John Stockton gave the Toronto Raptors a lesson in more than merely basketball Monday night. While a lack of composure cost the Raptors three technical fouls in the last two minutes, Stockton was a study in skill and steadiness in leading the Utah Jazz to a 103-100 victory at Toronto. Stockton, who had 29 points and 12 assists, including a key feed to Adam Keefe with five seconds remaining, said he'll take the victory any way he can get it. "This was an important win on the road," Stockton said.

* Season series--Indiana, 2-1. * Story line--You have to give credit to the Knicks for pluck and their performance in Game 5 in Miami, to Coach Jeff Van Gundy for holding them together, as well as not getting stepped on, and to Larry Johnson for his play, even before his hockey-goon elimination of the other side's star.

After saying last week that he would take "the full eight [exhibition] games" to determine a starting lineup, Clipper Coach Mike Dunleavy indicated Thursday that he might need even more time. In fact, on a night when the Lakers unveiled their star-studded starting five for the first time in a 107-101 exhibition loss to the Clippers at the Arrowhead Pond, Dunleavy said he probably would not have a set lineup when the Clippers open the regular season next week, nor anytime soon.
