Sixers playoff flashback: Ending Boston Celtics’ run, advancing to 1967 NBA Finals


Article Summary:

During those eight consecutive title years, Russell appeared in 100 postseason games and averaged 18.3 points and 26.4 rebounds.

Sam Jones also played in 100 playoff games during that string of eight straight titles and averaged 19.5 points in those games.

The Sixers had lost to the Celtics in the Eastern Conference finals in each of the two previous seasons, falling in seven games in 1964-65 and in five games in 1965-66.

In the ’67 clincher, the Sixers had five players score 20 or more points, led by Hall of Famer Hal Greer, who had 32 points.

Jackson scored 29 points and added 18 rebounds for the Sixers while Chamberlain had another triple-double: 20 points, 29 rebounds, and 10 assists

So the Celtics had life, but the Sixers won Game 5 by the biggest margin all series.
