Great Celtics playoff performances
How good was Cowens in this memorable playoff performance? The Celtics forward outscored Kareem Abdul-Jabbar , putting up 28 points and 14 rebounds as the Celtics clinched their first championship in five years. In foul trouble in the fourth quarter and with the Bucks trailing by three, Cowens remained in the game and led the Celtics on an 8-0 run and an 11-0 run as Boston clinched the game down the stretch.
