NBA 1968 Final: Celtics chorus can handle West’s genius

In the 1968 NBA, the Lakers and the Celtics offered us a new final between them, in the end with a victory for the Greens (4-2). The series was tied at 2-2, but from there on the Boston took a hard-fought and far-sighted fifth game. In the sixth game the Celtic victory was more convincing.
