Warner drove the lane for a air of dunk shots, adding a ee throw after the first one, the last 34 seconds of over- rile. His second basket gave e Milwaukee Bucks a 103-96 ad en route to a 105-98 viclu- ', squaring their National Bas- tlball Association champion- lip playoff series at 1-1. The Celtics battled from a 16- ilnt delicil early in the third larter to lie at 90-90 on two ee throws by John Havlicek ith 58 seconds left in regu- tion, the final points until the 'e minute extra period. The Celtics had two more ianccs to win in regulation id thus take a 2-0 lead in the ?st of seven series back to Boston. However, Milwaukee's 7-foot-2 Kiireem Abdul-Jabbar blocked a shot by Dave Cowens with 10 seconds left, and a j u m p shot by Havlicek rolled off the rim as regulation time expired. The next two games will be in Boston, starting with game three Friday night. SPECTACULAR DUNK The Bucks, leading 9896, called time with 39 seconds lelt in overtime. Oscar Robertson passed inhounds to Warner near midcourt when play ro sumed. Wartier wheeled past Paul Silas, drove (he lane and stuffed in the game's biggest basket. Cowens, who scored 17 p o i n t s a n d grabbed 11 rebounds, fouled out on the play and Warner converted the free throw. "It was the biggest d u n k of the year.

The G-foot-9 Warner, who scored only 11 points but contributed 13 rebounds--eight more than in the Bucks' 98-83 defeat Sunday--said he knew he could beat Silas as soon as he took Robertson's pass. "I was supposed to give it :ack to Oscar, but he was covered," Warner said. "I saw the layup and just decided to take it." Coach Tom Heinsohn said he was proud of his Celtics. "We didn't play our best game and it still took an overtime to heat us," Heinsohn said. "In two games, we won one big and lost the second in an overtime."
