Legendary Lakers/Celtics Game 7s: 1969, when the balloons never dropped but Don Nelson's shot did

This is awesome, mostly because of the fantastic background music, the kind of tune usually reserved for 1970s porn movies. Not that we have seen any of those, it’s just what we were told. Moving on.

We talked about this legendary game yesterday. The highlights don’t get into the balloons hanging from the rafters, but you do get to see Don Nelson’s lucky-bounce game winner.  And a great Sam Jones finger roll. That is worth every penny.
