Pitino debunks Knicks deal PHOENIX, Ariz. (AP) - Providence College basketball coach Rick Pitino denies published reports that he is set to become the new head coach of the NBA's New York Knicks and says he knows. how the story got started. - An article in Rhode Island's 1 Providence Journal-Bulletin said the Knicks had offered Pitino a five-year deal worth up to $3.2 million. ' . . "There's no truth to it at alL Pitino said Thursday. "Ill tell you what happened. The beat writer who has covered us the last two years called me up at the hotel here and said he had it from two sources that the Knicks had offered me the contract I told him there was no truth to it and the best source is me, but they ran the story anyway." Rick Pitino Emits mark NBA playoffs By Associated Press While the Lakers were annihilating the Nuggets and Dallas .was beating Seattle, the other two playoff openers were played a bit closer. Boston edged Chicago 108-104 and Utah defeated Golden State 99-85 in the Warriors' first playoff game in 10 years. In tonight's series openers, it's Indiana at Atlanta, Washington at Detroit Philadelphia at Milwaukee and Houston at Portland. . Nine Dallas players scored in double figures in their 151-129 rout of Seattle, led by Mark Aguirre with 28 points. "I knew the game was over after four minutes,' Coach Dick Motta said. "We were very intense. We were real serious. We had practiced that way during the week." Motta said the lifting of the Maver icks first-ever Midwest Division championship banner to the rafters shortly before the game got the team fired up. "It got 'em real emotional,". Motta said. "We want Seattle to know we are better. Seattle is very capable of giving us trouble if we dont pay attention." Celtics 108, Bulls 104 Boston led by as many as 21 points in the first half, but needed a 12-foot jumper with 37 seconds left to beat Chicago and win its 30th consecutive home game. A 19-5 spurt by the Bulls tied the game 100-100 after they trailed 95-81 with 7:37 left After an exchange of points tied the score 104-104 in the final minute, Parish's shot from the lane put the Celtics ahead for good. Michael Jordan, who scored 35 points, was triple-teamed on Chicago's next pos session, and he was forced to pass to Brad Sellers, who was standing out of bounds. The turnover with 19 seconds left forced the Bulls to foul Dennis Johnson, and his two free throws 10 seconds later clinched the outcome. Jazz 99, Warriors 85 i Utah spoiled Golden State's first-piay-off appearance in 10 years as Karl Ma-lone and Thurl Bailey scored 20 points each and Mark Eaton had 15 rebounds. Jazz Coach Frank Layden said a 56-46 rebounding advantage was the key to the victory. ' ' "We're probably the worst rebounding team in the history of the world, but tonight we were grabbing the ban," -Layden said. - The Jazz led 89-72 with 6:03 leftine game, but an 11-0 spurt by the Warriors got them within six. . : , - - From NBA: against the Lakers all season. They're down 1-0 in the series and surviving only on a heart-lung machine. They don't keep records on such things, but I can assure you that garbage time started immediately after the national anthem Thursday night Believe it or not the game actually began with that same Magic Johnson missing two foul shots. Too close, I guess, at a mere 15feet If Johnson's' heave proved anything, it's that the Lakers have the Magic touch. And the Forum is Magic's Kingdom. Whatever the Lakers need done, Magic will do it even if it means pulling rabbits out of hat or hats out of a rabbit Looking for a little humor on a bleak night Moe said of Jchnson's shot: "Magic told me it was going in when it left his hand." On the contrary, nobody in the building thought the shot was going in, although Magic did say that he noticed the trajectory of the ball was "right on line." , When those kind of shots go in, you almost feel like apologizing. Because no man can stand back there from 80 feet and throw a basketball with any reasonable expectation of coming close to the rim, let alone making it ..- "I just got it and shot it" he saiiMt was straight And it went in. J was lucky." s Somebody in the post-game press conference wanted to know if the 80-footer was symbolic of Magic's season, which has been spectacular enough to warrant an MVP lock. Johnson didn't care for the comparison. "The season wasn't lucky," he said. "The shot was lucky." '.. Except for those (hree points, there was nothing lucky, either, about the way the Lakers dismembered the Nuggets..-, Spring game rosters Red squad 1. Tony Avant, split end; 2.
