VS. ATLANTA HAWKS* WHEN: Tonight, 7:35.* WHERE: Capital Centre.* TV/RADIO: HTS and WTOP-AM 1500.* OUTLOOK: The Bullets (17-21) are hoping that a weeklong stretch at home will rejuvenate Bernard King, the NBA's third-leading scorer with a 30.1 average. After scoring more than 30 points in 21 of the first 35 games, King has been held in check the last three times out. He shot 6-for-18 while scoring 22 in a 121-119 win over Orlando Monday. Harvey Grant (19.1 points) continues to provide solid support for King, and Ledell Eackles (10.6)

With his team busy fighting for a playoff spot, Harvey Grant hasn't had much time to talk to his twin brother, Horace, lately. But they planned to get together yesterday (Horace is in town with the Orlando Magic, which will face Harvey's Washington Bullets tonight), with one topic in mind."We're going to discuss this," Harvey said. "This whole situation."The situation: Did the Orlando Magic deliberately lie low in Wednesday's loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers? Orlando coach Richie Adubato, whose team has the seventh spot in the Eastern Conference locked up, is a friend of Cleveland coach Mike Fratello.

EMMITSBURG -- Washington Bullets captain Darrell Walker was using his sharpest needle to get under the skin of teammate Harvey Grant."It says here in Dick Vitale's basketball magazine that you'll never be as good as your brother Horace," said Walker. "It says he's a rebounder and inside scorer who likes to rough it up inside, and you lack his muscles. It says. . ."Harvey Grant started to interrupt, but knew better. He had heard this song before, and also knew he couldn't win a verbal duel with Walker.

Before welcoming his twin brother, Horace, and the Chicago Bulls to the Capital Centre tonight, Washington Bullets forward Harvey Grant was asked if the NBA's defending champions had any apparent weakness.Harvey rolled his eyes and said: "None. There is no way you can exploit them." Still, he said that such talk did not indicate abject surrender."We usually play them tough," Harvey Grant said. "But sometimes, you almost get the feeling that they're playing with you like a cat with a mouse.

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Bulls rolled to a 118-94 victory over the Washington Bullets last night in a game so lopsided that Chicago's Michael Jordan didn't play during the fourth quarter.The Bullets, who have won just once on the road, remained tied with the Bulls for nine seconds, then fell permanently behind when Jordan scored a quick layup around Darrell Walker. Then the Bulls scored with dizzying speed, shooting 72 percent in the first half."Michael [Jordan] told me, 'Darrell, you're all over me, but I'm hot tonight,' said Walker.

Washington Bullets center Pervis Ellison, who has missed four of the past five games with a bruised quadriceps muscle above his right knee, flew to Kentucky yesterday morning to seek a second medical opinion from the University of Louisville team doctor.An examination by Dr. Rudy Ellis uncovered a slight swelling in the knee, which was drained of fluid. Ellison returned to Washington last night. He will test the knee in a pre-game workout tonight and decide if he is fit to play.Ellison, who earned All-America honors at Louisville, was concerned that his knee has not responded to treatment, since first injuring it in a collision with forward Jerome Kersey in Portland on Dec. 1.He sat out the next three games before he returned to action in Cleveland on Dec. 7, scoring 18 points and grabbing 13 rebounds.

As a miserable 1992-93 season was winding down for the Washington Bullets, forward Harvey Grant began making it clear that he wanted out. Still bitter with the 22-60 Bullets for matching a contract offered by the New York Knicks before the season, Grant longed to contribute to a team with a shot of winning an NBA title.Grant got his wish, traded by the Bullets -- in exchange for Kevin Duckworth -- to a Portland Trail Blazers team that lost to the Chicago Bulls in the championship round twice in the past three years.

LANDOVER -- Wes Unseld allowed himself about a minute to gather in all that had happened in the first half-hour of the NBA draft last night and declared, "We've definitely improved."So it wasn't a joyous declaration and a suggestion to the fans assembled to start ordering up playoff tickets. But coming from the coach of the Washington Bullets, who often gives the impression he's in a witness protection program, it was a definite thumbs up."Look at it this way," said the team's general manager John Nash.

Veteran forward Harvey Grant had his wish granted to be traded to an NBA contender, and the Washington Bullets obtained a bona fide center in Kevin Duckworth to relieve the defensive pressure on Pervis Ellison in a pre-draft swap with the Portland Trail Blazers yesterday.The Bullets received Duckworth, 7 feet, 280 pounds, along with future considerations from the Blazers, who, after two straight losing trips to the NBA Finals, were prepared to move several starters after being eliminated in the opening round this year by the San Antonio Spurs.

LANDOVER -- With eight minutes left in the third quarter of the Washington Bullets game against the Boston Celtics yesterday, a basket of extra-large balloons was prematurely released from the Capital Centre catwalk.It was "Fan Appreciation Day," but the only reason to celebrate was that the Bullets' horrendous 1992-93 season had ended.For the record, the playoff-bound Celtics got a wake-up call in the last 17 minutes to overcome a 64-59 deficit and roll to a 106-99 victory.An ailing Kevin McHale probably played the final regular-season game of his 12-year career, and there were more tears shed for him than for the Bullets (22-60)

As upsets go, it may not rank with the Jets' win over the Colts in Super Bowl III, little Chaminade's stunning victory over Ralph Sampson's Virginia team or Buster Douglas' knockout of heavyweight champion Mike Tyson.But in Washington Bullets' lore, last night's 105-101 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers was big, real big.Unfortunately, there were only 3,333 eyewitnesses at the Baltimore Arena due to the rescheduling of Saturday night's snowed-out contest.But thousands more might insist they were there the night the Bullets (17-43)

LANDOVER -- The Chicago Bulls, critics say, have been playing at three-quarter speed in defense of their back-to-back NBA titles.But even in cruise control, the Bulls proved too quick and efficient for the Washington Bullets last night, holding off a late rally for a 107-99 victory before a sellout crowd of 18,756.Despite lacking leading scorer Harvey Grant (shin splints) and Pervis Ellison (foul problems) the Bullets remained competitive.Twice, in the closing minutes, they drew within four, but Michael Jordan always responded in typical fashion.
