Celtics Top Pistons in 6th Straight Win

Feb. 3, 1963 - Sam Jones (pictured) with 35 points and rookie John Havlicek with 26 sparked a surge today that gave the Boston Celtics a 137-128 victory — their 6th straight win over the Detroit Pistons. Boston led 71-59 at the half, mainly on the strength of Havlicek’s 16 points in the second quarter. But Detroit, paced by Don Ohl and Ray Scott, hit 15 of 24 shots in a sizzling third period for a 102-101 lead. Celtics star Tommy Heinsohn did not dress because of shingles.
