You know the type, loud as a motorbike: Danny Ainge silences Mario Elie

Game 3, Western Conference Semi-Finals
May 13, 1994

Danny Ainge doesn't forget.

In response to some encouraging words from Mario Elie earlier in the game,  former Toronto Blue Jay Danny Ainge fired the ball at Elie's head from near point blank range during the game's closing moments.
This years marks the twentieth anniversary of this retaliatory act.

Elie was in no fit state to go after Ainge after this head shot.

There is also a very important Chris Jent sighting in the top left corner. It's probably more important than the whole Ainge-Elie exchange.

For record, NBA Championships as a player:
Ainge - 2
Elie - 3
