Rolando Blackman knows who the New York Knicks are supposed to turn to in a pinch--and it isn't him. Blackman was the hero anyway Sunday at Charlotte, N.C., making a 20-foot shot with 5.4 seconds left to give the Knicks a 94-92 victory over the Charlotte Hornets and a 3-1 lead in their Eastern Conference semifinal series. "The play was to find Patrick," Blackman said, referring to center Patrick Ewing. "And then when Patrick can't get it, then he finds all the rest of us helpers."

With a place in the National Basketball Assn.'s Western Conference championship series in Dallas' sights, it was Rolando Blackman, not high-scoring Mark Aguirre, who got the ball in the clutch. Blackman scored nine consecutive points in the fourth period to lead the Mavericks to a 108-95 victory over the Denver Nuggets Thursday night. "I wanted the ball in my hands," Blackman said. "I live for those situations.

Rolando Blackman should be getting excited about returning to New York, where he moved from Panama when he was 7. On Tuesday, he will stop by Rolando Blackman Park in Brooklyn, see old friends, then play the Knicks, the team he idolized during his childhood. He knows, however, that despite the Mavericks' recent record -- five consecutive victories and 12 victories in their last 14 games prior to Thursday night's game at Milwaukee -- a lot is missing: Excitement. Fear. Respect.

How good would the Dallas Mavericks have been if Mark Aguirre and Roy Tarpley had played to their potential? Maverick All-Star Rolando Blackman said: "With a scorer like Mark in a good mood and ready to play, with Roy Tarpley next to him, we could have been one of the top four basketball teams in the league. "But with us, it's been like a soap opera. When you talk about us, it's not that we have a six-game winning streak, it's who's missing and who's not, who wants this and who wants that.

You wouldn't know it when he brags about having brought something new to the Midwest, as if the basketball public in Indiana has been deprived all these years, and he still wears his sunglasses inside, but Reggie Miller has toned down the act. He now prefers to let his game do the talking, although he still willingly provides additional commentary. Eastern Conference coaches apparently have been listening.

Maurice Lucas rarely does anything quietly on the basketball court. Quiet is not Lucas' style. In fact, the most frequent noise involved in his game is the sound of a referee's whistle. You can often hear Lucas slap the ball when he gets a rebound for the Lakers. Or you can hear him slap another player's arm so loud and hard that the fans in the first 10 rows get sympathetic bruises.
