With the concussion awareness we have today, it's highly unlikely Larry Bird would ever be allowed to re-enter the game under those circumstances--just an unbelievable clutch performance by Larry Legend.

Also, this video from Slam Magazine doesn't do justice to how ridiculous Chuck Person was in that series.  Bird's heroics never would've been necessary if it weren't for Person's lights-out shooting.  There isn't much video evidence available on YouTube, but here are some clips from Game 2:

Unfinished Business: May 6, 1991: Larry Legend Powers Celts past Pacers
Unfinished Business: May 7, 1991- A Bird in Hand...
Unfinished Business: May 13, 1991- Driven Despite Delicate Odds
