PRO BASKETBALL—BOSTON defeated Los Angeles 111-102 in the seventh game of their best-of-seven playoff series to win the NBA championship (page 42).
BOXING—ROCKY LOCKRIDGE successfully defended his WBA junior lightweight title with an 11th-round TKO of Tae-Jin Moon in Anchorage, Alaska.
Tommy Hearns knocked out Roberto Duran at 1:07 of the second round to retain his WBC junior middleweight title in Las Vegas (page 36).
PRO FOOTBALL—USFL: Pity poor Pittsburgh. The Maulers this season have had two different coaches. They've experimented with seven different wide receivers and nine different starting defensive backs. Mike Rozier, their Heisman Trophy-winning rusher who has been held to just 719 yards rushing and a 3.5 average gain, may undergo surgery at the conclusion of the season to remove calcium deposits from his left ankle. The only good news last week for the 3-14 Maulers was that the torture was almost over. Pittsburgh lost twice in the penultimate week of the regular season, 21-3 to San Antonio on Monday and then 21-9 against Tampa Bay five nights later. The Maulers have dropped 10 of their last 11 outings and ended their inaugural year with a 2-7 record at home. The Arizona Wranglers ran off to a 19-0 lead in the first quarter, then cruised to a 36-0 win over the Chicago Blitz. New Jersey handed Denver its third defeat in a row, 27-7, as fullback Maurice Carthon gained 88 yards on 14 carries to join teammate Herschel Walker in the 1,000-yard club. New Orleans running back Buford Jordan looked like a winner against Jacksonville—he scored two TDs, gained 198 yards rushing and caught four passes for 49 yards—but his team lost. After erasing a 14-point fourth-quarter deficit, the Bulls prevailed 20-17 on Brian Franco's 30-yard field goal five minutes into OT. In other games, the Atlantic Division leader, Philadelphia, blasted Washington 31-8 (page 62); Southern Division titlist Birmingham triumphed 35-20 over the Showboats; Los Angeles, the Pacific Division pacesetter, clinched a playoff spot with a 24-19 win over Oakland; and Houston, leader in the Central Division, was idle.
GOLF—FUZZY ZOELLER defeated Greg Norman by eight strokes in the 18-hole playoff to win the U.S. Open in Mamaroneck, N.Y. Both men completed regulation with four-under-par 276s (page 30).
Ayako Okamoto shot a closing-round 70 to win a $250,000 LPGA event in Indianapolis. She finished seven under par at 281, two strokes ahead of Judy Clark and Donna H. White.
