EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Pervis Ellison ended 1991 with a crash and started the new year with a bang.Involved in an auto accident en route to the Capital Centre on Monday night that kept him out of the game with the San Antonio Spurs, the Bullets center bounced back last night with a 31-point, 15-rebound performance to lead Washington to a 112-108 victory over the New Jersey Nets at the Meadowlands.The Bullets (12-18), who have won six of their past seven games, barely hung on, as the Nets cut an eight-point deficit to 107-106 with 59 seconds left.

LANDOVER -- The Washington Bullets have struggled all year to win games unless, of course, New Jersey was providing the opposition.The Bullets made it 3-0 against the Nets last night, coasting to their most lopsided victory of the season, 124-108, before a Capital Centre crowd of 6,412.It was so easy, in fact, that Bullets coach Wes Unseld and his players did not know how to behave.Most of the Bullets starters played only half the game in building a 97-69 lead after three quarters and turning the final 12 minutes into extended "garbage time."

LANDOVER -- With three starters out and his lead over the Miami Heat in the battle for the final Eastern Conference playoff spot reduced to one game, New Jersey Nets coach Bill Fitch had reason for concern before last night's game with the Washington Bullets.But Fitch received a big boost from reserves Kenny Anderson and Sam Bowie, clutch shooting by Drazen Petrovic and strong offensive rebounding by Chris Dudley to wear down the Bullets, 109-103, before 5,933 -- the smallest Capital Centre crowd of the season.

Ask Washington forward Chris Webber about the last time the Bullets faced the Atlanta Hawks a month ago, and he'll tell you about the bad taste of a 29-point loss. "We were totally embarrassed last time," Webber said. "Revenge was a factor. We owed them."Payback would come before a crowd of 11,797 at Baltimore Arena last night, when the Bullets, wearing their retro-uniforms, used a strong defensive effort in the second half to spark a 97-86 win.In winning, the Bullets (15-13) moved to two games above .500 for the first time this season and are off to their best 28-game start since 1984-85 (16-12)

It's true that the Washington Bullets entered last night with wins in seven of their previous nine games. It's also true that the Bullets, during that span, hadn't exactly played some of the toughest teams in the NBA.So the Bullets figured to have a true test last night, playing an Atlanta Hawks team that had won 11 of its last 15 games -- including a win Thursday over the Chicago Bulls. And the Bullets showed that they might be for real, coming away with a 97-86 win before a crowd of 11,797 at the Baltimore Arena.

NEW YORK -- It was the hottest debate in the NBA draft, and the New Jersey Nets went with their hearts, not their heads. Billy Owens was the logical No. 2 selection, Kenny Anderson the magical one. The beauty of the NBA is that magic almost always wins.The moment Anderson was selected, his mother Joan burst into tears and 7,000 fans at Madison Square Garden leaped for the stars. Anderson does that to people in a way Billy Owens never will. That's why the Nets ignored their best instincts and dared to dream.
