Golden State's Latrell Sprewell is not the first player to mix it up with his coach: 1993: Indiana basketball coach Bob Knight appeared to kick one of his players on the bench. The player . happened to be his son, Patrick. 1985: New York Yankees Billy Martin's most famous altercation occurred in a hotel bar in Baltimore with Ed Whitson. Martin came out of the affair with a broken right arm. 1980: Dave Bristol, then manager of the San Francisco Giants, got into a clubhouse scuffle with John Morrtesfusco. The pitcher wound up with a black eye, the manager with a scratch on his face. 1979: Frank Kush had a 176-54-1 record at Arizona State from 1958-79 but was was fired Oct. 13, 1979, over allegations that he had punched punter Kevin Rutledge in a 1978 game and tried to cover it up. 1978: Ohio State coach Woody Hayes was dismissed after the Gator Bowl when he slugged Clemson linebacker Charlie Bauman. 1977: Texas Rangers second baseman Lenny Handle confronted manager Frank Lucchesi after Lucchesi decided to start Bump Wills at second base. The manager wound up with a broken jaw and the infielder was suspended 30 days and fined $23,407. 1969: When Billy Martin was managing the Minnesota Twins, he and pitcher Dave Boswell went after each other. Boswell wound up with 50 stitches. 25 24 28 20-97 16 20 22 27 -67 Chicago Boston Philadelphia 17 26 29 18-90 Miami 24 23 23 22-94 A 14,312 (15,200). T 2:11.

And it's been over a month or so now, and I just couldn't take the verbal abuse that he's been giving all the guys over the past month or so." Sprewell was suspended for at least 10 games following his attack on Carlesimo during practice Monday. He sat out the first game Wednesday night as the Warriors hosted the Cleveland Cavaliers. Sprewell grabbed Carlesimo by the throat, reportedly threatened to kill him and landed a glancing punch to his neck in two separate confrontations about 15 minutes apart. Billy Hunter, the head of the players association, was at the Philadelphia-Miami game Wednesday and said he had had an hour conversation with Sprewell on Tuesday and spoke with Sprewell's agent, Arn Tellum, for two hours before Wednesday's game. Carlesimo was given a standing ovation by a few fans Wednesday night during pre-game introductions in the half-empty Oakland Arena. Brian Shaw started in place of Sprewell. It was just the second start Sprewell has missed this season the other came Nov. 12, three days after Sprewell was benched for laughing in a team huddle while the Warriors were being blown out by the Los Angeles Lakers. Sprewell smiled frequently as he talked with a television crew at his home in the Hayward Hills area south of Oakland. It was his first public comment since the confrontation Monday. "It's not just myself, we have other players on the team that he has also verbally abused, and as well as other teams in the past, so it just got to a point where I couldn't take it any more," Sprewell said. "Basically, after a lot of verbal abuse by P.J. over about a month or so, we got in a physical altercation, as he would call it." The suspension would cost Sprewell fouls: None.

Carlesimo, the three-inch scar on his neck starting to heal, said he won't even guess at Sprewell's future. "I don't know the answer to this," he said. "I've stopped trying to figure out what's going to happen." One thing that could happen is a trade. The Warriors were continuing their efforts to trade Sprewell, although general manager Garry St. Jean acknowledged some teams may have been scared off by the attack. 3 1 20 15 27 - 93 26 22 18 23-69 Seattle New Jersey 29 24 24 30-107 25 21 24 19- 89 L.A.

Majerle even had an exchange with Jerry Stack-house late in the game on a play in which Majerle was called for an offensive foul. Majerle, though, complained that Stackhouse pushed him in his tender back and let Stackhouse know as they met at center court. The two received double technicals. Stackhouse had eight of the 76ers' 22 turnovers. Philadelphia was led by Allen Iverson, who had 21 points on 10-of-19 shooting. Last season, Iverson shot 7-of-43 (.163) against Miami. Miami stretched the lead to nine points late in the game before Philadelphia took advantage of poor free-throw shooting by the Heat, something that has been uncharacteristic this year. In the last 31 seconds, Miami missed 5-of-8 free throws. "We can't get satisfied when we get a big lead," HEAT From 1C by design, Murdock said: "They weren't saying, 'We've got to get Eric Murdock off.' It just was in the flow of the game." Hardaway, who scored 20 points and added 11 assists, appreciates Murdock's contributions. "I'm just happy he's here," said Hardaway, whose minutes are down slightly from his 38.7 per game a year ago mainly because of Murdock. Murdock and Dan Majerle split the shooting guard duties as Voshon Lenard missed the game to give his sprained left ankle another day's rest. Majerle received the start, his first of the season. Although his line was modest seven points, eight rebounds in a season-high 36 minutes Majerle's hustle helped the Heat main Murdock said. "We get a big lead and we take quick shots that we would not take in a close game. We have got to learn to finish off teams." B Noteworthy: Stack-house, the subject of trade rumors all season, thinks he'll be dealt soon, and would like to come to Miami, "If it happens, I don't think there would be a better choice (than Miami)," Stack-: house said. "I like the way they play." Stackhouse, though, is a free agent this summer and any team inter: ested in acquiring him must be sure they can re-sign him! Stackhouse said he'd take less to play for a winner, "Sometimes you sacrifice money," he said. "If you can make $30 million and play for a bad team or $20 million and play for a team with a chance to win a championship, I'd take the $20 million. Who's going to spend all that money anyway." 1 FG FT Reb UTAH Min M-A M-A O-T APFPts Keefe 30 3-8 I I 6-11 I 2 7 Malone 35 11-19 I S 6-15 4 3 23 Foster 18 410 0-0 4-4 0 3 6 Hornacek 28 6-11 33 0-3 8 1 15 Eisley 23 2-2 2-2 0-0 6 2 6 Vaughn 22 3 7 2-3 0-2 3 2 8 Anderson 24 6-10 2-3 4-5 3 1 18 Ostertag 12 2-3 3-4 1-5 0 2 7 Russell 28 6-11 4-6 2-5 5 3 19 Carr II 0 I 4-40-2 0 4 4 Morris 5 01 0-0 1-3 0 0 0 Hudson 4 0-3 0-0 0-1 0 0 0 Player, team G FG FT PTS AVG.
