Stipo Leads Pacers Over Nets Associa ted Press Steve Stipanovich realizes that sometimes a player has to pay a price in pain for success in the NBA. On Sunday in East Rutherford, N.J., Stipanovich forgot about his badly bruised back and scored 24 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to lift the Indiana Pacers to a 102-96 victory over the New Jersev Nets. NBA Roundup "At this point in the season, you do what you have to do," said Stipanovich, who had 10 points in the decisive fourth quarter. "We haven't been playing well lately and this was a game we really needed to win," said Stipanovich, who sat out Indiana's loss Friday in Philadelphia. The Pacers, 32-33, are battling with Cleveland, Philadelphia, New York and Washington for the last three playoff spots in the Eastern Conference. Indiana Coach Jack Ramsay knows how much a healthy Stipanovich means. "It would be very hard for us to win without him," Ramsay- said, "He plays a lot of minutes and does a lot of things for us at both ends of the court." "He insisted all along that he was going to play," Ramsey said after his 7-foot center hit 50 of 12 shots from the field and made all four foul shots. "But he's had a couple of bad falls lately and I know his back has really been bothering him." While Stipanovich carried the load inside, Ron Anderson and rookie Reggie Miller picked up the Pacers with big efforts off the bench. Celtics 137, Bulls 107 Boston clinched a playoff berth as Larry Bird scored 33 points and the Celtics limited Michael Jordan to 26. Jordan, who scored 50 points in a victory over Boston in Chicago on Friday night, sat out part of the third period after picking up his fourth foul and the Celtics Associated Press Pacers' Herb Williams (L) reaches out for ball as Tim McCormick can't find handle turned a two-point deficit into a 95-85 lead. Kevin McHale added 29 points for Boston, which has won seven of its last eight games. Boston's 42-point fourth quarter was only two less than the Bulls' second-half total. Blazers 105, Mavericks 99 Clyde Drexler scored 21 points and had 11 rebounds to lead Portland over Dallas. Lakers 130, Warriors 127 Byron Scott made a pair of free throws with 15 seconds remaining for the last of his game-high 29 points. The Lakers, who had lost four of their previous five games since Magic Johnson was injured, led 128-121 with 1:17 left but the Warriors rallied within a point^ith22^secpnds left. PTstonslTsT Bullets 110 Joe Dumars scored 15 of his 25 points in the first quarter and Detroit extended its club-record home-court winning streak to 17 games. The Pistons, who have won six straight overall, took the lead for good 8-6 on a basket by Dumars, whose 25 points tied his season high, and led by as many as 14 points in the final period. Nuggets 108, SuperSonics 95 Michael Adams scored 27 points and Alex English had 22 as Denver clinched a playoff berth. Adams led the Nuggets in scor- ing for the third straight game and had a key 3-point basket with 4:09 left that opened a 94-89 lead. He has had a 3-pointer in 26 consecutive games, an NBA record. Mike Woodson scored 28 of his 36 points in the second half to equal a season high and Darnell Valentine added a season-high 25 points as the Clippers snapped a 10-game losing streak. Although it was only the Clippers' third victory in their last 27 games, their 13-50 record is one more triumph than they had last season en route to the league's worst record and the worst in the franchise's 18-year history. Associated Press Mark Plansky (R) drives around Nick Anderson Big East Having Tough Time In NCAA Tourney Associated Press The mighty Big East Conference, with its record-lying six NCAA tournament teams, was down to one -- tied with the Colonial Athletic Association and one behind the Atlantic 10. While the CAA's Richmond was on a run, the Big East was practically run out of the NCAA's tournament. Already gone from the Big East were St. John's and Syracuse, and they were joined on Sunday by eighth-ranked Pittsburgh, Georgetown and Seton Hal!. Only Villanova. which beat Illinois 66-63 in the Southeast Regional after falling behind by 14 points, remained to uphold Big East honor. "This effort is one of the finest efforts I ever witnessed as a coach and as a spectator," Villanova's Rollie