The halftime lead was the Tar Heels' largest of the game and was equaled several times, including 70-52 with less than two minutes to play on two foul shots by forward Matt Doherty, who scored 15 points. Jordan hit only two of 12 shots and scored eight points while Perkins was one of 11 for six. him. "It starts preying on your mind after a while," said Lynam after the Clippers ended a lOVa-month string of losses away from home with a 110-95 victory over the Houston Rockets Tuesday night. "We were very, very aware of it," said Lynam, who is in his first year as a National Basketball Association coach. "It's something you read about all the time. It hinders your ability to play with confidence. It's like you're waiting for something bad to happen." Forward Terry Cummings: and guard Norm Nixon made something good happen against the Rockets by scoring 28 points apiece. The-Clippers, whose last previous road victory was a 112-102 triumph at Golden State on Feb. 17, were three short of the record of 32 consecutive road losses over two seasons by the 1953-54 Washington Bullets.' City 109; Utah in, Golden State 102 and Los Angeles 118, Denver 116. Houston jumped to an ll-i lead, but the Clippers fought back for a 27-24 edge at the end of the first quarter as Nixon scored 10 points. In the second period, Cummings responded with 15 points and grabbing 10 rebounds as the Clippers built a 58-42 advantage. Cummings, who finished with 19 rebounds, called the streak "just one of those things. I think what bothered me was that we had such a good record at home (9-4) and then we go out on the road and have such a bad record. The streak didn't matter that much to me." San Diego carried a 90-66 bulge into the last period. The Rockets, who got 14 points apiece from Wally Walker and Lewis Lloyd, made up nine points in the fourth quarter, but couldn't get close -enough to threaten the Clippers. Like Cummings, Nixon said the team's 10-20 overall record was more troubling to him than the losing streak on the road. "Getting the win was the big thing to me," said Nixon, who played on two championship teams with the Los Angeles Lakers. "Losing is the thing that kills me. It works on my mind. It's not that we're losing on the road, it'? that we're losing. We've got to stop losing." Jazz ill, Warriors 102 Utah won at Golden State for its seventh straight victory as Darrell Griffith scored 27 points, including the Jazz' first 11 of the fourth period. The Warriors, who got 25 points from Joe Barry Carroll, led by seven early in the final period before the Jazz rallied. Adrian Dantley scored 22 points and Mark Eaton added eight blocked shots for Utah.

Maury Wills Held In Car Theft Case LOS ANGELES "(AP) -- Maury Wills, former base-stealing king and Most Valuable Player of the National League in 1962, is free on $1,500 bail after police arrested him for investigation of car theft, officers said. A white substance found in a glass vial beside Wills field- tested positive as cocaine, but furher tests were needed to be sure, police Capt. John Sparkenbach said Tuesday. Wills was booked only in the car-theft case. The former Los Angeles Dodger was arrested at about 5 a.m. Tuesday after two police officers pulled him over on Harbor Freeway when they spotted a broken window on the passenger side, said Spar- kenbach. Wills, 51, who briefly managed the Seattle Mariners, was freed after posting bail. A Dodger executive confirmed that Wills was admitted to an Orange County rehabilia- tion unit for an unspecified problem last August. Fred Claire, executive vice president of the Dodgers, said the club had urged that Wills go and Wills agreed. Claire said he took Wills to the center. "A broken window in a newer-model car might indicate it was stolen," Sparkenbach said in explaining why Wills was stopped. "So the officers ran the license plate and our computer system said it was stolen from (nearby) Lake wood." It was listed stolen in April, Sparkenbach said. Sparkenbach said Wills, who told officers he lives in nearby Playa del Rey and is self-employed, was free on $1,500 bail and is scheduled to appear for arraignment in the Compton court on Jan. 6.
