June 21, 1988: James Worthy records a massive triple-double (36 points, 16 rebounds, 10 assists) at home to help the Lakers beat the Pistons 108-105 in Game 7 of the NBA Finals.
The second straight title for the Lakers was the first back-to-back NBA championship for a team since the Celtics won in 1968 and 1969.
The championship didn't come easy for the aging Lakers, who went all the way to seven games against the Jazz, and then the Mavericks to reach the NBA Finals. Fittingly enough, the Lakers were forced to seven games, before securing the thrilling victory at The Forum.
Coach Pat Riley had guaranteed a repeat championship for the Lakers.
Worthy spent his entire Hall-of-Fame career with the Los Angeles Lakers, winning three championships, and was named Finals MVP.
