In the only other game, San Francisco rode by Cincinnati 106-101 in Cleveland behind Nate Thurmond and Rudy LaRusso. In the American Basketball Association's only contest, Los Angeles stopped Houston 123-94 in Los Angeles. Phoenix, playing at home, was leading the Celtics by three points after three quarters when Boston made its big noise. John Havlicek was the loudest with three baskets in the spurt, and then Emmette Bryant hit several long jump shots to keep the sound resounding in the Suns' ears. Havlicek and teammate Bailey Howell finished with 17 points each in the defensive struggle, while Dick Van Arsdale had 22 for the Suns. Thurmond scored 24 points and took on 23 rebounds for San Francisco, which used LaRusso's basket in the second! period to go ahead to stay 50-49 and a 13-1 spree at the end of the third quarter for an 89-73 spread. LaRusso totaled 25 points. Os- Utah Rips Conn. Santa Clara Bumps Okla.
