BOSTON -- The Boston fans chanted it like a mantra: "LAR-RY! LAR-RY!"And until the fourth quarter of last night's Game 5, when it appeared that all had been lost for the Celtics, Larry Bird did little to answer their petitions.Larry Legend had become Larry, legend? Bird would shoot after the chant, and the fans would respond, "OOHHHH!"Then, as quickly as you can say mystique, Bird answered the call and an 18-point lead never disappeared so fast.The Celtics, inspired by Bird (16 points) and Reggie Lewis (30)
