McFADDEN MOTORS Corner 2nd Avt. ttti 81. t.' PbontM7-72W Barry sat on bench THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Bill Fitch says he knows the best way to keep Golden State's Rick Barry from wrecking the rest of the National Basketball Association. "The way you have to play Barry is to run him at both ends of the Cleveland's coach said after his Cavaliers overhauled the Warriors 96-93 in Thursday night's only NBA game. But there's an even better way. Keep him on the bench. That's where Barry was for most, of the fourth period, when the Cavs shot into the lead and pulled away for the victory. In the American Basketball Association, Indiana beat Vir- ginia 107-105, Memphis beat St. Louis 120-114 and Denver defeated Utah 116-112. Barry's late-game due to a slight ankle wasn't the only thing that hurt Golden State. Bad shooting and ball-handling contributed to the downfall. "We just ran into a very cold spot at the end of the third quarter and it carried over into the said Warriors' coach Al Attles.

Esposito and Orr didn't do much Thursday night and the Bruins went down to a 3-1 de- feat at the hands of Buffalo Sabres. Esposito, the National Hockey League's leading scorer with 52 goals and 53 points, didn't even get a shot at Sabres goalie Gary Bromley. Orr picked up an assist on Boston's only goal and reached the 100-pomt mark for the sixth consecutive season, but the superstar defenceman, who has 33 goals, managed just two shots on the Buffalo net. "When Esposito and Orr don't get shots, you know we're in said coach Don Cherry. The second-place Bruins trail Buffalo by nine points in the Adams Division race. "It will be very hard to catch Buffalo Cherry admitted. In other NHL games, Phila- delphia Flyers ended a three- game skid by beating Chicago- Black Hawks 4-1 and Kansas City Scouts defeated Washing- ton Capitals 5-1. Rene Robert, Rick Dudley and Rick Martin got the Buf- falo goals as the Sabres scored once early in each period. Bromley blanked the Bruins for almost 57 minutes but Boston's Bobby Schmautz scored when the Sabres had two men in the penalty box. "We tried to keep the puck in their said Don Luce, who shadowed Esposito most of the game. "You have to keep on Esposito and Orr. You can't let Esposito get going." Buffalo coach Floyd Smith wasn't buying Cherry's vir- tual concession of first place to the Sabres. "There's still a long way to he warned. "The Bruins aren't.dead yet. They'll be heard from. But it was a big win for our kids because it shows they can win an impor- tant game when they have to. "We did nothing special to stop Esposito except the peo- ple on the ice paid special attention and whenever Esposito got the puck someone would be near him and make him give it up." Rick MacLeish, recently moved to Philadelphia's top line to add some scoring punch, scored the Flyers' go- ahead goal, his 20th of the season, and set up two other scores as the defending Stanley Cup champions increased their Patrick Divi- sion lead to nine points over New York Rangers. Wilf Paiement scored two goals to lead the Kansas City' attack. Kansas City leads Washington 3-0 in the season series between the two expan- sion clubs.
