Milwaukee Plans No Big Changes Before Second Playoff Game MILWAUKEE (AP) - The Milwaukee Bucks plan no drastic'.style changes, but count on oelter execution tonight in :iopcs of squaring their National Basketball Association cham- jionship playoff series with the Boston Celtics, The Celtics, scoring 15 has- Youthful Nets Eager For ABA Court Crown UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) -'This team is hungry," said Coach Kevin Loughery as he an his youthful New York Nets hrough their f i n a l workout be ore 'tonight's opening game of he American Basketball Association championship playoffs igainst the Utah Stars. "They want this title, and hey know what' they have to do o get it," Loughery added. What they have to do is beat he Stars, a veteran team .viiich thrives on playoff pres sure and which has an over- vhelming edge in experience over Ihe Nels. who do not have a starter over 25. The Stars are a veteran unit--and a good one. They're he only t e a m , to win 50 or more games in each of the past Our seasons, when Ihey reached eilher the championship playoffs or the semifinal round. But the Stars will he missing veteran center Zelmo Beaty vhcn they lake the floor at the Massau Coliseum tonight. He nissed the last three games of lie Stars' playoff series with ndiana because of a leg in- eclion and did not make the rip to New York. Gerald Govan. a good defen- ive player but not much of an ffensive Ihreat, replaces him. Thai means Govan probably vill not be assigned to cover ulius Erving. the Nets' ex- )losive forward and the ABA's nost valuable player, as he .sually does. That assignment may go to Villie Wise, who limited In- iana's George McGinnis to -ist 14 points in the seventh ame of their series Saturday ight. The Stars have had their roubles against the Nets at the Coliseum. In four regular sea- on meetings. New York won npressively each time--114-94, 05-92, 120-109 and 97-76. The *Jets won five of eight meetings n all. Overall, however, Utah had a l i g h t l y better home-court ecorrl than New York. The tars were 33-9 in the Salt Palce while the, Nels wore 31-11 t the Nassau Coliseum. Utah will count en its back- ourt Id provide most of the coring p u n c h . The Stars have pair of solid veterans in start- rs Ron Boone and Jimmy ones. and reserves Rick rtount and Johnny Neumann re both excellent shooters. In the NBA championship layoffs, the Boston Celtics. 383 winners in the series opener unday. will take on the Mil- w a u k e e Bucks at the Milwaukee Arena in Game 2 onight. kels on fast breaks and stiflinj Ihe Bucks' offense with a fill court pressing defense, woii 98-83 Sunday for a 1-0 lead in the best-of-scvcn series. Coach Tom Heinsohn said Monday the Celtics will use the same pressure tactics in tonight's nationally televised game (51:30 p.m., EOT). The third and f o u r t h games will be in Boston Friday and Sunday. "We feel we have people we can win with," Bucks' Coach Larry Costcllo said. "We're going to play thp way we've been playing, the way we've been winning. "But we can't score 83 points again or we're going to be shut out four to zero in this scries." he said. "We know the Bucks are a great basketball team and it's going to be a very tough series," Heinsohn said. "But we've shown we're capable of playing our style. They still have to establish that they can play their style. "Obviously, they'll try to do something about onr press," he said. "I'm sure thc-y'l! make some changes. But I'll tell you something. I looked at tile films this morning, and I think we can press even better." Costello said forwards Bob Dandridge and Mickey Davis may see some duty at guard to spell 35.-v.ear-old Oscar Robertson. Robertson had to play all hut two minutes Sunday because a pulled calf muscle sidelined Jon McGlocklin, the Bucks' top reserve guard, in the second q u a r t e r . C o s t e l l o said McGlocklin will not play tonight and his availability later in the scries is questionable. Robertson scored only two baskets, one a tip-in, in 13 shots Sunday. Costello said the Celtics' pressure wore him down. "The Bucks just like to play their style, a slowdown style." Heinsohn said. "If,'s like whether you prefer to boogaloo or waltz. I don't think it's condi- lioning because they've played 100 games, tot). But they haven't (lanced Ihe boogaloo. like us. They've waltzed." Boston's 6-foot-9 cenlcr Dave Cowens, who contributed 19 points and 17 rebounds Sunday, said the Celtics are physically capable of suslaining their all- out running game. Cowens played most of the lime at the lop of the key or at a forward position. Milwaukee's 7 foot-2 Kareem Abdul-Jabbar lad to play outside to guard Cowens. which opened up the middle for the Celtics.
