7^ J- •m 4 ByGAHYKALfi tJPI iSfwrtt Writer NEW YORK (UPI) - Over- confktenee may litvt elo^ the cash register on further New Y6rk Kfiick playoff payments. The Kfiicks Jumped off to a ()uick 34 series lead against a Boston team playing with a ' 'one-armed" John Havlicek, but couldn't nail the clincher in the nejtt two games and now are down to the final game of the Eastern Conference fbials. Dave Cowens, whose octopus arms and deadly outside shot gave Boston the best won-lost record in the National Basketball Association during the regular season, scored 26 points Friday night as the Celtics beat New York, 110-100, to tie the series at 3-3* ^ "Dave gets stronger and better each game/^ said Hav« 1 licek after the red-haired pivotman collected 14 rebounds and completely bottled up Willis Reed and Jerry Lucas under the boards. ''We were trying to mix it up/^ Cowens said. "We had to get ctoser to the basket and hit a bistter percentage of our shots. There's one more big game (Sunday) and nobody can do it but ourselves. Vl^e were pretty steady and didn't crack like before. It won't be too tough getting up for the seventh game." Cowens picked up the scoring slack after Jo Jo White hit 17 points in the first half but was held to only eight after intermission. 4 "Dave is super, super terrific/' crowed Boston Coach Tom Heinaohn. "It's gonna be a ^reat game Sunday. We played this one with Don Chaney hurt (pulled thigh muscle) and Don Nelson in pain (sprained ankle). But we played i0od» smart basketball and kept our poise." Walt Frazier and Earl Monroe tried to carry the New York load with » and 22 points, respectively, but received little support up front. "The Celtics played very good team defense and we played very poor team offense," shrugged Knick Coach Red Holzman. "Cowens plays so well, so often, you can't really say this was his best effort." Cowens scored three baskets in a 12-0 Boston surge late in the game that beat the Knicks, who were held scoreless from the 5:14 mark to Dave DeBusschere's basket with 1:01 left. The Knicks held their last lead at M>M but the Celts outscored New York, IM, the rest of the way.

By MIKE RABUN .UPI Sports Writer DALLAS (UPI) - Lee Trevino has exited with a pulled shoulder muscle^ Arnold Palmer is barely hanging on and Jaclc Niclclaus is off conducting Ixisiness in tlie Orient. But to Bob Dickson it would make little difference if all three of them were just a stroke behind him going into today's third round of the $150,000 Byron Nelson Classic. Diclcson is confident he coukl tame just about anj^one. Dickson jumped in front midway through the Nelson event Friday with a four-under 66 over the 6,932-yard, par 3S-3S -70 Preston TraU Golf Club coarse and that was good enough for a one-stroke margin over first^ound leader Don Bies. F " ''I'm still riding a peak and it's fun while it lasts," said Dickson, who salvaged his round by making a par on the long 15th after dumping his second shot in the water. "A year ago and I would have F made a seven on that hole he said," "Gee, I'm playing awfully well."^ On^ 10 golfers managed to break par through the first two rounds of the tournament, although Friday's round was played in near ideal conditions compared with the hi^ winds and rain of Thursday. Native Texan Roy Pace, Bert Yancey, Australian David Graham, Dan Sikes and 53-year-old Julius Boros where in at 138, two under nar and three strokes off par the lead. Lanny Wadkins, Tom Weiskopf and Rod Curl were each at 139. Arnold Palmer stayed in the running by turning in a 70 for a 141. • Trevino, who suffered through an embarrassing 79 during Thursday's bad weather, said the pain he experienced during that round had been diagnosed as a severely pulled shoulder muscle. He withdrew and said he would also miss the next two tournaments in Houston and Fort Worth—events he usualy likes to make since he gets a chance to play before home- state galleries. Bies y v/ho opened with a stunning 65 in the wind, appeared on his way to total collapse when he bogeyed three of the first five holes. But he steadied himself and then got back in the game with a 30-foot birdie putt on the 12th. Then, when he ran in a downhill affair of 15 feet on the 18th green he had narrowed tho deficit against Dickson to a single stroke.

Durocher was hospitalized April 20 with an inflammation of the lower intestines. Richardson said Durocher may be released from Methodist Hospital by Monday, but he would still be too weak to leave to make the ICklay road trip which starts in Philadelphia Tuesday night. Durocher, 66, was on a liquid diet until he began receiving soft foods Thursday. Seaver By FRED McMANE. UPI Sports Writer- H^nk A^on is going strong in his quest to overhaul Babe Ruth but Tom Seaver is going berserk in his efforts to win a ballgame. Aaron battle with the won a Seaver Friday night as Atlanta star blasted his 678th career homer to help the Braves defeat the New York Mets,,2-0, and the loss touched off an outburst of anger in the usually easy-going Seaver. Seaver, usually cooperative with the press, refused to talk to reporters after the game as the Mets once again failed to score for him. "Just get away from me, will you please," Seaver said to one writer who tried to interview him. '1 might start yelling and I don't want to start yelling." Aaron and Darrell Evans biased back-to-back homers in the fourth inning and they were two of only three hits Seaver allowed in seven innings as his record dropped to 2-2. The hard-throwing right-hander has given up only five runs^all on solo homers—this season, but the Mets have scored only six runs for him in 40 1-3 innings. Dobson Stops the Mets Pat Dobson stopped the Mets on just three singles Friday night Aaron's home run was his fifth of the season and moved him to within 37 of breaking Ruth's career record of 714.

But U.S.S.R. Head Coach Vladimir Kandrashin was far from pleased with his team's showing. **If we play this poorly Sunday, we'll get beat by 30 points," he said. The Soviets leave for California today to play a team of U.S. All-America stars led by UCLA's BiU Walton. Game No. 2 on the barnstorming tour is schedued for Sunday in the Forum in Inglewood. And the third game is Monday night in San Diego. •The team we meet in California is much better than the one we beat tonight," Kandrashin said. 'Tm not optimistic at all about our chances." The Utah All-Stars, coached by Bill Foster of the University of Utah and Weber State's Gene Visscher, hit one more shot from the field than the Soviets but the Russians outscored them, 20-9, from the free throw line to take the foul-plagued first game. Eight players were ejected from the game—five from the Utah team and three Russians —including game high scorer Bob Lauriski for the Utah Ali- Stars and U.S.S.R. 1972 Olympic hero Aleksandr Belov. After the Russians had built up a 39-31 halftime spread, Lauriski led the Utahns back to Belov, the Soviet hero in the U.S.S.R., and Ivan Edeshko led the Russians with 12 points each. Belov fouled out with two minutes left. Foster and Visscher said they had never seen so many fouls called in a single game. The Utah team was called for 47 fouls to 34 for the Soviets. **We felt we had to hit from the outside to win," Foster said. **We told our guards to let them fly. We didn't hit at all. That kiUed us." The Utah team's five guards hit only four-of-31 attempts. The All-Star squad launched 78 attempts but only hit 34.6 per cent from the field to 52.1 per cent for the Russians.
