Dave Odom was there the last time."I remember sitting on the bench next to Terry Holland before the game, saying, 'I hope they both play well, but we win,' " Odom recalled this week. "In the first half, they tried to dunk everything. It wasn't a pretty sight."Odom, then an assistant at the University of Virginia, was talking about a showdown between Cavaliers All-American Ralph Sampson and Georgetown prodigy Patrick Ewing early in the 1982-83 season at the Capital Centre.Though the Cavaliers won, the Sampson-Ewing matchup didn't live up to its billing.

If you were going to guess the two San Antonio Spurs that outscored LeBron James in Game 3 of the NBA Finals, it would be easy, right? Tim Duncan? Manu Ginobli? Tony Parker? Try Danny Green and Aberdeen native Gary Neal. Green led all scorers with 27 points, and Neal was right behind him with 24 points , a playoff career high. Neal, a Calvert Hall graduate, went 6-of-10 from 3-point range, helping the Spurs to a superb 16-for-32 night from beyond the arc and a 113-77 win over the Heat.

Since claiming their first NBA championship little more than four months ago, the San Antonio Spurs have experienced distractions that would cause less-experienced teams to lose focus and coaches less confident than Gregg Popovich to lose sleep.It began in August, when starting small forward Sean Elliott underwent a kidney transplant that left his career in doubt. It continued earlier this month, when the Oct. 1 deadline to lock up NBA Finals MVP Tim Duncan to a long-term contract passed without any attempt to re-sign the third-year center.

Grizzlies are toast Shandel Richardson Sun Sentinel One of the teams in this series is finished, and it's not the Spurs. The Grizzlies had their chance to close out one of the league's top franchises in recent history and failed. The Spurs will win the next two games and probably cruise in the following round because of this second chance. Big shots such as Gary Neal's 3-pointer at the end of the regulation have changed playoff series before. Just ask the 2002 Kings.

SAN ANTONIO - The other day, David Robinson was asked about his willingness over the years to defer to Tim Duncan as leader of the San Antonio Spurs. Given the track record of players his age, 37, who perhaps stayed too long at the party and were unwilling to get off the dance floor when it was time, the question wasn't all that far-fetched. Yet, Robinson faced the questioner with a look that said, "Duh, isn't that what I'm supposed to do?" "Right from the get-go, I knew his [Duncan's]

For months now, as the Spurs have extended their dominance, there has been lingering doubt about the ability of such a veteran roster to endure. With Parker out two to four weeks, are we starting to see the first cracks? And that doesn't address the minutes being rung up by Manu Ginobili, who annually stands as the league's most significant question mark at this stage of the season.

Any upset would be an upset Mark Heisler Los Angeles Times Upsets? What upsets? Nothing that happens in the West can even qualify as an upset, unless the Thunder knock off the Lakers, which isn't going to happen. If the No. 7 Spurs knock off the No. 2 Mavericks, does that qualify as an upset? Not as far as I'm concerned, with the Spurs in Tim Duncan preservation mode winning 50 games to the Mavericks' 55. But if you think it does, that would be my pick. Nobody thinks the No. 5 Jazz beating the No. 4 Nuggets would be an upset, do they?

Shaq & Kobe & Timmy ... as the tagline for "Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice" went, imagine the possibilities. It only seems as if Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan, Shaquille O'Neal, the Lakers, the Spurs and whichever team Shaq is with have been duking it out forever. It's actually 11 years, since the spring of 1999, when the Spurs won the first of their four titles, after which the Lakers won the first, second and third of their four titles in the decade ... with the grand showdown yet to come?

WASHINGTON - - Tim Duncan scored 23 points and reserve Roger Mason Jr. added a season-high 20 to lead the San Antonio Spurs to their fifth straight victory on Saturday night, 97-86, over the Washington Wizards, who remained enveloped in a gun controversy surrounding Gilbert Arenas. Tony Parker had 12 points for the Spurs, whose winning streak matches a season high. San Antonio has won four straight on the road and nine in a row against the Wizards. Duncan's jump hook gave the Spurs an 81-80 lead with 6:21 left in the game, and he followed that with two free throws as part of a decisive 12-2 run. Caron Butler scored 24 points and Arenas added 23 for the Wizards, who have dropped four straight.

Now, for our eagerly awaited NBA Decade Awards, or at least they might be eagerly awaited if they came around more often than once in 10 years. Of course, the most glamorous award goes to the Team of the Decade, so here goes: Tie: Lakers and Spurs. History isn't remembered by decades but eras, which might not fit neatly into decades. The Lakers' 4-3 edge in titles over the Spurs this decade hardly demonstrates that they ruled, since it's 4-4 over 11 years counting the Spurs' title in 1999.
