THE BAYTOWN SUN Catledge key Malone's sub carries 76ers *•• Srorrboard By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Terry Catledge's mission was simple in the deciding game of, Philadelphia's playoff series with Washington — take the ball toBol. The 6-foot-8 Catledge, playing center in place of the injured Moses Malone, scored 27 points Sunday, most of them in the first ' half against 7-foot-6 Manute Bol, ,, as the 76ers defeated the Bullets • 134-109 to win their first-round NBA playoff series 3-2. "I was just throwing the ball up every chance I could," Catledge said. "If he (Bol) • blocked it, I was just going to take it right back to him. I was going up as strong as I could. "After my first two or three shots, he stayed off me. I seemed to have more room as the game went on," Catledge, the 76ers' No. 1 draft choice from South Alabama, said. Catledge, who was 13-for-22 from the field, had 21 points in the first half while Bol, also a rookie, finished with no points, two rebounds and one blocked shot. The NBA's leading shot blocker played little in the second half after Philadelphia jumped ahead 70-52 at halftime. Two second-round series had . their openers Sunday, with Boston defeating Atlanta 103-91 and the defending champion Los Angeles Lakers routing Dallas 130-116. On Saturday, Houston beat Denver 126-119 in another second-round opener. The playoffs resume Tuesday with Atlanta at Boston, Denver at Houston and Philadelphia at Milwaukee. On Wednesday, Dallas is at Los Angeles. While Catledge and Charles Barkley, who had 19 points, 15 'rebounds and 12 assists, controlled the Bullets inside, Philadelphia point guard Maurice Cheeks added 24 points and 11 assists before leaving the game in the fourth period with a twisted ankle. Cheeks, whose ankle was to be examined today to determine if he can play In the opener against Milwaukee, said he expects to be ready for the Bucks. Lakers 130, Mavericks 116 Los Angeles, which is yet to be challenged in four playoff games, also rolled to an 18-poinl 'halftime lead and then coasted against Dallas. ; The Lakers, who won their 'first three games by at least 20 'points against San Antonio, led "22-6 midway through the first quarter, shook off a Mavericks' •rally in the second period and then pulled ahead 66-48 at 'halftime. NBA playoffs Los Angeles hit 64.4 percent of its field-goal attempts in the first half, while Dallas made just 35.4 percent. The Mavericks got no closer than 13 points in the second half. Dallas Coach Dick Motta said it was unfair that the Mavericks had to finish their first-round series against Utah on Friday, travel on Saturday and meet the defending champions on Sunday.

"As a professional athlete, you're supposed to deal with everything," Dallas forward Sam Perkins, who missed all but four of his 17 shots, said. Celtics 103, Hawks 91 Kevin McHale sparked Boston on both ends of the court, scoring 24 points and holding NBA scoring champion Dominique Wilkins in check. McHale had six of his points during a 14-0 run in the third quarter than extended a nine- point Celtics lead to 86-63. Only Atlanta's 28-17 advantage In the Fourth period kept the final score respectable. McHale also played the major role in holding Wilkins to four field goals in 15 attempts and 13 points. The victory was Boston's 34th straight at home, setting an NBA record for combined regular- season and playoff homecourt wins. The Celtics broke the Minneapolis Lakers' mark that had stood since 1949-50.