Massimino said. There were none to uphold the honor of last, year's Final Four teams, however. Indiana, the 1987 national champion, already had been beaten by Richmond; Syracuse was Rhode Island's victim; Nevada-Las Vegas lost Sunday to Iowa, and Providence didn't even get an invitation. Top-ranked Templo and surprising Rhode Island upheld the honor of the lightly regarded Atlantic 10, while Richmond carried the banner of the even more suspect Colonial Athletic Association. Richmond's toughest test is yet to come, though. The Spiders meet Temple, which has won 17 in a row, in the East semifinals on Thursday in East Rutherford, N.J. EAST No. 1 Temple 74, Georgetown 53 Temple, 31-1, got into the regional semifinals for the first time in five consecutive tries, outscoring Georgetown 15-6 in the first nine minutes of the second half to put the game away. "We were successful before we got here. Now. we need to be lucky," Temple Coach John Chaneysaid. Mark Macon had six points and Mike Vreeswyk five in the run as the Owls took a 45-82 lead with 11:15 to play. Georgetown, 20-10, hit only 30 percent from the field in its worst shooting performance of the season. Macon and Vreeswyk had 21 points apiece for Temple. SOUTHEAST Villanova 66, No. 16 Illinois 63 Mark Plansky hit a pair of free throws with four seconds left to put Villanova ahead 64-63, and the Wildcats stayed alive in the tournament. Plansky scored 16 points, including 10 of Villanova's final 18. Villanova now will meet Kentucky in the Southeast semifinals at Birmingham, Ala., next Thursday. The Wildcats trailed by as many as 14 points in the second half but took advantage of poor Illinois foul shooting in the final 1:41. Tom Greis also had 16 points for the Wildcats, 23-12. Illinois is 23-10. No. 6 Kentucky 90, Maryland 81 Rex Chapman, with just one NCAA Roundup field goal in the first half, scored 20 points after intermission and led Kentucky on an 18-10 run that stopped Maryland. Chapman was 8-for-12 in the second half and wound up with 23 points. Kentucky is 27-5, while Maryland finished 18-13. Maryland had a chance to take a late lead after a 3-point shot by Keith Gatlin tied the score with 3:06 left, But Winston Bennett and Chapman both had basekts to get the Kentucky lead back to four. MIDWEST Vanderbilt 80, No. 8 Pittsburgh 74, OT Barry Goheen hit two 3-point baskets in the final 17 seconds to send the game into overtime tied at 69, and Vanderbilt scored the first six points of the extra period to eliminate Pitt. Goheen hit five free throws in overtime. Goheen ended with 22 points for Vanderbilt, 20-10, which advances to the Midwest Regional semis at Pontiac, Mich., against Kansas on Friday. Pitt, 24-7, led by as many as 13 points midway through the first half. Charles Smith topped the Panthers with 21 points, Kansas6l, MurraySt 58 Danny Manning hit a jump hook with 38 seconds left, giving the Jayhawks a 59-58 lead and sending Kansas into the regional semifinals. Manning wound up with 25 points, 16 in the second half/ Kansas, 23-11, outscored Murray State 16-7 midway through the second half to take a 48-41 lead with 9:48 to play. Two free throws by Jeff Martin with 51 seconds left gave Murray State, 22-9, its final lead at 58-57. WEST No. 2 Arizona 84, Seton Hall 55 Arizona outscored Seton Hall 22-4 early in the first half and ran away from the Pirates. Anthony Cook had 20 points for Arizona, 33-2, which advances to the West Regional semifinals on Friday in Seattle against Iowa. An 18-footer by Steve Kerr started the Arizona run, and the Wildcats erased an 8-3 Seton Hall lead. The run included 13 straight points and three-point plays by Cook and Sean Elliott, who had 19 points. Seton Hall ended its season 22-12. No. 17 Iowa 104, No. 12 UNLV 86 Jeff Moe and Ed Horton had 24 points apiece as Iowa reversed the outcome of last year's West Regional championship game, which vaulted Nevada-Las Vegas into the 1987 Final Four. The Hawkeyes broke the game open in the final 10 minutes of the first half, scoring 14 straight points to take a 71-45 lead with 13:20 left. Iowa scored more than 100 points for the second time in the tournament and became the sixth team to do it this year. The Hawkeyes, 24-9, scored 100 or more points for the 15th time this season. Nevada-Las Vegas finished 28-6.
