Robert Reid walks into the hotel coffee shop and one waitress does a semi-swoon. Another calls him darling and brings his order with the kind of speed and enthusiasm that win employee-of-the-month awards. Girls like Robert Reid. A few years ago, Robert Reid spent a lot of time liking them back. "I rode that wave," Reid says, chuckling. "I rode that bad, boy. Rode it five miles out, and took my time coming back." But girls are only part of the story.

Larry Bird concedes that Robert Reid did a good job of defending him in Game 3, but he said it won't concern him tonight when Boston tries to rebound in Game 4 at Houston. "I don't really care who guards me," Bird said. "If I get the same shots, I'll be pleased. "I'm not worried about Robert Reid.

One of the state Assembly's Democratic leaders has blasted the staff of the California Arts Council for spending money on itself that it could be spending on the arts. "The council's administration is bloated at the gills," Speaker Pro-Tem Mike Roos (D-Los Angeles) charged at an Assembly subcommittee hearing here Wednesday. "And its mission has become how can we make life easier for the bureaucrats, instead of how can we fund" artistic achievement.

Ebullience, thy name art Robert Reid, the improbable point guard of the improbable Rockets, who looked at the disarray of the world champion Lakers late Sunday afternoon and found it good. Reid became the latest winner of the Rockets' MHA (Most Helpful to Akeem) award, coming all the way back from his opening-game 2-for-7 shooting to score 23 points, second on the team to Akeem Olajuwon's 35, as the Rockets won, 105-95, to take a 3-1 hold in the Western Conference finals.

Maurice Cheeks scored his team's first 11 points, but it was Andrew Toney and Julius Erving who led the late rally Sunday at Landover, Md. that carried the Philadelphia 76ers to a 115-104 victory over the Washington Bullets. It was the 11th win in a row for the 76ers, and gave them a 16-3 road record, best in the NBA. Despite the fast start of Cheeks, who finished with a season-high 25 points to lead the 76ers, the Bullets outplayed them for most of three quarters.
