Feb. 13, 1963 - The Los Angeles Lakers, all but run off the court in the opening minutes, turned loose their “B&B” attack and blasted the Celtics, 134-128, with an incredible comeback in Boston tonight. Before a roaring crowd of 12,686 fans, Bob Cousy and his mates ran up a 30-13 lead before the Lakers knew what was going on. Then, Dick Barnett and Elgin Baylor went to work. When their night’s work was done, the two sharpshooters had 88 points. Baylor, playing every minute, had 50 of them. But it was the brilliant play of Jim Krebs that finally turned the tide. The big center controlled the boards and hit several key baskets as Los Angeles wiped out an 11-point lead in the last 7 minutes.
