KANSAS CITY - Nate Archi-

points by scoring 30 and assist-
ing on 13 baskets last night,
bringing the Kings back from a
13-point third-quarter deficit to
a 127-113 victory over division
rival Detroit Pistons.
The Kings, who moved to
within two games of the second-
place Pistons in the Midwest
Division, started their comeback
at 8:54 of the third quarter with
an Archibald jamp shot.
Five and a half minutes later
Scott Wedrnan hit a baseline
jumped off an Archibald feed
and Kansas City led for the first
time, 85-84.
Detroit capitalized on 67
per cent field goal shooting in
the first half to take a 67-57
lead at intermission.
The Pistons were led by cen-
ter Bob Lanier's 20 first-h a If
points from eight of nine shots
from the field. He finished with
a game-high 34 points, missing
only four of 18 attempts.
Archibald put the game away
for the Kings with four minutes
to play when he hit a spectacu-
lar underhand bankshot from
18 feet and he drew. a foul.
The three-point play gave
Kansas City a 113-102 lead,
sending the Kings on their way
to only their second triumph
in seven outings against Detroit
this season.
Jimmy Walker and Wedman
wound up with 20 points each

Braves scalped
BUFFALO - Phil Smith
scored 23 points in the second
half last night, lifting the Gold-
en State Warriors to a 100-93 vic-
tory over the Buffalo Braves.
Smith hit five baskets in a
row midway in the fourth quar-
ter to move the Warriors from
a 79-77 deficit to an 87-81 lead
with 4:09 to play.
The Braves at that time were
struggling through one of their
worst offensive fourth quarters
of the season.
Buffalo made only 8 of 23
shots in the final quarter, four
of them in the final two min-
Keith Wilkes had 26 points for
Golden State, 24 in the first
three quarters. The Warriors
got only six points from Rick
Barry, who made only three of
nine shots.
Bob McAdoo's 28 points led
Buffalo, while Randy Smith had
18, but only four in the second
half. He was victimized by Phil
Smith's offensive display.
It was the third straight de-
feat for the Braves and their
fourth in a row at home.
