Michael Jordan Drops 63 Points on the Celtics (1986)

On April 20, 1986, a 26-year-old Michael Jordan turned in one of his most legendary performances of all-time as he dropped 63 points on Larry Bird and the stacked Boston Celtics in a double-OT loss.

This Celtics team went onto win the NBA Championship that year but they never forgot the night that a young killer nearly single-handedly defeated them. This was the performance which led to Larry Bird’s famous quote on Jordan, “That was God disguised as Michael Jordan”. Check out the highlights of this historic performance below.
