Adam, Aaron and Todd discuss a classic double-overtime game featuring Michael Jordan and Larry Bird - March 31st, 1991 - the Celtics take on the visiting Bulls, at Boston Garden.
We discuss all the key aspects of the game. We talk about the NBC broadcast and its commentary team of Marv Albert, Mike Fratello and Ahmad Rashad. We chat about the great regular season that each team was enjoying, as the Playoffs approached. We talk about each team’s roster and our memories and opinions on this exciting match-up.
