By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Boston Celtics won three quarters and they won the game, but Buffalo Braves won the final period in record fash- ion. The Celtics. 5-0 in the young National Basketball Association season, nearly ran the Braves off the court for three quarters, running up a lead of 43 points. The Braves came back, how- ever, in the fourth period to tore 58 points and established a league record for points in a single period. At the buzzer the Celtics were still on top 126-118 and all the Braves' shotgun scoring had accomplished was lo make the final score respectable. Dave Cowens led the Celtics with 24 points and 15 rebounds while forward Paul Silas had 16 points and 17 rebounds. Randy Smith paced the Buf- falo attack with 27 points, 21 of those coming in the last period.

The Athletics' 21-game win- ner had a 4-2 lead going into the fifth inning, but had to leave after Tolan knocked in the Reds' third run with a single. Rollie Fingers, who has pitched in every series game thus far, shut off the Reds' threat then, but later gave up the tying run on another base hit by Tolan in the eighth and the winning run on Rose's single in (he ninth. Rose had delivered only on a hit in 16 at bats before going 3- for-n Friday. He also had a single in the third inning. "I was so happy about to- said the fiery Rose, who also made some spectacular plays in left field. The Reds appeared on the brink of elimination after Gene Tenace's three-run fourth of the the sec- ond innnig gave the Athletics a 3-1 lead.
