Cavs Dancing Their Way in Playoffs TImtt Herald, Carroll, to. Monday, April 26, 1976 8 By The Associated Press The Cleveland Cavaliers, dancing their way through the National Basketball Association playoffs, are doing the hustle the way it's supposed to be done. And if they keep it up tonight, they'll hustle high-powered Washington right off the court and step into the semifinals. The Cavaliers, in the playoff for the first time in their six- year history, lead the Bullets 3-2 in the best-of-seven series, thanks to dashing Dick Snyder, who ran into foul trouble but still managed to run up 26 points in Cleveland's fifth-game victory Thursday night, a 92-91 squeaker. In tonight's other quarter-final playoff, the Golden State Warriors, the NBA's defending champions and the winningest team in the league this season, take a 2-1 lead into Game Four in Detroit. The Warriors ran away from the Pistons in the fourth period last Saturday and won 113-96. In Sunday's two playoffs, Buffalo beat Boston 98-93 for its first victory in three games against the Celtics and Seattle stayed alive with a 114-108 victory over Phoenix. The Suns lead 3-2 in that series, which resumes Tuesday night in Phoenix. Boston is at Buffalo again Wednesday night. The Warriors figure to stick with their winning formula against Detroit — smothering Pistons' center Bob Lanier. He had 23 points and 16 rebounds in Saturday's game — but only six points and three rebounds in the second half. "They were double and triple teaming me in the second half," Lanier said. "We had the open shots but weren't hitting them and that's a 15-foot shot, the kind a professional team should make." Phil Smith led Golden State with 34 points and Jamaal Wilkes, who had just two points in the first three quarters, added 15 in the final period. Randy Smith scored 29 points and and Bob McAdoo added 24 for Buffalo in Sunday's victory over Boston, but both said Ernie DiGregorio deserved the credit. "He got everyone moving," McAdoo said, and Smith said: "He gave me some good passes, and when Ernie's moving the ball like that, it's tough for any team in the league to beat us." Bruce Seals' 28 points. 14 in the final period, and Fred Brown's 21 led Seattle past the Suns. Phoenix, which had managed a 61-61 tie early in the second half, was then outscored 10-2 by the SuperSonics and never recovered. Sports Glances Linus Goblirsch Have fanners done anything for you lately? Probably not. At least, not since your last meal. Figures .developed by researchers with the USDA indicate that American farmers' production last year was high enough that each man farming produced enough to feed 57 people. In the European Common Market countries one farmer produced enough to feed 23 other people, the average of all developed countries was less than half the productivity in the U.S. and in Russia the average farmer' produced enough to feed only about 8 others. Not only is the American productivity important in keeping us all well fed (most too well) it's also significant in that it allows 96 out of every 100 people to work in areas outside food production. That makes possible the production of the wide variety of goods and services which constitute our unparalleled living standard. Keep it up farmers!

Tight Finish The wire at Agua Caliente race track in Mexico looked like a merry-go-round with four horses across in the llth race Sunday. NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A nasty, testing little three-foot putt on the final hole nailed down the victory for Larry Ziegler. But the happy-go-lucky guy actually won the New Orleans Open with four strokes of the wedge earlier in the week. "I chipped in four times for, the week — twice on Thursday and twice on Saturday," Ziegler said after he'd holed that last tough putt Sunday for a 70 and a one-stroke decision over Victor Regalado. "That's a difference of maybe eight strokes. That's what won the golf tournament. You can go for two months without chipping in, and then I do it four times in a week. Those four strokes were really the difference." But those four strokes didn't ease the pressure of the last one. Ziegler, who'd started the final round with a two-stroke lead, held the advantage throughout the warm, sunny day but saw it cut to a single shot by Regalado's six-foot birdie putt on the 16th hole. He still led by one when he stood in the middle of the 18th green. Regalado had just finished his regulation, two-putt par and had his 13 under par total safely recorded. Now Ziegler. a 10-year journeyman, needed to get down in two from 25 feet to score only his third victory. He lagged up his first putt, and it stopped some three feet short. "The crowd went, 'ohhhh, ahhhh.' They were telling me something. They were telling me I'd left it short and I was in trouble, but, hell, I knew that." he said. As he surveyed that tough one "my heart was in overtime," he said. "I just told myself, 'Go ahead and hit it—the worst you can do is miss it.'" But Ziegler made it, finishing off a 274 total, 14 under par on the 7,080-yard Lakew.ood Country Club course. Regalado's closing 69 left him one stroke back at 275. British Open champion Tom Watson matched the course ' record with a 64 that lifted him into third place at 276. Watson, however, started the final round eight shots back and never really got in the title hunt. Jack Nicklaus shot himself out of it early in the day. He flailed away to a double bogey seven — his third double bogey in nine holes, going back to Saturday's third round — was six shots back and never really recovered. He finished with a 69 and 278 along with defending champion Billy Casper, Jim Colbert, Lee Elder, Gene Littler and Gibby Gilbert. Gilbert and Littler had closing 68s, Colbert. Casper and Elder 70s. Hubert Green matched par 72 as the playing partner of Ziegler and Regalado and was at 279. , Honor Famous Son Guilford, Vt, on Sunday honored its most famous son, 20-year-old Nordic ski champion Bill Koch.
