Washington was right there but they couldn't build up the big leads that they had in the first two games. When they started to wear down in the face of the Warriors' depth this time, they had no cushion. Washington was leading by two points, 56-54, in the third period when Golden State exploded with a 15-6 run without starters Butch Beard, Phil Smith or Clifford Ray. Jeff Mullins, Derrick Dickey and George Johnson played key roles in Golden State holding their lead. They led 87-77 in the fourth when they went on a run to go up 97-83 with 4:47 left to play.

Warriors coach Al Attles was ejected in the first half and assistant coach Joe Roberts took over. Mike Riordan had been playing very physically as he picked up three fouls in 3½ minutes of playing time in the first half. Riordan and Rick Barry tangled after Riordan's third foul and had to be separated. Attles came off the bench to argue and was ejected from the game by referee Richie Powers. Washington held on to the lead into the fourth quarter; leading by eight with less than five minutes to go. Golden State would not quit though as Washington fought to avoid a sweep. A lay-up by Butch Beard gave Golden State the lead at 94-93 with 1:31 left in the fourth. Neither team could score as both defenses forced turnovers. Washington had to foul and Butch Beard made one of two shots with 19 seconds left to give the Warriors a 95-93 lead. Phil Chenier missed with five seconds left and Beard grabbed the rebound and drew another foul. Needing just one to clinch, Beard misses the first two shots before draining the third. Washington would get a meaningless hoop at the buzzer.

Dave Cowens recorded a triple-double with 25 points, 21 rebounds and 10 assists as the Suns had no answer for him. Jo Jo White was only 1-4 from the field in the first half before going 8-11 in the second half to keep Phoenix at bay. Phoenix trailed by two at the end of the first quarter as they failed to take advantage of 11 first quarter Celtic turnovers.

The run was started by steals from Jo Jo White and Charlie Scott. Scott was 1-9 from the field in the first half but cranked it up with 12 points in the third quarter. Boston again got out of the gate slow without John Havlicek (23pts) in the starting line-up. Boston did not make a field goal in the first three minutes of the game and prompted Boston coach Tom Heinsohn to rush Havlicek into the game again. The Suns get great efforts from Paul Westphal (28pts) and Rookie of the Year Alvin Adams (19pts and 15 rebounds), but it cound not overcome a superior Boston attack on this night (Quality 9)

Boston suffered a blow when Dave Cowens fouled out with 5:18 left to play. They still fought back and came within two, at 96-94, with 2:15 on the clock. Adams then found Paul Westphal for a layup that pushed the lead back to four. Adams would follow his assist with two hoops of his own to extend the Suns' lead to 102-94.

(06-02-76) 1976 NBA Finals Game 4 - Boston Celtics @ Phoenix Suns - Phoenix evened the series in a wild affair that went down to the wire. It didn't start out well for Phoenix as they missed their first eight shots from the floor. Neither team could pull away in this seesaw affair. The biggest lead by either team was Boston's five-point margin in the third quarter. Both Tom Heinsohn and John McLeod were hit with technical fouls in the game. Phoenix was clinging to a two-point lead with 1:22 to play and Gar Heard's tip-in with 58 seconds left gave Phoenix a 109-105 lead. Dave Cowens brought Boston within 109-107 with a running hook at the 50-second mark. Phoenix was trying to milk the clock when Don Nelson was called for a player control foul. Boston wasn't over the limit so the shot clock was reset and Phoenix milked the clock some more. Keith Erickson finally missed with 13 seconds left and Boston corralled the ball. Against a frantic Suns' defense, Boston scrambled for a shot with Jo Jo White finally putting up an off-balance jumper that was wide at the buzzer. - Added October, 2008

Boston went on an 11-4 run to take a 77-71 lead as Dave Cowens (21pts, 17reb) and Havlicek scored all 11 points in the run. Charlie Scott (25pts, 11reb), who had been struggling the past few games, came up big in the fourth with nine points and three steals.

Bill Walton had a monster game, a near quadruple-double. Caldwell Jones got in foul trouble and neither he, nor Darryl Dawkins, could handle Walton who finished with 20 points, 23 rebounds, eight blocks and seven assists. He keyed a run that started with four minutes left in the first period. Philadelphia was leading 22-18 when Portland went on a 39-20 tear to take a 57-42 lead with three minutes left in the half. Portland was aid in their run by grabbing nine offensive rebounds in the second period. Portland's backcourt outscored Philly's 30-4 in the first half. Philadelphia tried to get back into the game but was still trailing by 12 with six minutes left in the game. The 76ers then came to life as they cut to five at 95-90. But Bob Gross made two acrobatic layups to push it back to 99-90. Behind Julius Erving (40pts... many coming on an amazing array of spectacular flying dunks!) and McGinnis (who would make 29-52 shots while the rest of the team was 15-39) they cut it to three, 108-105, with 51 seconds remaining. Maurice Lucas made one of two free throws to make it 109-105 before McGinnis hit a shot with 18 seconds to play. With Portland leading 109-107, the 76ers forced a jump ball and won the tap. Philadelphia then got three good looks at the basket to send the game into overtime but Erving, Lloyd Free and McGinnis all missed and time ran out before they could get a fourth try.

