ovon srs By BOB BAUM Associated Pr«s Writer ire. (AP) - I Portland, but a« is calm with the young basketball team. "I'm not impressed," said a grim-faced Maurice Lucas after the Trail Blazers routed the Philadelphia 76ers 130-93 Tuesday night, tying their National Basketball Association championship best-of-seven series 22. "I won't be impressed until we win the final game," the 6- foot-9 Portland forward said. "I'm not excited, just ready." Lucas and his teammates had everything their way in Game Four. Guard Lionel Hollins, who hit just four of 17 shots in the third gome of the series, made nine of 16 Tuesday night and led all scorers with 25 points. Lucas had 2-1 points and 12 rebounds. And'both sat out most of the final quarter as Coach Jack Ramsay employed his reserves. But there were no whoops of joy or wild celebrations in the Portland locker room. "The margin of victory is not significant," cautioned Ramsay. "It's just a victory. We're now in a three-game series and two of the games are on Philadelphia's court." He meant that two straight home-court triumphs had gotten the Blazers back where they started when the series began, needing a victory on the 76ers' court. They will get their chance Friday night in Game Five. "We're not a very emotional team," said Blazers guard Dave Twardzik.

Wichita - gave Omaha four unearned runs-fa the third inning to allow the Royals to end their nine-game losing streak. The Royals victory in Omaha avenged four losses to the Aeros in Wichita. The Bears scored all their runs in.the third when Juan Mavarrete drove in one on a sacrafice fly then Rick Rennick smashed a three-run homer. The line single by Staggs capped a three-run comback that began with a double from Tom Spencer and a single from Jim Fuller.

It appeared Philadelphia would get a chance to make a run at the Blazers when Portland's Bill Walton drew his fifth foul and left the game with 7:02 remaining in the third quarter and the 76ers trailing 71-57. "I knew I had to get the rebounds and play good defense," said Lloyd Neal, who had 11 rebounds in 22 minutes of play. The game became even more lopsided. Ramsay emptied the bench, but; it did not matter. The lead widened to 41'points, 126-85, with 1:51 left in the game. Walton played slightly more than half the game, scored 12 points, grabbed 13 rebounds and handed out seven assists. Julius Erving, who left the game with four fouls in the third quarter and played only sparingly after that, hit seven of 14 from the field and led the 76ers with 24 points. But he had just two assists, far below his output in the first three playoff games.
