the games start at 7 Ailing Rockets set for playoffs Defending NBA champions right at home in underdog role against Lakers By MICHAEL GRACZYK Associated Press Writer twotime defending NBA champion Houston Rockets are hurting written off by some uncertain and without homecourt advantage as the playoffs begin this week In other words theyre right where they re used to being One of the characteristics Im not really happy about is were probably the best trench team in modem basket ball being pushed into the comer down in that coach Rudy Tonv janovich said as his team headed to Gal veston Monday for three days of preparation before Thursdays firstround playoff opener at the Los Angeles Lak ers Tomjanovich whose team averted elimination repeatedly a year ago en route to a second straight NBA crown said his goal would have been to avoid starting out from behind Lets not get down he said But right now because of injuries we re already in the foxhole just like last Injuries decimated the team begin ning at midseason leaving Hakeem Ola juwon Clyde Drexler Mario Elie Sam Cassell and Robert Hony the heart of last seasons title winner on the shelf Ive conditioned myself to come to the arena or to the practice floor not knowing what to Tomjanovich said All these things you just have to be NBA playoff pairings 8 Sacramento S EASTERN CONFERENCEf Lets not get down there But right now because of injuries were already in the foxhole just like last Rudy Tomjanovich prepared for and you deal with Houston finished the regular season Sunday with a victory over Phoenix to wind up 4834 Thats one game better than a year ago but 10 games off the pace of the 1994 championship team Still Tomjanovich thinks this years club is better with the addition of Mark Bryant who has given them toughness up front and Eldridge Recasner an addi tional outside shooting threat If were healthy Id say on paper you have to feel youre he says But talent and potential really means nothing in getting the prize The first year we didnt have an explosive offense We have more options now than we had on the first championship team Right now we have to get back to the team that does what it takes to Rangers9 scoring barrage a record By JAIME ARON AP Sports Writer ARLINGTON Texas AP Its far too early to tell whether the Texas Rangers hot start will lead to anything but some rather meaningless early season team records But no matter what happens the rest of this season Texas can always look back fondly at this past weekend when the Rangers reduced Baltimores pitching staff from the ALs best into batting practice fodder Texas scored 43 runs in rack ing up victories by scores of and 96 The Orioles ERA climbed from to as the Rangers hit 388 with 20 extrabase hits They had 10 home runs including two grand slams I never thought wed score this many runs against this said Dean Palmer who went 6forl 1 with four homers six runs scored and 11 RBIs in the series and on Monday was named the ALs player of the week We just werent leaving very many guys on base like we were earlier this season We cant keep this up for a full season but this team is going to score some The Rangers previous best scoring stretch was in 1987 with 45 runs in four games The threegame sweep was the third of the season for the Rangers who have baseballs best record at 135 despite los ing 124 Monday to Chicago Texas ended a fivegame winning streak and slipped to 11 2 at home Bad day for shortstop helps Astros past Giants By the Associated Press SAN FRANCISCO AP No excuses No sulking I just had a bad said San Francisco shortstop Shawon Dunston who made four errors on grounders as Houston defeated the Giants 118 on Monday night You make one then you dont want to have it hit at Dunston who missed eight starts in the past two weeks because of a strained left groin had never made more than two errors in a game before No major leaguer has made five errors in a game since 1911 Im going to be a man about said Dunston who also was involved in four of the Giants five double plays Im going to go home kiss my wife and kids and put them to In other games the Chicago White Sox consider themselves a good offensive club Their 260 team average showed oth erwise The American Leagues lUhranked hitting team broke out in a big way Monday night in a 124 victory over the Texas Rangers Danny Tartabull
