BASKETBALL—BOSTON and CINCINNATI each had three victories and one defeat and remained first and second in the East, separated by eight games. Third-place PHILADELPHIA, however, had a week to remember. The 76ers split their first two games with the Pistons and then Wilt Chamberlain finally came to town. With Wilt in the lineup, Philadelphia beat the Warriors 111-102, the Pistons again 109-103, and the Celtics 104-100 to stop Boston's winning streak at 16, just one game short of the NBA record. In his first three games with the 76ers Chamberlain scored only 59 points but had 87 rebounds and passed off more often than he shot. NEW YORK lost twice to LOS ANGELES, which increased its lead in the West to 2� games with a 2-1 week. BALTIMORE, with three victories over the Hawks and a loss to the Celtics, climbed into a tie for second with ST. LOUIS, which dropped all four of its games. DETROIT lost three out of five and SAN FRANCISCO three out of three to extend its winless streak to 16, a new NBA mark.
