Well we posted the Game 5 ECF highlights from 1981 on Friday and this year's Celtics, like their counterparts from 39 years ago, staved off elimination, so here are the Game 6 highlights. 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.
Game 6 would feature Larry Bird's first ever win at the Spectrum in Philly as well as a fight between Cedrics Maxwell and a fan. Most importantly Boston forced a Game 7.
