Matchup: Game 2 NBA Finals, Lakers @ Celtics
Goat: James Worthy
Career years: 1981-94
Career stats: 979 G, 19.2 PPG, 3.6 RPG, 9.3 APG, 1.9 SPG, 0.3 BPG
The Lakers were up 1-0 in Boston with a two-point lead and chance to take a 2-0 lead back to L.A. James Worthy made the mistake of throwing a cross-court pass. Gerald Henderson intercepted the pass and tied the game with a layup. The game went to overtime, the Lakers lost, and would go on to lose the series. He was certainly not Big Game James during that series.
Worthy would rebound helping the Lakers win three championships, taking home the MVP award for the 1988 NBA Finals. Worthy retired in '94 and still works as a broadcaster for the Lakers local pre-game show broadcasts.