Seattle then throws the inbounds pass right to Westphal who lays it and gets fouled to make it a 2 point game with 4 seconds to go and gets a shot to make it a one point game. The Suns choose to miss the free throw and try for the rebound to tie the game. Westphal misses so badly on the first shot that it bounds off the top of the back board and right back to him so he takes a second shot at missing right away, but Seattle rebounds to seal the game. - NBAtv rebroadcast (Quality 8.5) - added March, 2011

Of course, Washington contended that Gus Williams committed goaltending on the final play. Wright, who was 19-19 from the line in the playoffs, missed the first shot but made the next two to give the Bullets a 99-97 win. Wright scored 12 of Washington's 17 points in the fourth quarter. Seattle dug itself a huge hole as they fell behind by 18 points with nine minutes left in the fourth before rallying. Gus Williams who scored 14 points in the final stanza led the rally. Seattle tied it at 97 on an offensive rebound basket. Tom Henderson missed but Lonnie Shelton lost the ball out of bounds giving Washington possession with five seconds left. The Sonics compounded their woes by making only 11 of 23 free throws. The mounted their comeback with ferocious defense that forced 20 Bullet turnovers. Washington was leading 37-32 with 8:11 left in the second quarter when Wright entered. Wright scored 10 of the Bullets' next 14 points as Washington extended the lead to 51-38. - Added March, 2009

Philadelphia had a 39-30 lead in the second quarter when reserve forward Mark Landsberger came up with two offensive rebound buckets in a row for L.A. to stem the tide. Darryl Dawkins was saddled with three quick fouls which limited his playing time. With the game tied at the start of the second half, L.A. scored the first 12 points of the third quarter to take a 65-53 lead with 7:39 left in the quarter. The 76ers were just unable to make anything in the third as they shot 3-20 from the field. What's more, two of the three made hoops were layups as Philadelphia made 1-18 from out on the floor. Dawkins picked up his fourth foul early in the third on an offensive foul as he went for a dunk. Magic Johnson (16pts, 10ast, 9reb) pulled down nine rebounds in the third quarter to help key the Laker break. Jamaal Wilkes and Michael Cooper held Julius Erving to only one free throw in the decisive third period. After L.A. achieved their largest lead at 78-62, Philadelphia began to comeback behind Erving who scored 11 points in the fourth period. The 76ers clawed within 92-88 with 6:01 left in the game after a 10-0 spurt. Norm Nixon then hit Landsberger on a backdoor play to make it a 94-88.

The Lakers' team doctors declared Abdul-Jabbar and his bad ankle unfit for Game 6, so Laker coach Paul Westhead made a bold move by asking Magic Johnson to jump center. Johnson had no problem and was up to the challenge. Early on, the Sixers seemed unsure how to counter the matchup problem. The Lakers went up 7-0, then 11-4. Finally, the Sixers used their newfound size advantage in the second quarter to take a 52-44 lead. The Lakers countered by collapsing more in the paint and rallied for a 60-60 tie at the half. Los Angeles opened the third period with a 14-0 run, keyed by Jamaal Wilkes, who had 16 points in the quarter. In the fourth with a little over five minutes left, the Sixers had rallied to cut the Laker lead to 103-101. After a timeout, the tired Lakers went on one last run, with Magic scoring nine points down the stretch on the way to a final 123-107 margin. Wilkes had a career-high 37 points and added 10 rebounds. Jim Chones effectively shut down the middle in place of Abdul-Jabbar and finished with 11 points and 10 rebounds, and held Darryl Dawkins to 14 points and a scant four rebounds. Michael Cooper, in a rare start, scored 16 points, and Mark Landsberger contributed 10 boards. But, this night belonged to the rookie MVP Magic. He scored 42 points, including all 14 of his free-throw attempts. He added 15 rebounds, seven assists, three steals and a block. "It was amazing, just amazing," said Erving, who led Philly with 27 points.

