On Friday he is to be enshrined in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, a greying icon of a long-gone professional league that introduced the tri-colored ball and the 3-point shot. That's where Bob "Slick" Leonard won acclaim. Three times in the early 1970s, Leonard coached the Indiana Pacers to championships in the American Basketball Association before it merged with the NBA in 1976. But while his induction is expected to embrace his Hoosier roots and ABA genius, Leonard really honed his skills as the Bullets' coach in 1963-64.

When the Washington Bullets and Indiana Pacers square off at the Baltimore Arena tonight, don't be surprised to find promoters Bob Arum and Don King as courtside spectators, searching for new boxing talent.Said Bullets coach Wes Unseld, who has been portrayed as both a peacemaker and instigator in past scuffles, depending on your point of view: "I don't think we like each other. That's no secret, and it shows up on the floor."It is not listed in the Ring record book, but several Bullets and Pacers have been fined for their extracurricular activities during the past two seasons.

NEW YORK -- Patrick Ewing missed the open layup. Missed it with John Starks screaming for the ball in the left corner. Missed it with Reggie Miller thinking the Knicks would win in overtime. Missed it with his dream of an NBA title hanging in the balance.These things happen for a reason. This one had nothing to do with Ewing, and everything to do with the Indiana Pacers, "the train that couldn't get up the mountain" in the words of backup conductor -- er, point guard -- Haywoode Workman.Few expected The Little Train That Could to climb Mount Ewing and pull out of the fabled arena that sits atop New York's Penn Station yesterday, but guess what?

INDIANAPOLIS -- Indiana's Reggie Miller, NBA trash-talker extraordinaire, had been unusually quiet through the first three games of the Eastern Conference finals. That changed yesterday -- but the violent nature of this series did not.Miller chatted incessantly in the crucial closing minutes, drawing the heavy-handed attention of New York Knicks guard Derek Harper, as the Pacers pocketed an 83-77 victory.The win tied the best-of-seven series at two games each and left the Knicks, a team that was thought capable of blasting Indiana away in four or five games, rattled and angry.

NEW YORK -- Indiana Pacers guard Reggie Miller said he wanted the New York Knicks. Miller, one of the best pure shooting guards in the league, may have gotten a bit more than he bargained for.With John Starks and Hubert Davis hounding him all night, Miller was a nonfactor as the Knicks held off a late rally to defeat the Pacers, 100-89, and take the first game of the Eastern Conference finals. It was only the second time the Knicks have reached the century mark in the playoffs.Miller's line: 14 points on 11 shot attempts -- almost six fewer shots than he has averaged during nine previous playoff games.

I was definitely right about yesterday being a grind after Memorial Day weekend. Throw in the underrated impact of 8 p.m. Orioles games and its been a tough week after the holiday. So as we're all dragging again this morning, enjoy the Coffee Companion, where every weekday morning we recap the local sports headlines. - The Brewers scored in the first three innings Wednesday night, and a pair of Nelson Cruz home runs couldn't pull the Orioles back in an 8-3 loss in Milwaukee . Cruz has a league-leading 19 home runs . - The Orioles were connected to Cubs pitcher Jeff Samardzija by a report in Chicago, but executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette didn't give much indication that those talks were serious.

WASHINGTON - The offense was dragging and desperately in need of some direction when coach Randy Wittman called on his most tested veterans to serve up a lesson in ball movement, hustle and huge shots. With Andre Miller putting on a point guard clinic, Al Harrington delivering a flashback offensive performance and Drew Gooden dashing all over the court with abandon, the Washington Wizards went into the locker room Sunday with a double-digit halftime lead over the Indiana Pacers. When the Wizards returned for the third quarter and Wittman put the game back into the hands of his starters, the offense flew off the rails once again.

Washington... The Washington Wizards lost another game in excruciating fashion, this time failing to hold a lead in the final seconds and falling to Indiana, 114-113, on Saturday night before 13,171 at Verizon Center. The Wizards' losing streak reached four games, and they wasted a triple double by Gilbert Arenas (22 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds) and strong performances from Antwan Jamison (31 points) and Caron Butler (23 points). After Arenas missed two free throws, T.J. Ford drove to the basket and put up a shot that was blocked out of bounds as the buzzer sounded.

NEW YORK -- From all the whooping and hollering in and around Madison Square Garden, one would have thought that the New York Knicks had won the NBA title. But forward Charles Oakley wants everyone to hold off on the celebration."You have to remember that we were here last year -- the Eastern Conference finals," Oakley said. "We're not over the hump yet. We have a long, long way to go."But the major step was taken Sunday, in an 87-77 win by the Knicks that ended the three-year reign of the Chicago Bulls -- the team that had eliminated New York for three straight seasons.

The Pacers say Granger won't need surgery and is starting rehabilitation. Granger left the floor in the third quarter of Saturday's game against the Clippers.
