It erupted willi the Knicks leading 114-95 and reserves jlaying out the closing minutes. Luther Rackley, New York's second-string centre, had just lost the hall lo Boston's Art Wil- liams before the scuttle started in the Celtics' forecourt. Wil- liams attempted to get off a shol, when the frustrated Rack- ley apparently tlirew an elbow at him, which Williams said he didn't see. Tlie other guy (Williams' team-mate. Steve Kulierski) thought rtacklcy hit me." KNICK POUNDED Hacklcy and Kuberski started flailing each oilier, ami tlie Boston forward e v e n t u a 11 y wound up pounding his Knick opponent wilii a series of punches. When referees Mcndy Ru- dolph nnd Jake O'Donneil, 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- toy followed Kuberski inlo (lie fioslon dressing room, hut an- other outhrcak was prevented. Earlier, Ileinsohn had been upset when Boston's John Havli- cek fired a shot from near mid- court just hcfoi-c the half-time huzzer. As the hall was on ils downward flight, New York's Phil Jackson appeared to grab the net, which would have meant an automatic goal-tend- ing call and (wo poinls for the Cellies. Eut neither Rudolph nor O'Donneil penalized Jackson or the Knicks. Earl (The Pearl) Monroe paced the Knicks with 26 points, while Dave DeBusschere iiad 23 points and a game-high IB re- bounds. Havlicek was for the Celtics with 27 points and Jo Jo White scored 23. IK the NBA Western Confer- ence finals, Los Angeles Lakers, leading the series 3-2, play Mil- ii't'uikee Bucks this afternoon.

Even if we do whip the trousers off the Russians next fall we won't be defeating the world champions. I don't tliink we'll let that bother us if we can once and for all set tlie records straight as lo who is the hockey power in Hie world. The news that Canada would, after so many years ol frustration, he allowed to ice its hest hock- ey team in a series ol games against the Russians excites me lo no end. Possibly now we will show them who is boss. have to. They have nothing to lose and everything in the world to gain. If I had one wish for the eight-game series he- tween Canada and Russia it would be that Gordie Howe and .lean liclivcan be in the line-up.

Tlie task at hand Is to soundly thump the liussians 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.
