Heinsohn Jumps to a Career High
During a game in the early 1960s, Tommy Heinsohn reached for a jump ball over Dolph Schayes of the Syracuse Nationals. On Christmas Day 1961, Heinsohn scored a career-high 45 points against the Nationals. After the magical Christmas Day performance, Heinsohn helped the Celtics take home the NBA World Championship title later that season, his fifth of eight titles as a Boston player.
