The "Havlicek with the steal" pass was intended for Chet Walker.

I listened to that game in the driveway on my Dad's car radio. I was able to get stations on the car radio that I couldn't get on my own radio. At night, the Boston radio station had a surprisingly clear channel into the Midwest. Faint, but you could still hear it. As a kid, I worshiped Russell and the Celtics. So, as you might imagine, my heart was in my throat at this point.

Catch the statue of Red and his "victory cigar".

"Over the years, I have pushed myself mentally, and I have pushed myself physically. A lot of people say, 'John Havlicek never gets tired.' Well, I get tired. It's just a matter of pushing myself. I say to myself, 'He's as tired as I am. Who's going to win this mental battle?' It's just a matter of mental toughness."-John Havlicek
