Magic has words with Boston's Danny Ainge, as Larry Bird tries to hold Magic back during Game 1 of the NBA Finals on May 27, 1985, at Boston Garden. The Lakers were on the wrong end of a 148-114 score in a game forever known as the Memorial Day Massacre. But the Lakers rebounded from that game and won four of the next five to win their third NBA championship in six years. It was also the first time the Lakers beat the Celtics in the finals after eight series losses.
