NBA TV is showing the best basketball game in NBA history - Phoenix v Boston - 1976 Game 5 Finals.

If you haven't seen it - it's nothing you have ever seen before.

Multiple OTs, big brawl

I'm pretty familiar with that game DRob! And you're right, that game went through some overtimes. The thing I remember is that brawl (no need to call it a fight) between Kevin Stacom of the Celtics and Ricky Sobers of the Suns. I remember that matchup between the two with Stacom getting away with a fair amount of cheap fouls on Sobers. Finally Sobers decided he had enough and here comes the action. If I recall others got involved when those players tried to break it up. And Sobers absolutely got the better end of the exchange. And it went for a while too! Both players got tossed (not sure if anyone else did) but played game #6, which Boston won to take the title.

Thanks for the "heads up" on this, I'm going to have to pay attention to the schedule a tad closer, though I'm sure NBA-TV will show it again at some point.
