Watch: Nelson’s Fortunate Bounce
Date: May 5, 1969
Watch Don Nelson heave a shot toward the goal with time running out against the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 7 of the 1969 NBA Finals. Nelson’s shot, which bounced high into the air off the back of the rim before sinking through the net, sealed another NBA World Championship title for the Celtics.
