Kru'cks edge Hawks 105-104, Lakers lose By United Press International The New York Knickerbockers are finally beginning to take an interest in the National Basketball Association division races even though they are virtually out of contention themselves. The Knicks, for whom every victory must be considered an upset, edged the St. Louis Hawks, 105-104, Wednesday night on Johnny Egan's basket to record their second consecutive win — a feat they hadn't accomplished since October of 1963. What's more, New York ruined the Hawks' chances of moving within a game of the Western Division leaders, Los Angeles, who dropped a 102-9" verdict lo the Philadelphia 76ers in the first game of a Boston Garden twin bill. In the nightcap, San Francisco defeated the Celtics, 100-92. New York rallied to defeat Boston Tuesday night and followed the same pattern Wednesday night. Bob Pettit paced the Hawks to a 63-57 halftime lead with 15 points, but an improved Knick defense held the St. Louis star to seven points in the second half before he fouled out early in the fourth period. Egan, who led the Knicks with 26 points for the game, scored with 44 seconds remaining. St. Louis center Zclmo Beaty sunk a layup with 20 seconds left, but the goal wa Even with Chamberlain Warriors don't draw in SF disallowed due to an offensive foul. Beaty scored 26 for the Hawks, who dropped into third place. Wilt Chamberlain played a strong game in every department to lead the Warriors lo their upset over the Celtics Chamberlain scored a game high of 28 points, gathered a high of 22 rebounds, and held Bill Russell to eight points as San Francisco closed to within Hi games of Los Angeles. The Lakers, who now have lost both their games since a thumb injury sidelined star guard Jerry West, dissipated a five point halftime lead. Philadelphia finished strong on the fine backcourt play of Hal Greer and Larry Costello. Greer accounted for 26 points, while Costello, who contributed 15, shot the 76ers into the lead] in the third period. By HAL WOOD UPI Sports Writer SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) Thursday's shorts: One of the major puzzles in the world of professional sports today is why the San Francisco Wariors, with a great star like Wilt Chamberlain and a good over-all record, fail to draw in their home town. They attract sell-out crowds in Los Angeles and Boston and other cities. But at home they arc lucky to draw 3,000 fans to most games. The owners are befuddled over the failure ol the professional cage game to catch on here—especially when California and Stanford University teams play to sell-outs on their home courts.... John Brodie, San Francisco Forty Niner quarterback who sat out most of 1963 with a broken arm, indirectly placed the blame on the failure of the Forty Niner attack last season on the reserve quarterbacks the other night when he told a banquet: "There is nothing wrong with the Forty Niner offensive line," Step down, Bobby Waters and Lamar McHan... All the golf pros who have watched 21-year-old Jim Black, the ex-caddy from North Carolina, claim the youth appears to have what it takes to be a winner on the tour—and he possibly may become the first Negro in history to win a major olf championship ...

The city, likewise, would not back down in its demand for a lease of at least four years in length. City officials said fans here have a right to baseball stability after supporting the second division club with an average annual attendance of 894.984 for the past nine years. "But we don't know what the attendance is going to be here," said the owner, speaking of the future. "I cannot survive on small attendance. Finley said he had troubles other than the lengthy lease negotiations, which he claimed would hurt future attendance here. and the American League's ultimatum telling him to sign a lease here by Feb. 15 or face expulsion from baseball. He said federal tax agents!Sjarch were peering over his shoulder with eyebrows raised at his tax benefits from taking full de preciation on his baseball play ers within thc three years he has owned the Athletics. He told city officials the In ternal Revenue Service believes he should have spread the depreciation benefits over a long er period of time. "I got a letter from them asking for approximately $250,000 more," he said. The owner, whose baseball team is incorporated within his multi-million-doUar medical insurance company, said he thus was rejecting the alternate city proposals for a four-year lease that he took under advisement last Saturday.
