Joining Neal on the first team are Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin, Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins, Washington Wizards guard John Wall and New York Knicks guard Landry Fields. Neal joins Jorge Garbajosa as the only undrafted players to be named first-team All-Rookie; Garbajosa received the honor in 2006-07 with the Toronto Raptors.

Heat@Spurs 8 p.m. [ESPN] Will Tony Parker (right) go for another 55 points against Miami? Will the Heat's Dwyane Wade see Parker's big game Wednesday night as a challenge and try to score 56? And would you recognize Miami coach Erik Spoelstra if he came to your door asking whether you could spare a pick-and-roll? As usual, I have no answers.

Spurs are cracking Ira Winderman Sun Sentinel Hasn't Tony Parker just answered that, with all due respect to George Hill? 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.

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.

Granted, sports are supposed to represent the ultimate meritocracy - may the best team win and all - but if the NBA Western Conference finals wind up being the Utah Jazz against the New Orleans Hornets, the TV ratings will be so puny you'll be able to count viewers by a show of hands. Both teams have had nice seasons and have outstanding players, but let's face it, these are teams with identity problems. Neither franchise even had the simple creativity to change its nickname when it relocated.

SAN ANTONIO - Tony Parker has been counted on to play a major role for a contending team, and he has delivered. Certainly Tim Duncan is San Antonio's dominant player, but Parker, from midseason on, has provided a second weapon for the Spurs and made them a legitimate championship contender again. Parker, 21, offers no excuses about his age or inexperience. And they wouldn't be accepted, anyway, if he tried. He's in the NBA making a lot of money, so he's expected to perform at a high level.

Leitao resigns as Virginia coach col. bask. Dave Leitao resigned yesterday as the Virginia men's basketball coach after the team's worst season in decades. Leitao will be paid about $2.1 million, athletic director Craig Littlepage said. Virginia finished 10-18 this season, 11th in the Atlantic Coast Conference. It was the Cavaliers' worst record since they went 9-17 in 1967-68. Leitao won the ACC Coach of the Year award in 2007, when Virginia shared first place in the conference with North Carolina.

LOS ANGELES - If the question was the Los Angeles Lakers' capability, if it was still in them, if they could stand shoulder-to-shoulder and do something dynamic over a single afternoon, then Game 3 of the NBA Western Conference semifinals settled it. They beat back their season's potential "death knell," as coach Phil Jackson had called it the day before, and routed the San Antonio Spurs, 105-81, yesterday at Staples Center. Shaquille O'Neal had 28 points, 15 rebounds and eight blocks, and Kobe Bryant drove a different-looking Lakers defense and Gary Payton returned to the series, all on an afternoon that was theirs almost from the start and ended, for all intents and purposes, sometime late in the third quarter.
