Lakers look flashy, but credit good, hard defense with wins By KEN PETERS AP Sports Writer LOS ANGELES (AP) Most noticeable about the Los Angeles Lakers is their freewheeling, flashy, fastbreak offense. But they seem to think good defense has put them where they are The Lakers are sitting atop NaUoul Buketbill Auociation , ,, , Pl«yo«s At AGUnce , , ,, By The Associated Press CONFERENCE FINALS Be*t of Seven Eutern Conference Sunday's Game Boston 121, Philadelphia 81 Wednndiy'i Game 12 Philadelphia at Boston, (n) Saturday, May IS Boston at Philadelphia Sunday, May 1« Boston at Philadelphia Wednesday, May » Philadelphia at Boston, (n), if necessary Friday, May 21 Boston at Philadelphia, (n), if necessary Sonday, May 23 Philadelphia at Boston, TEA, if neces- Weilcrn Conference Sunday'i Gune La* Angeles 128, San Antonio 117 TowUy'i Game La Angela 110, San Antonio, 101, LA leadt aeries 2-0 Friday, May 14 La Angeles at Sin Antonio, (n) Saturday.

They whipped the Spurs . 110401 Tuesday night after taking the opener 128-117 two days earlier. The best-of- seven series now shifts to San Antonio, with the third and fourth games on Friday and Saturday. Reflecting on Tuesday night's game, Lakers Coach Pat Riley said, "Our defense was just excellent again...and we did a good job of dominating the defensive boards." "Overall, I think our defense won out," said Los Angeles forward Jamaal Wilkes, whose 22 points shared Laker high-point honors, with guard Norm Nixon. "Another great team effort defensively." Laker center Kareem AbduI-Jabbar, who had 16 points in the victory, said: "Our defensive play has been very consistent. It seems when we play a hard defensive game, our fastbreak works better." , Mike Mitchell scored 34 points for the Spurs, but the Lakers did a solid job defensively on league scoring leader George Gervin. He wound up with 48 points, just shghty over half his average, and had only three points in the first half. "We tried to deny George the ball at-all times,"'said Wilkes. "I play him one-on- one, but as soon as he puts the ball on the floor, we double- team him. It seems to be working and I think that's been the key to stopping them." The Lakers rallied from a 79-78 deficit at the end of three quarters, pulling awav to a 10-point lead before the final period was half finished. "They were able to pick up a lot of loose balls in the fourth quarter and turn them into fastbreaks," said San Antonio The Lakers displayed depth and balance in the victory Kurt Rambis led Los Angeles in rebounds with 15, while Earvin "Magic" Johnson had 19 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists. Resen/es Mike Cooper and Bob McAdoo had 12 and 11 points. Dave Corzine came off the bench to score 23 points for the Spurs, and Mark Olberding chipped in 16 points Armored tanks of the animal world, turtles are perhaps the most bizarre o! all living critters Evolving over 200 million vcors ago during the Triassic Period of the earth's development. they are the oldest living group of reptiles found on the planet Thi-ir survival success is not so puzzling!

The Fishing Derby is being held to raise funds to fight soil erosion in this county. Prizes will be given away to the top fishermen that catch largemouth bass, channel catfish and bluegill. "This is a promotion for the SWCD and the SCS to raise money through the Fishing Derby to fight soil erosion, because the County Court was not able to provide any funds this year," said Samuel Walker, Conservationist for the SCS. The Fishing Derby will begin at 7 a.m. and end at 7 p.m. on the 22nd. The Missouri Conservation Department shocked Doughty's 9.5 acre pond Monday afternoon and found an abundance of bass and bluegill in the waters and a recommendation was made by Fisheries Biologist Mack Ellis that instant fishing pressure was needed at the site. Included in the survey wad a bass that weighed over four pounds. Larger fish have been taken from the pond, according to Doughty. -Walker said that a fee of $1 will be charged to those 16 years of age and under and a $2.50 fee will be assessed to those 17 years of age and older. , Refreshments will be sold at the site, as well. Prizes to be, given away include tackleboxes, gift certificates, fishing lures, rods and reels, and the Grand Prize will see the District provide · free taxidermy mounting of the largest fish caught. Merchants who have donated prizes to the event include the Chillicothe Sports Center, Park Center Liquor and Sporting Goods, Matco, Wal-Mart ;d L ft O Safes. .Coach Stan Albeck.J'I think_~^rvi n -.. a - sked wna t-the "BieturnovenraliiUmnie Laker gpurTmusTdoto bounce lack" layups at the "Start of the , n the senes, said: "Play bet- fourth quarter turned things ter, it's just that simple Some around." of us are shooting well and some of us aren't.
