The new Seatlle coach walched his Sonics score jusl nine points in Ihe final period Wednesday nighl, yel Seallle edged the Kings 86-84 in Kansas City. Just hours after Wilkens replaced the fired Bob Hopkins as head coach, the Sonics mounted a 17-point third- quarter lead and went on to shade Ihe Kansas Cily Kings Wednesday nighl, 86-84. II was only the second victory in 12 road games this season for the downtrodden Sonics. Seattle oulscored Kansas City, 15-2, in the last four minutes of the third period and look a 78-61 advantage early in the fourth. Then the Kings, led by rookie Otis Birdsong, went on a 17-3 spree to narrow Ihe gap lo 82-78. But Slick Walls hit two crucial buckets in Ihe final Iwo minules lo ice Seatlle's victory. The Kings, who fell lo 7-13 and suffered their sixth loss in seven outings, had a chance lo send Ihe game into overtime. But with two seconds left, Richard Washington missed a fivefoot jumper and Seattle's Jack Sikma pulled in the rebound. "The thing I'm really happy about is that we stayed together," said Wilkens. "When you've been struggling and something like this happens it's so easy lo go in separate directions." Wilkens said the Sonics did not do anylhing differenl except, "we ran a lillle more than we usually do. But I knew we couldn't put anylhing new in. There just wasn't lime for Laura Baugh in one of Ihe best of the 54 men-women teams that slarted competition today over Ihe 7,015-yard, par-72 Norlh Course at the Bardmoor Country Club. It's different — but not quile so much fun for crusty, lillle Frank Chirkinian, who serves as producer-director for Ihe CBS-TV crew that will provide national television coverage of Ihe final two rounds Saturday and Sunday. "There are some entirely differenl problems in direction because of the decision- making processes involved," Chirkinian said, Ihen shifted into a mimicry of two pros talking to each other. '"How do you play Ihis shot'? '"Well, kind of so-so? What have you got?' '"I got it in the fairway but I'm in an old divot and I don't know what it's gonna do.' '"Well, what do you want to do?' '"You play it.' '"Aw, come on. You play it'."
