Outlook: The Bullets (4-9) have won only one of seven road games. They dropped a 102-90 decision to the Celtics at the Capital Centre Nov. 17 when Baltimore native Reggie Lewis (21 points) triggered a fourth-quarter Boston rally. Bernard King was held to 16 points by the Bulls at Chicago Wednesday night, but maintained his league scoring lead at 29.2 ppg. The Celtics (11-2) have won seven straight and lead the Atlantic Division. Their home game with Atlanta Wednesday night was postponed because of a dangerously wet floor. Larry Bird needs only 12 more points to become the fourth NBA player in history to score 20,000 points and dish out 5,000 assists. He leads the Celtics in fTC scoring (20.7) and rebounding (9.2).
