29 years before (in 1986) Michael Jordan scored 63 points in playoff game (game 2 first round) against one of the greatest team of the history of the game : the Celtics ….and in Boston Garden !!!
Larry Bird and his team were pushed in double OT in a game who Jordan became legendary.
The 63 points still even today the record of points scored in a single playoff game.
After that game Larry Bird said : “He is the most exciting, awesome player in the game today. I think it’s just God disguised as Michael Jordan.”
