Celtics vs. Nets
October 31, 1979
Wednesday – Rutgers Athletic Center
Halloween in Piscataway is normally not described as a “treat,” and that was no different in 1979. The Celtics, however, dished out all the tricks to a New Jersey Nets team already in shambles, arriving at the Rutgers Athletic Center looking to keep pace with the undefeated 76ers in the standings. The six game road trip was mercifully coming to an end, and after a sluggish start in Indiana and San Antonio, the Celtics looked to win their third straight game on the road.
