Mavericks beat Sixers for first time
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Together, Dick Motto and the Dallas Mavericks are reaching milestones
Motto coached his 650th victory as the Mavericks defeated the Philadelphia 76ers 119-116 in double overtime Wednesday night for their first victory over the defending National Basketball Association champions in the franchise’s three-year history.
“The atmosphere was almost playoff type. It was a sellout and we
were playing the world champions. The win couldn’t have come against a better club. This win should help the franchise,” Motta said. “I’m tickled to death with the result.”
In other games Wednesday night, it was San Antonio 114, New Jersey 108; Milwaukee 107, Indiana 91; Cleveland 104, Phoenix 90; and Seattle 116, Washington 99.
Meanwhile, the Chicago Bulls traded Reggie Theus to the Kansas City Kings Wednesday for center Steve Johnson and three second-round draft choices. Theus, a two-time All-
Star guard in his sixth year, has spent most of this season on the bench after Chicago Coach Kevin Loughery complained of his lack of defensive play.
The Mavericks blew a 14-point lead in the fourth quarter and played in overtime without their star, Mark Aguirre, who fouled out in the first overtime after scoring 33 points.
But Brad Davis, Rolando Blackman and Pat Cummings sank crucial free throws in the final minute of the second overtime to give Dallas its first victory over Philadelphia in

Georgetown Coach John Thompson stuck with Ewing, even though the 7-foot center had two early fouls and got a third with time running out in the first half.
“My assistants wanted me to take Ewing out when he got his third, but I wanted to go with him,” Thompson said. “I thought about it, but decided to stay with him. I like him much better on the floor than by my side.”
Freshman Dallas Comegys came off the bench to
score a career-high 32 points, powering DePaul past Loyola. Tyrone Corbin added 18 points, Kenny Patterson had 15 and Kevin Holmes netted 12 as the Blue Demons raised their record to 19-1.

Fans, rivals bid farewell to wrestler Von Erich
DENTON (AP) — Many of the luminaries of the professional wrestling world paid their final respects to David Von Erich, 25, a ring comrade who died of a stomach ailment last week while on a wrestling tour of Japan.
“This is the largest funeral we’ve ever had here,” an official of the First Baptist Church of Denton said of the estimated 3,500 who came Wednesday. Many of them waited as long as three hours for the IO a.m. funeral.
The mourners were predominantly young women — whose screams for the wrestler at his matches had been likened to the devotion other girls once bestowed upon the Beatles during the 1960s.
Ric Flair, an archrival of the wrestling Von Erich family, was subdued at the services, despite the fact that he had frequently shouted insults at David and other of the Von Erichs before, during and after wrestling battles in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
“The fact that we were enemies in the ring didn’t have anything to do with the tremendous amount of respect I had for him. He had unlimited guts,” said Flair, whose forehead is crisscrossed with scars.
Von Erich’s real name was David Adkisson. He was a high school football and basketball star at nearby I .ake Dallas before joining brothers Kevin, Kerry and Michael in prolonging the family wrestling name begun two decades earlier by their father, who wrestled under the name of Fritz Von Erich.
On either side of the closed casket were portraits of Von Erich — one of him in wrestling gear with his Texas heavyweight championship belt draped over his shoulder, the other of him in a tan leather jacket and white cowboy hat.
One floral arrangement was in the shape of Texas. Another was in the shape of cowboy boots with a cross on top.
Among other professional wrestlers who attended the funeral were Gem Kiniski, Dory and Terry Funk, Verne Gagne, Duke Keomucka, Brian Adias, Iceman King Parsons, Chris "The Gentleman” Adams, the Super Ds and Jose Lothario.
Absent were television camera crews. Plans to film the services for later telecast were dropped when Von Erich’s father banned cameras from the
church. He had considered having a closed funeral, but changed his mind.
About 1,500 fans descended upon Grove Hill Memorial Park in East Dallas for a graveside service that followed the funeral. Many of them arrived as early as 8 a.m. Despite exhortations from police, the crowd refused to disperse after the service. They milled around the casket as it was lowered into the ground.
As the hundreds of flower arrangements were laid at graveside, dozens of mourners rushed to pluck a memory of the dead wrestler. In less than a minute, most of the flowers were gone.
"Fritz said the crowd is what made them, and he wanted the crowd to be a part of this. It’s a lot harder on the family this way, but the crowd loved the boys,” said Sondra Adkisson, David Von Erich's cousin.
The Rev. Gene McCombs, a family friend from Memphis, Term., officiated at the funeral.
“Let’s consider his life well spent. He left a fruitful life behind him. He was a young giant. He did more living in 25 years than most people do in 70 years,” McCombs said.
