Description

33-year-old Larry Bird with his 2nd career 40-point triple double. Bird had 69 triple-doubles in his career, but a 40-point triple double is something else. Only 8 players have done it in modern NBA game (1980-2012) - Bird had three of them in his unbelievable career (47-12-11 vs Portland in '86, 40-11-10 vs Sonics in '89 and 49-14-12 vs Portland in '92). This is the only one I have never seen on YouTube, so here it is. 40 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists on 17/27 FG. This guy is a true legend of the game. Celtics won this one 109:97. http://www.basketball-reference.com/boxscores/198912130BOS.html
