Bullets in nearly eight years. And Atlanta's 34.7 percent shooting was the lowest field-goal percentage allowed by Washington this season.

INDIANAPOLIS - The Ravens didn't let Peyton Manning beat them. They did the work for him. The Ravens' 20-10 loss to the Indianapolis Colts last night was the result of critical third-quarter lapses on defense and special teams, not the hottest quarterback in football. Despite holding Manning in check and short of the NFL record for touchdown passes, the Ravens failed to pull off the upset at the RCA Dome because of cornerback Chris McAlister's wrong turn on a touchdown pass and kicker Matt Stover's low field goal.

WASHINGTON -- Kwame Brown may not have needed to worry, but he played last night as if he had something to fret about. After two standout games to start the Washington Wizards' season, Brown, the Wizards' first player straight out of high school, had been in something of a sophomore slump over his past seven games, but the presence of the Miami Heat at MCI Center gave Brown a jump-start. Brown's 15 points and 11 rebounds powered the Wizards to a convincing 95-65 thumping of the Heat, the fewest points ever surrendered by the team in its 41-year history.

The first half of the Ravens' season was a weekly trial of surviving injuries, a suspension and inexperience at quarterback. Now comes the hard part: surviving a brutal finish to the schedule for a playoff berth. Five of the Ravens' final eight games are against teams that sit in first or second place in their divisions. The combined record of their remaining second-half opponents is 37-28 (.569). There is little room for error because the Ravens wouldn't make the playoffs if the season ended today.

CHICAGO -- What happened to Karl Malone in the first two games of the NBA Finals was surprising. What happened to Malone and his Utah Jazz teammates in Game 3 last night, at the hands of the Chicago Bulls' suffocating defense, was downright shocking.Looking to bounce back from a loss that cost the team home-court advantage, the Jazz responded with the lowest-scoring game in the history of the NBA's post-shot clock era.Yes, it turned out to be a record-breaking night for the Jazz in a 96-54 loss that gave the Bulls a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series.

WASHINGTON - It's a good thing Washington Wizards coach Eddie Jordan listens to his assistant coaches or the Toronto Raptors would have been in even bigger trouble last night. Jordan wanted to hit the Raptors with a burst of defensive energy right off the bat last night, but his assistants suggested that he wait until late in the first period or the second before turning up the defensive pressure. As it happened, the Wizards held the Raptors to a Washington franchise low in blitzing Toronto, 86-60, before a sellout crowd at MCI Center.

CLEVELAND - Before the Ravens can get back on the path to the Super Bowl, they must first map out how to reach the red zone. Before they set their sights on another AFC North title, they have to make sure they keep their eyes on opposing receivers. The 20-3 upset loss to the Cleveland Browns yesterday inauspiciously opened the season as well as raised some pressing questions about the team's identity. In giving up big plays defensively and not giving the ball to running back Jamal Lewis , the Ravens went against the trademark formula that made them a championship-caliber team.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - It's a good thing for the New Jersey Nets and San Antonio Spurs that NBA Finals games don't come with money-back guarantees for points scored. Otherwise, the two teams would have owed 19,000 fans at Continental Airlines Arena and millions of television viewers a lot of cash for their Game 3 performance. The two teams betrayed their wide-open American Basketball Association roots last night by slogging through an ugly game that displayed either defensive brilliance or offensive ineptitude.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The Washington Wizards nearly pulled off the ultimate in Houdini acts last night, but couldn't pull an ugly win out of their hats over the defending Eastern Conference champion New Jersey Nets. The Wizards shaved a 16-point first-half deficit down to two in the fourth quarter, but just couldn't overcome their horrid shooting as the Nets seized a 79-65 win. The 65 points were an all-time low in the 41-year history of the Washington franchise. Afterward, Washington coach Doug Collins looked forlorn, searching for some kind of combination that will bring life to his frustrated team.

COLLEGE PARK - Much has changed since last year for the Maryland football defense, which has a younger cast of players, blitzes less because of large leads and faces offenses more hip to its schemes. Yet the bottom line remains the same for the Terrapins, who do the best job of keeping opponents from scoring among teams in the Atlantic Coast Conference, just as they did last year when they won the league title. Until Saturday's 24-21 win over North Carolina State, Maryland (8-2, 4-1 ACC)
