PISMO BEACH, Calif. — Horace Grant is so enchanted by his adopted home on California's central coast that he might be mistaken for a realtor or tourism-council spokesman. "It's so serene," he says. "It's such a beautiful area. " At the moment, the former Lakers forward is seated in the living room of a rented hilltop home high above Pismo Beach. Out the window on a clear winter day, views of the jagged coastline are magnificent, stretching from San Luis Obispo Bay to the northwest, the shimmering Pacific Ocean dead ahead and, to the south, the Pismo Dunes Natural Preserve and beyond.

He then scored six of his game-high 29 points, including two acrobatic layups, to give the Bulls a 104-96 victory."It wasn't pretty, but we persevered," said Bulls coach Phil Jackson.

The exhibition opener between the Bulls and Washington Bullets was nearing the end, and Scottie Pippen was settled comfortably at the end of the Chicago bench.But when the Bullets tied it with 1.9 seconds left, Bulls coach Phil Jackson needed someone to throw an inbounds pass, and he called on his all-star forward. Pippen laughed heartily as he took the ball from the official.In that one sequence, the seven-year veteran demonstrated that any ill feelings between him and Jackson from last year's playoffs were put aside.
