Notebook TARPLEY'S REINSTATEMENT NOT IMMINENT After a meeting with Roy Tarpley, an NBA drug counselor said the league has no immediate plans to reinstate the Dallas Mavericks suspended forward. "This was just a routine meeting," said Dr. David Lewis. "I am happy with what's going on (with Tarpley's aftercare program) . No data, (for reinstatement) has been discussed." Tarpley, the NBA's top rebounder, was suspended without pay by the league on Nov. 16 after he was arrested on a Dallas freeway on charges of driving while intoxicated and resisting arrest. Tarpley has two strikes against him under the league's anti-drug program. One more slip and he would be suspended for life, and could apply for reinstatement after two years.

Odds & ends SELFISH Portland was credited with only eight assists Thursday in ils 123-102 loss at Seattle. Terry Porter led Ihe Trail Blaiers with five and Clyde Drexler accounted for Ihe other three. STEALING A WIN Glenn Rivers of Atlanta prevented almost certain overtime, or even a loss, on Thursday when he slole Ihe ball from Miami's Grant Long as he headed down Ihe lane for an apparent game-tying layup with eight seconds left. Rivers was eventually fouled and he sank both tree throws with seven-tenths of a second tell, putting Ihe Hawks in front 117-113. The points proved crucial when Miami's Glen Rice hit a iumper al the buzzer.

Every time we make a mistake, it (the ball) is in the back of the net. "There's no miracle cure. Just hard work . . . hard work, patience and discipline that's how we were winning before. Right now those are just words. "But we'll play through this thing." Dallas coach Billy Phillips is seeing his team playing through the good times. "We had a lot of good chances tonight and we capitalized on them," he said. The Sidekicks were so dominant that, somewhat drastically, Haaskivi went to the sixth attacker with 13 minutes left in the game. Only then did Cleveland look capable of seriously menacing the goal with a sustained attack. ' Mike Sweeney, who assisted on both power-play scores, did get the sixth-attacker goal that closed it up slightly. But Dallas really had this one put away midway through the third. Coming out of the intermission break with a 3-goal lead, the Sidekicks got third-period scores from Richard Chinapoo and Steve Kinsey (his second of the gamej to assume almost total control..!. In defeat, the Crunch went to 7-8, just a half-game out of the basement in the M1SL East, whijg Dallas improved to 10-5, best mark in the league. Crunch goalkeeper P.J. Johns, after seeing his GA average climb higher again (St. Louis roughed him for five scores lasj week), agreed with teammate Bernie James that the defense though confronted by a scoring drought from the Crunch front men, "should be holding teams l;q less than five goals. Defense is a team thing." And Johns stressed, "We have to generate our offense through good defense." ' NOTEBOOK Kansas City, which comes into the Coliseum Tuesday night, got together with Tacoma Friday In a i3-player deal, the Comets sending forward Kla and midfielder Gerry Gray to Tacorna In exchange for defender-midfielder Barry Wallace. KC coach Davt Clements, uo der fire in recent weeks with the Comets sliding into the cellar after a fast start, had been seeking to tighten up the club's defense. Also, there was a wish to shake up the troops. . . . Former University Wl Akron star Roderick Scott, In his rookie season with the Sidekicks, was on the traveling squad tor the current Dallas trip? Cavaliers throw one away in loss to Milwaukee DALLAS 5, CLEVELAND J Continued from page CI Jay Humphries led the Bucks with 27 points as he exploited the Cavs' defensive indecision in the backcourt. Barberton's Alvln Robertson had 14 points, 10 in the fourth quarter to keep the Cavs from getting closer than eight points. Price led the Cavs with his 20 points, including four 3-pointers. John Williams had 16 points and Ehlo added 15. Obviously, Wilkens is searching for an answer. He even tried getting his first technical of the year. In the second quarter, John Williams fouled rookie Frank Komet on a drive to the basket. Official Steve Javie ruled it a breakaway foul, meaning Kornet would get two foul shots and then Milwaukee would receive possession of the ball. Wilkens called the decision, "ridiculous." He asked Javie what game he was watching. Javie basically ignored him. Then Wilkens told Javie, "You're arrogant." Javie said, "You gonna say that again?" Wilkens said, "That's right, I said you're arrogant." Devils defeat Flyers in overtime Associated Press Kirk Muller's goal at 1:18 of overtime Friday night gave the New Jersey" Devils a 5-4 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers in Philadelphia. Defenseman Tommy Albelin shot from the left point and hit goaltender Ken Wregget, who was falling. .The puck deflected to Muller who shifted to his backhand and shoveled the puck into the open net. The Devils, now 2-0-1 this season af the Spectrum, moved to one point of the first-place Flyers NHL ROUNDUP and New York Rangers in the Patrick Division. In other games: Buffalo 2, Montreal 2 Shayne Corson scored vith two seconds left In regulation time to lift the Montreal Canadiens to a tie with the Buffalo Sabres In a meeting between the .NHL's top two teams in Buffalo. The Sabres were called for Icing, with five seconds remaining in the third ' period. With goaltender Brian Hayward oft in favor of an extra attacker, Brian Skrud-land won the ensuing faceoff In Buffalo's end and pulled the puck back to Chris Chellos at the point. Chelios then fed Corson in the right circle, and he hit the open side of the net for his 14th goal of the season. Rick Vaive scored his 400th NHL goal. Toronto 5, Chicago 3 Tom Fergus and Ed Olczyk scored 18 seconds apart early in the third period, lifting the Torento Maple Leafs over the host Chicago Black-hawks. Lat$ Thursday Edmonton 3, Winnipeg 2 Glenn Anderson scored two goals as the Edmonton Oilers beat the visiting Winnipeg Jets. Lot Angeles 6, Quebec 1 Goalie Mario Gosselin stopped 30 shots by his (ormer Quebec teammates, and John To-nelli had a goal and two assists as the Los Angeles Kings extended the Nordiques' winless streak to 12 games. Technical foul, said Javie. It was Wilkens' first technical of the season, and he used no profanity in the entire exchange, which could be heard from the press table. The Cavs trailed by nine points at the time of the technical. Then they started to climb back into the game and trailed by only 49-48 at the half. But then they literally threw the game away in the second half. NOTEBOOK The LA Clippers held a contest to find a nickname for Ron Harper and they came up with "Hollywood." You got It, "Hollywood Harper," whom the Clips are marketing as their Magic Johnson. Considering the fact that Harper had back-to-back games of 39 points heading into Friday night, Harper Is a big reason the Clips are finally starting to get some attention from the LA media. . . With Friday's purchase of WWWE 1100-AM radio by Booth broadcasting, don't be surprised if the Cavaliers are back on that station next season. The Cavs will finish off their season with WRMR (850-AM) and their radio network. They have another year to run on that contract, but that can change, especially since that contract was signed with Booth Broadcasting, the company that just bought WWWE. Word from sources is that Booth paid $15 million for WWWE and to buy the rights to the Indians and Browns games from Sports Marketing Inc. The bulk of the $15 million went for the righjs for the sports teams. Reportedly, Booth would not have bought WWWE without owning the rights to the Indians and Browns outright. Sources say that the grand plan for Booth Is tojnake WWWE the sports giant of old with the Browns, Indians and Cavs. . . . Doug Collins has emerged as the hot candidate to be the new coach of the Sacramento Kings. . . . Milwaukee has 7-fool-3 Randy Breuer on the trading block. . . .