(05-31-83) 1983 NBA Finals Game 4 - Philadelphia 76ers @ Los Angeles Lakers - L.A. had to try and stave off elimination without Norm Nixon or Bob McAdoo who were out with their injuries. It looked like they would do so as they raced to a 17-point 2nd quarter lead. Kareem held Moses to only 9 points and 7 rebounds in the 1st half while scoring 17 of his own. Philadelphia started to comeback in the 2nd half and closed the gap to 82-78 late in the 3rd period. It looked like L.A. would survive the challenge when they closed the 3rd with a 11-4 run to lead by 11. However, the 4th period was all 76’ers. Moses, who would score 15 points and grab 16 boards in the 2nd half, led the charge. However, it was Dr. J who closed the door. Sensing his 1st NBA title, he made the biggest plays. With L.A. leading 106-104, The Doctor stole the ball from Kareem and dunked it home to tie the game at 106. Following a Laker free throw, Erving converted a 3-point play to give the 76’ers a 109-107 lead with 59 seconds left. After a steal, Dr. J then nailed a 1-handed runner over Magic from the top of the key to make it 111-107 with 24 seconds left. - From Sixers dynasty DVD (Quality 10)

(05-31-84) 1984 NBA Finals Game 2 - Los Angeles Lakers @ Boston Celtics - Boston came out strong in the 1st period and only Magic’s 14 points kept L.A. from being run out of Boston Garden. L.A. rallied in the 2nd quarter behind James Worthy and Jamaal Wilkes to close the gap to 2 at the half with a 15-4 run after Boston led 57-44. Worthy would finish the game with 5 3-point plays as Boston could not contain his quickness. Kareem scored 9 points in the first 3:34 of the 3rd quarter as L.A. took their first lead of the game, 66-65. Boston would answer with a run of 11-3 to lead 76-69. The Lakers would answer with their own run of 18-6 to lead 87-82 late in the 3rd. Boston would score the last 8 points (4 by Danny Ainge) of the 3rd to re-take the lead. In the 4th, L.A. took a 115-113 lead with 18 seconds left. McHale was fouled and had 2 shots. L.A. coach Pat Riley told Magic that he wanted a timeout if McHale made the 2nd shot but Magic misunderstood. After McHale missed both, L.A. called timeout and allowed the Celtics to set up their defense. Magic got the ball to Worthy in the backcourt, but with Magic standing just an arms’ length away, Worthy tried to hit Byron Scott with a crosscourt pass. Celtic Gerald Henderson picked off pass streaking towards the hoop and laid in the tying basket with 13 seconds left. L.A. would get no last shot attempt as Magic was caught dribbling on the perimeter as the horn sounded. In the OT, Scott Wedman took a feed from Henderson and hit a baseline jumper to make it 122-121 Boston with 14 ticks on the clock. Larry Bird hit 2 free throws with 2 seconds left to provide the final margin. - Worthy 29 Pts, Magic 27/10/ 9, Bird 27 Pts - added December, 2007

(06-06-84) 1984 NBA Finals Game 4 - Boston Celtics @ Los Angeles Lakers - OT - The Lakers missed yet another chance to throw dirt on the Celtics as they squandered several late chances to take a 3-1 lead in the series. L.A. led by as many as 14 points in the 1st half and looked to be in charge. L.A. made 10 of their first 11 shots as they took a 31-21 lead late in the 1st period. Boston closed the period on an 11-1 run to offset the Lakers’ early streak. However, the Celtics started the 2nd period by missing their first 9 shots as L.A. went on a 14-1 run behind 6 points from Swen Nater to take a 47-33 lead. Boston suffered a setback when bench sharpshooter Scott Wedman fractured his fibula. L.A. was still leading 76-70 in the 3rd quarter when the psychological turning point of the series occurred. Kevin McHale clotheslined Kurt Rambis on a breakaway and a near pier 6 brawl erupted. Just 1:29 later Kareem and Bird had to be separated by officials as well. Boston would go on to take a 104-101 with 5:24 left in the game but L.A. answered with an 8-0 run to take a 109-104 lead. L.A. still led by 5 (113-108) with less than a minute remaining. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar then fouled out as Robert Parish scored. Kareem was a big loss as he had been on a roll with 14 4th quarter points. Parish hit the free throw to cut it to 113-111. Parish then knocked the ball away from Magic and Larry Bird converted 2 free throws to tie the game at 113. Parish came up with another steal with 4 seconds left but both Bird & McHale missed opportunities to win the game in regulation. L.A. would be haunted by 4 missed free throws in the final minute. Magic Johnson missed 2 with 35 seconds left and James Worthy missed 2 with 10 seconds left after being given the "choke" sign by Cedric Maxwell and M.L. Carr. In the extra period, Bird hit a 15-foot turnaround to give Boston a 125-123 lead with 16 seconds left in OT. L.A. could not answer as they could not find Worthy who had 10 points in the OT. Dennis Johnson converted 2 free throws to clinch the game. - Celtics Dynasty DVD (Quality 10)

(06-08-84) 1984 NBA Finals Game 5 - Los Angeles Lakers @ Boston Celtics - Bird 34 points (15-20 shooting), 17 rebounds... The game was known as the "Heat Game" or "Sauna Game", as it was played under 97-degree heat, and without any air conditioning, at Boston Garden. The Celtics did not warm up with their sweat pants on because of extreme heat, and oxygen tanks were provided to give air to exhausted players. It was also the last time that a team with home court advantage in a 7 game series played a Game 5 in it's own floor. The next year, the NBA Finals switched to a 2-3-2 format with Game 5 going to the team without home-court advantage.

