ALTON PLAZA SHOPPING CENTER DIAL 465-4271 OPEN DAILY 8 AM TO S PM By BRUCE LOWITT Writer Spencer Haywood did his thing once again—and Baltimore joined the list of National Basketball Association teams doing theirs. Haywood, recently signed by Seattle after becoming disenchanted with his contract with Denver of the rival American Basketball Association, was on the court again Tuesday night. But the 6-foot-9 star, last season's ABA Most Valuable Player, couldn't keep the Bullets from snooting down the SuperSonics 10D-101. hi other NBA action, Detroit whipped Atlanta 98-90, Portland edged Boston 124120, Philadelphia beat San Francisco 97-92, Chicago clubbed San Diego 116-103 and Cincinnati stomped Los Angeles 146-112. In the ABA, Indiana nipped Memphis 9288, Texas blitzed Pittsburgh 142-133 and Utah trimmed Denver 114-99. Despite winning, the Bullets announced they were filing a protest against Haywood's presence, becoming the sixth NBA tiQam to take issue with Seattle's acquisition of the former University of Detroit star. The clubs contend the Sonics violated an NBA rule which prohibits the signing of a player before his college class is graduated. Haywood, whose class graduates this June, turned pro after his sophomore year. Several teams are also insisting that Haywood's name be placed in the upcoming NBA draft and say Seattle's action could result in wholesale raids of college players by the pros. But Len Wilkens, the Sonics' player-coach, replied: "We're not the ones who are violating the rules. The ABA already has. "He's not a college player," Wilkens said. "He's a pro. He is in the open market. I get •tired of other teams suing us because we signed him. They Wanted to sign him too." Wilkens led Seattle against Baltimore with 27 points while Haywood scored 14, equalling the output in his NBA debut Monday night, a 124-110 loss in Milwaukee. The Bullets, overcoming a nine-point deficit, rallied in the final period as Earl Monroe hit 10 of his 24 for points. Gus Johnson also tallied 24 for the Central Division leaders. Howard Komives' six points in the final four minutes enabled the Pistons to break an 86-86 tie and pull away from Atlanta. Otto Moore topped Detroit with 22. Lou Hudson of the Hawks hit 32. Portland opened a 12-point fourth-quarter lead, then had to scramble to fight off Boston in the opener of a doubleheader in Philadelphia's S,p e c t r u m . Geoff Petrie > and Rick Adelman, who led the Trail Blazers with 28 and 27 points respectively, hit the clutch baskets that sank the Celtics, led by JoJo White with 24.
