Playoff highlights

Bird's most famous playoff moment is his steal of Isiah Thomas' inbounds pass against Detroit in Game 5 of the 1987 Eastern Conference Finals, and it really highlighted everything he brought to the table come playoff time. His incredible focus and ability to see the play before it happened allowed him to make seemingly impossible plays, and he was also an extraordinarily gifted passer who was always willing to share with his teammates with the game on the line.

That's not to say he was shy about shooting the ball, though; his famous duels with the Lakers, Sixers, and Dominique Wilkins in Game 7 of the 1988 Eastern Conference Semifinals showed just how deadly he could be when he got going.
