In Pat Riley's perfect basketball world, there would be no need for reserves. The Laker coach would have five players, conditioned physically and mentally, to play 48 minutes a game for 82 games, and he would be satisfied. It is not that Riley dismisses the advantages of depth displayed last season by the NBA champion Detroit Pistons. It is simply that Riley has long believed that using too many players can dilute the product, adversely affect his team's delicate balance.

A trade can't be judged on one game, but after Friday night's meeting between the Washington Bullets and the Denver Nuggets at Landover, Md., it looks like "advantage, Denver". Jay Vincent scored 33 points, matching his season high, and Michael Adams had 12 points and 10 assists as the Nuggets handed Washington a 124-109 defeat. Vincent and Adams were traded by the Bullets to Denver on Nov. 2, in exchange for Mark Alarie and Darrell Walker, now on the injured list.

The NBA playoffs are no time for the faint-hearted -- for players who tighten up when emotions run high. Nor is it a time for pouting about playing time, and Jay Vincent has no intention of complaining about his off-the-bench role as the Washington Bullets prepare to open the playoffs tonight against the Detroit Pistons in Pontiac, Mich. A career 17-points-per-game scorer, Vincent has been accustomed to starting.

Earvin Johnson had only one nickname--Junior--when he first met Jay Vincent back in the third grade in Lansing, Mich. So Johnson, perhaps as much as anyone, knows the potential talent of the enigmatic Vincent, signed Sunday by the Lakers to bolster bench scoring. "Jay can play," Johnson said. "I know that. He can do a lot of things. Even when he was having problems with those other teams, when he played, he played well."

The Nuggets have an 18-3 record in McNichols Arena, including a 115-113 victory over the Lakers on Jan. 21. Jay Vincent came off the Denver bench in that game to score a team-high 23 points with 12 rebounds.

Jay Vincent is back. Vincent, the Washington Bullet forward who has been sidelined this season after tearing a tendon in his right ring finger in the Bullets' first exhibition game last October, made his first appearance of the 1986-87 National Basketball Assn. season Tuesday night against the Clippers. Vincent came off the bench to score 23 points as the Bullets beat the Clippers, 112-97, before 8,139 fans at the Capital Centre. "I wanted to come back and have a pretty good game," Vincent said.
