NEW YORK -- The lineup change for the New York Knicks was barely noticed by the sellout crowd at Madison Square Garden in the first quarter of Monday night's game against the Charlotte Hornets.Maybe the fans were too busy watching Spike Lee among the famous and just plain rich folks settling into their $1,500-a-game courtside seats. Or perhaps they were too focused on the Knicks' missing 16 of their first 17 shots.More than two hours later, it was hard not to see what had transpired during the course of a 112-109, overtime victory over the Central Division-leading Hornets.

Atlanta -- In order for Ohio State freshman Greg Oden to prepare for his matchup against Georgetown junior Roy Hibbert - a classic yet rare battle between 7-foot centers on college basketball's grandest stage - the Buckeyes' assistant coaches had to somehow grow a few inches. Quickly. They improvised by extending their arms above their heads while clutching various dummy pads to imitate Hibbert's 7-foot-2 frame and crash into Oden. "I have to be able to be stronger and not let him get good position on the block, basically stuff I like to do," Oden said.

WASHINGTON -- Gene Smith's stories about Georgetown basketball come in waves, like the waves of intimidating, blue-and-gray-clad defenders his Hoyas once ran at opponents during the program's 1980s glory days. Smith, a defensive catalyst on the 1984 NCAA championship team, is talking and e-mailing about the notoriously rugged practices of coach John Thompson Jr. He's recalling the tenacity of center Patrick Ewing, whom he calls the defensive "anchor [who] sealed the deal." It's not lost on Smith and his former teammates that the reason a reporter is contacting them now is because there's another Thompson coaching on the Hilltop - John Thompson III, the former coach's son. And because there's another Ewing - Patrick Ewing Jr., the former player's son who is practicing with the team and will be eligible next season after transferring from Indiana.

NEW YORK KNICKS* WHEN: Tonight, 7.30* WHERE: Madison Square Garden, New York.* TV AND RADIO: Ch. 20, WBAL-AM 1090.* OUTLOOK: Washington (1-1) is coming off an upset win over the Chicago Bulls, but could run into a buzzsaw tonight. The Knicks (1-2) have lost two straight at home -- a bad start for a team trying to divest itself of the tag as the under-achievers of the Atlantic Division. Patrick Ewing and friends figure to be too much for the youthful Bullets, who can rely only on veteran forward Bernard King as a scoring threat.

NEW YORK -- For the New York Knicks, the approach to the preseason is to just get to the regular season healthy. So Patrick Ewing, Charles Oakley, Hubert Davis and Doug Christie sat on the bench in street clothes during the game against the Washington Bullets last night, resting their injuries.Still the Knicks, who had a difficult time scoring 100 points in games with All-Stars Ewing and Oakley in the lineup, led by as many as 35 points last night on their way to a 113-98 win over the Bullets at Madison Square Garden.

The Patrick Ewing saga isn't over by a long shot. Although an arbitrator has ruled against his bid for restricted free agency, key questions remain unanswered. The only one who can answer them is Ewing, and he isn't talking."The mind and spirit of Patrick Ewing is in a place I don't know," New York Knicks president Dave Checketts said.Does Ewing want to continue to play for the Knicks, which management says it dearly wants, or will he ask to be traded, a request management said it would try to accommodate?

With the 20th anniversary of Villanova's NCAA title upset of Georgetown approaching, two things stick out that are relevant to this week's Sweet 16 matchups. One is that unexpected victories like the one the Wildcats pulled off no longer have the David vs. Goliath effect that they did in 1985. It's almost expected that lightly regarded teams like North Carolina State and Wisconsin-Milwaukee - seeded 10th and 12th in their respective brackets - should find themselves four wins away from a national championship.

WASHINGTON - No words were spoken; only eye contact occurred between Michael Jordan and Washington Wizards coach Doug Collins. The game against the Orlando Magic was out of reach and Jordan was out of steam. Barely able to jump because of a sore knee that will require a doctor's examination in Chicago today, Jordan took a seat at the end of the bench and watched the last 3:50 of Washington's 96-87 defeat last night at the MCI Center. Four games in five days finally caught up with the Wizards and certainly with their 38-year-old legend.

However the Washington Wizards use their possession of the first pick in next Wednesday's NBA draft, the choice will be made on the assumption that Michael Jordan, the team's president of basketball operations, will not come back from retirement, according to new coach Doug Collins. Collins said during a conference call yesterday that Jordan has not ultimately decided whether to emerge from retirement after three years on the shelf but wants things to proceed as if he will not play this winter.

INDIANAPOLIS - Travis Best committed a flagrant foul on Shaquille O'Neal during Wednesday night's Game 4, which, at the time it happened, did not cost his team too much. O'Neal made the free throws, but the Lakers failed to score on the ensuing possession. A day later, Best's foul may have cost the backup point guard a chance to compete in the rest of NBA Finals. Best grabbed O'Neal with 7:41 left in the fourth quarter when the Lakers' center was going up for a dunk. The 7-foot-1 O'Neal made the basket anyway as the 5-11 Best landed on his left shoulder.

LANDOVER -- Patrick Ewing was not among the NBA all-stars performing in a charity basketball game at the Capital Centre last night, but the disgruntled New York Knicks star still was one of the major topics of conversation.Players and coaches were speculating as to whether Ewing, a 7-foot center who lost an arbitration case last month, will be traded.The arbitrator ruled he was one of the NBA's four highest-paid players. Had he ruled otherwise, Ewing would have been declared a free agent under a stipulation in his contract.

In a little more than three weeks, NBA teams are scheduled to start their training camps. In just over seven weeks, the regular season is due to tip off. But those start dates may be subject to change depending on what's announced today in the New York offices of the National Labor Relations Board.This afternoon is when the results of voting by locked-out NBA players will determine whether a bid to decertify the union is successful, or whether the union membership instead voted to ratify the labor deal on the table.

NEW YORK -- It was well past midnight, and the game had been over for nearly an hour. But thousands of fans at Madison Square Garden obviously wanted to savor the special moment. As they danced in the aisles waving their orange towels, Aretha Franklin's voice filled the arena with a song that for this night was extremely appropriate:Respect.A New York Knicks team that began the season with extremely high expectations nearly became a lottery team, just barely making the NBA playoffs. But last night the team made history, as the Knicks became the first No. 8 seed to reach the NBA Finals, clinching a spot with a 90-82 win over the Indiana Pacers before a sellout crowd.

NEW YORK -- His arrival in this hard-to-please town wasn't exactly met with a ringing endorsement from his coach. In fact, New York Knicks coach Jeff Van Gundy questioned his work habits and his toughness, and his heavy minutes on the bench early in the season earned him the nickname "Marcus Can't Be."Well, Marcus Camby "Can Be" an important piece to the improbable championship run of the Knicks. While Larry Johnson grabbed all the headlines with his rare, game-winning four-point play in New York's 92-91 win over Indiana on Saturday night, Camby's solid effort leading up to that shot helped keep the Knicks in the game.
