“At the end of one of the trips, he had accomplished every goal, we hadn’t lost a game

on the trip, and Larry told all of us players and the media too, we were all standing around waiting to leave, he said, ‘Tomorrow night’s the last game of the trip, I’m going to play this one left-handed, at least through three quarters” – Bill Walton

With his left hand Bird still scored 47 points, grabbed 14 rebounds and dished out 11 assists (21-34 FG). Bird hit every three-pointer he took. For good measure, he hit the game-tying shot to send the game to OT and then made the game-winning shot.

“I’m saving my right hand for the Lakers.” – Larry Bird
