ft- i ftyOlLPETEnS BOSTON (UPI) - The New York Knkks won a musical mSiSUstpHBtt t^riday night over the SMtott Celtics. The Khieks controlled the tefnim o^ the game, throwing Celtics off SPORTS the rhythm* and their banded running together the OALESBURG, ILL., SAT., APR, 21, 19^3 SEC. 2 PAGE 11 for a VMl win that gave New Yorkers a 2-1 edge in the National Basketball Astsociation Eastern Conference championships. ''t thought we controlled the tempo of the game well/' said Knicks' coach Red Holtzman. "It seemed we let the tempo get slow" in the third period when Boston came from a 65-50 deficit to within two points, 8179, in the first minutes of the final period. "We paid the price for it but we picked up the tempo again," as the Knicks ran off 10 straight points to win going away, Holtzman said. The Knicks built a ^27 first- period lead into a 58-4^ halftime margin on the strength of a 14-3 surge in a 5:24 stretch. The keys for the Knicks in the surge—and in the game- were Dave DeBusschere and Walt Frazier. "DeBusschere really played well. He's probably the man you can pick as the guy who beat us/' said Celtics' coach Tom Heinsohn." But DeBusschere had a great deal of help, especially from Bill Bradley who pumped in six points during t h e Knicks' devasting fourth-quarter streak. John Havlicek, a doubtful starter for Sunday's fourth game because of pulled neck muscles, had 12 points in the third period and Dave Cowens added 13 to bring the Celtics to within four points, 81-77, at the close of the third frame. But after Don Nelson's jumper at the 33-second mark of the fourth quarter closed the gap to two, the Knicks regained their "tempo/' First Bradley hit from the top of the key, then Frazier swept under the bucket for a falling reverse layup, and Bradley came back with a jumper and a baseline shot. Phil Jackson, who pulled down seven rebounds while scoring eight points, completed the spurt with a long one-hander and the Celtrcs were finished. Fi \v New York players scored in double figures, led by Frazier's 23. Other top scorers were DeBusschere, 17; Bradley 15; and Monroe II. Havlicek led all scorers with 29, followed by Cowens with 27 and Jo Jo White with 24, but no other Celtic scored' more than four points.

The Jets skated to a 3r0 lead in. the first period and never looked back from there. Boyer was instrumental in the victory and late in the game the Jets attempted to set up the 36-year- old low-scoring Boyer for his third eoal of the ^ame. but Country Club course which was buffeted by strong winds Friday. Trevino, who has been on the pro golf tour only six years, has career earnings of $961,733 and the $40,000 would make him the fourth millionaire. Those who preceded him into the millionaire's circle are Arnold Palmer, Billy Casper and Jack Nicklaus. Nicklaus was the pre- tournament favorite here as usual in the field of 31. Nicklaus is a stroke back of 'trevino at 140 with a pair of 709 and in a tie with J. C. Snead, 72-68. Palmer is at 141 with 70-71 "The wind was in our face all the time except on the 15th," said Trevino. *' I drove it terrible all day. I thought I'd never finish that 17th hole. I hit a bad drive, then a six-iron into the rough and when.I finally got on the green, I missed a five-foot putt and took a bogey six." Trevino sunk a 10-foot putt for a birdie three on the 16th in addition to the one on the 10th. Bob Lunn, Sacramento, Calif., had a rare nine on the par-tour first hole when hisr ball hit him on the head when he tried to get out of a bunker. He took a two;9troke penalty for that and then three-putted for his quintuple bogey. Lunn shot a 77 and was at 150. V Vhiie Sox Crush Kansas City Fan Makes Catch jor League Leaders goal failed.

By United Press International The Chicago White Sox, who have been on the wrong end of some 12-run scores t^is season, avenged themselves Friday night, racking up eight runs in the first two innings en route to a 16-2 drubbing of the Kansas City Royals. Bill Melton, who drove in five runs on a single, a double and a two-run homer, proved to be the catalyst for the visiting Sox, touching off two Chicago outbursts. Melton started the Sox' scoring onslaught in the first, cracking .a run-scoring single before Mike Andrews connected for a two-run double. The Sox put the game out of reach in the second when Pat Kelly and Carlos May produced run-scoring singles, Dick Allen pushed another run across with sacrifice fly and Melton homer, his fourth round San Francisco Giants leftfielder Gary Matthews makes a leap up the wall, but a young fan, at top, ends up with the ball hit by the run trip of the season. Melton also keyed a five-run Sox rampage in the sixth inning, cracking a two - run double following a single by May and a double by Allen. Andrews and Jorge Orta slapped run scoring singles and another run crossed the plate on a double play. While Sox hitters were battering Royals pitchers, Sox hurler Stan Bahnsen was, for the most hitters. Dodgers' Joe Ferguson for a solo homer in the second inning at Dodger Stadium Friday.

One Scandinavian favorite, Finn Hannu Mikkola, dropped right down the field today after a strong start. Mikkola last year became the first non-East African entry to win the rally but he limped into Dar Es Salaam with a smashed windshield and 149 penalty points.
