Scott Sparks Celtics CLEVELAND(AP)Charlie Scott had 'em "dancin 1 in Washington" Thursday night as he exploded for 30 points in Boston's 95-88 National Basketball Association victory over Cleveland. The Celtics, who came into the game with apparently little to kindle their competitive fire, took it to the Cavaliers arid knocked them right out of first place in the NBA Central Division. Cleveland went into the game with an .003 percentage point edge over the Washington Bullets. To the chagrin of a home throng of 19,392,^ Scott's 18-point, third-quarter barrage signaled the end of the Cavs' overnight stay on top. The Boston-Cleveland contest was the only game Thursday in the NBA. There were no American Basketball Association games scheduled. "Ain't that something," lamented Cleveland Coach Bill Fitch. "We're supposed to be happy this time of the year, with a playoff spot clinched. But they're dancing in Washington tonight. "If we don't win ^"'championship, we've made the . playoffs and we can get ready to do it all there. I told the players we could learn some things from tonight," Fitch said. Tom Heinsohn, Boston's coach, said the games now are still important to the Celtics — despite having clinched the Atlantic Division crown and being owners of by far the best percentage in the Eastern Conference. "We figure we owe it to everybody to play our best at this time of the season," Heinsohn said. "We're not gonna roll over and play dead for anybody. We owed it to Washington to try to do our best here, And we'll try to J!*jptheir tail, too, if we can." Time* Herald, Carroll, la. Friday, April 2, 1976 Scott was aided and abetted by Dave Cowens with 20 points and nine rebounds, John Havlicek with 17 points and 10 rebounds and Paul Silas with 14 rebounds. The Celtics out- boarded Cleveland 55-42. Campy Russell came'off the bench for 19 points to lead Cleveland, while Jimmy Clea- mons added 15 points, 11 in the third period. Scott, a lithe veteran guard, pumped in 12 of 19 field goal attempts and six of six free throws.'hitting eight of 10 from the field in the second half. He put the Celtics ahead with his third-period heroics, then put the icing on the cake on two quick baskets late in the game that gave Boston a 91-81 edge.

Mike Hcuton. Scott Forbes. Duanc Onken and Gay Tenold. Wiechers, Brewer Share Lead GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — Some '''pot luck" iron shots, a, brand-new putter and.some wet, shivering pickets were the first-round features in the $230.000 Greater Greensboro Open Golf Tournament. "The fairways were so muddy you were just playing pot luck out there," said big Jimmy Wiechers, who survived his difficulties Thursday with a five-under-par 66 that gave him a tie for the lead with old pro Gay Brewer. Brewer, using a new putter in competition for the first time, got his share of first place late in the cold, windy, cloudy, occasionally drizzly day with eagles on two of his last four holes. Included in their galleries — in the dismal weather that has become a fixture at this old tournament — were some shivering, placard-carrying NBC technicians who are on strike and were picketing the cameras that are scheduled to provide national television coverage of portions of the final two rounds Saturday and Sunday. The show will go on, NBC officials said. "I'm playing as good as I've ever played," insisted the slump-ridden, 44-year-old Brewer. "It's my putting and chipping that has held me back." So the gray-haired veteran, winner of 11 titles in a 20-year career, took the last two weeks off, went home to Palm Springs, Calif., and worked on his short game. He finally settled on a new model of an old standard club, brought it to Greensboro and, using it in competition for the first time, one-putted half the greens and holed five putts in the 20-25 foot range. Two of those were for the eagles that vaulted him past 19 players. Wiechers, who has yet to gain an official title in nine years of tour activity, said he'd been playing so poorly, "I'm still just trying to make the cut." They shared a one-stroke advantage over Dave Stockton, U.S. Open champ Lou Graham and Bob Payne, tied at 67. The group at 68, three under par on the wet, hilly, 6,643-yard Sedgefield Country Club course, were Lee Trevino, Kermit Zarley, Don Bies, DeWitt Weaver, Miller Barber and Allen Miller. Defending champion Tom Weiskopf headed a largo group at 69. Gary Player shot a 72 and 63-vear-old Sam Snead was at 73. OPEN SUNDAYS 1 to 5 WED. & FRI.