(05-27-85) 1985 NBA Finals Game 1- LA Lakers @ Boston Celtics - The Memorial Day Massacre! The Celtics broke numerous championship series records as they buried the Lakers. It started in the 1st quarter when Danny Ainge scored 15 points as he sank his final 6 shots of the period. Scott Wedman, who would set a record by going 11-11 in the game, scored 11 points in the 2nd quarter as Boston built a 30-point lead. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was a non-factor as he picked up 3 fouls in less then 12 minutes in the 1st half. Byron Scott scored just 4 points on 2-8 shooting in the opening half as his personal woes in Boston continued. Dennis Johnson held Magic Johnson to just 1 rebound in the game. Boston led 79-49 at the half with the 79 1st half points being another record. They would set another record with their 148 points for the game. Kevin McHale led the 2nd half carnage with 13 3rd quarter points. L.A.’s frustration boiled over when Scott nailed Ainge with a forearm shiver. The refs missed that, but they did not miss Ainge throwing the ball at Scott in retaliation. Ainge was hit with a technical foul.

(05-30-85) 1985 NBA Finals Game 2 - LA Lakers @ Boston Celtics - After stewing over their loss, L.A. answered back to even the series. The Lakers ran out to an 18 point halftime lead. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar who bounced back from a disappointing Game 1 led them. L.A. jumped out to a 21-6 lead behind 9 points from James Worthy and extended it 30-16 with 2:25 left in the 1st half. Boston ended the 1st with a 10-1 run to get back in the game. The Lakers opened the 2nd as hot as the 1st behind 8 points from Michael Cooper. L.A. led 46-33 with 7:06 left in the half. Robert Parish limped off at that point but he would return shortly. Boston tried to comeback behind Larry Bird’s 12 3rd quarter points as they cut the lead from 18 to 8. Abdul-Jabbar would answer with 12 points of his own in the quarter including some of the 10 skyhooks that he would sink in the game. Boston would close the gap from 12 in the 4th but they could never seriously threaten L.A.

(06-02-85) 1985 NBA Finals Game 3 - Boston Celtics @ LA Lakers - Kareem Abdul-Jabbar became the NBA’s all-time leading playoff scorer in Game 3 as the Lakers blitzed the Celtics. L.A. ran their record at the Forum to 25-1 since February 1st. In the 1st quarter, neither team led by more than 4 points as Kareem continued his hot shooting with 10 points In the 1st 7 minutes of the game. The game was physical and was marred by 3 different shoving matches. One resulted in Celtic Ray Williams being ejected after punching Kurt Rambis while another resulted in a double technical Bob McAddo and Kevin McHale. Boston pulled ahead by 10 at 48-38 in the 2nd quarter. The Lakers then kicked it into high gear behind James Worthy, Magic Johnson, and Bob McAdoo. With Magic leading the break, L.A. would end the half on a 27-11 run to take the lead. McAdoo hit 4 straight jumpers in a 2½-minute stretch. Worthy would score 15 points in the 2nd quarter and 14 in the 3rd quarter. L.A. would continue to pull away from Boston as they pounded Boston on the boards to trigger Showtime.

(06-05-85) 1985 NBA Finals Game 4 - Boston Celtics @ LA Lakers - In a back and forth game, that saw both teams seemingly in charge, Boston pulled it out at the end to even the series. L.A. looked ready to run away again but Boston fought back and took the lead at the end of the half behind Larry Bird’s late jumper. The Lakers took the lead in the 3rd and looked to be in command as they led 92-85 early in the final period. Bird would score 11 points in the final stanza to lead a Celtic comeback. Bird culminated a 10-2 run with 2 free throws to give Boston a 95-94 lead with 6:42 to play. With Boston leading 97-96, Bird stole the ball and then hit a fallaway jumper to make it 99-96. Now, it was the Lakers turn to rally as they finally came back to tie it at 105 on a Magic Johnson follow shot in the final half-minute. The Celtics had the last possession and, after L.A. double-teamed Bird, he found Dennis Johnson who knocked down a 21-footer as the horn sounded to win the game. - Added October, 2008

