So after the Nuggets beat the Thunder with a buzzer beater last night, it got me thinking. In everyones opinion what was your favorite NBA game ever played?

The 5th game of the First Round in the 1989 NBA Playoffs. May 7th, 1989, Chicago Bulls vs. Cleveland Cavaliers. This game would be the best IMO. Jordan over Ehlo.

Suns and Spurs last year playoffs come to mind...

Any Bird vs Magic...

I can't pick just one.

Too many too name, the Derek Fisher .4 was amazing though, Billups half court shot against NJ in the playoffs to tie, for 2 off the top of my head

Anything Pacers/Knicks from the mid 90's through 2003. Now there were two teams that really HATED each other.

Game 7 of last years playoffs between the Cavs and Celtics was one of the greatest things I've watched. It was absolutely amazing to see what Pierce and James were doing, I at one point was ready to accept a loss just based on what Lebron was doing.

That thing went back and forth more than I can remember, It was just an amazing game to watch for any fan.

Also I loved the Warriors-Mavs playoff series a couple years back, I enjoy watching teams who play in ridiculously loud arenas, the emotion of the players is priceless.

SuperSonics 116, Nuggets 168 (No Overtime BTW)

168 points in the Modern NBA game is simply amazing.


Also:
Dec. 13, 1983
186 Pistons, 184 Nuggets (3OT)

My favorites

Game 5 Bulls vs Cavs 1989. Everything on the line, if the shot is made we make the next round, if the shot is missed we lose the round.

Game 7 Spurs vs Mavericks 2006 - Everything on the line game goes into OT

Game 7 Bulls vs Pacers in 1998 - Everything on the line once more.

Rockets vs Suns Game 7 1995 - Game goes down to the wire and Houston wins 115-114
