Rockets out; Spurs facing elimination
SAN ANTONIO (AP) — It’s down to one game for the San Antonio Spurs.
And coach Bob Hill hopes the must-win pressure of tonight’s Game S against the Utah Jazz fires up his dejected team.
“Maybe we need a do-or-die situation to get us back to playing the way we’re supposed to play, where we get out and nm and share it and play with some enthusiasm dot’s bom from the way we play,” Hill said.
Utah defeated San Antonio 101-86 Sunday in Salt Lake City to take a 3-1 lead in their best-of-7 Western Conference semifinal series.
With a victory tonight, the Jazz would advance
to the conference finals to face Seattle. Utah’s last trip to the conference finals was in 1994, when the Jazz lost to Houston.
If the Spurs win they still must win twice more to capture the series. The sixth game would be in Utah and the seventh in San Antonio.
In Houston, it took Rudy Tomjanovich awhile to realize the Houston Rockets were no longer NBA champions.
“I woke up this morning and the first thing I thought was if this was a shoot-around day or full practice,’’Tomjanovich said Monday. ‘Then, I turned on the answering machine and there as a message from my daughter to my wife.
“She said, ‘I guess we’ll have the big restless guy around more this summer.’”
Tomjanovich and the Rockets began their vacations Sunday after they were swept 4-0 by the Seattle Supersonics, ending their two-year nm as NBA champions.
The Rockets did a good job rallying from an injuiy-filled season to reach the playoffs as the Na S seed, but it wasn’t good enough in the Western Conference semifinals.
Seattle moves on to the Western Conference finals with admiration for the battling Rockets.
“I was wondering, ‘Why don’t you guys just die?” Sonics guard Gary Payton said.

Rangers edge KC; Astros fall
By the Associated Press
CHICAGO—Give an; for the performance of Steve Trachsel
Trachsel pitched a one-hitter against the Houston Astros on Monday night, md got offensive help from Sammy Sosa, who hit bb third home nm in as many games in the Chicago Cubs’ 6-0 victory.
Trachsel (3-2) credits Rick Kranitz, pitching assistant, with his turnaround. “He knows me since I’ve been in the minor leagues,” Trachsel said.
“Last year if I threw a fastball on the outside of the plate, it tailed back over toward the middle. This year it’s not doing th*, b’s helping my curveball. It’s helping my changeup. b’s a new pitch for me and it’s helping my spht (finger) as well.”
On Monday all of Trachsel’s pitches were working.
“I had good velocity,” he said. T was real comfortable, real smooth. Everything was hitting the spot at where I was trying to throw at When I’m able to do that, it makes it real tough for the hitter to stay balanced.”
At The BaUpark in Arlington, Texas manager Johnny Oases was running afever “md foehns absolutely terrible." '
He felt much better after watching his Texas Rangers get a walk, two singles and Rusty Greer’s two-out, two-run double in the eighth inning Monday night, producing a 7-6 victory over the Kansas City Royals.
Oates could hardly believe iL
“It’s nice to be able to fed a little better as a result of the game,” the Rangers’ manager said.
“We snatched that one. We got behind md we were flat. It was one of those games where you ask yourself, ‘Did we really win it?* because it didn't seem like we were with it today,” Oates said.
“But Rusty Greer came through, md we did what we needed to do to get enough runs. We snatched one today.”
