2-C—LUBBOCK AVALANCHE-JOURNAL— Monday Evening. Aprit 7. 1975 Nets Post Win Over St. Louis Colonels, Nuggets Nab Playoff Edge By Tb« Associated Pr*$» When the New York Nets need a start, Bill Melcln'onnl's got the spark to do It. The Nets' machine was stalled Sunday until their play- making guard got into the same—and then it was full speed ahead en route- to a 111105 American Basketball Association playoff victory over the Spirits of St, Louis. "I thought Melchionni was the total difference," said New York coach Kevin Loughery after his club took a 1-0 lead In the best-of-seven Eastern Division series."He got the ball to the right spot every time. No question that Mel will get more playing time. The team needed movement when at the time I put him in—and thy got it." Melchionni was recognized as New York's Most Valuable P'layer Sunday without scoring a point. St. Louis was winning 87-81 with 10 minutes to play when Melchionnt came off the bench and turned the game around. Melchionni, a one time stater shunted to reserve status, ran the Net offense with an iron hand and collected six assists to help New York pull away. "Just before I went in Loughery told me to gel ready," said Melchionni. ": looked at the game a nd decided what I had to do when I got in." In other playoff games Sun day, the Kentucky Colonels beat the Memphis Sounds 98-91 in the Eastern Division and the Denver Nuggets stopped the opener. teU Utah Stars 122-107 In the West Along with Melchionni's guiding force in the late stages, the Nets got a 32-point performance from Julius Erving and 24 from Billy Paultz. who hit 11 of 12 shots from the field. "In the third period when ] got the hot hand, they started setting up plays for me,' 1 said Faults. "When Melchionni came in, instead of getting jumpers, I was getting dunk shots. He's always been one of the premier playmakers in the deague. When he gets a lot of playing time, he's always among the top assist men." Colonels 98, Sounds 9l Artis Gilmore scored 25 points to lead Kentucky over Memphis. The Colonels never trailed after the closing minutes of the first period, although Memphis was able to close within two points, at 8583, with five minutes remaining in the game. Still. Kentucky coach Hubie Brown wasn't pleased with his team's performance. "We left a lot to be desired in terms of intensity," noted Brown. "You're supposed to get up there and play in the playoffs." Nupgets 122, Stars 107 Ball-hawking guards Mack Calvin and Fatty Taylor ignited Denver's racehorse offense to help the Nuggets whip Utah. The Nuggets, who led 53-51 at the half, scored seven straight points early in the third period to take a 60-53 lead they never relinquished. Denver had eight players in double figures, led by Ralph Simpson's 20 points.

(AP Wirephoto) Knictcs Grab 10th NBA Playoff Spot By The Associated Press For the ninth straight year, the New York Knicks arc a shoo-in for the National Basketball Association playoffs. But this time it's a pretty tight fit. The Knicks, who used to breeze into the playoffs in pasl years, had to squeeze in this time—and in fact needed the help of another team to do il Sunday. The Knicks beat the Buffalo Braves 105-93 and then had to sweat out Kansas City-Omaha's S5-9-1 victory over the Cleveland "avaliers. The results gave both teams identical season- ending records of -10-42, but the Knicks claimed the wild-card berth because they beat the Cavaliers 3-1 in their season series. "We really played like the Knicks of old," said Walt Frazier, who led the Knicks with 26 points. "The bail was zinging around and \vc were really moving. Buffalo likes to do a ot of switching on defense, and wo made them pay for it. We 'ound the open man." "For pride's sake, it always s nice to get into the playoffs," added Frazior's backcourt mate, Earl Monroe. The Knicks landed the 10th and last berth and will face Houston Tuesday night in the opener of the Eastern Conference playoffs. In another first- round game Tuesday night, Seattle will play Detroit in the Western Conference. In other games Sunday, the Washington Bullets -beat the S T ew Orleans Jazz 119-103; the Petty, Foyt Cop Racing Trophies Fly The Associated Press Richard Petty «nd A.J. Foyt, rated by many to be the best race drivers America has produced, added victories to already bulging trophy cases during the weekend. Petty, already a $1.82 million winner in stock cars, rode his red and blue Dodge to an overwhelming victory in the 230- mile Gwyn Staley Memorial Grand National race at North Wilkesboro. N.C., on Sunday. It was the 37-year-old Petty's 18th carer triumph, his 12th in 28 starts on the five-eighths of a mile North Carolina oval and his fourth in seven outings this year. Foyt, racing's all-time money winner with more than S3 million in ,1 career span that matches Pety's 17 years, beat 1074 Indiana polls winner Johnny Rutherford to the wire to capture the Trenton 200 for U.S. Auto Club championship cars. The 40-year-old Foyl. known variously as "Super Tex" and "Tough Tony," established a new race record of 154.625 miles per hour for the 1.5 mile Trenton Fairgrounds layout. Petty, toiling on a much smaller oval, the rustic North around for two hours. 46 minutes and 33 seconds to beat the Chevrolet-driving Cale Yarborough by almost four laps. Foyt, taking home the 50th career victory in the hot USAC championship cnrs, now has won three of his four starts this year and appears an odds-on favorite to pick up an unprecedented fourth triumph at Indianapolis, the next stop on the I USAC tour. The Texan started 10th in the line-up at Trenton—rain canceled time trials Saturday and forced the drivers to draw starting assignments from a hat—but lie grabbed the lead on the 21st lap and never was headed. The race was run without a yellow light being shown as Mike Moscley came home third, Wally Dallanbach fourth and Tom Sneva fifth. Petty lost the front row pole position at North Wilkesboro to upstart Chevrolet driver Darrell Waltrip of Franklin, Tenn. But he beat Waltrip to the slaj-ting line and was never worse than fifth in the early stages. He was in and out of the load several times before taking command for good at the ]59th lap. His average speed was 90.009 m.p.h., held down by four yellow lights involving 34 laps. His share of the purse was 56,675. Foyt was paid about $15,000. Placing third behind Petty and Yarboc-oufch was Buddy Baker in a Ford. Dave Marcis drove n Dodge to fourth place while 1973 Grand National Rookiq of the Year Lennic Pond came in fifth in a Chevrolet. Waltrip led the race briefly between laps five and 17, but faded after that and wound up seventh behind Benny Parsons, the recent Daylona 500 winner.

