THE PALM BEACH POST TUESDAY, DECEMBER 6, 1994 7D,, j College Football Pro Basketball Nets beat Bulls New Jersey comes from 1 9 back to defeat Chicago 99-94. The Associated Press CHICAGO Armon Gilliam scored 11 of his 24 points in the third quarter Monday night, leading New Jersey from a 19-point deficit to a 99- Gilliam 94 victory over the Chicago Bulls that ended the Nets' four-game losing streak. With 5:18 left, the Nets got their first lead at 86-85 on a drive by Gilliam. It was Gilliam again with two free throws at 2:58, giving New Jersey a 92-90 lead. Pete Myers then picked up a loose ball and fed Scottie Pippen, who was driving the lane for the dunk, tying it 92-92 with 1:49 to go. With 1:19 left, Kenny Anderson' was fouled by Larry Krystkowiak. Anderson made 1-of-2 free throws, giving the Nets the lead for good at 93-92. Anderson was fouled with 17 seconds left by Steve Kerr and made both free throws for a 95-92 lead. Sleepy Floyd scaled the victory with two more free throws with four seconds left. The Nets, paced by Gilliam, rallied in the third quarter, trimming a 63-44 deficit at the half to 82-76 entering the fourth quarter. Pippen led the Bulls with 23 points. KNICKS 101, 76ERS 96 (OT): John Starks and Charles Smith combined for nine of New York's 11 points in overtime as the Knicks beat Philadelphia at The Spectrum. Starks had five of his 16 points and Smith had four of his 20 in the extra period, giving the Knicks their fifth win in seven games. "Confidence-wise, I don't lack any of that," Starks said. "It's just being comfortable out there on the court. Right now, I'm just not into a good rhythm." Starks isn't happy with his 14-point average, but he thinks he's making key contributions. "I just have to keep working hard at it, and all of a sudden it will pop into place and everything will come together," he said. "I never give up on myself or doubt myself." Sharone Wright's baseline jumper 20 seconds into overtime put Philadelphia up 92-90, but Starks' three-pointer followed by Smith's jumper midway through the extra period gave the Knicks the lead for good. Patrick Ewing led all scorers with 25 points. Dana Barros led the 76ers with 22 points, while Willie Burton and Wright had 19 apiece. After trailing by 10 midway through the final quarter, the 76crs rallied to tic it 90-90 on Burton's baseline jumper with 52 seconds left to play. Both teams had a chance to end the game in regulation, but Starks put up an air ball with five seconds to play and Burton's 10-foot jumper at the buzzer was no good. The Knicks opened a 23-8 lead 10 minutes into the game as the 76ers hit only four of their first 16 shots. But Ewing picked up his third foul accompanied by a technical called on coach Pat Riley midway through the second quarter, and Philadelphia used Ewing's absence from the middle to get back into the game. CLIPPERS' SPENCER OUT: The Los Angeles Clippers placed center Elmore Spencer on the injured list because of apparent behavioral and personal problems. Spencer, who turns 25 today, met Monday with team physician Tony Daly, who recommended a specialized treatment sequence to further identify and treat the condition that the Clippers feel has affected both his overall behavior and performance on the court. Spencer was the only player benched by coach Bill Fitch during Saturday night's loss to Minnesota as his college coach, Jerry Tarkan-ian, sat in the front row. After the game, the Clippers' 15th consecutive loss, Spencer made a hasty retreat from the locker room without talking to reporters. To replace Spencer on the roster, the Clippers activated center Bob Martin, who opened the season on the injured list with a bruised right heel.
