SAN FRANCISCO (1) - High-
powered Rick Barry pumped
in 36 points, including two free
throws with 26 seconds left, and
the remarkable Golden State
Warriors rallied for a 92-91 vic-
tory over the Washington Bul-
lets last night.
The aroused Warriors, who
had stunned the favored Bul-
lets by coming from 16 points
back to win Sunday's opening
game, did it again, this time
fighting from a 13-point sec-
ond quarter deficit.
Barry poured in 23 points in
the first half but the Warriors
trailed 52-46 after being behind
46-33 at one time.
They didn't begin their come-
back until early in the third
quarter, when they trailed 63-
52. Then they outscored the be-
fuddled Bullets 17-S and finally
went ahead for the first time in
the game 69-68 with 1:47 to go
in the third quarter.
Golden State built its ad-
vantage to 88-80 late in the
fourth period, but the Bullets
battled back and finally took
the lead 91-90 on a three point
play by Mike Riordan with
1:01 to go.
After both teams missed field
goal attempts, Barry took a
long pass from George Johnson
and was ahead of the field
when he was pushed hard from
behind by Riordan. He then hit
the two winning free throws.
Washington then worked the
ball around, but three shots in
the final seconds all failed.
Phil Chenier paced the Bullets
with 30 points, Riordan finish-
ed with 21 and Elvin Hayes
scored 15.

B U F F A L 0 () - Rene
Robert scored at 18:29 of the
overtime, giving the Buffalo
Sabres a 5-4 triumph over the
Philadelphia Flyers in Game 3
of the National Hockey
League's championship series
The victory cut the Flyers'
lead to 2-1 in the best-of-seven
series for the Stanley Cup with
Game 4 to be played here
Thursday night.
The Sabres, who had come
back from deficits of 2-0, 3-2
and 4-3 finally tied the score
on the first career playoff
goal by rookie defenseman
Bill Bajt.
Hajt lifted in the second re-
bound of a shot by Rick Mar-
tin over Philadelphia goalie

92-91;
in OT
Bernie Parent at 9:56 of the
third period.
That's the way it stayed with
periodical intermissions while
the players tried to dissipate
fog which settled repeatedly
over the Memorial Auditorium
ice.
High temperatures and hu-
midity caused condensation
that hindered vision and re-
feree Lloyd Gilmour often
had to stop play while the
players skated around to light-
en the haze.
Then came Robert's which
ended two Buffalo futility
streaks against the defending
Stanley Cup champions. The
Sabres hadn't beaten Parent
previously in their five-year his-
tory and hadn't beaten the
Flyers in 15 games.
