48. Magic Sets Finals Record with 21 Assists

Date: 6/3/1984

The 1984 NBA Finals aren't remembered with much fondness in Hollywood. The Lakers lost to their hated Boston rivals in a grueling seven game series riddled with miscues that ultimately led to Magic Johnson's unfortunate (albeit temporary) nickname, "Tragic." But let's remember the good times. Particularly Game 3, in which L.A. handed the Celtics their worst playoff defeat in franchise history, 137-104 at The Forum, highlighted by Magic's record-breaking 21-assist triple double performance.
