Which classic NBA game to choose?

Right, so my social team has a bye this week and we've decided to get together and watch a classic NBA game over a few beers and some pizza.

We're looking for suggestions of epic NBA games whose torrents should be out there on the interwebs ready to be downloaded and consumed.

So far I've come up:

- Kobe's 81 points
- 2002 Lakers Kings game 6 (I've never seen this game)
- Original dream team in action (not sure how easy this would be to find)

Can anyone suggest a classic NBA game we should be watching? And what are the best sites to find torrents of NBA games?

Thanks hoopsters.

Mavs V Suns from 2007 - Double OT Thriller, one of my all time favs!

Rockets V Knicks - Game 6 1994 NBA finals - Absolute classic, albeit low scoring.

The Knicks 1994 suggestion above is heart breaking.

Knicks/Pacers finals series from 1993. Reggie Miller starring as the Super-Villan.

With Patrick Ewing fluffing the easiest of layups to give NY the series win.

billo, I only recently got into the whole torrent thing myself - I just clicked on one of the first links in google (called Where Amazing Downloads Happen) and the amount of classic games there was crazy - they have the original 92 Dream Team vs Croatia - and even a few Boomers games too, def worth checking out!

I have tons of classic NBA games on DVD, many that can not be found on the net. I have a site listing everything I have.

86 conference final I think

Boston v Atlanta "the duel"

Wilkins goes for 48 and bird has 20 in the last quarter.

I'd go the 92 All Star Game.

Magic's rookie year, 1980 Finals vs Philly. Game 6 he scored 42, 15reb, 7ass & 3 steals won the championship away from home and won the Finals MVP. I've never seen the whole game but would love to if anyone has it?

That Knicks game is also heart breaking.

Game 6, 2003 West Conf finals. Spurs v Dallas. Spurs come back from 20+ down in the third when Steve Kerr (37 years old) drills 4 straight 3's. Stephen Jackson also goes 5/5.

Awesome game.

Knicks Pacers games in the 90s at Madison Square Garden is where it's at!!!

Also any games where the Pistons beat up on the bulls before the bulls started to do it back from 91 onwards.

For regular season games, id love to see the Pistons-Nuggets game that was the highest scoring in NBA history.

I watched the isiah thomas 16 pts in 94 seconds game the other day and it wasn't as good as i thought it'd be, most of the 16 pts were free throws and they didn't end up winning anyway.

Thanks for the tips all, we ended up going with Dream Team gold medal game and Kobe's 81 point haul.

These suggested games will keep me warm during the lockout!

Correction to my earlier post: Indy won that series, but it was a great series.

Apparently you can buy a 6-disc DVD set of the Bulls Triple Crown from 96-98. Apparently it has the best games from all 3 seasons and the majority of the finals series from each year.

Infact, on the subject; I'm very disappointed at the lack of BBall DVD's available in stores; most places I go have an area for them, but have only 1-2 DVD's there, usually the stupid Lakers history collection :(

Big Marty - why would a store stock anything when you can buy on-line for less than their wholesale price?

I have the video of Wilkins and Bird game 7 of the 86 Eastern finals. Before the game Larry said he would guarantee the win. Up until the last qtr Bird was having a sub par performance.... and then Nique and bird go at it, point for point, Bird has 20 in the last qtr for the win. Brilliant game
