With a chance to finally pull ahead in their first-round playoff series, the Dallas Mavericks refused to let anything stop them. Not even the boundaries of the court. The Mavs hustled at both ends of the floor to protect a shrinking lead in the fourth quarter of a 103-100 victory that gave them a 3-2 series lead over the visiting Houston Rockets last night. And in one key instance, they got away with Michael Finley making a play from beyond the baseline. Replays showed that Finley clearly had both feet out of bounds when he jarred a rebound from Houston's Jon Barry with just under a minute left.

Jerry Stackhouse was music to the 76ers' ears when he was available as the No. 3 pick in last June's NBA draft. All of a sudden, after 34 games in the league, he's an unfinished symphony. Was that why coach-general manager John Lucas had Stackhouse sing "The Star-Spangled Banner" at the start of Sunday's open workout at Villanova? Stackhouse took his best shot, missed a note or two, but got through it. Give him credit, though, because he was willing to try the day after getting torched for 48 points by Chicago's Michael Jordan at the CoreStates Spectrum.

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.

Middle of the fourth quarter; Game 35 of the Sixers' season; rookie guard Jerry Stackhouse is flagging. He fires a three-pointer. He barely touches rim. Seconds later, he tries another. Same result. Sixers coach John Lucas pulls Stackhouse, who remains on the bench for most of the rest of Wednesday's game against the Milwaukee Bucks. In an act of mercy, Lucas rested his star rookie. Stackhouse has averaged 37 minutes. That, Lucas said, will change. Eventually. Stackhouse has hit the Wall.

The games are right there, seemingly taunting the 76ers. Close enough that they can reach out and touch them, but not quite close enough to grab by the throat. On a night when the Sixers tried to take the ball out of the hands of Dallas point guard Jason Kidd, they could not place it effectively in their own. It is not the annual Texas Triangle that is swallowing them up as much as their own inexperience. On a night when Allen Iverson scored a season-high 36 points, when Scott Williams swept a season-high 14 rebounds, when Williams and Michael Cage combined to deliver 22 rebounds from the center position, when three Sixers recorded double-doubles, the Sixers lost, 106-102, to the Mavericks.

The NBA Finals took a decided turn yesterday afternoon, with the league announcing it was suspending Dallas Mavericks top reserve Jerry Stackhouse for tomorrow's pivotal Game 5 for his flagrant foul on Miami Heat center Shaquille O'Neal in Game 4. Stackhouse fouled O'Neal from behind as O'Neal went in for a breakaway dunk in the third quarter of Game 4 Thursday. He was given a Flagrant One foul by the game officials on Thursday, but that foul was upgraded to a Flagrant Two by the league office yesterday.

After their loss in Los Angeles on Tuesday night, the 76ers seemed as bewildered as anyone, wondering where the good feelings from the previous week had gone. "We shouldn't lose to that team," said Jerry Stackhouse, who scored 16 points in the 98-93 defeat by the mediocre Clippers. "It was all us. It was nothing they did. We should never have been in that position. " That position was 17 points behind in the fourth quarter at the ramshackle Los Angeles Sports Arena before a crowd much smaller than the announced 7,247.

For two horrifying seasons, Jerry Stackhouse has been the Sixers' good soldier. A hard worker. A role model. A bright spot for a struggling franchise. A year before Allen Iverson arrived, Stackhouse was hyped as the cornerstone of the 76ers' future - the player who would spearhead their return to basketball's promised land. But now, as he begins his third NBA season, Stackhouse's predicament resembles an earthquake, with his future crumbling beneath the debris. He is entering the last season of his contract, and the arrival of two quality players in Jim Jackson and Tim Thomas makes a return in 1998-99 shaky.
