The 76ers were supposed to be like piranha in a stocked river last night. They weren't. Playing against a team they already had beaten twice this season, the Sixers didn't make the third time a charm. Giving credence to coach Larry Brown's claim that they could be beaten by any team on any given Sunday, they surrendered a pivotal 8-3 run in the closing minutes and a game-high 34 points to Stephon Marbury in a 96-89 loss to the New Jersey Nets at Continental Airlines Arena.

Three days earlier, the heroics and the praise of a packed house at the First Union Center had belonged solely to Allen Iverson. Last night, they were shared by Larry Hughes. The 76ers capitalized on a careless 10-second violation by the Nets in the game's waning moments when Hughes scored on a tip-in as the buzzer sounded, giving them an improbable 92-90 home-court victory in front of 18,636 fans. Iverson was electric again. In his first home game since his season-high 50-point performance against the Sacramento Kings on Sunday, he scored a game-high 41 points.

Stephon Marbury, a third-team all-American point guard as a Georgia Tech freshman, remains undecided about entering the June NBA draft, he said yesterday. Marbury, 19, was responding to a report in the New York Daily News quoting his brother, Don Jr., as saying Marbury had decided to go pro. Marbury's season ended last weekend when Georgia Tech was eliminated by Cincinnati in the NCAA tournament's Sweet 16. Marbury said he'd been thinking of nothing but the tournament and would make no decision for at least a week.

Carmelo Anthony scored 35 points, 12 in the third quarter when the game turned into a rout, and visiting Denver beat New York, 108-96, last night. Stephon Marbury scored 25 points for the Knicks, who have lost two straight and have the NBA's worst record at 17-45. Before the game, Knicks coach Larry Brown responded to Marbury's recent remarks that he needed to change his game and play more offensively. In comments that appeared in yesterday's New York Daily News, Marbury said he sacrificed his game for the sake of the team, but it didn't work out. "I went into this year trying to do something, to put myself in a situation where we can win, OK?"

Stephon Marbury had said in November that he would leave Georgia Tech for the NBA after his freshman year if he felt he would be one of the top five picks in the draft. Now Donald Marbury Jr., one of his three older brothers, says Stephon has made up his mind. "He's definitely coming out," Don Jr. told the New York Daily News last night. "He told me [Tuesday]. That's what he wants to do. " The Atlanta Journal-Constitution said in today's editions that Marbury planned to make the announcement next week in New York with his family present.

Go out near the tip of Coney Island, peer beyond the Verrazano Narrows Bridge and, on a clear day, you can see the skyscrapers above Wall Street and imagine Madison Square Garden in midtown Manhattan. Go near that tip of Coney Island on West 31st Street between Surf and Mermaid, look out from behind the blue window shade on the fourth floor of one of those garish, high-rise apartment buildings, part of the nine subsidized housing projects on Coney Island, and see what they call "The Garden.

She said she was not intoxicated when she left the club in Mount Vernon, N.Y., intending to get a ride home with Marbury's cousin.

Head coach Isiah Thomas conceded his New York Knicks had a bad week - on the court. But he dismissed the other turmoil surrounding his team, including the idea that he could follow Stephon Marbury as the next person around the Knicks to lose his job. He instead said yesterday that the Knicks have been close in many of their losses, and his only worry is finding ways to get them over the hump. "That's all we're really concerned about," Thomas said. Marbury was removed as the starting point guard last week, left the team and was fined for skipping a game at Phoenix.

WHEN WE first heard Stephon Marbury was starring in a musical in China titled "I Am Marbury," we briefly morphed into Tom McGinnis and let go with a lusty, "Are you kidding me?" The 37-year-old Marbury, it seems, is a megastar in China. Bigger than Jerry Lewis in France or David Hasselhoff in Germany. Heck, there's even a statue of the two-time NBA All-Star outside the MasterCard Center in Beijing where he led the Ducks to the Chinese Basketball Association title in March. The musical, which opened last night in Beijing and runs 11 days, is sold out for the first three shows.

A DAY AFTER clinching the NL East title, the fans of the Washington Nationals are celebrating another victory: Teddy Roosevelt winning the fourth-inning mascot race for the first time in 534 races. Dressed in a red Under Armour headband and Usain Bolt-like gold shoes, Roosevelt bobbed and weaved his way across the finish line for the win. Chants of "Teddy, Teddy" erupted as he ripped off his shirt to reveal a red shirt reading "Natitude. " But just like Nationals COO Andy Feffer and his "Take back the park" campaign, the race was infused with an anti-Phillies message.

A big trade deadline day has the New York Knicks in position for a bigger score in July. The Knicks acquired Tracy McGrady in a three-team deal and shipped Nate Robinson out in another trade, but the makeup of this season's roster is secondary. New York was able to trade Jared Jeffries in the McGrady deal, removing $6.9 million from next season's payroll and putting the Knicks on the verge of being able to offer two maximum salary contracts this summer, when LeBron James can headline the free-agent class.

The New York Knicks needed Stephon Marbury to play, then suspended him a game and docked him nearly $400,000 in salary yesterday after claiming he refused to enter the game. The disgruntled guard insists he never told coach Mike D'Antoni "No" and plans to appeal. Just another chapter in Marbury's turbulent tenure with his hometown team. D'Antoni wouldn't go into specifics of their conversation that took place before Wednesday's loss in Detroit, though he made it clear he asked the point guard to play because the Knicks were shorthanded.
