Tim Legler sank two free throws with five seconds remaining to put the game out of reach as the Philadelphia Spirit ran its unbeaten streak to six games with a 101-96 win over the Long Island Surf last night. The Spirit led, 99-96, when Lloyd Daniels launched a three-pointer with eight seconds left that would have tied the game. It missed, and Legler then put the game away with his foul shots. Roy Marble led the Spirit with 28 points. Legler had 17, including 14 in the first half.

Sometimes the stats lie. The stats from the rookie all-star game showed Houston's Matt Maloney shooting 2-for-10 with five points, the lowest total of any starter for either team. "I deserved to be here, I belonged in this game," said Maloney, the Rockets' point guard from Haddonfield, N.J., and Penn. "I always believed I could play in the league. When I was the last cut of Golden State last season, that proved it to me. I was there five weeks. I knew it was a reachable goal.

Tim Legler scored 27 points, including two free throws with 7.3 seconds left, as the Spirit held off a furious rally by the New Haven Skyhawks and took a 113-108 United States Basketball League victory. The Spirit, which never trailed, held an 85-69 lead after three quarters before the Skyhawks scored the first 11 points of the final period. New Haven closed to within three, 111-108, on a three-pointer by Daren Rowe (21 points) with 10 seconds remaining, before Legler hit his game-clinching foul shots.

Paul "Snoopy" Graham came off the bench to score 35 points and pace the Philadelphia Spirit to a 123-116 victory over the Long Island Surf in the United States Basketball League opener for both teams. The Spirit trailed, 59-53, at the half, but pulled ahead in the third period and led by as many as 13 points midway through the final quarter. Long Island closed to within 118-116 with 34 seconds remaining, but Michael Anderson hit a jumper with 12 seconds left, and Dallas Comegys stole the Surf's subsequent inbounds pass.

Six technical fouls, one flagrant, 10 ties, 10 lead changes, a lot of trash talking and a playoff atmosphere. In most respects it was like any Knicks-Nets game, except this one had a new dimension, Keith Van Horn. The rookie scored 16 of his 29 points in a fourth-quarter show that co-starred Sherman Douglas as the New Jersey Nets defeated the visiting New York Knicks, 103-98, last night. "Did you see him in the fourth quarter? Did you see him drain those threes? That kid is a superstar," Nets center Jayson Williams said.

It was time to start the first home game in the history of the Philadelphia Spirit at Holy Family College last night, but game times can be negotiable things. The owner of the new United States Basketball League franchise smiled and mentioned to the team's general manager that there was no rush, that people were still entering the gym. Some were probably Michael Anderson's relatives. "I've got my mom and pop, nieces, nephews, friends," said Anderson, ticking off the guest list for his first home appearance as a pro since he played for the the USBL's Philadelphia Aces in the summer of 1988 after finishing a stellar career at Drexel.

It could have been a comfortable win. Instead, it was a thriller. Keith Braxton figures that was better for the Delsea High School boys' basketball team. "This was good for us," Braxton said after Delsea's 59-54 victory over Wildwood Catholic Monday at the Claude Kinnard MLK Classic at Paulsboro. Braxton, a 6-foot-3 senior forward, generated 19 points with 12 rebounds, five steals and four assists for Delsea (8-3), the No. 15 team in The Inquirer Top 20. Junior guard Kaleb Morton scored 15 and his brother, senior forward Kwame Morton, added 13 points and nine rebounds as the Crusaders won their sixth game in a row. Sophomore guard Trey Smith scored 14 and sophomore guard Ryan Legler, the son of former La Salle and NBA player Tim Legler, added 13 for Wildwood Catholic (9-3)

WHEN TIM Legler heard about Saturday's La Salle-Temple ESPN broadcast from the Palestra, he knew he wanted to be part of it. The ESPN NBA analyst, a 1988 La Salle graduate who got his master's at Penn's Wharton School, made a few phone calls and, just like that, he was on board as the color man with John Saunders for the telecast, which will immediately follow "College GameDay" from the Palestra. "It's going to be awesome," Legler said. "The tie-in on both sides, obviously being very close to La Salle to John [Giannini]

There is no shame in Middle Township captain Katy Sudell's game, but she will say it out loud: Until this year, she was used to being mediocre. Why not? The Panthers were 16-9 two years ago, and 13-10 last season. Not great, not bad, just . . . middling. Sudell never thought her basketball team would win 20 games, which is exactly what the Panthers did when they finished the regular season with a 61-27 rout at Cherry Hill East. She never anticipated that the seventh-seeded Panthers would head into a wide-open South Jersey Group 3 playoff bracket as one of the favored teams, as they will be tomorrow night when they play Lower Cape May at home.

Troy Walters, an all-American receiver, dislocated his right wrist in practice and will not play for Stanford against Wisconsin in Saturday's Rose Bowl. Walters won the Biletnikoff Award as the nation's top wide receiver after catching 74 passes for 1,456 yards and 10 touchdowns this season. He is Stanford's first first-team all-American since 1991. Walters also was the Pacific Ten player of the year and a first-team academic all-American. He set four Pac-10 receiving records and six Stanford receiving records during his career.

His face was flush, his jersey was soaked with sweat, and Penn State guard Joe Crispin still was firing away from three-point land. Crispin's quick-as-a-blink release sent one ball after another through the net, yet the former Pitman great didn't allow for so much as a grin. It wasn't extra shooting practice as much as it was a release of anger for what he said was a subpar showing in the preceding two hours of drilling. The competitive fire that kept Crispin firing Monday is the main reason why NBA veteran Tim Legler regularly makes the hour drive from his summer home in Avalon to Rowan University's recreation center.

Tim Legler intends to be in New York today, across the bargaining table from the NBA owners. The Washington Wizards shooting guard and former La Salle University star insists he is very much in line with his colleagues in the National Basketball Players Association in their attempt to get a fair and equitable contract and end the lockout that has been in place since July 1. But he is as frustrated and angry as any of the roughly 400 members...

The Los Angeles Lakers will embark on what they hope is a championship run, but they will have to start without star center Shaquille O'Neal. The team's leading scorer, rebounder and shot-blocker was ruled out of Friday's season opener at The Forum against the defending Western Conference champion Utah Jazz. Team doctor Stephen Lombardo made the determination after examining O'Neal's strained abdominal muscles yesterday. "He is making progress, but the injury's not healed yet," team spokesman John Black said.
