Celtics Suffer Second Loss at Home
C's Fall to 23-8
1981-82 Boston Celtics
The strangest thing was not that the Celtics lost last night to a team they had beaten 14 times in the last 15 attempts. It was the way the upset transpired. The NBA champions were blown away when it counted. The Celtics were outscored, 32-16, over the game's final eight minutes en route to a 116-102 lesson in humility.
Neither frantic substitutions nor a frenzed home crowd near the end made any difference. The Bulls scored 11 of their final 13 times down court that included two nearly insulting stuffs by ordinarily anonymous Dwight Jones.
