The Coo*, who played 42 minutes on the dead run in Boston's lung-straining fast break, collapsed after the game and took no part 1 in the victory celebration. "Russell was fantastic." St. Louis Coach Paul Seymour said. "He kept mem alive in that first half. He gave them life. Thirty- eight rebounds. And then that third quarter. That did it." The third-quarter spurt, in which Boston outscored St. Louis 37-33, gave the Celtics a 13-point lead and apparently put it out of reach. But the Hawks came clawing bade.