(06-07-85) 1985 NBA Finals Game 5 - Boston Celtics @ LA Lakers - Once again, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar came out hot with 12 points in the 1st quarter. There were 5 lead changes and 4 ties in the 1st quarter alone. Kevin McHale led the way for Boston with 13 points in the 1st quarter. L.A. coach Pat Riley made a defensive switch and had Abdul-Jabbar guard McHale and he put either Kurt Rambis or Bob McAdoo on Robert Parish and Kareem stopped McHale’s scoring binge. The score was tied at 44 with 6:52 left in the 2nd quarter when L.A. ripped off a 20-7 run to close the half. James Worthy had 9 points in the run while Robert Parish had all 7 Celtic points. The Lakers would stretch the lead to 18, 70-52, early in the 3rd period. With the score 76-59, Celtics coach K.C. Jones was ejected after receiving his 2nd technical foul. The lead was still 89-72 late in the 3rd before Boston tried to stage a comeback. Boston closed the gap to 4 points on 4 different occasions in the 4th but could not get any closer. L.A. did not score for the first 3:43 of the 4th as their hot shooting deserted them. Boston would trail 101-97 with 6 minutes left before Kareem and Magic would combine for the next 7 Laker hoops (Kareem 4 and Magic 3). With the score 107-103, L.A. put it away when Kareem hit a sky hook, Kurt Rambis converted an offensive board into free throws and Magic converted a Rambis steal into a fastbreak hoop. That left the score at 113-103 with only 2:42 left.

(06-09-85) 1985 NBA Finals Game 6 - LA Lakers @ Boston Celtics - Lakers erase the ghosts by winning 1st championship in 8 tries against Celtics, and at the Garden no less! Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (29pts) again helped L.A. off to a good start with 11 points in the 1st quarter. He would pick up his 3rd personal foul early in the 2nd quarter with the score tied at 39. Magic (14pts, 14ast, 10reb) would also leave with his 3rd foul at the 3:33 mark. Mitch Kupchak filled in with 6 points and 5 rebounds; most during the 2nd period to keep the game tied. James Worthy (28pts) made his first appearance in goggles in this game after being poked in the eye in Game 5. In the 3rd quarter, a 8-0 L.A. run left them with a 73-63 lead. They would still lead by 9 midway through the 4th quarter. Boston used only 7 players in the game and, perhaps as a result, Dennis Johnson and Danny Ainge missed 25 of 31 shots. L.A. would hold off Boston late in the 4th with 2 Magic drives and 3 Kareem sky hooks as the Lakers finally stomped out the Leprechaun. - Lakers Dynasty DVD (Quality 10)

(04-20-86) EC 1st RD Game 2 - Chicago Bulls @ Boston Celtics - Michael Jordan's career playoff high 63 points! Jordan was able to play in only 18 regular-season games in his second year in the NBA, after breaking a small bone in his foot in Chicago's third game of the year. Although he was encouraged to sit out the end of the season in order to make sure he was fully healed for the next, he insisted on coming back late in the season and led the Bulls to the 1986 NBA Playoffs. In Game 2 of Chicago's first round matchup against the eventual NBA champion Boston Celtics that Jordan showed just how thoroughly he had recovered. In the hallowed halls of the Boston Garden, he set a playoff record by scoring an amazing 63 points against what many considered to be one of the greatest NBA teams ever. The Celtics won the game, 135-131 in double-overtime, and went on to sweep the Bulls, but Jordan's playoff record still stands. "Michael was doing so much and so well, I found myself just wanting to stop and watch him -- and I was playing," said teammate John Paxson. "I didn't think anyone was capable of doing what Michael has done to us," marveled Celtics ace Larry Bird. "He is the most exciting, awesome player in the game today. I think it's just God disguised as Michael Jordan."

(06-08-86) 1986 NBA Finals Game 6 - Houston Rockets vs Boston Celtics - In one of the All Time Greatest Performances in NBA Finals History Larry Bird (29 points, 11 rebounds and 12 assists.) delivered the knockout punch with a triple-double performance, and figuratively speaking he did so early in this game as he would finish the 1st Half alone with 16 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists! No wonder he was named the MVP! Certainly one of the greatest teams of all time, the Bird lead Boston Celtics would win 114-97 over the Houston Rockets to take their 16th Crown, what turned out to the their last until turning the trick again 22 years later. The Rockets missed their chance in the 1st quarter when they committed 11 turnovers. Seven of those turnovers came in the first 6 minutes as Boston jumped out to a 22-10 lead. Hakeem Olajuwon (19 points, 13 rebounds) came up with 3 straight steals, 2 of whom he finished with dunks to cut the lead to 22-21. In the 2nd period, the Rockets could only make 6 of 23 shots. Boston would open up a 55-38 lead as they closed the half with a 24-10. Bird (13) and Kevin McHale (9) combined for 22 of the 24 points in the Celtic run. Ralph Sampson, booed with great vigor, scored only 2 points in the 1st half on 1-8 shooting. Boston outrebounded Houston 30-16 in the 1st half led by McHale’s 21 points and 9 rebounds. Bird helped put the game away with a trio of 3-pointers in the 3rd period. Houston would get no closer than 14 points in the 2nd half as Boston led by as many as 30 (97-67) in the 4th quarter. - Added March, 2009

