Knicks hold on
New York pulls out of overtime to beat Boston 113-105
By WILLIAM R. BARNARD AP Sports Writer
In Larry Bird’s mind, there was no way Boston could lose to the New York Knicks, even when the Celtics were behind by 12 points with less than six minutes to go.
He was nearly right. But the Knicks survived an 18-6 outburst by Boston that forced the game into overtime and beat the Celtics 113-105 in National Basketball Association action Thursday-night. It was only the eighth victory in 24 games for the Knicks, while the Celtics are 19-5.
“There wasn’t one time in the game I thought we weren’t going to win it,” said Bird, whose confidence is built on many Boston comebacks in the past, including a victory over Detroit Wednesday night after the Celtics trailed by 20 points.
'We expected to win against the Knicks with their record,” said Bird, who had 23 points and 14 rebounds for the Celtics. “We. should have won this game. But there was a letdown after we caught them."
Bernard King scored 27 points for New York, including five in
overtime, but it was the Knicks defense that proved to be the difference, holding the Celtics to 40.8 percent shooting.
And although the Celtics passed the IOO mark in overtime, it was only the second time this season they have been held under IOO points in 48 minutes. And both times it was the Knicks who did it.
In other games, Atlanta beat Cleveland 106-97, San Antonio belted Denver 120-108, Golden State tripped Phoenix 98-94, Portland defeated San Diego 111* 103 and Seattle stopped Dallas 103-93.
Sly Williams, making his first start of the season, scored 19 points for New York while Marvin Webster also had 19 for the Knicks. Center Rick Robey, starting in place of injured regular Robert Parish, had 18 points and 15 rebounds for Boston.
Blazers 111, Clippers 103
Jim Paxson scored 21 points for Portland to pace the victory over San Diego, which had only eight players because of injuries. Darnell Valentine added 20
points for the Trail Blazers, who never trailed in the game after scoring ll of the first 13 points.
Randy Smith led the Clippers with 23 points and nine assists.
Warriors 98, Suns 94
Joe Barry Carroll scored 26 points and Purvis Short added 24 as Golden State rallied from a 17-point halftime deficit against Phoenix.
The Warriors still trailed 75-69 after three periods, but they finally took their first lead of the game at 84-83 on a layup by Lorenzo Romar. The Suns, who got 21 points from Walter Davis, never regained the advantage.
Hawks 106, Cavs 97
Mike Glenn scored all 14 points in the fourth quarter to boost Atlanta past Cleveland, which lost its fifth straight game.
Glenn’s first points of the game gave Atlanta a 77-76 lead and another basket ignited a run of IO Hawks points in a row that gave them an 89-80 edge.
Rory Sparrow led Atlanta with 24 points, while Cliff Robinson topped all scorers with 25 for the Cavaliers.

Minnesota downs Dayton

It was a big night for a couple of big guys from the Big Ten.
Randy Breuer, Minnesota’s 7-foot-3 center, had 22 points and eight rebounds in leading the Gophers past Dayton 77-65 Thursday night. Ohio State's Tony Campbell, a 6-7 forward, put in 20 points to pace the Buckeyes over Youngstown State 81-53.
The only ranked team in action was No. I Virginia, which played in Tokyo Thursday morning without its big man, 7-4 center Ralph Sampson, who was sidelined with the flu. Still, the Cavaliers downed No. 14 Houston 72-63 as Sampson’s replacement. Jim Miller, scored 14 points.
Virginia was idle today before taking on Utah on Saturday, also in Tokyo.
The Gophers handed Dayton its first defeat of the season after four victories, overcoming a five-point halftime deficit.
“A big part of the turnaround was that we got into it quickly in the second half,” said Minnesota Coach Jim Lutcher Dayton hurt us in the first half with their rebounding, not their outside shots
Dayton outrebounded Minnesota 26-15 in the half. But Minnesota dominated the boards in the second half and shot 51.5 percent, led by Breuer.
“Randy’s presence occupied a minimum of two guys defensively. He’s not a great shotblocker but he poses a big threat." Lutcher said.
"They made us look bad in the second half at both ends of the court. In the second half we got tired and went solo too much,” said Dayton Coach Don Donoher.
Ohio State gave Youngstown State Coach Mike Rice “a headache.” The Buckeyes also gave the Penguins a beating, led by Campbell and Joe Con-check, who had 14
“We expect good play out of Tony every time he steps on the court," said Buckeyes Coach Eldon Miller.
Miller credited his team’s defense for the victory
“Defense should tell the tale," he noted. “It didn’t in the first half but it did in the second We did a good job defensively in the first IO minutes of the second half and that made the difference.”

Miami Dolphins quarterback David Woodley may be grateful for one thing. Stock in the New York Jets “Sack Exchange” has taken a slight dip.
The Jets, w ho led the National Football league with 66 quarterback sacks last season, had only 14 going into Saturday's game in the Orange Bow I at Miami.
“We may not be getting as many sacks as we usually get," Jets safety Ken Schroy says, "but we sure are getting the pressures. That’s just as good as a sack as far as we’re concerned."
The Jets, 5-1, take the third-ranked defense in the NFL into the game against Miami’s ninth-ranked offense in the American Conference. The Jets, led by-quarterback Richard Todd and running back Freeman McNeil, also have the No. 2
offense in the AFC. McNeil is the top rusher in the NFL with 532 yards on IOO carries.
The Dolphins, 4-2, meanwhile, counter with lwoodley and the league's No. 2 rusher, fullback Andra Franklin, who has 518 yards on 120 yards.
“This is a game we have to have,” Miami Coach Don Shula said of the contest between two AFC contenders. “Especially, since we’re going against a team we’re in direct competition with. It would be very meaningful to beat a good team like the Jets."
In Saturday ’s only other game, the Los Angeles Rams, 1-5, travel crosstown to their old home park, the Coliseum, to plav the Los Angeles Raiders, 5-1.
The Dolphins have the advantage of being healthy, while the Jets still arc recovering from several injuries. Wide
receiver I^am Jones may not be able to start with a sore ankle, and he would be replaced by Bobby Jones.
In addition, Jets defensive end Joe Klecko remains on the sidelines, from where he has watched since he injured his left knee on the second weekend of the season. Klecko’s absence has been one of the reasons for the Jets’ inability to get to the quarterback this season. He led the team with 20lu sacks last season.
Sunday’s schedule has Buffalo at Tampa Bay, Houston at Philadelphia, Minnesota at Detroit, the New York Giants at Washington, Pittsburgh at Cleveland. St. Louis at Chicago. Green Bay at Baltimore, Kansas City at Denver, New Orleans at Dallas, New England at Seattle and Atlanta at San Francisco.
On Monday night. Cincinnati is at San Diego.
