Boston 130, Detroit 123

PONTIAC, Mich.--Boston's Larry Bird scored 10 of his 33 points in the fourth quarter last night to lead the Celtics to a 130-123 National Basketball Association victory over the Detroit Pistons in the season opener for both teams.

The victory, before a Silverdome crowd of 27,563--largest opening night crowd in Pistons' history--launched the Celtics on a defense of the NBA title they won last spring.
