There were smiles all over the place after the Pacers beat the Knicks in Game 4 at Madison Square Garden Monday night.. Chris Mullin was giddy. Jalen Rose could barely contain himself. And Reggie Miller had a big smirk on his face. Miller's mood was a bit baffling. Miller was obviously happy that his team had deadlocked the series at two games apiece, but Miller hasn't come close to living up to his Knicks-killer image in any of the four games. After scorching the 76ers for 29 points in Game 3 of Indiana's semifinals series sweep, then adding another 23 in Game 4, Miller has been a nonfactor in the Eastern Conference finals.

It was one of the first things Wright thought of when he learned this week that St. John's would hire Mullin as its new head coach, that a former Big East power had reached into its past to try to revitalize its present. Wright, Villanova's head coach, was still a student at Bucknell University then, often making the 150-mile drive from Lewisburg, Pa., to 'Nova's campus to see his girlfriend, Patty Reilly, who is now his wife.

A ball boy was picking up around the Indiana Pacers bench when a voice from behind asked if he was having fun. The boy nodded, and rookie coach Larry Bird smiled. So was he. After 13 years with the Boston Celtics, three NBA titles and three league MVP trophies, Bird doesn't miss being out on the floor. This is where he wants to be: on the bench, coaching his home team. "Them days are over," he said about playing. "I had all the opportunities I wanted to do that. This is something I wanted to do. I could have coached other places, but this is the place I want to be.

Scottie Pippen is imprisoned by his own excellence. Pippen wants Chicago to trade him but isn't making it easy for the Bulls to get equal value in a deal. His latest outstanding all-around performance came last night, when he followed a rumor-filled All-Star break with 24 points, eight rebounds and six steals in Chicago's 107-92 victory over the visiting Washington Bullets. "As long as I'm here, I'm going to do my best," Pippen said. "No matter what I say, I'm still going to give my best effort on the court.