"But it's over now; it doesn't count any more." So Orr will lead Uie Bruins against the Black Hawfcs Tuesday night in a game that worries Chicago coach Billy Reay. "We didn't win a crucial game all year," said Reay after Tony JEsposlto's 52nd career shutout and sixth of the season. "We played a lot of crucial games this season and fell down each time.

Goals by Doug Jarrett, Ivan Boldirev and Cliff Koroll lifted Reay Into a tie with Toe Biakc 'or second place among all- time coaching leaders. "But it's a little hollow after last Saturday night, when the Hawks lost their hopes of finishing second in Division 2. Islanders 6, Hangers 4 The Islanders and Rangers previewed their first-round series with the third-year Islanders scoring their second straight triumph over their intra-city rivals. "It took 80 games to prove we belong in the playoffs," said veteran Ed Westfall of the Islanders, who will lead his club into its first playoff ever against a team that has been in contention—but hasn't won tlte Cup—for the last eight years. "Maybe they'll choice again," hoped Islanders' goalie Glenn Res oh. ( Mapi e Leafs 4, Bndns 4 "Orr looks ready. I hope ev- srybody else is," said Rruins' coach Don Cherry after the tie. Cherry will find out Tuesday night when, Orr says, "We're going to surprise a lot of people." Flyers R, Flames 2 Bernie Parent won his second consecutive Vezina Trophy as he league's top goalie and the Flyers won the home ice advantage for every round they play in the playoffs with the victory over the Flames. They von the Division 1 bye by clinching first last month. Goals by Bob Kelly and Bill Clement helped Philadelphia carry a 14-game unbeaten streak into the playoffs while the Flames packed their bags and headed home.

The expansion Scouts finished their opening season with 15 victories. 54 losses and 11 ties. Hull Sets Record In Season Finale By The Associated Press Bobby Hull broke Phil Esposito's goal scoring record with his T7th tally of the season Sunday night, but be and his Winnipeg Jets face a long summer while eight'other World Hockey Association clubs prepare for the playoffs. Hull wound up with a sparkling 142 points in 78 games x adding 65 assists to his goal output. But he finished second in scoring to San Diego's Andre Lacroix, who amassed 41 goals and 106 assists to lead the Mariners into a post-season series with the Toronto Toros. The two finished their regular seasons as the Jets and Mariners tied 5-5 Sunday night. Other best-of-seven first- round series will match the Cleveland Crusaders against the defending champion Houston Aeros, the Minnesota Fighting Saints against the East Division champion New England Whalers, and the expansion Phoenix Roadrunners against the Canadian Division titlist Quebec Nordiques. "Missing the playoffs is a letdown," said Hull, the 36-year- old left wing. "Yet everything we've been able to do as line kind of heals the wound a little." Hull's line, with Ulf Nilsson at center and Anders Hedberg on right wing, accounted for 156 goals, including 5.T by Hedberg in his first professional season. "What happened this year ,vas just because of those *uys." Hull said. "Everything that happened was because . .. we played unselfishly all year." Meanwhile, the Vancouver Blazers trimmed the Indianapolis Racers 4-3, and the Edmonton Oilers beat the Chicago Cougars 6-3. Hull's historic 'goal came at 19:26 of the middle period, on a wrist shot from just inside the blue line that beat Mariners net 'minder Russ Gillow.

Frank Mahovlich and Wayne Dillon got Toronto's goals. Blazers 4, Racers 3 Vancouver clinched fourth place in the Canadian Division behind two goals by Hugh I .ar- ris.
