On April 13, Patrick Ewing crammed 41 points into 26 minutes against Indiana. Then he announced to the rest of the world what was already painfully obvious to the Pacers. "I feel unstoppable," Ewing said. "I feel like every shot I take is going in. " For two, nearly three, seasons, the fitful Knicks had waited to hear these magic words. They plucked Ewing out of Georgetown in 1985 - making him the first pick in the NBA draft - signed him to a $30 million contract and anointed him savior of a tattered franchise.

Slumped over a stool, looking about seven inches shorter than his 6-foot-11 height, Marcus Camby appeared to be imitating Patrick Ewing. Camby was frowning with such intensity that he resembled someone a heartbeat away from a professional catharsis instead of someone facing his first career playoff start. His demeanor was that of someone watching a clock tick, with hopes of a championship fading to black. Perhaps when a team just three victories away from a berth in the NBA Finals loses its star, its players should be despondent.

New York Knicks guard Chris Childs received a lukewarm greeting from the sellout crowd at Madison Square Garden when he made his first appearance of the game yesterday. A little more than 2 1/2 hours later, after the 6-foot-3 guard had sparked the Knicks to an 83-76 victory over the Indiana Pacers in an Eastern Conference semifinal playoff game, Childs was getting congratulatory pats on the back. In a game that marked Patrick Ewing's triumphant return to his home court, it was Childs who provided the glue that kept the Knicks on track.

They might not want to use up all the ticker tape in this city just yet. A night after the New York Rangers raised the roof at Madison Square Garden, the Knickerbockers evened the NBA Finals at 2-2 with a randy 91-82 victory over the visiting Houston Rockets. That means the series will definitely return to Houston for Game 6 on Sunday. And it keeps open the possibility that the Knicks and Rangers can still become the first NBA and NHL teams from the same city to win championships together.

The New York Knicks were bound to get burned by the whistle sooner or later. They have lived a charmed life this postseason. The weighty, controversial calls late in games seem to have all gone their way, but not last night. With just 28.7 seconds left in Game 3 of the NBA Finals, Madison Square Garden was alive with hope even though the Houston Rockets led, 89-88. Coming out of a timeout, the Knicks had the ball, and there seemed to be a feeling that they were on the verge of a dramatic triumph.

Seconds remained on the clock. Latrell Sprewell's voice, raspy from a combination of fatigue and adrenaline, managed to slice through the pandemonium of a vibrating Madison Square Garden and scream: "Get me the ball! Get me the ball!" He received a pass two feet from the rim, pump-faked, curled around a pair of towering defenders, and found no opening. With the clock ticking and without a clear view of the basket, he was forced to turn around, tilt backward, and toss the New York Knicks' destiny in the air. And when the sequence was over, after Tim Duncan and David Robinson had tipped his shot, warding off a Game 6 of the NBA Finals and giving the San Antonio Spurs their first NBA title, Sprewell had captured New York City.

The New York Knicks left the game hanging within the grasp of the Indiana Pacers last night, but then Hubert Davis snatched it back with aplomb. With 4 minutes and 8 seconds left, Indiana's Vern Fleming had cut New York's lead to two points, and the Madison Square Garden crowd was growing anxious. After all, the Pacers had won their previous two series openers on hostile courts. But after a timeout, Davis drilled a three-pointer like a player with much more than his two years of NBA experience.

A day removed from his worst outing as a basketball-playing adult, Patrick Ewing was loose and relaxed yesterday as he contemplated today's game in the NBA's Eastern Conference title series. Ewing, beset with fouls and a bit ruffled by the Indiana Pacers' quick and intense double-teaming, put only a single point on the scoreboard and got just four rebounds in Saturday's 88-68 setback. The Knicks scored the fewest points of any team in NBA playoff history. The Knicks still lead the best-of-seven series two games to one, and the fourth game of the set is often the most crucial, but Ewing fielded questions at yesterday's practice with a big, genuine smile.

