Take a trip down memory lane as we share a crazy moment at the podium, an amazing posterization, an absolute on-court fail or a memorable shooting performance from the postseason of the National Basketball Association in This Day in NBA Playoffs History.
During Game 4 of the 1984 NBA Finals, Magic Johnson was incredible...for 47 minutes. Forget the fact that Johnson put up a ridiculous triple-double with 20 points, 11 rebounds and 17 assists, in that very last minute, Earvin committed a costly turnover, helping the Boston Celtics come back from a five-point deficit. And if that wasn't bad enough, Magic missed back-to-back free throws with the game tied and only 34 seconds remaining in overtime. Thanks to "Tragic Johnson," Boston thwarted a 3-1 series lead for the Lakers and eventually defeated the Lake Show in seven games.
