NBA Lockout Day 70
YouTube has blessed us with the entire 1981 NBA Finals between the Boston Celtics and Houston Rockets. One very scrappy series when you look back on it. Moses Malone and Larry Bird were definitely the faces of this spectacle. It was a 6-game battle of tactics and adjustments that saw both teams win on the road. Too bad for Houston, the Celtics did it twice.
Game 2 Part 1. Game 2 Part 2. Game 3. Game 4. Game 5. Game 6. Nothing like some solid CBS broadcasting. The Garden and The Summit were definitely rocking for each contest. Del Harris' hair sometimes steals the show. It's cool to see Cedric Maxwell take home Finals MVP. Bird had his scoring problems for sure and Maxwell was there to pick up the slack.
