Are you one of the Celtics fans who longs for the good old days when a clothesline in the Finals was just a regular foul? Do you long for the days when Larry Bird, Kevin McHale and Robert Parish WERE walking through those doors? Well, I've got good news for you. At 5:30 PM ET today, on NBA-TV, as part of Old School Monday, they will air a Celtics-Pistons game from March 3, 1985. Kevin McHale torched Detroit for 56 points in a 138-129 win over the Pistons at the Boston Garden. Isiah Thomas had 33 points in the loss and Larry Bird chipped in with 30, but it was McHale's 22-28 shooting that stole the show in this one.

And, if you want to further immerse yourself in Celtics past, at 7:30 PM ET, you can watch the Chicago Bulls vs. the Boston Celtics Game 2, in the 1986 Eastern Conference first-round playoff series.   This double overtime game featured Michael Jordan's record 63 points but the Celtics' teamwork overcame Jordan's explosion to win the game.

And for those masochistic type Celtics fans, there is a replay of all 5 episodes of the Association that featured the Celtics from 3:00 AM ET through 5:30 AM ET. I still have not watched the final two episodes where they learn about the Perk trade. I just can't. But if you're into staying up all night and fell you need a Celtics' fix, it's there.
