PRO BASKETBALL—NBA: Buffalo found the winning formula, and Bob McAdoo is the prime ingredient. McAdoo had 33 points and 22 rebounds in a 134-118 victory over New Orleans, and he scored 41 against Chicago as the lead changed 27 times before the Braves won out 105-104. Washington stayed undefeated, edging Kansas City-Omaha and Houston before victimizing Milwaukee two nights in a row. Milwaukee managed one win, a 92-90 squeaker over Chicago, but continued to occupy the Midwest cellar. Kansas City-Omaha led that division, the Royals defeating Los Angeles once and Chicago twice. Seattle recovered to post three wins, and Cleveland did the same thing, Atlanta rookie John Drew had 41 points as the Hawks crushed Philadelphia 125-92. Portland nipped Golden State 107-106, then lost to the Warriors 99-97. Philadelphia ruined the Jazz debut in New Orleans 102-89 before falling to Houston 110-86. New York dropped injury-riddled Boston 97-86 and Phoenix stopped Detroit 100-90.