(06-04-87) 1987 NBA Finals Game 2 - Los Angeles Lakers vs Boston Celtics - Highest scoring game in finals history! The Lakers were off and running again, but this time Boston stayed close early. Robert Parish’s 12 points in the opening frame kept the Celtics close. In the 2nd quarter, The Lakers exploded on a 20 point run in which Michael Cooper accounted for all 20 points via either basket or assist. Cooper tied a Finals record with 8 assists in the 2nd quarter while making 6 of 7 3-point attempts. L.A. was leading 49-42 when they scored 7 points in 50 seconds to go up 56-42. All in all, the Lakers outscored the Celtics 36-2 on fastbreak points in the 1st half. Trailing by 19 at the half, Boston tried to rally in the 3rd as Larry Bird (9), Dennis Johnson (12) and Kevin McHale (10) scored 31 of their 36 3rd quarter points. Boston did cut the lead from 22 points to 15 but it was all for naught as L.A. opened the 4th with an 8-0 run to take a 115-92 lead. Not too long after that, it was bench-clearing time. Magic tied the same record as Cooper when he came up with 8 3rd quarter assists. Things got even worse for Boston as Kevin McHale reinjured his foot. The Lakers shot a Finals record 61.5% from the field for the game. - Added March, 2009

(06-14-87) 1987 NBA Finals Game 6 - Los Angeles Lakers vs Boston Celtics - This is the ShowTime Lakers best team of their era! For a long while, it looked like Boston would force a dreaded 7th game. Dennis Johnson held Magic to 4 1st half points and stifled the Laker offense. After a 10-4 Laker start, the Celtics answered with a 15-2 run to take the lead. The Celtics would maintain and lead for all 12 minutes of the 2nd quarter. The Lakers fired out of the gates in the 3rd quarter, scoring the first 10 points of the quarter. That turned a 5 point deficit into a 5 point lead before Boston scored its first points nearly 3 minutes into the period. That bucket was followed by another 8-0 Laker run that gave L.A. a 69-58 lead. Boston connected on only 26% of its 3rd quarter shot attempts. Robert Parish picked up his 5th foul in the 4th as L.A. extended its lead to 89-70. Parish would later foul out with 7:22 left in the game, as Boston never got closer than 12 points the rest of the way. - Added October, 2008

(06-19-88) 1988 NBA Finals Game 6 - Detroit Pistons @ Los Angeles Lakers - Isiah Thomas Injury game - The Lakers used the hot hands of James Worthy and Byron Scott to forge a lead in the 2nd quarter. They were still leading 56-48 in the 3rd period when Isiah Thomas began one of the best quarters in Finals history. Thomas would go 11-13 from the field in 3rd quarter and score 25 points in the period. At one point, he scored 14 straight Piston points. However, with 4 minutes left in the 3rd, Thomas landed on Michael Cooper’s foot and severely sprained his ankle. He would return but it would have consequences. Still, with 1 minute remaining it looked like Detroit might win their 1st NBA championship as they led 102-99. Scott knocked down a 14-footer to cut the lead to 1 with 52 seconds left. Thomas then missed an 18-foot jumper and L.A. claimed the rebound. On the ensuing possession, Bill Laimbeer fouled Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on a skyhook attempt. The goggled one then made both shots to give the Lakers a 103-102 lead with 14 ticks left. Joe Dumars then missed a 5-footer in traffic and Scott pulled down the rebounded and was fouled with 0:02 left. He missed both shots but Detroit could not get a shot off. - ESPN Classic rebroadcast (Quality 9)

(06-21-88) 1988 NBA Finals Game 7 - Detroit Pistons @ Los Angeles Lakers - Lakers become first team to win back to back titles in two decades! The Pistons controlled the game in the 1st half and led by 5 after Isiah Thomas hit 2 jumpers in the last 27 seconds of the half. James Worthy and Adrian Datley both scored 11 points in the 1st quarter. Thomas, playing on a very bum wheel, scored 10 points in the 1st half but could play little after halftime. In the 2nd half, Michael Cooper finally broke out of his clump with some big shots as L.A. built a lead. The Pistons only made 1 field goal in the first 6:05 of the 3rd stanza. Worthy scored 7 straight to give L.A. a 56-54 lead. He would score 11 and Byron Scott would score 14 in the 3rd. The Lakers were leading 90-75 in the 4th when Chuck Daly went with a pressing line-up of Vinnie Johnson, John Salley, Joe Dumars, Dennis Rodman and Bill Laimbeer. The Pistons then mounted a comeback as they cut the lead to 98-92 with 3:52 left to play after a 13-4 run. They continued to claw back and cut it to 102-100 on a Dumars hoop with 1:17 remaining. Magic made 1 of 2 free throws but an ill-advised Rodman jumper got L.A. the ball right back and Scott nailed 2 free throws to make it 105-100 with less than 40 seconds remaining. Dumars again came through and cut it back to 3. Worthy made 1 of 2 at the line and Laimbeer nailed a 3 to cut the lead to 106-105 with 6 seconds left. A.C. Green got free for a lay-up on the ensuing in-bounds play and, when Thomas couldn’t get a final shot off, the Lakers had repeated. - Lakers Dynasty DVD (Quality 10)

