NBA Greatest Duos: Larry Bird & Kevin McHale vs Pistons (1985)

Another great game from 85/86 Boston Celtics team, and this one is an all-time classic. A lot of hard fouls from young ”Bad Boys” and one nice little fight between Dennis Johnson and Bill Laimbeer. Bird and McHale were at their best in this one.

Larry Bird: 29 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists.

Kevin McHale: 28 points, 11 rebounds, 4 blocks.

Golden age of NBA basketball with greatest passing team in basketball history playing against crazy young team. It doesn’t get much better than this in sports.

Celtics won the game 124:105.