Former Temple men's basketball star Rick Brunson pleaded not guilty Thursday morning to charges of criminal sexual assault, criminal sexual abuse, aggravated battery, and domestic battery after his arrest in an encounter at a suburban Chicago fitness center. The 42-year-old Brunson was the leading candidate to be Temple's next assistant men's basketball coach before his arrest in June. His son, Jalen Brunson, is the nation's No. 1 high school point guard, according to some recruiting websites, and one of Temple's top targets.

WE WERE watching the U.S. Open on TV yesterday afternoon when out of nowhere comes a shot of a groundhog, or gopher, or some such furry creature. That immediately made us think of "Caddyshack," which then made us think of Bill Murray. Who'da thunk they had rodents on the Main Line? Anyway, how cool would it be if Murray was at the Open? We can see him now, traipsing around in his Carl Spackler hat while eating a Baby Ruth and playing in a foursome with the Dalai Lama. On the 18th fairway, Murray pulls out a 1-iron while standing next to the famous Ben Hogan plaque.

The person spoke with the Associated Press yesterday on condition of anonymity because the hire has not yet been made official. The 50-year-old Ewing and Jordan were teammates on the 1992 USA Olympic "Dream Team" that won gold at the Barcelona Games.

Tony Parker scored 23 points, and the San Antonio Spurs completed their first-round sweep of the injury-plagued Lakers with a 103-82 victory in Game 4 on Sunday night in Los Angeles. Tim Duncan had 11 points and six rebounds for the second-seeded Spurs, who will face the winner of Denver's series with Golden State in the second round. They'll get plenty of rest after flattening the Lakers, who finished without three regular starters in their first opening-round exit since 2007. In his final game before unrestricted free agency, Dwight Howard scored seven points before getting ejected early in the third quarter for arguing.

Orlando Magic coach Stan Van Gundy loves having Patrick Ewing on his staff. He can't figure out why the New York Knicks don't want him. Van Gundy criticized the Knicks last night for failing to give Ewing, the franchise's career scoring leader, a coaching job in the organization. "I'm not trying to needle anybody or tell them their business," Van Gundy said after Orlando beat the Knicks, 106-102 behind a 29-point effort from Dwight Howard. "What's amazing is they honor the guy, I don't know, every year.

Patrick Ewing smiled during halftime as he watched the video board in Madison Square Garden roll a highlight of his Georgetown Hoyas winning the 1984 Big East title. Twenty-three years after that game, the former Georgetown great spent the second half of last night's game watching his son Patrick Ewing Jr. come a step closer to claiming another championship trophy for the Hoyas. A new name surely is joining the ranks of the Ewing surname at Georgetown, especially after last night, when Jeff Green led the top-seeded Hoyas past No. 4 Notre Dame, 84-82, to advance to tonight's Big East championship game against No. 3 Pittsburgh.

T.J. Ford became the first of this year's NBA first-round draft picks to sign, agreeing to a 4-year contract with the Milwaukee Bucks yesterday. The 6-foot point guard from Texas was the eighth overall selection in last Thursday's draft. He played two seasons with the Longhorns, leading the team last season in scoring, assists and steals. Terms of the contract were not disclosed but according to the 2002-03 NBA rookie scale, a 4-year deal for the No. 8 pick would be worth about $7 million.

Patrick Ewing joined the Houston Rockets as an assistant yesterday, reuniting the 11-time all-star with former New York Knicks coach Jeff Van Gundy. Van Gundy was Ewing's coach from 1995 to 2000 and one of his most ardent supporters. He was named coach of the Rockets last month, replacing Rudy Tomjanovich, who is receiving treatment for bladder cancer. The Rockets said in a statement that they have also hired former Knicks assistants Steve Clifford, Andy Greer and Tom Thibodeau.

Patrick Ewing in a Washington Wizards uniform, playing alongside Michael Jordan? It probably won't happen - but it could. Ewing, introduced yesterday as a Wizards assistant coach, said that if Washington needs an extra center during this season, he would consider playing, especially if owner Abe Pollin asked. "I'm here as an assistant coach. [But] if Mr. Pollin comes to me and says, 'Here's a 10-day [contract],' I wouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth," Ewing said. He retired Tuesday, ending his NBA career after 17 seasons, 15 with the New York Knicks.
