Hawks -vs- Celtics 1988 Playoffs

As the NBA playoffs get underway, I was reminded of a classic head-to-head duel between Dominique Wilkins and Larry Bird in the 1988 East semifinals. The two super-stars put their respective teams on their backs and counter punched each other with one great play after another. Wilkins scored 47 spectacular points, but the Celtics prevailed when Bird scored 20 of his 34 points in the fourth quarter. The final score in this epic game 7 was 118-116.
