PRO BASKETBALL—NBA: "It just doesn't happen," said Walt Frazier of New York. "If you have 10 men on the court you can't hold the Bucks scoreless for that long a time." But the Knicks, using only five men and trailing by 18 points with 5:50 remaining, scored the last 19 points for an 87-86 triumph over Milwaukee. Earl Monroe started the rally and also netted the winning basket. New York remained 33 percentage points behind Boston in the Atlantic Division race. Milwaukee, the Midwest Division leader, had trailed Boston by 15 points at halftime the night before, but came back for a 95-88 victory as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar scored 32 points. Nate Archibald of Kansas City-Omaha continued to lead the league in both scoring and assists as he tallied 51 points, the highest single-game total this year, as the Kings defeated Houston 127-117. In a 115-96 win over Cleveland the night before, Archibald shot 16 for 23 in scoring 40 points and getting 11 assists. Pete Maravich had a season-high 45 points for Atlanta in a 126-122 win over Phoenix as the Central Division developed into a close race between the Hawks and Baltimore. In the Pacific Division, Los Angeles and Golden State were the leaders. The Lakers won their ninth straight by defeating Buffalo 103-100 while Portland upset the Warriors 105-97.
