The inspirational play of Bernard King and the coming of age of Harvey Grant are the most obvious reasons for the recent winning surge that has put the Washington Bullets in the Eastern Conference playoff race.But, in compiling a 4-2 record during the past two weeks, the Bullets have received a more subtle contribution from Pervis Ellison, the reserve center-forward who needed almost two months to overcome nagging foot injuries and, at the same time, feel comfortable with a new system.Ellison, acquired from the Sacramento Kings last June in a three-team deal that sent Bullets scoring leader Jeff Malone to the Utah Jazz, finally has begun to display the skills that made him the first player selected in the 1988 National Basketball Association draft after his celebrated college career at Louisville.

Trayvon Reed's career as a Maryland basketball player has ended before it even began, after his arrest Wednesday night in College Park caused the athletic department to prohibit him from enrolling in classes. In a brief statement released Friday by the athletic department, Maryland men's coach Mark Turgeon said “Trayvon failed to meet the standards that are required by the university athletics department.” When reached by telephone, Turgeon declined to comment on the charges pending against the 7-foot-1 center, including second-degree assault, second degree assault of a police officer, theft under $100 and resisting arrest.

The Maryland women's basketball team recently landed one of the most inexperienced players in the country. That's not a bad thing, though - it's her potential and her pedigree that caught their eyes. Aja Ellison, the daughter of former NBA player Pervis Ellison and former Maryland sprinter Timi Crawford, committed to the Terps on Sunday. Ellison has only been playing organized basketball since 2010, but has shown huge improvement and plenty of collegiate potential. “She obviously has the genes - athleticism never was an issue,” said Ron Kessler, Ellison's basketball coach at Life Center Academy in Burlington, N.J. “We just worked on her skill set, fine tuning her ability with a basketball on the court.

LANDOVER -- The Portland Trail Blazers have not needed much help in compiling the National Basketball Association's best record this season, but the Washington Bullets might say Portland got a big assist from the officials last night in its 105-96 victory.The Bullets, before 12,289, had complained loudly over the number of fouls that the Blazers (40-11) shot. It led to the fourth-quarter ejections of starters Darrell Walker and Pervis Ellison, with Bullets head coach Wes Unseld soon following them to the dressing room.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- The Washington Bullets . . . well, ran out of bullets last night, and Detroit's Joe Dumars came in blazing with both barrels to lead the Pistons to a 91-79 victory at The Palace.While Washington made only five of 25 field-goal attempts in the fourth quarter, Dumars scored 13 of his game-high 38 points. It was enough to wipe out a couple of nine-point Bullets leads and give Detroit its seventh straight home-court victory."We had good shots, open layups, and we took some bad shots," said Bullets coach Wes Unseld.

Cue the music and the game show announcer: Take a look at this stage. Each of these general managers is after big talent, but they'll have to avoid the Whammy (see Pervis Ellison) as they take the biggest gamble of their professional lives. From the NBA Entertainment Studios in Secaucus, N.J., it's time to Press Your Luck. OK, so it's actually just the 18th NBA Draft Lottery preceding tonight's Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals. The league has conducted these contrived contests before and will do them again in years to come.

Washington Bullets coach Wes Unseld won't admit to the frustration of the season, but his actions were revealing after being asked again to explain a recent loss.First there was the pained expression on his face, followed by his tossing that night's stat sheet aside as he began to answer questions."I'm not frustrated," Unseld said to a question he's been asked many times this season. "It's not these guys' fault they're playing out of position."Of late for the Bullets, who have lost six straight and 10 of 11, the out-of-position problem has been at shooting guard, where injuries to Calbert Cheaney and Rex Chapman have left a big void.
