Chick Hearn, having missed only his second half of basketball in more than 35 years, said Wednesday night he expected to broadcast Friday night's game in Los Angeles, his 3,273rd in a row. Referring to Joseph Sugarman, his Beverly Hills physician, Hearn said, "I think he'll have me ready. He's a magician." Hearn awoke Wednesday morning with laryngitis. A local doctor and nurse tended to Hearn for much of the day, beginning at 7:30 a.m.

Since then, the Lakers have won 2,092 games and eight National Basketball Assn. championships. But tonight, for the first time in 36 years and 3,338 consecutive games, Hearn won't be there. He's been sidelined by open-heart surgery.
