The Knicks ralUed from a 17-point deficit on Sunday to win in double overtime and they botHieed back from a 13- point disadvantage Wednesday night to take the lead 97-96 with 16 seconds left on Bill Bradley 's long Jumpshot. But Silas hauled down a rebound under the Boston basket and was fouled by Dave DeBusSchere as he attempted to shoot. He made two free throws and then snatched up a rebound of Willis Reed's desperation fallaway jumper at the final buzzer. While Silas provided the muscle, the inspiration came from John Havlicek. tiavlicek, r >' If * * - J J F the Celts' leading scorer this season who sjit out Sunday'i game with a bruised shtfUMer^ scored 18 poitits and sfwrked Boston when it nee <ffcd a boost.
