In the wake (no pun intended) of Game 1 of the NBA Final Monday afternoon, a couple of questions spring to mind. Danny Ainge? Scott Wedman? Also: Long about the third quarter Monday, would anyone have been surprised if Red Auerbach had reported into the game and canned a couple of two-hand set shots from half court? That's the only way the Celtics could have made it more embarrassing for the Lakers. The important thing to remember, Laker fans, is not to give up.

Philadelphia Coach Billy Cunningham called it a gambling defense. Boston players called it an illegal zone. Whatever, it put some suspense into what looked like a blowout Friday night at Boston Garden. The 76ers, trailing by 23 points, closed the margin to one point before the Celtics finally escaped with a 112-108 victory. The victory was the 10th straight for the Celtics, giving them a six-game lead over the 76ers in the Atlantic Division.

On the day after Boston's 148-114 victory over the Lakers in Game 1 of the championship series, the Celtics' shooting stars, Danny Ainge and Scott Wedman, were besieged by the media. Saturday, after the Lakers' first workout since their 109-102 victory in Game 2, forward Mitch Kupchak was the man who couldn't take a step without tripping over a reporter's feet or a cameraman's cord. "This is the first time I've seen more than one person around my locker in two years," Kupchak said.

The Boston Celtics, in an effort to make certain they would have a well-rested starting team for the playoffs, spent the off-season building a bench. They added center Bill Walton, guard Jerry Sichting and forward Sly Williams, and drafted talented Sam Vincent. They already had sharpshooting Scott Wedman coming off the bench. Coach K.C. Jones has made an effort to make use of his reserves, but none of them has been averaging as many as 20 minutes a game.

First the Boston Celtics lost Larry Bird and Coach K.C. Jones. And then they lost their first game in four years to the Phoenix Suns, 108-101, Monday night at Phoenix. The Celtics played the last 9 minutes and 49 seconds of the game without Bird and Jones, who were ejected when each was charged with a second technical foul. Walter Davis scored 20 as the Suns held off a furious late rally by the Celtics.

For the Boston Celtics, their attempt to repeat as NBA champions will be accompanied by two presences: one whose achievements are unsurpassed, the other whose promise is now in the past. This was to have been Len Bias's rookie year. He was going to join the Celtics as they sought to become the first repeat titlists since Bill Russell's Boston teams of 1968-69. Larry Bird was going to attend rookie camp to work with the star from Maryland.

Wearing a Grateful Dead T-shirt and a towel, Bill Walton considered the meaning of time. The best way to understand it, he said, is to close your eyes and pretend you're spread out on a towel at the beach. "Now, you're sitting there and it's about 2 o'clock in the afternoon, and you don't want the sun to go down yet," Walton said. "See? I'm in no hurry to go anywhere. I'm sure June will come along in its own good time. I'm having too much fun in the present."

At halftime, super star Larry Bird of the Boston Celtics had only six points on 3-for-11 shooting, but the Philadelphia 76ers weren't ignoring him. "You always know he's there," Philadelphia Coach Matt Guokas said Sunday after Bird scored 22 points in the second half in rallying the Celtics to a 105-103 victory over the 76ers. "Bird really got it going for them," Guokas said. "He just didn't make three-pointers. He makes plays for other people, he rebounds.

When Danny Ainge made his last six shots of the first quarter, including an off-balance jumper from 20 feet at the buzzer, the Boston Massacre was on. Then, his Celtic teammate, Scott Wedman, came off the bench to hit four shots, including three three-pointers. That was in the second quarter. Before the game was over, Wedman had hit 11 of 11 shots, 4 of 4 from three-point range, to establish an NBA championship series record with a 1.000 shooting percentage. Forget the cliche.
