Mitchell poured in 30 points, including the Spurs’ first 17 points in the opening quarter. “Small forwards are the greatest athletes in the world and you can’t try to stop them all the time or you'll end up in the hospital with a heart attack,” said McDaniel Mitchell would have scored all the Spurs’ first quarter points if George Johnson had not been called for goal tending as the buzzer sounded to end the period The goal was credited to Alvin Robertson Despite Mitchell’s performance, the Spurs trailed 23-19 Seattle took command of the game with an 11 1 scoring hurst in the se cond quarter and led 56-45 at the half Jack Sikma scored ll of his 12 points in the quarter including five in the final two minutes.

Donaldson continued his impressive play by coming off the bench to score 20 points and grab 12 rebounds, helping Dallas over Golden State. “James has played very well for us,” said Motta of the 7 foot-2-inch, 280 pound Donaldson. “I don’t think he has been in a situation like this where his peers appreciate him so much He takes high percentage shots, and he’s doing a great job on the boards.” Pacers 98, Cavs 84 Indiana, 4-14 for the season, hadn’t won a game on the road since last Feb. 15, when it beat Chicago 114-96.

Kings 131, Bulls 118 Rookie center Joe Kleine had 13 points and 18 rebounds and Eddie Johnson scored 29 points to help Sacramento beat Chicago and post its easiest victory of the season UT track coaches picked for Olympics HOUSTON (AP I For the first time in U S Olympic track and field history, the head coaches of the men s and women’s teams will come from the same school That was virtually assured Tuesday night when Stan Huntsman and Terry Crawford, the men s and women’s coaches at the University of Texas, were chosen by the International Competition Committee of The Athletics Con gress. the national governing body for track and field, to head the teams for the 1988 Seoul (tames The selections need the approval of TAC’s General Assembly on Sunday, the final day of the group s six day convention, and of the U S Olympic Committee Those are considered mere formalities, however The International Competition Committee also selected the complete staffs for the 1988 Olympics, the 1987 World Track and Field Championships at Rome and the 1987 Pan American Games at Indianapolis. Mel Rosen of Auburn w as named head coach for the men’s World Championship team and Barbara Jacket of Prairie View A&M was chosen women’s coach Tom Tellez of the University of Houston was selected as men’s head coach for the Pan Am Games, while Dr Ken Foreman of Seattle will coach the women’s team Ironically, both Huntsman and Crawford left the head coaching positions at the University of Tennessee to coach at Texas Crawford. 37. made the switch in 1984 and Huntsman. 53, followed this year Both agreed it would be difficult to match the success of men’s coach Larry Ellis and women’s coach Brooks Johnson at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics “It s going to be a real tough situation,” Huntsman said “I’m not trying to detract from the great job that Larry Ellis did it probably was the best Olympics we’ve ever had — but this will be the first time since 1972 that we will be competing outside the Western Hemisphere.” The 1972 Games were held at Munich, West Germany, the 1976 Olympics at Montreal and the U.S. boycotted the 1980 Moscow Games. “We ll have a hard act to follow,” Crawford said “If there s any anxiety on my part, it will be to do as well as the ’84 team and staff did.” Crawford added that if the East Europeans, who boycotted last year’s Olympics, participate at Seoul, the “competition will be more intense than the 1984 Games.” “But there’s no reason to think that the U S can’t do as well,” she added. “The kinds of times U.S. women athletes have produced in the last few years leads me to believe there will be no intimidation by the East Europeans and that hasn’t always been the ease ” Huntsman, who coached 14 years at Ohio University and 15 years at Tennessee before taking over the Texas job July I, said he was “looking forward to working with Terry. We’ve been long-time friends.” “I’ve stolen some of her ideas and I think she’s stolen some of mine ” “I have a tremendous amount of respect for Stan,” Crawford said. “We work well together." The two first met in 1969, when Huntsman was the head coach of the U.S. team in the World University Games and Crawford was an 800 meter runner on the women’s team. Since then, Huntsman has been an assistant coach for the 1976 U S Olympic team, head coach of the 1977 World Cup team, assistant coach of the 1979 team for the Spartakiade Games, and head coach of the 1983 World Championship team McEnroe ousted in upset MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — John McEnroe’s stormy stay at the $1.5 million Australian Open has come to a shocking stop. “You are going to pay for this. I mean it,” McEnroe shouted across the net moments before unseeded Slobodan Zivojinovic of Yugoslavia finished off a stunning upset 2-6, 6-3, 1-6, 6-4, 6-0 in a quarterfinal match Wednesday. Someday, maybe McEnroe will make good on his promise. But this time, it was Zivojinovic’s turn for glory as he blasted his way past McEnroe. The power-playing Zivojinovic, ranked 66th in the world, served strongly in the final two sets while also easily handling McEnroe’s serves. “He disappointed me, but he is a good guy and a good player,” said Zivojinovic, who earned only $17,601 playing tennis last year He will make $24,903 just for making the semifinals here. Zivojinovic will next play Mats Wilander of Sweden, a familiar opponent. Zivojinovic beat Wilander, who has won the last two Australian Opens, in the first round at Wimbledon earlier this year. Wilander got to the semifinals by beating two-time Australian Open champion Johan Kriek of the United States 6-3, 7-5,6-2 in the second quarterfinal on Wednesday. Earlier in the day, top-seeded Ivan Lendl of Czechoslovakia moved into the quarterfinals with a 6-3, 6-2, 6-7, 6-2 triumph over unseeded South African Christo Steyn McEnroe’s 10-day stay in Melbourne began with cont rover sy and ended the same way He scuffled with a reporter and photographer soon after arriving here last week and accumulated $2,750 in fines after on-court incidents in earlier matches He was booed and jeered from the court as he stormed away in his moment of defeat.
