In this episode of NBA Flashback, we go back to March 12, 1985 and relive the night the Larry Bird scored a career-high and Boston Celtics-record 60 points in a win against the Atlanta Hawks. We talk with Bird’s long-time teammate, Robert Parish, about what motivated Larry that night, Bird calling his shots, his never-ending trash talk and even the Hawks’ players cheering on Bird from their bench.
