Seen and heard last night at First Union Center in Philadelphia:

CATCHING A BREAK: The Wizards didn't have to face the 76ers' full roster, not because of injury but because of surprise, surprise a Derrick Coleman transgression.

Coleman, who missed all of training camp and the early part of the season recovering from knee surgery, sat out the game while serving a one-game suspension for DUI earlier this year.
Coleman eventually will resume his position as the team's starting power forward.

SURPRISE, SURPRISE: Washington coach Doug Collins didn't know that Miami's 65 points in the Wizards' 30-point victory on Saturday was the lowest total in Heat history.

"No, no I didn't," said a surprised Collins. "I thought we played well, but I didn't know that we played that well."

LIMPING IN: Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb, who suffered a broken ankle against the Arizona Cardinals yesterday, stopped by the Wizards' locker room to talk with Michael Jordan before the game.

"That's an awful thing to happen to a guy like that," Collins said. "I know how big the Eagles are here and it's a tough loss."