Jordan 36 points 12 rebounds 8 assists, Magic Johnson 19 points 10 rebounds 10 assists, James Worthy 22 points. Jordan’s 6 three pointers and 35 points in the first half are both finals records

(06-05-91) NBA Finals Game 2 - Chicago Bulls Vs. Los Angeles Lakers - Michael Jordan preforms his unreal mid air hand switching lay up shown all the time nowadays! Bulls’ coach Phil Jackson switched this game and had Scottie Pippen guard Magic Johnson while Michael Jordan took Vlade Divac. Pippen held Magic’s inside game in check and was quicker than him as well. Horace Grant led the way in the 1st half with 14 points. Jordan scored only 2 points in the game’s first 20 minutes. Thereafter though, he would make his next 13 shots from the floor. Chicago was leading 58-51 when Byron Scott was called for a breakaway foul on Pippen with 8:05 left in the period. That seemed to wake Chicago as they went on to make 17 of 20 field goals in the 3rd. For the game, the Bulls shot a Finals record 61.7% from the floor. Even Jordan leaving with 4 fouls with 4:11 left in the 3rd did not stop them. Chicago led by 12 when he left and they increased their lead to 16 by the time he returned. Jordan then sparked an 11-0 run that put the Bulls up 97-71. He scored 7 of the 11 points and assisted on the other 2 hoops.

Chicago looked to have taken control when Horace Grant’s layup gave them a 90-87 lead with 1:07 to play. Sam Perkins scored on a drive to cut the lead to 1 with 0:39 left. After the Bulls failed to score, Vlade Divac scored on a layup while drawing a foul. After he converted the free throw, the Lakers led 92-90 with 10.9 seconds left. Michael Jordan then drove the length of the floor and hit a 14-foot shot to tie the game with 3.7 seconds left. The Lakers couldn’t score and the game into overtime. Jordan would score 6 of the Bulls 12 points as they pulled away in the extra session.

(06-09-91) NBA Finals Game 4 - Chicago Bulls Vs. Los Angeles Lakers

(06-12-91) NBA Finals Game 5 - Chicago Bulls Vs. Los Angeles Lakers - Neither James Worthy nor Byron Scott could comeback from their injuries to play in Game 5. Elden Campbell tried to pick up the slack by scoring 13 points in the 1st half as he outscored Michael Jordan (30 points & 10 assists) who had 12. Tony Smith played well after being forced into more playing time. But, in the end, not even Magic Johnson’s 20 assists nor his 30th career playoff triple-double could save L.A. The Lakers fought gamely though. In fact, they led 93-90 with 6:47 left in the game. Then Chicago unleashed a 9-0 run to take the lead by 6. They had a Scottie Pippen (32 points & 13 rebounds) 3 Pointer, John Paxson from 22 feet twice, and a Paxson fast break layup during the run. Paxson would score 10 points in the final 3:54 of the game. It was 105-101 with 56 seconds left but L.A. could not score again. Three free throws by Jordan and Pippen sealed Chicago’s 1st title.

2001 NBA All-Star game - 50th NBA All Star Game An exciting last quarter lead by Allen Iverson, a battle between Kobe Bryant and Stephon Marbury in the last minute, and Kobe in the last play passing the ball to Tim Duncan, when everybody was waiting a shot.

But East show their heart in the last quarter (Iverson 15 points in the last 9 minutes, and Marbury two 3 pointers in the last minute) and overcame the height difference, that had allowed the West team to win 95-74 after 39 minutes of play.

