May 26, 1987 – Detroit Pistons guard Vinnie Johnson came alive in the second half of Game 5 of the 1987 Eastern Conference Finals, powering in 20 points while taking his team to the precipice of a key victory over the Boston Celtics. Alas, the lead that Johnson secured with a touch over two minutes remaining would not last, as Larry Bird would soon snatch the game out of Detroit’s grasp with a last second steal and assist to a streaking Dennis Johnson (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H_RJ5XN8TK8).

The Pistons bounced back to win Game 6 at the Pontiac Silverdome, forcing a Game 7 back at the Boston Garden, where the Celtics eliminated Detroit with a 117-114 victory.
