Synopsis by Steve Blackburn
Although the Boston Celtics wound up winning the 1981 NBA championship, defeating the Houston Rockets four games to two, highlights from the seven-game playoff series between Boston and the Philadelphia 76ers are the exciting main event of this video. Narrated by Brent Musburger, the program features footage of Finals MVP Cedric Maxwell helping the Celtics recover after being down in the series three games to one. His teammate, young Larry Bird, helps save Game 7 and the championship by sinking a clutch bank shot that puts Boston ahead 91-90 at a crucial juncture late in the contest.
