One Man’s Take: Top 50 One-Game Finals Performances
Posted by Zach Lowe on Jun 11, 2010
The man is John Hollinger, and the take is limited to the 1977 Finals and beyond for reasons Hollinger explains here, so don’t look for any Russell/Heinsohn/Jones/Cousy appearances.
The Lakers and Michael Jordan dominate the list. By my count, 28 of the 50 spots go to either Jordan or a member of the Lakers, including 14 of the top 20 all-time games.
Four individual Celtics games—and three individual Celtics—make the list.
Whoever can name all four games without looking gets a cookie. Honor code, folks.