"I feel very confident about our chances Tuesday night," said Danny Schayes, The Nuggets took on the rested Rockets Saturday night In in the first game of their NBA second- round playoff series, and although the Rockets rallied to a 126-119 victory, Denver left the court in an upbeat mood. The second game is scheduled Tuesday night. "We were right there at the end with a chance lo win the game," said Schayes, starting at center for Injured Wayne Cooper. The Nuggets pointed to a 14-0 stretch by Houston in the third quarter as the turning point. v "Other than that one lapse, we could've won the game," said forward Alex English, who scored 34 points. "Even after that, we came back and almost caught them." Houston Coach Bill Fitch said the Rockets will have to do a better job of stopping Denver's outside shooters In the second game of the best of seven series Tuesday night.' "They were throwing up three-pointers like they were nothing," Fitch said. "We'll have to do something about that." The Rockets started slo%vly despite having four days rest after blanking Sacramento 3-0 in their best-of-flve first round series. Rockets guard Robert Reid is ready to meet the challenge. "I Imagine they'll be saying what they could have done with more rest," Reid said. "Well, we'll both have two days lo get ready for the next game so we'll see how it goes." Akeem Olajuwon was the leading scorer with 38 points for the Rockets but he started slowly. "We're ready now," Olajuwon said. "We know this series is going to be a real fight. We'll have to play even harder in the next game." After Tuesday night's game in The Summit, the series will shift to Denver for two games. Additional games, if necessary, would alternate playing sites on a game-by-game basis. Rangers gain spot in semis By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Back In February, no one would have believed the New York Rangers or Hartford Whalers would still be playing hockey at this time of year, no less winning key games in the NHL's Stanley Cup playoffs. But that Is exactly what has happened. With their 2-1 victory over the Washington Capitals Sunday night, the surprising Rangers clinched the Patrick Division title and moved into the semifinal round of the playoffs. NHL playoffs The Whalers, meanwhile, beat the Montreal Canadiens to force a seventh and deciding game in the Adams Division playoffs. The winner gets to meet the Rangers, who have knocked off two of the highest regarded teams in the league, first the Philadelphia Flyers and then the Capitals. Perhaps even a bigger shock is Calgary's lead over Edmonton in the Smythe final, which resumes with Game 6 tonight in Calgary with the Flames holding a 3-2 lead over the defending Stanley Cup champions. A loss would end the Oilers' two-year reign and send the Flames Into the Campbell Conference final against the winner of the Norris Division series between St. Louis and Toronto. The Blues hold a 3-2 lead in that one. with Game 6 scheduled for tonight in Toronto. Rangers 2, Capitals 1 The Rangers got two goals from Pierre Larouche and an outstanding performance In goal from John Vanbiesbrouck to beat the Capitals. The Rangers won their first division title by playing brilliantly In a low-scoring, high-tension contest between two of the NHL's top defensive teams. Whalers 1, Canadlena 0 Mike Llut, back In goal alter missing two games because of an injury, stopped 32 shots and Kevin Dlneen scored his sixth goal of the playoffs to lead the Whalers over the Canadiens. Patrick Roy. the Canadiens' 20-year-old rookie goalje, had another outstanding game. Pantoja defeated DEER PARK - Deer Park handed Robert E. Lee pitcher Tommy Pantoja his first loss of the season Saturday, as the Deer earned a 13-1 victory In District 23-5A junior varsity baseball action. Pantoja saw his record drop to 5-1. Lee is 14-5-1 overall and 9-4 in the district. It will finish the 1986 season at 7 p.m. today at Pasadena High. Chuck Goodman and Thomas Mayo led Lee's batters against Deer Park with two hits each.

(AP) — Maybe It's Mogam- "bo's time to run a winning race again. At least 'trainer Leroy Jolley Is hoping so since Saturday's Kentucky Derby will be the colt's next start. '. Mogambo figures to be no better than third choice behind Snow Chief and Badger Land in the first leg of thoroughbred racing's Triple Crown. A jfield of about 15 3-year-olds Is expected for the I'A- rnile classic. '. Mogambo has four victories in 11 career starts, tout has yet to put together two winning races. t There have been some fmpresslve victories for the strapping chestnut colt named after the 1954 movie starring Ciark Gable and Grace Kelly. The plot In that drama concerned a gorilla hunt. The plot in this one is to determine whether Snow Chief, winner of ftve straight races, actually Is a super horse. "Maybe it's his time to win," Jolley said Sunday after putting Mogambo through his first workout on the track at Churchill Downs. With regular rider Jacinto Vasquez aboard the son of Mr. Prospector-Lakeville Miss, Mogambo did six furlongs In 1:11 1-5 and galloped out seven furlongs in 1:242-5. Jolley and Vasquez are a team which clicked for Derby victories with Foolish Pleasure in 1975 and , the filly Genuine Risk in 1980. 421 -COOL 421- taOur BavTemperature Control (nc. 5115N.
