Lanier playi with Detroit Pistons and Coweni with the Boston Celtics. NBA All-Star game wasn't a mismatch LOS ANGELES (AP) Tile Eastern All-Stars proved that speed and defence can offset height and strength. Almost. In the final outcome, though, it was Jerry West's 20-foot jump shot with one second left Tues- day night that provided the West team with its second con- secutive National Basketball As- sociation All-Star game victory, 112-110. West was named most' valua- ble player of the 2M annual A bad month for Clifford TRENTON, Ont. (CP) Betsy Clifford, Canada's best hope for an Olympic ski medal until she was sidelined by injuries Sunday, says her Olympic hopes are ended. Interviewed here Monday night on her way home to Ot- tawa, Miss Clifford said she WiJI still be wearing casts on both her legs when the Olym- pic Winter Games start Feb. 3 in Sapporo, Japan. What about the next Winter Olympics in 1976? "Next time? I couldn't go that too long." Miss Clifford, 18, fractured her right ankie and left heel in a fall during a practice ses- sion Sunday at Grindelwald, Switzerland, where women's World Cup races are taking place. She said she wasn't worried about her own injuries but was hurrying home to Ottawa to see her fiance, Jean Gay, who broke his back in a ski accident two weeks ago. "There's nothing really wrong with she said. "It's him that I'm worried about." LONG SPELL IN CASTS She said doctors told her would have to wear the casts for six to eight weeks before returning to training. She didn't know when she might return to competition because "I've never bad i broken bone before." Miss Clifford, top Canadian In women's World Cup compe- tition until her mishap, stand] 12th in points. "I felt I was just starting to ski good slalom at the last race in Austria. I was just starting to ski the way I have been wanting to ski all season way I knew I could ski." Miss Clifford said she was confident Toronto's Judy Crawford, ao, could still win a medal at Sapporo. "Betsy had the best said Al Raine, al- pine program director for the Canadian SH Association. "Judy has chances, but it's a little tougher when you're by yourself. "We'll need a little luck."

All agreed, though, that West deserved the honor and it was fitting that he should m.Ve the winning shot. So powerful was the West team's front line that oddsmak- ers had the Oast an 11-point un- derdog at game time.

Cowens, at 6-foot-9, was the East's tallest player. USE SPEED But the East used its speed and great quickness to upset the West's game early. Walt Fra- iler of New York Knicks stole numerous passes, reserve Jo Jo White of Boston Celtics was all over toe place, Bill Cunningham of Philadelphia '76ers hit a number of outside jump shots and by halftime, the East was ahead by 10, 64-54. The West couldn't get the ball inside and was hurt by lack of speed. Then Bill Shaman of the La- kers, coaching the West, wait to a quicker lineup, sending In Jimmy Walker of Detroit, Con- nie Hawkins of Phoenix and Oscar Robertson of Milwaukee with left in the third pe- riod. Minutes late1, in came Wilt Chamberlain of the Lakers and Paul Silas o! Phoenix and that combination lit a fire under the West. Then the 6-foot-2 West came off the bench to assure the triumph, eighth in 22 games for the western representative. West had 13 points to help lead the West. Hawkins also had 13 including six in the crucial third period. Jabbar had 12. Frazier and John Havlicek of Boston wound up with 15 each for the losers.
