WASHINGTON - Ernie Grunfeld traces the success of the Washington Wizards this season back to opening night in Memphis. Against a team that was the biggest surprise of the NBA a year ago, the Wizards played without three starters, fell behind by 18 points - and won. "It showed that we were going to compete," Grunfeld, in his second season as the team's president of basketball operations, said recently. The first of a league-high 10 victories coming back from double-digit deficits was more than the impetus for the franchise's best record at the All-Star break in 25 years.

WASHINGTON - As Golden State Warriors teammates during the 2001-2002 season, Antawn Jamison, Larry Hughes and rookie Gilbert Arenas were supposed to turn one of the NBA's perennial doormats into a playoff team. That never happened, and all three went elsewhere. Eventually, elsewhere became the Washington Wizards. Hughes, who was replaced as Golden State's starting point guard by Arenas toward the end of that season, was the first to sign as a free agent with the Wizards in 2002. Arenas, who in his second year with the Warriors was named the league's most improved player on what became the NBA's most improved team, came to Washington before last season after signing a six-year, $65 million contract.

Guard Larry Hughes, a driving force in the Washington Wizards' first playoff appearance since 1997, is headed to the Cleveland Cavaliers after agreeing to a five-year deal reportedly worth $65 million to $70 million. Because of NBA rules, neither Washington nor Cleveland could comment publicly on the pending signing until the new collective bargaining agreement takes effect later this month. But "I'm confirming that he's not coming back to Washington and plans to sign a deal with Cleveland," Hughes' agent, Jeff Weschler, said yesterday afternoon.

WASHINGTON - The first five games of the NBA season have been a period of adjustment for the Washington Wizards. They adjusted to playing with out starting guards Gilbert Arenas and Larry Hughes in an opening-night win at Memphis. They adjusted to playing with out starting center Brendan Haywood after a preseason brawl in Chicago cost Haywood the first three games. They even adjusted to playing against Shaquille O'Neal in a different uniform, but that didn't go as well. After losing two straight games to O"Neal and the Miami Heat to offset their 2-0 start, the Wizards made adjustments again last night that resulted in a 106-96 victory over the Orlando Magic before 15,042 at MCI Center.

WASHINGTON - Larry Hughes' 38-point performance - with 20 coming in the final quarter - loomed large in the Washington Wizards' 91-87 victory over the Utah Jazz last night at MCI Center, ending a four-game losing streak. But lessons learned from the Wizards' setback in New York two days earlier might have played the most prominent role. That was the game in which the Wizards fell apart while losing a 13-point lead, with no one able to make big plays on the offensive end to replace injured Gilbert Arenas, and with nobody able to stop Allan Houston from scoring 39 points.

Michael Hughes had been on the run for 30 years when a knife fight on a Boston bus put him behind bars. He might have made bail and slipped away, as Baltimore's longest-missing fugitive had done time and again since he was accused of killing a civilian Police Department employee in 1974. But even in jail, a place where nobody wants in, Hughes seemed especially desperate to get out. As soon as he was booked Sunday, Hughes used his one phone call to try to come up with $10,000 cash to quickly make bail.
