play they look for one man, and one man only- Kareem Ab-
Two times in the final 34 seconds, with the Lakers nursing
one-point leads, they went to Jabbar, and both times he
responded with baskets to clinch a 130-127 victory over the
Pistons in a wild finish before 21,045 at the Silverdome.
LEADING 126-1-25, Jabbar took a pass from Earvin John-
son and scored on a sky hook over the Pistons' Kent Benson.
But' Detroit came back quickly and cut the lead to one on a
hook shot by John Long. Then, with 10 seconds left, Jabbar
took a pass from Jamaal Wilkes and drove around Benson to
ice the game. Ron Lee's three-point effort with three seconds
left was not close.
Johnson led all scorers with 40 points, including a crucial
tip-in on a Wilkes missed layup with 1:23 left in the game to
put the Lakers up by three, 126-123. Jabbar had 31 points and
a game-high 13 rebounds.

Scotty Robertson. "If he misses any of those, we win the ball
game, but he made them and that's why he's MVP."
"I GOT SOMETHING on my hook shot," said Jabbar. "I
got Kent in a one-on-one situation, and fortunately the shot
The Lakers looked like they would make a short evening of

nine for 10 shooting. But Detroit battled back and took the
lead with six minutes remaining in the half, 53-52, on a jum-
per by Benson. The game was close from then on, as there
were 14 ties and 16 lead changes.
"It was a great game," said Robertson. "It's our best
game of the year."
John Long scored 36 points for the Pistons, and Isiah
Thomas added 28 and led Detroit's fourth quarter drive.
Former Michigan standout Mike McGee made his
