After weeks of speculation about his status for next year, Rasheed Wallace indeed plans to retire. Agent Bill Strickland told the Boston Globe on Monday that his client will not return to the Celtics. Wallace has two years and $13 million left on his contract, and the Celtics could reach a settlement with the power forward or trade his contract to a club that could receive the salary-cap relief after the 2012 season. • Mike Ilitch , who owns the Tigers and Red Wings, plans to make a formal bid to buy the Pistons.

Best potential quarterfinal: Wake Forest vs. Duke. A bottom seed has beaten a top seed only once in tournament history, when Maryland upset North Carolina in Bob Wade's last game back in 1989. The Blue Devils are long overdue this season, and maybe sidelined coach Mike Krzyzewski fired them up by running practice earlier this week.Worst potential quarterfinal: North Carolina vs. Clemson. Rasheed Wallace vs. Iker Iturbe; need we say more? How about Jeff McInnis, quietly becoming one of the ACC's top point guards, vs. Billy Harder?

SAN ANTONIO - It was Ben Wallace, in the persistent gloom enveloping the Detroit Pistons after their devastating home loss in Game 5 of the NBA Finals, who said, "We gotta do what they did." Meaning, reach down and find enough of what they call "huevos" here in southeastern Texas to survive in a road cauldron and keep their hopes of repeating as NBA champs alive. The Pistons did last night at SBC Center what the Spurs did at the Palace of Auburn Hills. And giving them as big a helping hand as anybody - showing more of what was needed to win there than anyone on the court - was the certifiable goat of Tuesday's loss, the other Wallace, Rasheed.

SAN ANTONIO - So how about those 24-second violations, offensive fouls, box outs, help rotations and inside switches? Yes, it was defensive basketball as promised last night from the league's two best defensive teams when the NBA Finals opened with the San Antonio Spurs defeating the Detroit Pistons, 84-69. Game 2 of the best-of-seven series is Sunday at the SBC Center in San Antonio. San Antonio's Manu Ginobili had an awesome second half, especially in the fourth quarter when his drives into the lane produced several impressive baskets.

SOME TIME IN the next few months, the Detroit Pistons should send a thank-you card to the Washington Wizards, and portraits of center Ben Wallace, forward Rasheed Wallace and guard Richard "Rip" Hamilton. The Wizards can't put together a championship-caliber team in Washington, but they can in Detroit, courtesy of Wizards owner Abe Pollin, former team president Michael Jordan and general manager Wes Unseld. The Wizards' discards have turned into the Pistons' treasures, with the NBA team becoming a source of pride again in Motown.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. - Detroit is famous for gritty, for tough, for unyielding winters, and now an equally stubborn basketball team. The kids here grow up knowing about Joe Louis, Tommy Hearns, the famous Kronk gym, hot and sweaty and turning out champions made of guts and hard labor. The Detroit Pistons are almost there, a win away now after an 88-80 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers last night that gave the Pistons a 3-1 lead in the NBA Finals. No team has come back from a 3-1 deficit in the Finals to win the NBA championship.

LANDOVER -- Finally, the Washington Bullets got their man.Amid all the trade rumors and draft-day moves, the Bullets decided to play it safe and keep their No. 4 pick, selecting North Carolina's power forward/center Rasheed Wallace.But before they could get the 6-foot-10, 225-pound sophomore, they had to wait and see if the first three teams -- the Golden State Warriors, the Los Angeles Clippers and the Philadelphia 76ers -- would draft the three other sensational sophomores, Maryland's Joe Smith, Alabama's Antonio McDyess and North Carolina's Jerry Stackhouse.

LOS ANGELES - Perhaps it's not going to be that easy for the Los Angeles Lakers. Hey, it looks like we've got an NBA Finals here. "I don't look at us as underdogs," Detroit Pistons coach Larry Brown said after his team outplayed the Lakers last night in a going-away 87-75 victory. "Our players look at themselves as pretty special in their own right." The Pistons were special and very good in surprising everyone but themselves in taking a 1-0 lead in the NBA Finals thanks to a defense that befuddled and bewildered the Lakers.
