This was the season. Forget the recent past, the hard-luck Washington Bullets finally were going to turn things around.Chris Webber and Juwan Howard were on board right from the start, and the drafting of Rasheed Wallace provided a talented set of fresh legs. Then there was the trade for Mark Price, a masterstroke that added a veteran who could offer guidance to the young, budding stars.But just like that it began to unravel -- just like it always seems to do with the Bullets. After an impressive showing by Price on the first day of training camp, the bad news this time would come in the form of a midnight phone call to coach Jim Lynam.

A year ago, the biggest concern for the Washington Bullets going into the off-season was re-signing a young star forward (Chris Webber) and solidifying the point guard position. This year, little has changed.Signing Juwan Howard, who becomes an unrestricted free agent July 1, is the top priority. And although it will be costly, Bullets general manager John Nash said yesterday, "I think we'll sign Juwan as soon as possible."If that happens, the most trying time for Nash this summer will be the decision on who will be the team's point guard next season.

LANDOVER -- It appeared to be a tough way to end the first half of the season for the Washington Bullets, already approaching the midway point with a limp -- no Chris Webber, no Mark Price, and going against the two-time champion Houston Rockets.So who could have expected Hakeem Olajuwon to be totally neutralized by Gheorghe Muresan? Or Clyde Drexler to look totally defenseless against a gimpy Calbert Cheaney? Or the Rockets to trail by as many as 39 points on the way to a 120-85 loss to the Bullets last night before a sellout crowd of 18,756 at USAir Arena?

BOWIE -- Mark Price delivered a blind pass from 20 feet away with such pinpoint precision that Washington Bullets teammate Mitchell Butler was caught completely off-guard. Butler wound up catching the pass in Wednesday night's victory over the Philadelphia 76ers, but proceeded to shoot an air ball from underneath the basket."He made some passes that a lot of guys who have been playing in a lot of games just couldn't do," Butler said yesterday. "That one play, I was so surprised that the ball slipped out of my hand.

The Washington Bullets' week started with a game against the league's best team. Now it's on to the NBA's hottest.That's the Cleveland Cavaliers, who take a league-best nine-game winning streak into tonight's game against the Bullets at the new Gund Arena in downtown Cleveland.Washington might get center Kevin Duckworth (sore Achilles' tendon) back to its injury-depleted lineup tonight. Guard Rex Chapman, who has missed eight of Washington's past nine games, is out tonight. But the Bullets aren't the only team hit hard by injuries.

In a game marking yet another return by Chris Webber, the Washington Bullets forward showed he wasn't far from getting back to top form.But it was also a big late shot by Gheorghe Muresan that was needed as the Bullets, without the suspended Juwan Howard, held off a late rally by the New Jersey Nets in a 93-87 win last night before 12,523 at the Baltimore Arena.In addition to Webber's stellar return, Mark Price showed signs of regaining his shooting touch, and younger brother Brent Price found himself a spot in the NBA record books.
