MIAMI -- The Washington Bullets had big men Juwan Howard and Chris Webber scoring 57 points on the inside. They had Scott Skiles adding 19 on the outside.But they had no answer for Miami Heat point guards Khalid Reeves and Bimbo Coles, who took the game -- and the Bullets' shot at stopping what now is a six-game losing streak -- in the final minutes.Reeves swished two three-pointers and Coles had a season-high 25 points and a key steal and two free throws late, as the Heat won going away, 111-107, last night at Miami Arena.

BOWIE -- There was no hesitation for Mitchell Butler as he caught passes during a shooting drill, and no hitch as he released his jumper.More often than not, his jumpers hit the bottom of the net -- some feat for a player who brought on nervous responses any time he put up anything other than a layup last season for the Washington Bullets."

BOWIE -- After concluding summer minicamp at Bowie State, the Washington Bullets are convinced lottery choice Calbert Cheaney of Indiana will be an instant contributor, but questions remain about center/forward Conrad McRae, the second-round pick from Syracuse trying to make the roster.Cheaney, auditioning at shooting guard and small forward, impressed coach Wes Unseld with his ability to get his own shot, move without the ball and fight through picks defensively."He showed us he could do a lot of things we didn't know he could do,"said Unseld.

LANDOVER -- In the end, those that remained in the sellout crowd at the USAir Arena stood up, and applauded loudly. They got their first glimpse up close of the 1995-96 version of the Washington Bullets, and they liked what they saw.The Bullets got solid point guard play from Robert Pack. They got offensive support from forwards Rasheed Wallace and Juwan Howard and guard Calbert Cheaney. And they got key reserve minutes from Mitchell Butler on the way to a hard-fought 100-89 win over the Detroit Pistons before a crowd of 18,756.

DALLAS -- Few teams in the NBA have made the Dallas Mavericks look good, but that's what the Washington Bullets did last night.The Mavericks, the league's laughingstocks, turned the Bullets into a one-night joke with a 87-77 victory at Reunion Arena.It was Dallas' sixth victory and first against an Eastern Conference team. But the Mavericks have become tougher in recent weeks, winning four of seven after a 2-39 start. In fact, last night's win gave the Mavericks their first back-to-back victories.
