Bullets Last To Fill NBA Playoff Field Bv ASSOCIATCD PRISS The Washington Bullets com pleted the field for the National Basketball Association playoffs on the last day of the regular season by beating the New Jersey Nets, 93-87, Sunday. The victory gave the Bullets a 39-43 record, the same as the New York Knicks. Washington advanced to the playoffs for the 12th year in a row because of a better record against Eastern Conference foes. In another playoff development, the Houston Rockets gained the homecourt advantage for their first-round series against San Antonio by beating the Indiana Pacers, 121-106. The Spurs outscored Detroit, 144-124, to tie Houston at 41-41, but Houston got the edge because of a better intra-conference record. Both Eastern Conference first-round series begin Wednesday night, with Washington at Philadelphia and San Antonio at Houston. The second game of each series will be played Friday night, with the third game, if necessary, scheduled for Sunday. Boston and Atlanta drew first-round byes because they won their division titles. Boston will meet the San Antonio-Houston winner while Atlanta will take on the survivor of Washington-Philadelphia . After the first round, all playoff series are best of seven. Because of a compacted schedule, the playoffs this season will end no later than May 18 two to three weeks earlier than in recent seasons. Although all six Western Conference playoff teams were determined by midweek, the pairings were uncertain until the night games. Seattle needed a victory over Portland to finish with the third-best record in the conference. Phoenix could achieve a tie if it beat San Diego while Seattle lost, and the Suns would win out in the tie-breaking process because of a 4-2 advantage in head-to-head meetings. Whoever finished ahead would meet Portland in the first round of the playoffs, with the other club taking on Kansas City. Los Angeles and Milwaukee drew first-round byes as division winners in the West.
