SALT LAKE CITY -- They have dominated the 1990s, winning five NBA titles. They boast two of the best players in basketball, including one whom many call the greatest player ever. Yet the Chicago Bulls believe that when the NBA Finals start tonight against the Utah Jazz, they will be in an unfamiliar role as underdogs.And you know what? There are not many people who would argue. The Bulls, just three days after barely escaping the Eastern Conference finals, go into Game 1 against a Utah team that has been resting for nine days.

ATLANTA - There's a reason Greivis Vasquez will take the court at the Georgia Dome tonight determined to scratch, claw and sweat his way through 40 minutes. There's a reason they'll have to drag him off the hardwood if the scoreboard isn't tilting in Maryland's favor when the final buzzer sounds. There's a reason he vows to play tonight's game against North Carolina State as though it's the last time he'll ever wear a Maryland jersey. That reason? "It could be," Vasquez said yesterday.

It's been nearly four months since a 17-year-old Fairfax, Va., girl accused four members of the Washington Capitals of sexual assault in the back of a limousine outside of a bar in Georgetown.Six weeks after the initial media blitz on the four suspects -- Scott Stevens, Geoff Courtnall, Dino Ciccarelli and Neil Sheehy -- a grand jury decided not to pursue the case.There was no prosecution, no trial, no jury, no case.But unlike Stevens and Courtnall, who have moved on to the St. Louis Blues, Sheehy and Ciccarelli might be forced to face a different kind of trial.

For all the turmoil that has swirled around the Terps this season, for all the criticism leveled at coach Gary Williams, it now comes down to simple math. The equation is so basic, even I can do it, and I failed math twice in college. Here it is: Win one more game, tonight's game, and you're in the NCAA tournament. If Maryland finishes with a .500 record in the Atlantic Coast Conference - and a win against Wake Forest would accomplish that goal - there is simply no way the NCAA selection committee can keep the Terps out of the Big Dance, regardless of what happens in the ACC tournament.

UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- Just four periods after getting veteran center Dale Hunter back from a 21-game suspension, the Washington Capitals have lost him again.On Sunday, the Capitals saw him go down on an apparent cheap shot, his legs wiped out from under him from behind by New York Ranger Alexei Kovalev's left skate. The Capitals initially thought they had lost Hunter for 10 days. Yesterday, they learned it will be from four to six weeks.An examination by team physician Richard Grossman revealed a torn medial collateral ligament in Hunter's left knee.

Every time the Orioles turn a corner it seems they discover another negative streak.The most recent is one they'll have to break this weekend if they harbor any notion of overtaking the Cleveland Indians for fourth place in the AL East. With a two-game cushion over the Orioles, the Indians most likely would secure their position by splitting the four-game series, and recent history indicates that should be no problem.The Orioles need three wins to draw even with the Indians and four to move ahead of them.

Blast midfielder David Vaudreuil looks at tonight's game with the Dallas Sidekicks as a mirror image of his own situation."Playing Dallas is an opportunity we can't afford to miss," said Vaudreuil. "Just like I can't afford not to take advantage of my opportunity to play."During a meeting yesterday, Blast coach Kenny Cooper made it clear to his third-place team that it can't afford to lose any of its six remaining home games, beginning tonight against Dallas.As for Vaudreuil, he will be seeing more playing time because of an injury to Tim Wittman, who will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Monday.

Why? Why should the Ravens play their starters for more than a quarter tonight and jeopardize their seasons by inviting injury? Why should the Ravens sacrifice the entire regular season just to see whether their offense can score points and churn out yards against the Falcons' backups and training camp fodder? Some of the Atlanta players won't even be in the league after Saturday. They might try to make a run at a few of the Ravens' injured starters. That's a temptation the Ravens can squash.

Preseason NFL games aren't usually worth the price of admission, except for the third one. That's because you can get a realistic glimpse into your team's future. After nearly four weeks and two preseason games, we all have an idea about the Ravens in 2008, and it's not a pretty picture. But more can come into focus tonight when the Ravens play the St. Louis Rams at the Edward Jones Dome. Most starters will play about three quarters before going into hibernation until the regular season starts Sept.
