Luther Rackley, New York's econd-string centre, had just ost the ball to Boston's Art Wil- ams before the scuffle started n the Celtics' forecourt. Wil- ams attempted to get off a hot, when the frustrated Rack- ey apparently llircw an elbow t him, which Williams said he .idn't see. "The other guy (Williams' e a m -in a t e Steve Kuberski) bought Racklcy hit me." {NICK POUNDED Hackley and Kuberski started flailing each other, and the Joston forward eventually round, up pounding his Knick opponent with a series of punches. When referees Mendy Ru- dolph and Jake O'Donncll, with the help of Garden police, had restored order, Kuberski and Rackley were ejected. But their disagreement apparently was not over. The still-furious Rack- tey followed Kuberski into the Boston dressing room, hut an- other outbreak was prevented. Earlier, Heinsohn had been upset when Boston's John Havli- cek fired a shot from near mid- court just before the half-time buzzer. As the ball was on its downward flight, New York's Phil Jackson appeared to grab the net, which would have meant an automatic goal-tend- ing call and two points for the Celtics. But neither Rudolph nor O'Donnell penalized Jackson or the Knicks. Earl (The Pearl) Monroe paced the Knicks with 26 points, while Dave DeBusschere had 23 points and a game-high 10 re- bounds. Havlicek was high for the Celtics with 27 points and Jo Jo White scored 23. In the NBA Western Confer- ence finals, Los Angeles Lakers, leading the series 3-2, play Mil- waukee Bucks this afternoon. ISN'T it just our luck. Even if we do whip the trousers off Ihe Russians next fall we won't he defeating the world champions. 1 don't think we'll let that bother us if we can once and for all set the records straight as to who is the hockey power in the world. The news that Canada would, after so many years of frustration, be allowed to ice its hest hock- ey team in a series games against the Russians excites me to no end. Possihly now we will show them who is boss. We have to. They have nothing to lose and everything in the world to gain. If I had one wish for the eight-game series be- tween Canada and Russia it would be that Gordie Howe and Jean Beliveau be in the line-up. It won't happen hut it is a thought. After all these two men did a great deal for our National sport the past two decades. going to do it Ali said: "The last time Enough sentimentality. The task at hand Is to soundly thump the Russians and prove once and for all Canadian hockey is still the best the world over. I'm not saying the Russians don't play excellent hockey. Their progress in the last 15 years has been in leaps and bounds proportions. Still, we pride our-, selves in our players and we can now prove our Just thinking about a line-up of Hie 20 best Na- tional Hockey League players facing off against the Russians thrills me. How's this for a starter? In goal, Ken Dryden of the Montreal Canadiens solidly backed by Ed Gia- comin of the Rangers or Tony Esposito of the Black Hawks. What about a defence of Bobby Orr of Boston, Brad Park of New York, a healthy Serge Savard of Montreal and Chicago's Pat Stapleton? The forwards would be too long to mention what with the Mahovlich's, the Hull's, Gilbert Perrault, Vic Hadfield and Rod Gilbert. The list is endless. These are just a few. Selecting 20 players out of NHL would be as difficult a task as trying to choose between Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin as to who is the best singer. The cifht-ganie series will be divided into two with the first four games in Canada and the last four in Russia. A poll players in the NHL would indicate a majority of the players will play if askect. But not for patriotism. "We love the game of hockey and consider our- selves the said Red Berenson. "We just want to show the world who is tops." We, the Canadian people, will have to wait until September for the confrontations but I wish it were right now.
