Webber's Bullets Winless

NEW YORK -- So far, the stunning trade that sent Golden State's Chris Webber to Washington for Tom Gugliotta and three first-round draft picks hasn't done wonders for either the Warriors or the Bullets.


The Warriors needed overtime Tuesday night to beat the NBA's worst team, and the Bullets are still winless with Webber.


"It's embarrassing," Webber said. "It's more embarrassing to us than to the fans and the media. It's like somebody holding a piece of candy in front of you when you're hungry."


Webber had 21 points and 11 rebounds in Washington's 99-91 loss to New York. His old team defeated the winless Los Angeles Clippers 127-124 in overtime, with Gugliotta getting 11 points and 11 rebounds in 36 minutes.


Before their victory, the Warriors were 2-4 since the Nov. 17 deal, while the Bullets have lost six straight, four since Webber joined the team.


In other games, it was the Los Angeles Lakers 129, New Jersey 120 in double overtime; Sacramento 94, Miami 89; Charlotte 90, Atlanta 85; Phoenix 123, Milwaukee 106; Dallas 84, Minnesota 83; Houston 96, Denver 81; and Utah 105, Portland 94.


Patrick Ewing, playing with a sore right knee, had 20 points and 15 rebounds against the Bullets despite picking up his fourth foul.


Two free throws by Charles Oakley a minute later gave New York its biggest lead, 75-57. Then Bullets reserve guard Mitchell Butler directed a 16-0 run,deficit to 75-73.


But Ewing returned to stabilize the Knicks' inside game and give New York its 16th victory over the Bullets in 17 meetings.
