Aiken Standard (Newspaper) - May 6, 1993, Aiken, South Carolina Celtics’ McHale Retires By The Associated Press After spending 13 years in the company of Larry Bird, Dennis Johnson. Robert Parish and rest of the Boston Celtics, a worn and weary Kevin McHale finally called it quits, McHale, who helped the Celtics add three championship banners to the Boston Garden rafters in the 1980s. announced his retirement Wednesday night after the Celtics were eliminated from the NBA playoffs by the Charlotte Hornets. “All good things must come to an end.” a teary eyed McHale said af ter his career and the Celtics’ season ended “I really wanted to play one more game at the Boston Garden But it wasn’t meant to be. The tank’s empty.” NBA Roundup Charlotte won the best-of-5 series three games to one and became the first of the most recent expansion teams to win a playoff series. In other games, Cleveland took a 2-1 lead on New Jersey with a 93-84 win; San Antonio went ahead of Portland 2-1 with a 107-101 victor; and the Los Angeles Clippers tied their series with Houston at two games each with a 93-90 win. McHale, 35, retired on the same date as two other Celtics superstars, Bill Russell and Sam Jones. Perhaps the greatest Celtic of them all. Bird, announced his retirement prior to this season. “People always ask me what it felt like to play second fiddle to Larry Bird,’’ he said. “I say it’s still a pretty mean second fiddle, because he was the best.” Wearing his uniform No. 32 for the last time, sitting on a press table 1,200 miles from Boston with only a few stragglers remaining in the stands, McHale said goodbye with his customary class, then turned and walked quietly back to the locker room. Cavaliers 93, Nets 84 At East Rutherford, N J., Cleveland took advantage of an injury to yet another of New Jersey’s centers. The Nets led by as much as 14 in the first quarter, but Sam Bowie went down with a sprained left foot in the second quarter, and the Cavaliers started to pound the ball inside against fourth-stringer Dwayne Schintzius and flu-ridden reserve Rick Mahom.    , CLEVELAND (93) Nance 9-17 5 6 23, Sanders 1 6 0-2 2, Daugherty 8 14 6 8 22, Ehlo 9 16 3 4 2?, Price 2-12 3 3 7, Williams 1-10 2 2 4, Wilkins 1-2 2-2 4, Ferry 1- 1 O O 2, Brandon 3-6 1 1 7.

Pirates (Continued From Page 9A) and everybody will think I got the plate, but Slaught knew, so I tried to (fake) him out.” Walk (3-2), who had lost his last two starts, was nearly as effective as he was in beating the Braves 7-1 in Game 5 of the National League playoffs The right-hander, only 6-9 lifetime against Atlanta, allowed seven hits in the first four innings, but benefited from three double plays and a disputed pickoff of David Justice at first base in the fourth. With the Braves leading 1-0, Justice debated trying to stretch a liner into right field into a double before returning to first. He barely beat Orlando Merced’s throw, but was called out by umpire Gary Darling when he momentarily lifted a foot off the base. Terry Pendleton followed with a double and Sid Bream singled, but Damon Berryhill grounded into a PITTSBURGH ab r h bi ab r h bi 4 0 0 0 Marlin lf 3 1 0 0 3 0 2 I JaBell ss 4 1 1 0 4 0 0 0 VnSlyk cf 4 I 1 1 4 0 1 0 King 3b 4 0 3 3 3 0 1 0 Merced rf 3 0 1 0 3 0 2 0 KYnfl 1b 4 0 0 0 3 0 0 0 Slaught c 3 0 1 0 3 0 0 0 Foley 2b 3 0 0 0 2 I 1 0 Walk p 2 1 1 0 1 0 0 0 Wehner ph I 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 Wagner p 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 Belinda p 0 0 0 0 30 I 7 I Totals 31 4 8 4 OOI OOO 000- I ATLANTA Nixon cf Blauser ss Trsco lf Justice rf Pndlton 3b Bream 1 b Brryhll c Lemke 2b GMddx p Klesko ph Mrcker p Howell p Totals Atlanta Pittsburgh    OOO 002    02k—4 E Justice (I) DP—Atlanta I, Pittsburgh 3.
