14. The Memorial Day Massacre

Date: 5/27/1985

You know it's bad when one of the greatest centers of all time apologizes to his team after the game. 148-114. That's all you really need to know about the Memorial Day Massacre. During Game 1 of the 1985 NBA Finals, the Celtics put up video game numbers in large part to Scott Wedman going 11 for 11 from the field, Kevin McHale dropping 26, and Robert Parish holding Kareem to just 12 points and three boards. The Lakers would rebound and go on to win the series 4-2 but the Memorial Day Massacre still stands as the widest margin of victory in the Lakers-Celtics rivalry.
