For the fifth time in three rounds of the playoffs, local residents living within the 35-mile radius of San Antonio could not tune in to the game on television. Even those willing to pay for special home cable connection had no option. Fans will have to deal with the blackout again on Wednesday when the series resumes for Game 2 at the Alamodome. The blackout stems from an NBA rule that protects companies which purchase broadcast rights to the game. Paragon Cable of San Antonio bought the rights to air the game and has been charging its customers on a pay-per-view basis. The company, however, does not provide service to New Braunfels. The game could be seen on TNT by residents living outside the 35-mile radius.. TCI Cable of Texas Inc., the cable company which services New Braunfels, could negotiate with the Spurs organization and Paragon if it wanted to purchase the right to offer pay-per-view for area TCI customers. Lawrence Payne, Spurs vice president for broadcasting, said TCI had not approached the Spurs concerning a deal for broadcast rights during the playoffs. TCI officials said tney tried to contact the Spurs late Monday to obtain information about costs. "We left a message with the Spurs organization," said Viola Guerra, business manager of TCI. "We're looking into getting the rights to put Wednesday’s game on pay-per-view " Payne said working out a deal and figuring the technical aspects of pay-per-view broadcasting is a process that generally can not be accomplished on short notice. Officials (it Paragon, which is charging its customers $24.95 to get the game, could not be reached for comment. Though local Spurs fans have been unable to catch home playoff games for several weeks, some Rockets fans were experiencing the blackout for the first time. Jack Miscoe, a Houston fan who lives in New Braunfels, said the blackout left him uncertain about where or if he would be able to view the game. "I know this has been happening to Spurs fans in the playoffs, but Rockets fans don't go for that," Miscoe said. "The thing is, I'd be willing to pay the $25, hut I can't even do that because it's not available here. That's ridiculous." Miscoe planned to watch the game at either the Ice House or Watering Hole, the only two local businesses showing the game Monday night. Both places reported brisk business from fans willing to pay a $5 coverage which compensates for the pay-per-view fee. New Braunfels fans aren't the only ones in the blackout area who are left without the option of pay-per-view. Seguin also falls into that category. Some people living outside the 35-mile radius have reported being blacked out. Payne said he is aware of those fans' unfortunate situation but said they should contact their cable company about it. The 35-mile blackout radius originates from the courthouse in downtown San Antonio, but some resident living 42-miles from that point say they are being blacked out. K Rockets steal show in the Alamodome Fourth-quarter comeback gives Houston I-game edge over Spurs By BOB BAUM AP Sports Writer SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Almost always, the Houston Rockets win the last game of a playoff series. Now they’ve won the first one, too — on the road against a team that had 62 victories this season, five of them against Houston. The defending NBA champion Rockets, written off after finishing an unremarkable fifth in the West in the regular season, won Round I of the battle of Texas with a 94-93 victory over San Antonio on Monday night. The Rockets took a 1-0 lead over the Spurs in the best-of-7 Western Conference finals and took away the homecourt advantage San Antonio earned throughout the playoffs by compiling the best record in the NBA. Robert Horry’s wide-open 18-foot-er with 6.5 seconds to play gave Houston the victory. It was his first basket of the night. ‘This is the way we have been winning lately,” the Rockets’ Mario Elie said. “Like Hakeem said, we are a team of destiny.” After failing behind 2-1 in the first round against Utah and 3-1 in the conference semifinals against Phoenix, then coming back to win, the Rockets had played 11 games in 20 days. But winning has washed away any weariness. “Our battle cry right now is stay humble and stay hungry,” Houston coach Rudy Tomjanovich said. The Rockets went more than two minutes without a field goal until Horry, who was 0-for-4 to that point, hit his shot. “We swung it to the open man, just like we have all season,’’ Horry said. “I was surprised I was so open.

"It’s all about team chemistry.” Sean Elliott, who led the Spurs with 24 points, missed two free throws with 26.6 seconds to go and his shot from the lane with two seconds to go bounced off the nm.

But he never expected this: hitting .188 a month into the season. Although he’s shown signs in recent games of breaking out of his slump, the Astros first baseman still hasn’t returned to the hitting machine that made him the National League’s unanimous MVP last season. “What happens when you have problems is you want to get a hit so bad that you get anxious,” Bagwell said. "You try to hit the ball before it gets out of the pitcher’s hands.”Bagwe!l hit .368 during the strike-abbreviated 1994 season and led the league with 104 runs and 116 RBIs. He joined Orlando Cepeda in 1967 and Mike Schmidt in 1980 as the only NL players to earn unanimous votes for MVP.He became the first player since Carl Yastrzemski in 1967 to finish first or second in his league in average, runs, RBI, and homers.
