Santa Price 1889 1 SEE PAGE- No one wants to lose Uy THE ASSOCIATED PRESS There's a world of difference between the champion New York Knicks and the hapless Cleveland Cavaliers, but coach Bill Fitch complains that other National Basketball Association teams "qet up for us just like they do for the Knicks." After all, he says, "Who wants to be the first established club to lose to The Knicks don't, although it was hard to tell during Tuesday night's lethargic first period, which ended with Cleveland on top 23-22. Then, Walt Frazier, Dave Stallworth and Mike Rior- dan combined for a J5-2 burst to start the second period and the Knicks were off and running to a 110-92 triumph. Elsewhere in the NBA, Buf- falo Braves nipped Los Angeles Lakers 113-111 in overtime, Chi- cago Bulls trimmed Baltimore Bullets 115-97, Philadelphia '76ers trounced San Diego Rick- ets J22-98. San Francisco War- riors defeated Phoenix Suns 129-123 and Detroit Pistons beat Portland Trailbters 111-103. Cleveland's loss to the Knicks was the fifth in a row and 32nd in 34 starts for the first-year expansion team. Despite New York's 15-2 ;purt, the Cavaliers stayed within range until the Knicks ran off 15 consecutive points late in the third period for an 81-57 bulge. TRAILED BY 18 POINTS George Wilson's basket with one second left in overtime ena- bled Buffalo to nip Los Angeles. The Lakers, who trailed by 18 points in the first period, needed a 10-2 burst in the final five minutes of regulation play to force the overtime. Philadelphia built an early I9-point bulge, held off a third- >eriod San Diego rally and .rimmed (he Rockets as Jim Washington scored 20 points. Bob Love, in trouble with five personal fouls, sparked a minute outburst in the final quarter that enabled Chicago to pull away from Baltimore. After 16 Ues, Fritz Williams, Jeff Mullins and Nick Jones lelped San Francisco build a 13-point lead early in the fourth I period and that proved too much for Phoenix to overcome. Jerry Lucas led the winners with 26 points and Mullins had 24. Minor puck In Bantam "B" action last night the Hornets slapped in three goals in both the first and third periods as they blanked the Ramblers 6-0. Brian Thorlacius, Dale Pyl- cia, Kenny Hall, Brian Mal- acko, Allan Boras and Bruce Mock all blasted in one goal each for the Hornets. A big third period carried the A.C.T. past the Stampeders in midget action. Reg Osmond, Joe Meli, and Bayden Pilling scored in the last 20 minutes to give the A.C.T. a 4-1 win. Meli had opened the scoring in the sec- ond period for the winners. Kevin Morris scored the lone Stampeder marker. A goal in each period gave the Canucks a 3-0 win over the Flyers in Pee Wee action. Bruce Quick. Gary DcGroot and Kelly Danielson accounted for the Canuck markers. Tim Richards recorded the shutout, ft was second in-a-row and fourth of the season. The surprising Canucks, in their first season in UKJ NHL, have 29 points and arc in fourth place in the East, five points ahead of Detroit Red Wings and only three bcliind Montreal Can- adiens.

HALL SPAKKLES St. Louis goaltender Glen Hall sparkled in victory, turnin aside 38 shots while his team mates tested Cesar Maniag just 2L times. Sutherland, a 36-year-old fro Rcgina who spent most of hi pro career in the minor leagues didn't notch his first goal of th season until mid-November. His two goals against tb North Stars, both from directly in front of Maniago, were hi fifth and sixth of the campaigi and gave the Blues a 2-0 lead ii front of St. Louis fans.

Buste Harvey was serving a cany over minor sentence when Suth erland fought off Minnesota de fenceman Fred Barrett to ba the puck in at the 3G-secom mark of the second period. Kurtenbach was drafted fron New York last June specifically for his leadership qualities on the ice. Whatever scoring they real ized from the former policeman with New York and Boston clubs would reflect even more on Vancouver management's decision to pick up the veteran whose NHL future was question able after a spinal fusion had limited his career during the two previous seasons. The Cudworth, centre also assisted on Vancou ver's second goal and movef into fifth place in the individua scoring race with 34 points in 32 games. UNHAPPY AT OUTCOME Philadelphia coach Vic Stas- iuk felt the game should at least have ended in a tie after Flyers' Jean-Guy Gendron's shot ap- peared to him to have crossed ANDY CAPP HI'VER.KIO-I'VE BROUGHT A BOTTLED'STOUT SACK FOR.

However, goal judge Jim McGowan and referee Bill Fri- day, who was following up on the play, ruled otherwise, say- ing that Vancouver goalie Char- lie Hodge had grabbed the puck while it was still on the line. "With refereeing like that, it's no wonder they (Vancouver) have a 10-3 record at said Stasiuk as he paced back- and-forlh in front of the Phila- delphia dressing room. The referee was out in the middle of the ice when he made the call instead of being on the play. How the hell could he have called the play from out [here when I know he couldn't have seen Asked wiry he thought the ref- eree made the call, Stasiuk an- swered: "Because the guy is a they were all homers.