In the second quarter Vince Carter made a 360 (this dunk was better than the others in the Slam Dunk contest the day before) and Ray Allen scored easily. The first half finished 61-50 with a huge 3 pointer by Jason Kidd. Dikembe Mutombo with 22 rebounds was one of the main keys in the East triumph. - added October, 2007

(01-22-06) LA Lakers vs Toronto Rapters - Kobe Bryant scores 81 Points, the 2nd Highest Point Total in an NBA Game Ever!!! What's even more amazing is the fact that he has "only" 26 at the Half, and his Lakers team trails by 14 to the Toronto Raptors, who will be geared to shut him down. But despite that he pumps in an unreal 55 points in the 2nd Half, also 2nd Highest ever in an NBA Game, to lead LA to 122-104 victory. Wilt's 100pts is of course the highest ever recorded, but when you consider that that game was at the end of the year against a last place team, and he was being fed the ball inside to score, as opposed to a middle of the year game that meant something to both teams, well, it's no wonder this performance by Kobe (which when calculated to the pace of Wilt's 1962 performance is the equivalent of 113pts in that era) is being called the single greatest scoring performance ever in the history of the game. If nothing else, it's the greatest ever to be seen to date as no footage of Wilts feat exists, and there were barely 4,000 fans in attendance. Kobe's effort, well, you've got see it to believe it!

(05-??-08) 2008 NBA Finals Game 1 - Los Angeles Lakers vs Boston Celtics - The Paul Pierce Dramatic Injury Game Lakers lead at the Half in Boston, and are for the most part in control in the 3rd when Celtics star Paul Pierce goes down with what looks like a season ending injury. but miraculously he comes back a few minutes later and inspires his team by reentering the game, and then immediately hitting two huge 3pt Shots! LA never regains the games momentum and Boston goes on to take the opening game 98-88. - Added March, 2009

(05-??-08) 2008 NBA Finals Game 2 - Los Angeles Lakers vs Boston Celtics - The Leon Powe Game Bench player Leon Powe (21 points) has a huge night off the bench for Celtics as they build up a 24 point lead with just over seven minutes remaining. But the Lakers fight back to within two points with a minute to go threatening to pull off an epic comeback. But it wasn't to be as they eventually fell 108-102 in Boston to go down two games to none in the Finals as they headed back home. The post game talk centered mostly around the fact that Powe had more foul shots in 14 minutes of play then the entire Los Angeles team had for the game, a fact even more magnified by the fact that the Celtics took 38 foul shots compared to only 10 for the Lakers. Ah, nothing like the "home court advantage". - Added March, 2009

(05-??-08) 2008 NBA Finals Game 3 - Los Angeles Lakers vs Boston Celtics - The Lakers climb back into the Finals with what can be described as none other than an ugly win. Neither team shot well (LA at 43.5%, Boston at an abysmal 34.9%, and each team was UNDER 70% from the charity stripe) but the home town Lakers received a big night from Kobe Bryant (36 points) and a huge effort from Sasha Vujacic (20 points) to take 87-81 victory. For Boston, Ray Allen starred (25 points), but the other two members of the "big 3" struggled as Kevin Garnett (13 points on 6-21 shooting) and Paul Pierce (6 points on 2-14 shooting) just could not find their games. - Added March, 2009

(05-??-08) 2008 NBA Finals Game 4 - Los Angeles Lakers vs Boston Celtics - Greatest Comeback in NBA Finals History!!! The Boston Celtics overcame the largest halftime deficit in Finals history since the institution of the shot clock (1954) to win the game 97-91 in the Lakers house! LA came out smoking in building the largest 1st Quarter lead in Finals History with 35-14 lead. They continued to hold serve taking a 58-40 lead into Halftime. But, as with the first three games of the Finals, Boston won the third. And oh boy did the win it, out scoring the Lakers 31-15 that included a 21-3 run to close out the quarter down by only two at 73-71. In the 4th, the Celtics continued their stifling defense that would be the key to this amazing victory and finally pulled ahead with four minutes remaining and never trailed again. AMAZING! - Added March, 2009

(05-??-08) 2008 NBA Finals Game 5 - Los Angeles Lakers vs Boston Celtics - Lakers extend the Finals with gritty performance The Los Angeles Lakers didn't want to see anyone celebrating a championship on their court if it wasn't themselves, and especially not their hated arch rival Boston Celtics! They kept that from happening with a hard fought 103-98 win at home to send the Finals back to Boston with the Celtics leading 3-2 in games. Similar to Game #4, Los Angeles jumped out to a big lead after one quarter leading 39-22. And just like that game Boston bounced back, quicker this time as they clawed to within two trailing the Lakers by only three at the Half. But for the first time in the Finals LA actually won the 3rd Quarter to take an either point lead into the final stanza, where they withstood a Boston run at the end to take the win. Kobe Bryant (25 points) lead the way for LA, pulling off the game clinching steal on the Celtics Paul Pierce (38 points) in the final seconds. - Added March, 2009

(05-??-08) 2008 NBA Finals Game 6 - Los Angeles Lakers vs Boston Celtics - Largest Finals Clinching Margin in NBA Finals History! The Boston Celtics destroyed the Los Angeles Lakers at home 131-92 to win their 17th NBA Title - Added March, 2009
