face off
LANDOVER, MD. - The Bos-
ton Celtics, who have suddenly
come alive after two lacklustre
performances, seek to deadlock
the NBA's Eastern Conference
finals tonight against the Wash-
ington Bullets.
The defending champion Celt-
ics dropped the first two games
of the best-ofs-even series, the
second by a whopping 25 points,
but they bounced back at home
Sunday to whip the Bullets 101-
90.
In a basketball version of
the old chicken - egg riddle,
Coach K. C. Jones of the Bul-
lets found it difficult to de-
cide which contributed most
to the turn-about-Washing-

bsoards. Theyoid it aii.
"But we were lousy in every
phase of the game-on offense,
on defense and on the boards."
Following their first victory,
the Celtics served notice that
they were far from dead.
"We believe in ourselves,"
said John Havlicek. who scor-
ed 26 points. "We've been
two down before and came
back."
Nevertheless, Washington has
lost only six games, counting
both regilar season and play-
offs, at the Capital Centre this
year. And only one more game
in the series will be played at
home after tonight.
The winner of the Boston-
Washington series advances to
the NBA finals again the winner
of the Golden State-Chicago ser-
ies for the Western Conference
crown.
