Radja's Return Sparks Celtics

Article excerpt

Dino Radja returned to Boston's lineup Monday night after missing 15 games with a broken hand and scored 10 points in the fourth quarter as the Celtics beat visiting Washington 114-101, the Bullets' eighth consecutive loss.

Radja finished with 18 points and Dominique Wilkins had 34, including 24 in the first half. Scott Skiles had 24 points with 11 assists and nine rebounds for Washington, and Gheorge Muresan's 19 points was one basket short of his career high.

Boston led 100-95 with 5:01 to play when Washington was called for illegal defense for the fifth time. Wilkins converted the free throw and Radja made two baskets before Dee Brown's 3-pointer completed an 8-0 run and gave the Celtics a 108-97 lead.

Radja had not played since Dec. 6, when he broke his right hand against New York.
