April 26, 1991: One of the more classic First Round series of all-time! The story of this series was Larry Bird's back and his heroic entrance during the 3rd quarter of a classic Game 5. A struggle between the aging Celtics led by Bird, Kevin McHale and Robert Parish and the upstart Indiana Pacers led by star Chuck Person and up and coming players Reggie Miller and Rik Smits. After this Game 1 Bird went to the hospital so he could enjoy a good night's rest.
