There aren?t many NBA players who can score 63 points in a game, yet alone a playoff game against one of the NBA?s greatest teams, the ?86 Boston Celtics. On April 20, 1986, Michael Jordan in his sophomore season blossomed in the Boston Garden tallying 63 points, five rebounds, and six assists. 26 years later, we still look at this historical game in awe, as Jordan took his game to new heights in the white/varsity red-black Air Jordan 1.
