Larry Bird (39pts/10rebs/6asts) vs. Mark Aguirre (38pts)
Larry Bird’s Celtics go up against the high-scoring Dallas Mavericks team, which could be the second best in Mavs history behind the 2010-11 one. Rolando Blackman, Derek Harper and Roy Tarpley all have decent performances, but Mark Aguirre just lights up the C’s. Aguirre has a great 3rd quarter by scoring 17 points and getting the Mavericks a solid lead for the last quarter, however Larry Legend saves his best for the last minutes and clinches the game with a game winning three pointer. February 12, 1988.
