Marks in sight for two clubs By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Boston Celtics won their 60th game of the National Basketball Association season night and Hie Philadelphia 76ers lost their 67tb. The Celtics can tie the NBA record for victories set by Los Angeles Lakers last season with 69 by winning their remaining games. All tile 76crs have to do to set an NBA record for most losses in one season is to lose one game out of their remain- ing nine. The Celtics beat Baltimore Bullets 111-107 and the 76ers fell to Phoenix Suns 120-114. In the only other NBA game, Los Angeles beat Detroit 122- 121. John Havlicck's four points in the final 15 seconds was the margin of victory for the Celt- ics. Havlicek made a fall away jump shot with two defenders hounding him with 15 seconds remaining to break a 107-iW tie. Jo-Jo White lied Havlicek for scoring honors with 27 including some clutch baskets in the fourth period. Hie Bullets, down most of the fourth period, came charging back to witlun four at 105-101 with remaining as Mike Riordan, who scored 15 of his game high 34 points in the final period, scored on a three point play. The 76ers overcame a 19 point deficit late in the third quarter and tied their game with the Suns at 96 all.

The consolation final, follow ing a full day of action, is sc for with the primary fina set to go at eight o'clock. pnd when they baltle the Sabres in Buffalo and Lhe Leafs visit the North Stars at Minnesota. Both Lemaire and Pappin are enjoying their best seasons in the league. Lemaire, a speedy centre with a sizzling slapshot, also picked up an assist to move into fifth place in the individual scoring race. The 27-year-old native of La- Salle, Que., has surpassed his production of 81 points last year; he now has 45 assists in addition to his 40 goals for 85 points. Pappin, the rangy right- winger from is right behind Mm in sixth place with 37 goals and 46 assists for 83 points. Pippin's previous best year was 1968-69, his first with the Hawks following a trade with Toronto for defenceman Pierre Pilote. The Canadiens struck for three-third-period by disappoint a record Olympia crowd of at De- troit. Lemaire's second goal was fired into an empty net as Ca- nadiens' goalie Ken Dryden earned his third assist of the season. Other Montreal scorers were Henri Hichard, Guy Lap- ointe and Murray Wilson. Henry BoHcha, Mickey Red- mond, with his 44th, and Bill Collins tallied for the Wings who remained one point ahead of the Sabres in fourth. The Hawks were never beliincl as Cliff Koroll, with his 30th, and Lou Angotti completed the Chicago scoring while Ted Ir vine and Rod Gilbert counted for the Rangers. Hawk defenceman Keith Mag- nuson and Rangers' Gene Carr exchanged blows in the fhird period with Magnuson scoring a clean knockdown. Ranger Brar Park then jumped on Magnuson and earned a game miscondue for being the third man in a fighl. Boisterous Eddie SiiacV. urned on his former team by scoring the winner 'ifh remaining for th 'enguins as the Kings' playof hances were jolted. The loss eft them four points behind St Louis. Al McDonough, another for mer King, gave the Penguins a lead and Syl Apps, with hi, 26th of the season, was thi other Pittsburgh triggerman Bob Berry, on a power play ind Butch Goring scored for the Kings.

