Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (29pts/12rebs/8asts/4blks) vs. Nuggets (1985 Playoffs)

Kareem’s statline may not seem that impressive, but consider this – only 17 players have repeated it since Jabbar did this in 1985. The Denver Nuggets couldn’t stop the determined Kareem during this game. He either made the sky-hook over shorter defenders in Wayne Cooper, Dan Issel and Danny Schayes or passed out the double team. Kareem’s great performance resulted in a close 4-point victory and a 3-1 lead in the Western Conference Finals. May 19, 1985.
