Recalling the Nets' 1984 Win over the 76ers

New, comments

New Jersey had never won a playoff game when it went to Philadelphia in 1984 to face the defending champs with Moses Malone and Julius Erving. The Nets, led by Buck Williams, won all three games in Philly and took the first round match-up. Sports Illustrated calls it the seventh greatest upset in playoff history. Albert King recounts it for Ben Couch, from Stan Albeck's run-and-gun style to Michael Ray's drug problems.
