Quantcast

Ok trying this out for luck, so hopefully you'll get at least three of these. The Boston Celtics famously came back from down 3 games to 1 to defeat their rivals the Philadelphia 76ers in the 1981 Eastern Conference Finals. Boston would go on to win their 14th championship in 1981, the first of Larry Bird's NBA career.

The 1981 Celtics were led by some young stars and a recent addition of a veteran point guard in Tiny Archibald. Their star Larry Bird shot a very poor 1 for 8 in the first half of Game 4, which seemed like a must win at the time.

Any of this sound familiar? While no one is calling any current Celtic Larry Bird, it should be noted the current team is not too young. Also let's point out that the 2020 Heat don't exactly have Dr. J on them.

Larry Bird played a much more complete Game 5 and finished with 32 points, 11 rebounds, and 5 assists in Game 5. Consider that your benchmark for tonight Jayson Tatum.
