In the matchup ol Ihe last Iwo league scoring champions, Atlanta's among taiic Hosts work me. Sure, I'm a little behind. But how long will it take me to catch up? A few weeks, a month at the most. I do my homework and I don't care what Brinda says. Hey, I was doing Indians play-by-play on television when I was 29. I've done the Cavs and the Browns. Brinda tried for all those jobs and didn't get any of them. And he tried for this job, too, and he didn't get it. There was a poll last week in the Plain Dealer and I killed Brinda. They say I got 57 percent of the votes, but I really got more but the station didn't want me to know be- point out ingredient Brad Daugherty in a recent slump, only Mark Price was able to consistently supply points. The 7-1 Daugherty went into last week averaging 19 points and nine rebounds and shooting 50 percent. But in the last four games he has averaged 11 points and five rebounds and shot 44 percent. It seems that Daugherty has wandered too far from the basket and is hesitating slightly before he shoots. He simply is going through a bad stretch. NOTEBOOK The Cavs are expected to activate Harpor today and must cut someone from their roster. It would seem that Johnny Rogers will stay, because he has played in the last two games. The most vulnerable player is rookie forward Kan-nard Johnson, who has sat out the last 10 games and has played only 12 minutes all season. McCutcheon, his backup, getting edged out of a decision.

Wilkins scored 3 Saturday in the Hawks' 125-98 victory over New York, converting 1 1 -of -?0 field-goal attempts and all 15 of his free throws. Atlanta is 7-1 during Wilkins' hoi streak. cause they would have had to pay me even more money than they are already." Brinda: "During the World Scries, Bruce filled in for me on my show. I'll tell you, I had to fill him in on a lot of things. It was during the World Series and he was very out of touch." Drennan: "What can I say about Brinda? I feel sorry for the kid. He thought he was going to get this job and he didn't. Look, I'm going to blow him out. It's over for him." Brinda: "All I can say is that I wish Bruce a lot of luck because he'll need it. Not only does he have to go against me, he will be haunted by replacing Pete." NOTEBOOK In New York, Franklin continues to build a steady audience. He is doing a lot of his "As The Ball Bounces" routines, including one where George Stelnbrenner sits in Santa Claus' lap and Santa slaps George and calls him a spoiled brat. All ol Franklin's commercial time is sold out, and 60 seconds goes for $500. That means on his 4-hour spot, Franklin Is earning WFAN $32,000 a day. His station is sending him to the Super Bowl in San Diego and to spring training with the New York Mets. "For the first time in my career, I got a Christmas bonus," Franklin said. "I'm talking about money. In the past, the most I ever got was a coupon for a turkey. So, I guess that means I'll be on the air at least for next week." Finally, Franklin has Ihe love ol his life Raquel Welch doing promos lor his show. . . . There are rumors that Steve LaMar may be replaced as Herb Score's partner on WWWE's Indians broadcasts. . . . There will be a second all-sports station In addition to WFAN in New York. WIP in Philadelphia soon will adopt that format. ... It is believed that Force owner Bart Wolstetn has more than just a minor interest in WWWE radio. Some sources say Wolstein comes very close to owning 50 percent ol Ihe station. Guess where the Force games will be broadcast next year. toni mer right now factors out in the Sting's favor. Nogueira is 3-4 in decisions, and his 5.07 GAA figure markedly is higher than his career average (4.52). But it's still a long season. The Force practiced Monday before flying into Chicago Monday night. It was definite then that Ali Kaemaini was lost for the 2-game road trip that continues in Dallas Wednesday night. Kazemaini had to come out of Sunday's game, a 6-3 Force conquest of Wichita, in the first half after pulling a hamstring. Kaze-maini's miseries stem from a chronic back problem. Cleveland also may be missing the services of top goal-scorer Craig Allen, whose sore thigh muscle has him listed as "questionable." Allen was ineffectual against Wichita after putting together a 5-point game against Minnesota Dec. 19. get lutler surprises Iowa State behind Tucker's 29 points Associated Press Chad Tucker scored 29 points and the game-winning basket to lead Butler to a 78-76 upset of No. 16 Iowa State in the opening round of the Blade Classic Monday night in Toledo.
