Description
Title supplied by cataloger.
Photograph caption dated April 29, 1982 reads, "Magic did it all last night at the Forum, including setting injured. However he rebounded from a momentary but scary knee problem." Here Dennis Johnson (right) of the Phoenix Suns tries to prevent Magic Johnson from scoring during the second of four Western Conference Semifinal games between the Lakers and the Suns. The Lakers won the semifinal games and went on to both the Western Conference Finals and NBA Finals, ultimately winning the 1981-1982 season championship title.
