NEW YORK -- They may not have a defense that is as intense as during the Pat Riley days, but the New York Knicks can still turn it up a couple of notches when they want to. Just ask the Washington Bullets.The Bullets began what could be the most crucial stretch of games of the season last night, beginning a string of 11 of 15 on the road. But instead of getting off to a good start, Washington felt the defensive clamp of the Knicks in last night's 87-82 loss before a sellout crowd of 19,763.

LANDOVER -- The first few players taken in last night's NBA draft were Chris Webber, Shawn Bradley, Anfernee Hardaway and Jamal Mashburn, underclassmen all.No, wait, that doesn't sound right. That was the 1993 draft. Where did those notes come from?This time, it was Glenn Robinson, Jason Kidd, Grant Hill and Donyell Marshall, save for Hill, kids with college eligibility remaining.Understandable mistake. Every year, it's pretty much the same thing: Great hoopla, music, noise, cheering, sometimes a groan or two. And commissioner David Stern, for local TV consumption, saying over and over, "The [whatever]

CLEVELAND -- It was obvious from the expression on his face that Robert Pack was not pleased with what was going on. It was the fourth quarter, the Washington Bullets were making an impressive run in what turned out to be a loss to the Detroit Pistons on Saturday night, and Pack remained glued to the bench."

LANDOVER -- After scoring a season-low 73 points against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden last month, the Washington Bullets, almost to a man, called the game their worst effort of the year. Facing the Knicks again last night, the Bullets didn't play as poorly.But it was close.Real close.For a team that had been shooting well, the Bullets shot a season-low 33.8 percent, losing to New York, 92-80, before a sellout crowd of 18,756 at the USAir Arena. With their second straight loss, the Bullets fell to .500 (15-15)

It opens with the theme music of "The McLaughlin Group," but the topic of discussion is not politics -- it's basketball. Specifically, the NBA's Rookie of the Year award, with members of the group raving about the skills of Washington Bullets forward Juwan Howard."

WASHINGTON -- It was, said coach Bernie Bickerstaff, "the culmination of everything coming down." Whatever the reason, fighting for their playoff lives, the Washington Wizards walked off the court with their heads sunk low at the half when they scored a season-low 29 points and trailed by 31."Leaving the court to the boos and with our heads down, we could have thrown in the towel," Wizards forward Juwan Howard said. "We didn't do that."Though the Wizards trimmed a 32-point deficit to 10, it was no time for moral victories.

When the Washington Bullets roll out the basketballs tomorrow at Shepherd College in West Virginia for the official start of training camp, they'll do it with a new coach, a new point guard and a new attitude.But barring a last-minute deal, their newest potential star, Juwan Howard, will be nowhere to be found.Chances are that Howard, the fifth pick of the draft out of $H Michigan, will be in Chicago working out with his personal trainer preparing for an NBA career that may face a long delay because his agent, David Falk, and the Bullets have cut off contract negotiations.

It has been five seasons since the Dallas Mavericks had a winning record, yet No. 2 pick Jason Kidd has gotten their fans excited. In Detroit, there's a feeling the Pistons could begin a turnaround with the addition of No. 3 pick Grant Hill. Though no one expects miracles in Minnesota, the Timberwolves have improved with the signing of No. 4 pick Donyell Marshall.And somewhere in the Washington Bullets' offices, there's a No. 5 jersey with the name "Howard" stitched on the back. But itdoesn't look like Juwan Howard, the No. 5 pick of the draft, will be in uniform any time soon.

LANDOVER -- This was a game in which Washington Bullets center Gheorghe Muresan figured he could do pretty much as he pleased. And yet in yesterday's first half, even though he got exactly the positioning he wanted against Atlanta Hawks center Christian Laettner, Muresan didn't look entirely comfortable."
