Description

Lakers versus Celtics was a 1989 video game that was available for the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis game console and for computers. The game was highly successful; it was the first game endorsed by the NBA and was the first to contain multiple NBA stars and teams in one game. Established stars you can play in the game are Larry Bird, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Magic Johnson, as well as rising ones such as Michael Jordan and Patrick Ewing.
Play mode

The game could be played in various ways: players could play against each other, or against the computer. Games against the computer were divided into two levels, "exhibition" or "playoffs". Players could pick from one of the sixteen teams that had gone to the playoffs in the NBA the year before the game was released.

Games could be configured for 2, 5, 8 or 12 minute quarters.
