Box :

June 8, 1989 – Los Angeles Lakers point guard Magic Johnson had pushed his team to a two-point third quarter lead in Game 2 of the 1989 NBA Finals before a left hamstring injury ended his evening and season pre-maturely. Despite Johnson’s 18 points and nine assists, the Lakers would go on to fall to the Detroit Pistons 108-105. Johnson played five ineffective minutes in Game 3 before stepping out for the remainder of the series, culminating in a four-game sweep at the hands of the Pistons.
