VS. SACRAMENTO KINGS* WHEN: Tonight, 10:30.* WHERE: Arco Arena.* TV/RADIO: WTOP-AM 1500.* OUTLOOK: Welcome to the NBA, where a game on Wednesday night against the Golden State Warriors gets you a game on Thursday night vs. the Sacramento Kings (2-13). This is living.The Kings haven't come close to a winning season since they moved to Sacramento from Kansas City five years ago, and there's no reason to think that this year will be any different. There are hopeful signs, though. Forward Lionel Simmons is making a strong early bid for Rookie of the Year honors, and Travis Mays, another of five Sacramento rookies, is learning to play the point.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Either the Washington Bullets left something important on the Oakland Coliseum floor Wednesday, they lost it on the two-hour bus ride to Sacramento yesterday.Their performance in a 104-86 loss to the woeful Sacramento Kings last night hardly resembled their effort in a hard-fought road victory over Golden State the night before. The team that had won four of its previous seven games looked very much like the one that had begun the season with a 2-8 mark.These were the Kings, after all. The Kings, losers for so long and losers 13 times in their first 15 games this season.

PHOENIX -- There was no way the Washington Bullets were suppose to compete last night. Not with four of their starters out of the lineup, going against the league's hottest team in the Phoenix Suns.If it's any consolation, the Bullets were at least able to leave the America West Arena with their heads held high. But they still came away with their sixth straight loss, 113-102, to the Suns.Yes, it was a good effort considering the Bullets played without Chris Webber (bruised right eye), Kevin Duckworth (sore Achilles)

When Phoenix faces the Washington Bullets at the USAir Arena tonight, it will be the fifth game of a seven-game, 13-day road trip for the Suns -- the third longest in team history. Judging by the actions of coach Paul Westphal on Friday in Boston, one might have wondered whether they already had been on the road one game too many.Charles Barkley, Danny Manning and Dan Majerle were all in uniform -- and all three were on the bench at the start of the game. In a move intended to shake up the team, Westphal started Danny Schayes, Trevor Ruffin, Elliot Perry, Joe Kleine and A. C. Green.
