AHtanm T1MCS, Sun., Mcry 12, 1974 Will Settle Championship Sunday Bucks, Celts Review Sixth Came MILWAUKEE (AP) - The championship ot the National Basketball Association is on the line--but to Milwaukee's Cornell Warner, the showdown against Boston will be almost anti-climactic "This game should have been the stventh game. It has got to be one of the best ever." the Bucks' forward said Friday night after Milwaukee forced Sunday's seventh and decisive game in the championship series with a 102-101 double- overtime victory over the Celtics In what Warner and most other participants agreed was one of the most remarkable games ever played. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, the Bucks' 7-foot-2 center and the NBA's Most Valuable Player, scored the winning points on an 18-foot running hook shot, culminating a broken play with three seconds left. The victory, witnessed by 15, 320 emotionally drained fans in :he Boston Garden and a rat i o n a 1 television audience, squared the best-of-seven series al 3-3. The decisive game, also nationally televised starting at 2 p.m.. EDT. will be at the Milwaukee Arena, where the Celt- have won two of three games in the series. NO ADVANTAGE "The home-court advantage Has been a strange thing in this series." Bucks Coach Larry Costello said. "But the percentages say it's a good thing. I'll take the percentages." Boston's John Havlicek, who poured in 11 of his 36 points in the overtime periods Friday night, said the percentages were solidly against Abdul-Jabbar making his winning shot. "It was about 18 feet," Havll- cek said. "He was on the run and he actually ended up shooting it from behind the basket. Now tell me that's not a tough shot."

MUFFLER of raytttaville SPRING SPECIAL Deluxe Mufflers $13.88 bit ailed and Guaranteed 101-100 lead with a 15-foot jump shot from the baseline with seven seconds left In the second overtime. The Bucks called time out to plot a desperation shot, then passed the ball inbounds at center court when play resumed. Costeilo said guard Jon McGlocklin was supposed to break from the baseline to the right of the key to receive the pass from Oscar Robertson. McGlocklin, considered the Bucks' best pure shooter, was to either shoot from about 20 feet or pass to Abdul-Jabbar underneath, WANTED SPEED "We wanted to get our speedy guys and our best shooters in there, hoping to get them matched up with Paul Silas,' Costello said. "The shot was supposed to be taken by whoever had Silas on him, either Mickey Davis or Jon.' 1 The Buck; expected Silas would guard McGlocklin, but he picked up Davis instead when the teams ImpH irn fiir Kin in xunds pass. McGlocklin and Davis then shitted positions but, in a mix- up, both were on the led side of ihe baseline. Abdul-Jabbar, who then became the Milwaukee player closest to Robertson, broke toward center court to receive the pass. He grabbed the ball, dribbled toward the right corner and arched his sky-hook shot. DID ALL HE COULD "I played it about as well as I could have." said 7-foot Hank Finkel, at center for Boston with .Dave Cowens having fouled out. "I made him take an extra step. But you don't stop a great shooter like he is.' "I wouldn't trade that basket for any other one I've made," Abdul-Jabbar said. "I think both clubs came very close to exhaustion. I saw a lot of guys walking out there." The Celtics called time with three seconds left and planned a shot for guard Jo Jo White who passed the ball inbounds to 'aul Westphal. "The guy who takes the ban out usually is ignored. We :hought Jo Jo could get a shot," Westphal said. But White, pressured by Robertson, had to shoot from 30 [eet and the ball was far off "I'd like a photo of that hook shot by Kareem," Costello said.

"Some players, like Bobby Orr, have more skills, but they don't do as much on the ice. Clarke shoots, he skates, he's strong."

Pondexter No Longer Member Of Long Beach State Team LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) -- IOSCOR Pondexter, involved in court case regarding his eligibility last season, was declared no longer a member of the Long Beach State basketball team Saturday by school officials. Pondexter, 21. left on an Amateur Athletic Union tour of Europe and Russia Friday night, a school spokesman said, and that's against National Collegiate Athletic Association rules. Pondexter is a 6-foot-7, 230-pound who averaged 15.6 points per game last year for the 49ers. who were 24-2. Pondexter and teammate Menn McDonald were ruled ineligible midway through last season by the school, when the NCAA ruled they hadn't taken a grade-predictability test. An attorney took the case to court he abridged without due process and he nullified the ruling made by the school under orders from the NCAA. Pondexter would have been senior next year if a schoo hearing went in his favor but that ruling now is moot. Pondexter and his brother Clifton, an 18-year-old fresh man, have filed hardship petitions with the National Basketball Associaton and may elect to pass up the rest o their college careers for a sho at pro basketball. Cliton, 6-8 is considered the better playei of the two. and players, judge, ruled that civil rights could Split Matches DUSSELDORF, German (AP) -- Spain and West Ger many split their opening single matches Saturday in European Zone Davis Cup tennis com petition.

When we hit some adversity, we all tried to blame each other instead of looking at ourselves in the mirror. We just didn't have the character to get back on the track." But back to the present, Mike has not signed a 1974 contract with Chicago, and says, "If I don't, this will be my option year." He will go along if the players decide to strike: "There will be a strike if management doesn't come up with something pretty quick -- at least meet us half way."
