May 22, 1988. Game 7. Eastern Conference semi-finals.
Larry Bird and Dominique Wilkins engaged in a mano-a-mano battle for the ages. Dominique finished with 47 points on 19-33 shooting. Larry finished with 34 on 15-24 shooting… including the last bucket… a lefty layup after burning Nique in the post.
Final score: Boston 118 – Atlanta 116
An amazing game, and a truly epic battle.
