WASHINGTON - The lessons, basketball and otherwise, are expected to come soon enough for Chinese center Yao Ming, but he may already have figured out what's important in today's NBA. When asked what he knew about his new Houston Rockets teammates, Yao, the first overall choice in last night's NBA draft, said he was up to date on Steve Francis, because he had spent a lot of time studying the television commercial of the former Maryland star that has...

LANDOVER -- The return of John Williams to the Capital Centre after more than a year's absence served as a useful distraction for Washington Bullets fans last night, permitting them to momentarily forget the home team was quickly coming apart at the seams.While the smallest crowd of the season -- 5,834 -- vented its frustration on Williams, the recalcitrant forward who missed all of last season with a weight problem, his new Los Angeles Clippers teammates busied themselves with routing the injury-depleted Bullets, 117-98.

From the Chicago Bulls' standpoint, it's solid pressure defense. To the Indiana Pacers, it borders on assault. How effective has Scottie Pippen's defense been on Indiana point guard Mark Jackson? Effective enough that few are giving the Pacers a chance to get back into the series."I don't know what type of adjustment they can make," Pippen said.That's the stage for Game 3 today at Market Square Arena in Indianapolis, where the Bulls take a 2-0 lead in their best-of-seven Eastern Conference final series against the Pacers.

LANDOVER -- The New York Knicks and their demanding coach, Pat Riley, discovered last night that, sometimes, practice does not make for perfect basketball.Barred from working out before their game with the Washington Bullets because of holding an illegal scrimmage on New Year's Day, the Knicks played clinic-like basketball for 30 minutes to gain a 21-point lead and survived a fourth-quarter rally to post a 113-99 victory.Former Georgetown All-American Patrick Ewing treated a Capital Centre sellout crowd of 18,756 to a 24-point, 19-rebound performance.

Bobby Jackson has made a career out of coming from nowhere to become a star. He did it at Salisbury High School in North Carolina. He did it at Western Nebraska Junior College. And now he is doing it at the University of Minnesota.On the college level, it has taken five years and nearly as many injuries for Jackson to reach his current status as the player who has led the Gophers to the school's first Final Four. Minnesota will play defending champion Kentucky on Saturday at the RCA Dome in Indianapolis.
