Alvan Adams 20pts 9reb 5ast
This isn’t even close to being the most impressive game by rookie Alvan Adams in this Finals series. That probably would be the 33 points he scored in Game 3 (you can find highlights of that by searching for “Alvan Adams (33pts) vs. Celtics (1976 Finals)”). That’s how consistent he was with his jump shot and passing. This statline comes from the legendary Game 5, yet Adams didn’t even get the chance to capitalize on the three overtimes as he fouled out in the last minutes of regulation. It’s one of the 1243543 things that could have swung the game the other way. June 4, 1976.
