Clip of the Day: Dominique drops 54 points on Boston

If you all you know about Dominique Wilkins are his dunk contest titles and a shootout with Larry Bird, you’re missing out. In this game from February 1987, a full year before the famous ’88 playoff duel with Bird, ‘Nique drops 54 points on Larry’s crew.

    HaHa check out the cameo by my boy Kevin Willis. Didn’t know he commanded double teams like that. Just know him from being the oldest player in the NBA at one point.

    Until I discovered the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, my locker was covered with Nique posters. Man was he explosive.

    Nique was more than just a dunker..Dude was a str8 scorer also. Not too many ppl could stop him back then. He could bascially go str8 to the hole at will.

    you dont score 25,000 pts just dunking the ball, sons. dude was legit.

    and homage to the past Atlanta Hawks. they were at the top of the East standing when they traded Wilkins for Danny Manning and parts. The franchise hasnt been the same since. that was a BS move if I ever saw one. Danny Manning, are you kidding me? Manning was aight, but for Dominique? someone was on crazy ass membrane diffusing dope on this one.
