1988 was an incredible year for Michael Jordan. He won his first MVP, Defensive Player of the year, All Star MVP, the Slam Dunk Contest, his second straight scoring title and led the Bulls to 50 wins. But at that time the best team in the East was still Larry Bird's Boston Celtics.

The Celtics won this game. Bird had 44 points to Jordan's 39. Jordan got his revenge 3 days later though in a Bulls victory over the Celtics. Jordan had 46 points and the Bulls won 50 games for the first time in a season.

I've done something a little different this time. Instead of just showing Jordan's highlights, I've shown Birds as well because this was a classic shoot out.
