'93- In a special two-hour ceremony celebrating his storied playing career, Larry Bird’s #33 Celtics jersey was retired at sold-out Boston Garden.

'96- Denver, behind 32 points from Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf, knocked off visiting Chicago 105-99, snapping the Bulls' franchise-record 18-game winning streak, tying for the third-longest winning streak in NBA history.
