when the talking heads talk about Russell they always talk about all of his Championships and sometimes mention the year he and his Celts lost to Wilt's 6ers

I've never ever heard them talk aboout the other year Russ and his Celts lost - to the '58 St. Louis Hawks, and the truly great yet all but completely forgotten Bob Pettit

in the 6th and final game of the series Pettit destroyed the Celts with 50 points and 25 rebounds

old school Pettit was as tough as nails - he played part of the '57 season with a fractured wrist and a cast on his left arm

1968 Elvin Hayes and Houston vs. Lew Alcindor (Jabbar) and UCLA - one of the greatest college games ever -

before the game Hayes ran his mouth that he was better than Alcindor, and Houston won and Hayes outplayed Alcindor

but Alcindor was playing with an injured eye and an eye patch - after the game Hayes minimized Alcindor's injury

many years later nobody would ever say that Elvin Hayes was greater than Jabbar - although Elvin was truly great

this cbs news story (linked) is the only place I could find actual footage of the game itself - blurry - but still fun
