Green Improves to 7-2
1990-91 Boston Celtics
Remembering the 29-5 Start
First they let them hang around. Then they hung them out to dry.
The Celtics spent 3 1/2 quarters refusing to rid themselves of the clinging Washington Bullets last night at the Cap Centre before blowing what was once a 15-point lead and falling behind by 5 with 8:07 to play. A night at the opera had suddenly turned grim and a professional decision had to be made.
"I think they realized at that timeout that they'd worked so hard and were now down 5," Celtics coach Chris Ford said.
