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.
