King outlasts Daniel PRINCEVILLE, Hawaii (AP) Betsy King says she couldn't have beaten Beth Daniel down the stretch in the LPGA Kemper Open on her own. "I didn't play that well she had to falter, King said. "I feel bad for Beth, she played a lot better than I did." King started Sunday's final round of the $300,000 tournament three strokes behind Daniel, who had led since the second round. King closed to within one stroke of Daniel on the 15th and overtook her on the 18th by hitting a risky approach shot over the water. King landed the shot 40 feet away and two-putted for birdie. Daniel tried to match King's shot, but dropped it into the water and bogeyed the hole. Daniel said she planned to play for an easier shot, but King's effort left her no alternative. "It was Betsy's call," Daniel said. "She hit a great shot." Lakers answer another By The Associated Press One by one, challengers have tested their ability against the defending champion Los Angeles Lakers this season, and one by one they have left the court shaking their heads. After a 108-97 victory Sunday over Dallas, the Lakers are now 9- 0 against the Mavericks, Boston, Atlanta and Detroit the four teams considered to be the most serious threats to take the title awav. "Dallas had been running roughshod over people and that got our attention," Lakers Coach Pat Riley said, referring to the Mavericks' club-record nlgame winning streak. "We've hot play-; ed anywhere near this level for the past few weeks. So Dallas really brought it out in us."

Daniel missed a 15-foot putt for par that would have forced a sudden-death playoff. The putt went just left of the cup. "I hit a great putt," Daniel said. "I really thought I'd made it." King shot a 3-under-par 69 and finished with a 72-hole total of 280, 8 under par on the Mirage Prince-ville Ocean and Lake course on the Hawaiian island of Kauai. King earned $45,000 for the victory, the 12th of her career and her second Women's Kemper Open title. Daniel shot a 73 Sunday, and finished with a 7-under total of 281. Tammie Green hit a 3-foot birdie putt on the 18th to cap a 4-under-par 68 and finish two strokes back at 6-under 282. Ayako Okamoto matched par "We answered the challenge," said Magic Johnson, who had 14 points, 16 assists and 10 rebounds, his eighth triple-double of the season. "We wanted to play good defense and take the crowd out of the situation. They were No. 1 in rebounding coming in and that was a challenge to us." Dallas was outrebounded 52-40 by the Lakers, who won an NBA-high 15 straight games earlier this season. "They (the Lakers) could have done a big favor for us," Dallas owner Donald Carter said. "If we had walked over 'em it would have given us false confidence and the Lakers might have slaughtered us later. Now we know we need to improve in a lot of areas." Byron Scott scored 28 points to lead the Lakers in scoring for the fourth consecutive game. Mark Aguirre paced Dallas with 27. L.A.

"I really thought it would skip over," Daniel said. Daniel, who hasn't won a tournament since 1985, said she was disappointed with the loss, but isn't giving up. "I've been close three tournaments in a row," Daniel said. "I'll get there." "I don't feel like she gave the tournament away," King said.
