Havlicek Stole The Ball – Game 7, 1965 Eastern Conference Finals

“Havlicek stole the ball! Havlicek stole the ball!” It’s the famous call from Boston Celtics announcer Johnny Most highlighting the moment when Boston guard John Havlicek intercepted an in-bounds pass from Philadelphia’s Hal Greer to preserve a Celtics victory over the 76ers in Game 7 of the 1965 Eastern Conference Finals. Even if it was before your time, a true basketball fan knows exactly how this black-and-white grainy footage looks and how Most's passionate call of the play still rings off today.
