Late surge gives Boston win over depleted 76ers
Green Improves to 24-8
1981-82 Boston Celtics
This may have been one for the standings, but it certainly was not one for the heart. Defeating Philadelphia without Andrew Toney (sprained ankle) and with Darryl Dawkins playing 11 painful minutes (tendinitis of the left knee) is about as satisfying as beating Farrah Fawcett in an acting contest.
Nevertheless, the Celtics are now just a half-game out of first place.
