Point guardAvery Johnson vs. Charlie Ward: Johnson has done a great job hitting open shots during the playoffs, shooting an impressive 48.3 percent from the field. He has flourished since the Spurs went to the pick-and-roll earlier in the season, and is capable of beating a defender off the dribble. Ward is a starter in name only -- the bulk of the important minutes will go to Chris Childs, a solid defender who also hit several big three-pointers in the Indiana series.Edge: SpursShooting guardMario Elie vs. Allan Houston: Elie provides a toughness that the Spurs had lacked in the past.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - When the end of his career comes, Danny Ferry isn't expecting any kind of extravagant remembrance of his time in the NBA. Ferry, a San Antonio Spurs reserve, isn't even sure when his career - 12 years and counting - is going to end, but if this is his only trip to the Finals, he plans to savor every moment. "I don't know that there needs to be a big announcement," Ferry said jokingly before a recent practice. "There won't be a farewell tour. I'm going to enjoy this.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Tony Parker wasn't even born when the American Basketball Association, the league that gave birth to the San Antonio Spurs and New Jersey Nets, went under. And given that he is a native of France, he likely never heard that the old ABA was famous for its offense. Thankfully for San Antonio, Parker was around to bail out the Spurs last night with the kind of point guard play that would have made James Silas proud. Parker scored 26 points and dished out six assists in a 84-79 win in Game 3 of the NBA Finals, giving San Antonio a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series.

Midwest Division San Antonio Spurs 1999-2000 record: 53-29 (2nd); eliminated by Phoenix in first round Coach: Gregg Popovich (163-115 in four seasons) Key addition: G Derek Anderson Key subtraction: none What can go right: Tim Duncan and Sean Elliott come back healthy, Anderson makes opponents pay for doubling down on either Robinson or Duncan, and the bench stays productive. What can go wrong: Either Duncan or Robinson misses significant time and Avery Johnson loses a step. Likely scenario: Provided they don't have to face both the Lakers and the Blazers, the Spurs have the guns to return to the championship round.

WALTHAM, Mass. — Do the math. Or, in this case, don't do the math. Doc Rivers was asked about coaching against the Lakers' Phil Jackson in the NBA Finals on Monday at the Celtics' training facility. Rivers chuckled. "Oh, like I've always said, I don't even look at that matchup," he said a few hours before the team departed for Los Angeles to continue preparation for Game 1 on Thursday night. "Hell, you're comparing me to Phil … we're in trouble.

Nick Markakis had a pair of hits to move into seventh place on the Orioles hitting list . - The team's scouting director said he 'hit the jackpot' with his top three draft picks   - third, fourth, and fifth-rounders - all of which officially signed yesterday.