The Seals, who have onl 11 games and are last in th West, lost 11 players to the ne league this year. The discontented playei were not identified in news paper reports because they s; they feared reprisals. At Toronto, the Leafs conti ucd in their role of spoilers b winning their third game four starts as Hick Keha scored his 30th goal and Dav Keon celebrated his 900th NHL game with his 31st. The two goals came 14 sec- onds apart -near the end of the first period. Rick MacLeish spoiled Gord McRae's shutout bid with his 44th of the season. Jacques Richard scored on a breakaway late in the third pe- riod to allow the Flames to sal- vage the tie with Ihe Blues who went ahead on Pierre Plante's tip-in in the first period. New England Whalers have a four-point bulge atop the East- ern Division of the World Hockey Association thanks lo clutch goals from their blueline corps and another assist from Alberta Oilers. Ted Green broke a 5-5 lie late in the third period before fans in Winnipeg Wednesday night as the Whalers went 01 to defeat the Jets 7-5. And the Oilers enhanced their playoff chances by humbling second-place Cleveland Crusa- ders by the same 4-2 count in as many nights before fans in Edmonton. In the other game. New York Raiders moved into a third- place with Philadelphia Blazers in the Eastern Division with a 5-1 home-ice win over Houston Aoros. On Tuesday night, it was de- fenceman Jim Doroy's overtima goal that gave the Whalers a 1-3 decision over Chicago Cougars. And Wednesday night, Green scored to snuff out a Winnipeg rally as he slapped Slieehy's rebound home after a spectacular save by Winnipeg netminder Joe Daley. Stan Fischler's Inside Hockey HE New York Rangers just may have opened their big mouths too soon again. After emphatically whipping the Bruins way back on February 3rd in Boston everyone from cap- tain Vic Hadfield to the Broadway stiekboy crowed about how the Bruins were dead for 1973. That, of course, was before Tom Johnson was canned as coach and replaced by Eep Guidolin. And before Derek Sanderson returned as a fili- Dustering center. What hurt the Beantowners most of all was a punch de- Perhaps the sweetest turn of NHL justice will arrive on April 1st when the Pittsburgh Penguins are officially declar- ed out of the playoffs. It would be right simply because Red Kelly, one of the few really brainy Itockey men, never should have been dropped from his coaching position in Penguintown. If Red had any fault it was in his head. He's too smart for hockey. After Kelly had watched the Russian Nation- al Team in action, he kjiew what had to be done in Pitts- burgh. "I tried to create the same kind of team in said Kelly. "The Russians are excellent skatevs. They have tremendous precision and when they have six men on the ice they all work. We don't have that kind of dedi- cation in the NHL." The World Hockey Associa- tion has reached such a heal- thy stale, so amazingly fast, it already has had to cool ex- pansion talk among some of its more exuberant members. According to the most reli- able WHA sources, Toronto remains the top choice to re- ceive the next WHA team; perhaps next season if Ot- tawa's Nationals move. Serious bids also have been delivered to WHA offices from San Diego, Vancouver and, believa it or not, Miami; except this time the interested Miami party is NOT Herb Martin who organized and then killed the Screanlng Eagles. livered by Rangers' Steve Vickers to the Jaw of Boston's Don Marcotte. The Bruin fell to the ice as if hit by a giant sequoia tree and after that Bobby Orr's crew never was the same. The Rangers like to think that Vickers will be their new strongman against such buck- ies as Ken Hodge and Wayne Cashman; and well he might. But it will require some heavy Vickers clouting on March 24th and March when the clubs meet in Boston and York, respectively, for the Hangers to vanquish the vengeful Bruins. Anyone with a keen eye for contemporary hockey can tell that the modem "big- leaguer" simply does not enter NHL with anywhere near a solid grounding in fundamentals. To watch some of the clowns on the New York Islanders and Cal- ifornia Golden Seals, it's al- most tragic to the eye. "I tried to teach my young- er players what they should have been taught years said Kelly. "We spend too much time brainwashing kids to stay in one spot, so they only learn to shoot from side. They don't have a back- hand shot. And they cannot circle equally well to the left and right." Unfortunately, Kelly's les- sons will be mistakenly toss- ed aside, just as Red was by the know-nothing owners in Pittsburgh. WHA leaders finally decid- ed that it would be imprud- ent to expand next season, which they correctly believe should be a year of consoli- dation.'In the meantime, sev- eral clubs are making ener- getic moves toward greater strength. The Chicago Cougars, back- ed by the Kg money of Jor- dan Kaiser, are making serious overtures to Stan Mikita and Pat Stapleton of the Black Hawks while also drawing blueprints for a riew arena. Bill Hunter's Alberta Oilers also are looking longingly to their new building, soon to rise in Edmonton. ANYWHERE!
