Sixty-three and counting. "I know this is old hat to these guys, but this is pretty exciting stuff to me," Hersey Hawkins said. "I can't wait to get to 64. " Hawkins, an important Seattle addition in a June 27 trade with Charlotte, scored 20 points, including a three-pointer with 2:40 left, as Seattle tied a franchise record with its 63rd victory, a 96-90 defeat of visiting Portland last night. "This is the most wins I've ever had," said Hawkins, who made four of eight three-point tries.

Nate McMillan thinks it's "funny. " John Lucas thinks it's "unacceptable. " The concept is the compilation of an NBA plus-minus chart, one of the statistical categories maintained by Harvey Pollack, the Sixers' director of statistical information. Pollack featured the chart in the Sixers' media guide, which says McMillan, a Seattle guard, led the league last season. "I didn't know that stat was kept for the whole league, I thought only we kept it," said McMillan, who was unaware he was mentioned on the cover of the Sixers' guide.

The Seattle SuperSonics' franchise-record 57th victory meant something extra because it came against the team that kept them out of the NBA Finals last season. Getting a season-high 29 points from Kendall Gill, the Sonics clinched the Pacific Division title for only the second time in their history by rallying from a 17-point, fourth-quarter deficit yesterday to beat the visiting Phoenix Suns, 111-108, and win for the 11th time in 12 games. "All of it was special," Sonics guard Nate McMillan said.

Cavs going after Izzo Tom Izzo has another suitor. Michigan State athletic director Mark Hollis told the Associated Press on Monday the Cleveland Cavaliers are interested in Izzo, but haven't given him the chance to replace fired coach Mike Brown. Yet. "There is not a contract offer on the table," Hollis said in a telephone interview with the AP. "Last week, there was talk that Chicago and New Jersey were interested. If I was anywhere but at Michigan State, I would be interested in Tom, too, because he's the best coach in college basketball.

Vin Baker returned to the lineup after missing seven games and scored 19 points last night as the Seattle SuperSonics defeated visiting Indiana, 99-88. Baker, a four-time All-Star coming off the worst season of his career, played 33 minutes and shot 8-for-15. Before the game, Sonics coach Nate McMillan said Baker's bruised left knee was 75 percent, but that the forward had talked his way back onto the court by saying he wanted to play badly. Rashard Lewis scored 24 points as Seattle's sixth man, while Gary Payton scored 20 and Brent Barry had 17 for the Sonics.

Nate McMillan is leaving the Seattle SuperSonics to coach the Portland Trail Blazers. Late last night, the Blazers hired McMillan, who led the SuperSonics to the Northwest Division title this past season. He will be introduced today at a news conference, the Blazers said in a statement. McMillan's contract with the Sonics expired today, and the Blazers aggressively pursued him. The terms of his contract were not immediately available. McMillan's departure comes a day after Seattle signed All-Star free agent Ray Allen to a 5-year, $85 million contract extension.

The Milwaukee Bucks fired head coach Terry Porter yesterday, 2 months after finishing their worst season in almost a decade. The Bucks have the first pick in Tuesday's draft, and general manager Larry Harris said the team needs to take a new direction. "Certainly for the direction of this franchise heading forward, we certainly need to make a move," Harris said. Plagued with injuries and a revolving roster, the Bucks went 30-52 this season and failed to make the playoffs in Porter's second year with the team.

North Carolina State beat Iowa State last night. Big men Chris Washburn and Charles Shackleford beat a bunch of little whippets. Big, slow and steady beat small and quick. Call it the Aesop Corrolary. "We were worried about their transition game all night," said Jim Valvano, the NC State coach, after the Wolfpack's 70-66 victory. Slowing down the Cyclones was his No. 1 priority. He accomplished it by pounding the ball inside to his two big guys. Washburn did his big damage early, scoring 16 of his 20 points in the first half.

Besides being the NBA's hottest team, the Portland Trail Blazers have added incentive when they host the 76ers (13-16) at 6 tonight at the Rose Garden. The Trail Blazers (17-12) have won 12 consecutive games, including nine at home. That would be enough incentive for any team to keep firing, but the Blazers also are attempting to avenge a 92-88 loss in Philadelphia on Nov. 16. In that game, Portland squandered a 25-point lead in the second quarter. "I was bothered by our defense, and we allowed them to drive to the basket, and we kind of panicked," Portland coach Nate McMillan said yesterday in a phone conversation.

Sure, people may consider Kobe Bryant's 50 or more points in four straight games a feat for the history books, but that doesn't even begin to tell the story. Ask Portland coach Nate McMillan, whose Trail Blazers were torched for 65 by Bryant, including 24 in the fourth quarter, in the first game of his incredible streak. "What can you do?" McMillan told reporters after the game. "A guy's fading away with two defenders on him, three feet behind the three-point line with a hand in his face?

The 76ers have chosen not to extend the fifth year of Thaddeus Young's rookie contract, allowing Young to become a restricted free agent. The deadline for an extension passed at 5 p.m. yesterday. That doesn't mean the Sixers aren't interested in retaining Young, the No. 12 overall pick in the NBA's 2007 draft; they hold a right of first refusal on any offer to the forward from another team in the league. "We've had conversations with Rod [Sixers president Rod Thorn], and that's where I'll leave it," said Jim Tanner, Young's agent.

They have the kind of talent that makes grown men swoon - and conspire quietly to tank basketball games. But all that is over now, leaving Ohio State center Greg Oden and Texas forward Kevin Durant where they've been for the last six months - projected to go first and second overall in Thursday's NBA draft in New York, the linchpins of one of the best classes in recent history. There are an unusually high number of quality big men in this draft, but Oden and Durant are the franchise-changers, generational talents likely to go to Portland, picking first, and Seattle, picking second, respectively.

Jarrett Jack lifted the Trail Blazers to a road win without Zach Randolph. Jack had 22 points, a career-high nine rebounds and eight assists and Portland won without the suspended Randolph, 93-83, over the Raptors yesterday in Toronto. Martell Webster added 22 points and eight rebounds for the Trail Blazers, who won for just the second time in nine games and will be in Philadelphia to face the 76ers tonight. Randolph made an obscene gesture to Pacers fans in Indiana on Friday and Blazers management responded by suspending him for one game and fining him. LaMarcus Aldridge, the No. 2 pick in the draft, started in his place and had three points and three rebounds.

Denver coach George Karl was suspended for two games without pay by the NBA for publicly criticizing officials after the Nuggets' 101-92 loss to New Jersey. Karl began his suspension with last night's Nuggets-Hornets game in Denver, which he did not attend. Assistant Scott Brooks filled in for Karl, who will also sit out tomorrow night's game at Phoenix. After Monday night's loss to the Nets, Karl suggested New Jersey's Vince Carter flopped twice during the game's final minutes and drew a foul each time.
