LARRY BIRD, 1987

VS. DETROIT PISTONS

A defining moment in NBA history. In Game 5, the defending champions Boston Celtics were trailing and almost out of the East Conference Finals. In a famous fashion, Larry Bird stole the ball from Detroit, passed it to Dennis Johnson, who laid it into the net for 108-107 with one second remaining.
