BOWIE -- It was the eve of the 1990 season opener and Tim Legler, relaxing in his Minneapolis hotel room, was feeling pretty darn good.He was undrafted coming out of La Salle in 1988, and had played himself into the CBA, two other minor leagues and a pair of 10-day contracts with the Phoenix Suns. And now here he was with the second-year Minnesota Timberwolves, having outplayed every guard in camp -- including Anthony Bowie and Doug West -- and needing only to make the roster to cash in on a contract that he described as "pretty substantial."

It's even included in his e-mail address. And yes, when Legler goes to Las Vegas, 23 plays a prominent role in his wagering. "It sounds crazy, but that number has hit many times for me," the former NBA journeyman told Bloomberg News. "I load up on 23. It's become the most critical number in my life."

Opponent: Milwaukee BucksSite: USAir Arena, LandoverTime: 1 p.m.TV/Radio: HTS/WWRC (980 AM)Outlook: This is the third of four meetings between the teams, with the teams splitting the first two games. The Bucks (24-26) have won three in a row and have moved past the Bullets and Indiana Pacers to the ninth spot in the Eastern Conference. This is almost a must game for the 23-27 Bullets, who can ill afford to lose more ground in the East, especially after Saturday's loss to the New Jersey Nets.

LANDOVER -- It was a game that separates playoff contenders from playoff pretenders. That's because the contenders feast on a team like the Philadelphia 76ers, who came into last night's game with a rag-tag group of players that had been horrible on the road and had the second-worst record in the NBA.It was closer than they would have liked, but the Bullets managed to keep their slim and fading playoff hopes alive as they came back from a fourth-quarter deficit...
