Avery Johnson announced his retirement yesterday, officially ending his 16-year playing career and becoming a full-time assistant coach for the Dallas Mavericks. Johnson, 39, played for Dallas in 2002-03, then re-signed with the Mavericks on Sept. 30 as a player-coach with no expectation of playing significant minutes. Johnson will be the top assistant to Don Nelson, 64, who has tapped Johnson to take over when the head coach retires. Nelson's son, Donnie, has been his father's top assistant since 1998, but the younger Nelson will leave the bench to focus on his duties as the Mavericks' president of basketball operations.

What a difference two days and a change of scenery can make. San Antonio, which was routed in Phoenix by 26 points on Saturday, turned the tables on the Suns with a 94-77 victory last night as Tim Duncan scored 26 points to lead the Spurs. "Tonight the defense was consistent both halves," said San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich. "We stayed in front of them, contested shots and cut off their penetration. None of the above happened the last time we played them. " San Antonio, which has won 19 of its last 22 games, also received a season-high 20 points from Avery Johnson.

    Nene had 22 points and 10 rebounds in his Washington debut, and the Wizards defeated New Jersey, 108-89, in Newark on Wednesday, in a game marred by ejections of the Nets' all-star point guard Deron Williams and head coach Avery Johnson. Williams and Johnson were tossed by referee Josh Tiven with 5 minutes, 18 seconds left in the third quarter for arguing a non-call on a Williams drive to the basket. Tiven appeared to call all four technical fouls, getting Williams first and then the coach after his best player was ejected.

Jerry Stackhouse is sticking with Dallas, agreeing to a 3-year deal to remain the Mavericks' sixth man. The details of the deal, agreed to Thursday night, were still being finalized yesterday, according to a team official involved in negotiations. He spoke on condition of anonymity because of league rules against any comments before the signing period begins Wednesday. Stackhouse, 32, will make more than the midlevel exception, which is expected to be set at roughly $6 million.

David Robinson re-signed with San Antonio yesterday, keeping the Spurs' twin towers intact. The 7-foot-1 Robinson has played all 12 of his NBA seasons with the Spurs and teamed with 7-footer Tim Duncan to lead the team to the 1999 championship. Robinson's deal has been reported to be worth $20 million over two years. The signing shores up the Spurs' frontcourt during an off-season in which its guards are leaving. Derek Anderson, who signed a one-year deal with the Spurs last year and proved valuable in opening up defenses with his outside shooting, has agreed to a multiyear deal with Portland.

One month into the NBA season, what do we think and what do we know? We think . . . . . . that the Spurs and Pistons have already separated themselves from the pack in their respective conferences. San Antonio has a record that's much better than the Spurs usually post in November. It's gotten to the point where coach Gregg Popovich isn't sure whether he should yell at his guys or just let them be. "Pop wants us to be perfect," Tony Parker said last week, but the Spurs are still working through some issues; they were 11th in field-goal percentage allowed through Friday, far from their normal one or two ranking.

For 10 years, David Robinson has heard the critics. He was too soft. His team couldn't win the big ones. Now Robinson and his cool, confident San Antonio Spurs are in the NBA Finals for the first time since the franchise joined the league 23 years ago. It is almost time for him to feel vindicated at last. "Not yet," he said. "But four more games and I will. " The Spurs didn't just reach the finals, they steamrolled there, sweeping the Trail Blazers in the best-of-seven Western Conference finals with a 94-80 victory last night in Portland.

David Robinson, The Admiral, remains in drydock. The San Antonio Spurs' ship was all but sinking. Leave it to the 76ers to graciously toss them a life raft. "This was a game we had a legitimate chance to put in the win column," Sixers coach Johnny Davis said after the 113-103 loss last night. "They were minus Robinson, they were in the midst of a losing streak. When you have an opportunity like that, you can't squander it. But that's what we did. " The injury-ravaged Spurs, now 3-13, had dropped eight games in succession, were 0-5 against sub-.

Tim Duncan and David Robinson were everywhere the New York Knicks didn't want them to be. Were there three of them? Four? More? Pick a number. It was more than enough. Duncan, already anointed as the NBA's best player, and Robinson, the San Antonio Spurs' acknowledged anchor, scored, rebounded, blocked shots and intimidated shots. More than anything, they left the Knicks someplace no team has ever come back from in the Finals. The Spurs won, 96-89, built their advantage to 3-1 in the best- of-seven series and put themselves in position to win their first championship tomorrow night.

Sure, Avery Johnson remembers. Who could forget being waived by San Antonio as he was dressed in a tuxedo, part of teammate David Robinson's wedding party? Who could forget being dropped by Denver on Christmas Eve in an airport? Who could forget playing in the U.S. Basketball League, playing in the NBA for 10 different coaches in 11 seasons? "That's the human part of you," the Spurs' effervescent point guard said, looking ahead to the start of the NBA Finals tonight against New York at the Alamodome.
