The Detroit Pistons beat the Boston Celtics 125-108 in front of a record crowd of 61,983 at the Pontiac Silverdome. The Pistons’ effort is led by Adrian Dantley and Joe Dumars, who score 22 and 20 points, respectively, while Vinnie Johnson scores 19 points off the bench in the win. It is the first meeting in Detroit between the two rivals that staged a classic seven-game battle in the Eastern Conference Finals last spring.
