PRO BASKETBALL—Physician, heal thyself. Despite a daylong bout with the flu, Philadelphia's Doc Erving scored 39 points in 37 minutes to lead the 76ers past the Nets 114-109. Moses Malone, returning from a nine-game layoff" caused by a sprained ankle, added 15 points and 13 rebounds. Philly then broke a tie for second in the Atlantic Division with New York by beating the Knicks 101-97. Boston, the Atlantic leader, won three straight on the West Coast, including a 111-100 defeat of Seattle, which hadn't lost in its preceding 11 home games. Milwaukee retook the Central Division lead by pounding Utah, the Midwest Division pacesetter, 105-91. The Jazz also suffered its worst defeat of the season, a 121-99 loss to Kansas City. Denver got 35 points from Alex English and 31 from Dan Issel in outgunning Los Angeles 141-138, but the Pacific Division-leading Lakers recovered to edge San Diego 120-116. In a rematch of the Nov. 1 fisticuffs between Cleveland's Lonnie Shelton and New Jersey's Buck Williams, Judge (Commissioner) David Stern scored it a two-game suspension for Shelton, a one-gamer for Williams and fines of $2,500 apiece. The Cavs won the game 103-93, their seventh victory in eight games.
