In other NBA action Sunday, Cincinnati topped Seattle 138128, Detroit drubbed Chicago 134-123, Los Angeles look Baltimore 121-114 and St. Louis edged San Diego 106-104.

"Barring injuries, we're In fine shape now," Philadelphia Coach Alex Hannum said after the foul-filled duel with the Celtics. "This had to be. We've been rising to the occasion." With Hal Greer hitting for 43 points, the 76ers built a 21-point lead midway through the fourth period and then checked a desperation rally by the Celtics. The Celtics were up for the game, but their hopes of handing Philadelphia a fourth straight garden loss and taking a 5-2 season advantage over the 76ers were dashed by the outside shooting and penetrating drives of Greer and Wally Jones. With both teams aiming for a sh^rdpwnJt\ the Eastern play- off3in&s,lhY76ers pr6ved they can win in Boston, where they managed just four victories in 20 previous regular season visits. Referees Norm Drucker and Don Murphy called 70 fouls, including three technicals, in the rugged game before a national television audience and a Garden crowd of 14,692, the largest pro basketball turnout in Boston history. The Garden recently added seats, doing away with the familiar 13,909 capacity. Cincinnati's victory kept the fourth-place Royals 1% games ahead of Detroit, who replaced Baltimore in fifth place in the Eastern Division. Connie Dierking's 41 points, a pro-career high, sparked the Royals' victory, Cincinnati led 66-65 at halftime, but Dierking and Adrian Smith spurred them into a 77-70 lead early in the third period and Seattle never caught up. Smith finished with 31 points. Rod Thorn lead Seattle with 22. Detroit rolled to its victory behind the double-figure scoring of six players. Dave Bing led the parade with 34 points, followed by Eddie Miles, 27, Lan Chappell, 22. McCoy McLemore paced Chicago with 23, Los Angeles overcame a nine-point deficit in the third quarter and moved to their seventh straight victory and 22nd in the last 27 games behind the shooting of Elgin Baylor and Archie Clark.

The Grizzlies are the top- ranked team in the Associated Press' Arkansas high school basketball poll and have won 21 straight. They won their first two games of the season, lost two games at Little Rock, and haven't been beaten since. And, the Grizzlies have one of the top individual performers in the state—Aimer Lee. One longtime observer says Lee can do more things well than any player had liad ^iv.erjfci^en in an. Arkansas High 1 School. Lee recently "broke the one-season scoring record set by Tommy Boyer, a former University of Arkansas standout. Northside, however, Is no shoo-in. Little Rock Central and Blytheville are considered the top threats but North Little Rock, Little Rock Horace Mann, Fort Smith Southside, Hot Springs, El Dorado and Texarkana could figure in the picture. North Little Rock is the defending champion. The AAA picture is crystal- clear when compared with the Class A A tournament which also gets under way today. Crossett, 28-4, sports the best won-lost record but traditionally the best AA basketball had been played in the north half of the state, Harrison is the defending champion. Blytheville and Springdale kick off the AAA tournament at 12:30 this afternoon. Leachville and Magnolia open AA play at 2 p.m. The pairings in Class AAA; Today - Blytheville vs Springdale, 12:30; Jonesboro vs Hot Springs, 3:30; and Little Rock Horace Mann vs. Fayettevllle, 8.

Frazier is favored because he has fought tougher opponents including George Chuvalo of Canada, Eddie Afechen, Doug Jones and Billy Daniels.
