Boston Celtics were sup posed to be too hurt and too tired to win a game against the Los Angeles But now that the Celtics have reduced Los Angeles advantage in the NBA championship series to 21 and held the Lakers running game in there will he no more lame excuses after tonights Game 4 at Boston Theyve proved they arent so banged Lakers guard Magic Johnson Now that thats over we can get back to The Celtics were bothered during the season and the playoffs by a series of knee and foot in juries that hobbled starters Robert Kevin McFIale and Danny Alnge and deprived the bench of Bill Walton and Scott All the talk about them being injured took away from how great we were said guard Byron who had a total of 64 points in the two Los Angeles but scored four in the 109103 defeat on Now theyve beaten us and theyre not injured didnt see anyone limping out on the Lakers Coach Pat Riley They had so many Injuries this season that it became part of their picture and ultimately pulled them Blowout losses in the first two games had the Celtics believing they werent physically capable of stopping the but Ainge said Sundays victory proved Its a frustrating Aingc said of the two I think that frustration is Its back to Ainge was at midcourt when the clock ran out in Game and he slammed the ball to the floor in We gave everything we had and finally said who missed three earlier playoff

who has aggravated an ankle injury several times during the had foul but still scored 16 points in 26 Riley and the Lakers said that if they can cor rect a few shortcomings they will over come the although they have won 85 of their last 87 games at Boston We feel like we did it to ourselves they didnt do it to Johnson Not boxing out really killed In the first two it was so easy to score and get good shots that we got frivolous with our shot thinking that anything would go Riley Its a subconscious If you ask them if they were theyll say In Los we pushed the ball up constant we kept guard Michael Cooper What we did Sunday was push it for a minute or then get caught up in the Celtics Kiley was most upset at the Celtics 5641 re bounding advantage in Game We got pushed around underneath the Riley We wont win if we get outrebounded like Boston is trying to become the first team to repeat as NBA champions since the 1969 That Boston also lost the first two games of the bestofseven series in Los then came back to win the title In seven But Johnson brushed off the historical significance of the 1969 I was 10 years old he This is and were just trvlng to win this Johnson said he didnt see that either team has a psychological edge at this point in the Their confidence level is much higher than it but were still up Johnson My philosophy is that the best team will no mat ter When you get to the you have to believe they cant psych you out and you cant psych them Boston Coach Jones that the Celtics could have confidence problems if they can force the series back to even if

Although he wont take charge of the NCAA for about a Dick Schultz is going right to work on the sometimestattered image of the governing body of college The common perception of most people you talk to is that the NCAA is some bureaucratic organization in Kansas City that makes all these con troversial when the NCAA is said who has signed a fiveyear contract to succeed Walter Byers as NCAA
