Jamaal Wilkes (25pts) vs. Spurs (1983 Playoffs)

There was some pondering I had to do about the creation of this highlight reel. Is it really necessary? There’s already footage of Jamaal “Silk” Wilkes out there. He’s pretty well known. Moreover, the baskets he made in this game are rather simple.

Then it got to me. That’s why this footage is so beautiful. Wilkes knows exactly how to run the fast break and use the baseline screens set for him. The simpleness of his 25 points are the reasons for both his and the Lakers brilliance. May 15, 1983.
