Pat Riley kept saying it wasn't about him. The coach and vice president of the Eastern Conference champion Miami Heat hasn't been wrong about much this season, even if the way he got to where he is has a lot of wrong about it. But on the night the team he built finally reached the NBA Finals, he was wrong about whose victory this really was. It was a win for Shaquille O'Neal - but Riley pulled the trigger on one of the great thefts of all time, from...

The New York Knicks have had a recent history of Type A - or even Type AA or AAA - coaches. From Hubie Brown to Rick Pitino, from Pat Riley to Jeff Van Gundy, the Knicks were often as overcoached as they were overanalyzed by a media crowd that rivals the one covering the war in Afghanistan. Now the landscape has changed, with assistant coach Don Chaney taking over after Van Gundy's sudden resignation Dec. 8. Chaney, Coach of the Year with the Houston Rockets in 1990-91, already has stated that he doesn't plan on working 18-hour days and watching game tape in the middle of the night, two habits that made some label Van Gundy "Van Grumpy."

NEW YORK -- After the San Antonio Spurs' 12-game playoff winning streak ended Monday night, David Robinson wasn't ready to panic. The reason: Robinson said his team had a history of responding well to losses.The Spurs proved him a prophet last night as their twin towers of Robinson and Tim Duncan came through big, leading San Antonio to a 96-89 win in Game 4 of the NBA Finals.With the victory, the Spurs took a commanding, 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven series and can win the first championship in franchise history -- and become the first former ABA team to win an NBA crown -- with a victory at Madison Square Garden tomorrow night.

LANDOVER -- For years the Washington Bullets have been bullied by the New York Knicks. The Knicks would start the game with their usual pushing and shoving, and the cowering Bullets would be finished for the rest of the game.Not last night, under new coach Bernie Bickerstaff. The Bullets hit back, and sometimes even hit first. And while they wound up losing the game, 97-92, the Bullets gave an indication that, indeed, there will be a different way about things over the second half of the season.

NEW YORK -- The New York Knicks can be obnoxious, even obscene, but say this for America's anti- heroes: Their impure hearts never stop beating.Down two games in the NBA Finals, the Knicks were in their favorite position last night: backed into a corner, fighting for survival, the entire world against them.Naturally, the Knicks made it difficult on their home court, never losing the lead but squandering advan- tages of 14 points in the first quarter and 10 in the fourth.Naturally, they missed 19 of their 23 shots in the third quarter, with Latrell Sprewell going 0-for-6 from the field and missing four free throws.

For NBA fans living in Salt Lake City, it's almost become an annual tease. They cheer their hearts out for the Utah Jazz as it wins its usual 50 to 55 games, get excited during the playoffs with the hope this will be the year Karl Malone and John Stockton are able to bring a title home, and suffer when the Jazz gets eliminated short of its goal -- yet another season ending in disappointment.Which is why there is little excitement in the Utah camp these days, even as the Jazz enters tonight's playoff opener as the top seed in the Western Conference, with a team-record 64 wins under its belt, including 19 victories over its last 20 games of the regular season.

You'd hardly know it to watch him, but there was a time early this season when Miami Heat point guard Dwyane Wade had trouble moving his teammates around. Considering that's what point guards do, Wade had a bit of a problem and, in turn, so did the Heat, which stumbled to an 0-7 start. "At the beginning of the year, it was tough. I really didn't want to tell guys to do something," Wade said. "Now, you have to earn the respect of your teammates and I think I've done that, so I have no problem doing it now. Once you get the respect of your teammates, and they know the kind of player you are and person you are, and that you're not saying anything that would be wrong for them, they'll listen and I have done that."
