LANDOVER -- There have been times over the past two games when Washington Bullets forward Juwan Howard has been forced to play to near exhaustion. But with Chris Webber and Calbert Cheaney out of the lineup, he might as well get used to shouldering the load.For Howard last night, it was just another night at the office -- 27 points and eight rebounds, good enough to help the Bullets defeat the struggling Dallas Mavericks, 112-100, before 18,756 at USAir Arena.This was no solo act, as all five starters scored at least 12 points for the Bullets.

ST. LOUIS -- The following warning goes out to all Magic Johnson fans, and all those who can't read enough about the Los Angeles Lakers star and his return to the Lakers:In an effort to get NBA fans up to speed as to what's going on around the league this fall, there will be no further mention of what's-his-name for the remainder of this column. This is not meant as a slight to No. 32, but merely as a brief timeout. Management guarantees there will be plenty of mention of Mr. Johnson in later columns.

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Only at the end, as the raucous celebration erupted around them, did Jalen Rose and Chris Webber look like freshmen yesterday.No sooner had Michigan secured a spot in next week's Final Four than Rose and Webber collapsed to the floor, a pair of giddy 19-year-olds looking for a place to share a private moment.And the moment truly was theirs after a 75-71, overtime victory over Ohio State in the NCAA Southeast Regional final.Webber, who had 23 points, 11 rebounds and five blocked shots, held four fingers in the air and kept repeating the words "Final Four" to Michigan fans in Rupp Arena.

Yesterday Jackson lost his long fight with cancer at the age of 63.Jackson was a beautiful guy -- warm, eminently human, possessed with one of the world's great laughs.

A class actAs a coach in professional hockey, I have had the pleasure of meeting many fine athletes, fans and media people.I was most fortunate to meet Jim Jackson. In some cases, the relationship between sports and the media can be adversarial. This man, who was a journalist and a super dad, never had this problem. He wrote what he saw and heard in interviews, truthfully and objectively. I know your readers will miss him. Iknow I will.Gene Ubriaco,head coach,Atlanta Knights It is with a great deal of sadness that I read of the passing of one of your sportswriters, Jim Jackson.

Life on the road for the Washington Bullets hasn't been pleasant the past three Decembers. In 24 road games from 1991 to 1993, the Bullets have won just four -- stretches that have derailed their hopes early.That's what the Bullets face starting tonight in Dallas against the Mavericks: a tough stretch that will have them on the road in eight of their next 10 games, including difficult stops in Houston, San Antonio, Phoenix, Denver and Golden State.It's not a pleasant thought for a team that has lost seven of its past eight games.
