Full Court Press Slows Bucks Celtics Are Confident BOSTON (AP) -- Just five years ago, one or the greatest dynasties in sports history crumbled when Bill "Russell quit as player-coach of the Bofi- lon Celtics. Now. with Coach Tommy Hcinsohn calling the shots and Dave Cowens at Russell's old center position, the Celtics are back--just one victory from being all the way back. With a 3-2 lead over the M i l - waukee Bucks, the Celtics seek their first National Basketball Association championship since 19«9 and their 12th in history tonight in the sixth game of the best-of-seven series at Boston Garden. "We're going to win it." Heinsohn said confidently. "On any givien night either team can win. but we've beaten them twice on their court and now we're back in Boston." "We've put a lot of pressure on ourselves, but it's not over yet," countered Milwaukee Coach Larry Costello. "We hac the same pressure here (fourth game) last Sunday and we won. However, we've got our work cut out." There's a great difference in the Celtics' style from the Russell era. With Russell revolutionizing the game with his defensive genius, the Celtics won 11 NBA titles in 13 years on the shooting of such greats as Bob Cousy, Bill Sharman, Sam Jones and Heinsohn. Now. as Cowens says, "this is a different ball game." The The Adjustment Is Difficult WTT Worries Goolagong Ahead Of Wills' Pace Sf.

CAP Wirephoto) Young Philadelphia Flyers Knock Off Veteran Bruins In NHL Stanley Cup Fight N E W YORK (AP) -- Evonie GoolagonK. star of the Pittsburgh Triangles, has trouble identifying with the concept of World "Team Tennis. She refers to championship competition as "real tennis," says it's still an individual sjibrt and prefers the old hospital corridor hush to the hoot- and-howl game of the new WTT. "Naturally. I'd rather play under conditions I'm used to," the 21-year-old Australian ace said Thursday. "But you can't do anything about it. You can't stand up and say 'Everyone keep quiet, I'm going to serve.' "You just have to realize that your opponent has to put up with the same thing." "I still think tennis is an indl virtual sport," she said when asked about WTT. "You still have to concentrate on yourself. But at the same time, you feel part of a team when you're watching the others play. "And if you make a mistake in 'real tennis,' you have only yourself to blame. But in team tennis, if you make a mistake you're hurting your team. It's like doubles. If you let your partner down you feel terrible . . . I do." Despite the fact that she plays only one set at a time before resting anrl plays two sets night at the most. Miss Goolagong says it won't hurt her endurance for the big tests such as the Australian, French and U.S. Opens, and Wimbledon. "If anything, concentration," it'll she help said. WTT you have to win every game, not just the set. so you have to start concentrating from the beginning. You can't let up." Miss Goolagong already has won the Australian Open this season and plans to take time off from WTT to play in the other events that make up the Big Four of tennis. The only :itle that has eluded her is the Lf.S. Open. She won the French Open and Wimbledon in 1971. BOSTON (AP) -- The Philadelphia Flyers, a comparative National Hockey League infant, have come of age in seven short years, confident of knocking off the Boston Bruins for the coveted Stanley Cup. The Flyers broke an old Boston .tinx and defeated the B r u i n s 3-2 T h u r s d a y night on Bobby Clarke's hard earner goal at 12:01 of sudden deatl: overtime, squaring the best-of- seven series at one game apiece. "Now that we've won here, I surely believe we're going to do it." Philadelphia Coach Fred Shero said before leading the Flyers back home for Game? No, 3 and $ Sunday afternoon and Tuesday night. "This team has so muct courage it's unbelievable.' .' Shero said. "I've never had one like it and I'll never have like it and I'll never have one - lifetime."

"We've never pressed like his, it's phenomenal;" Cowens said. "During the regular sea- on we play a bother press, but his is a different ball game now."
