I learned two things from watching game 5 of the 1972 NBA Finals on YouTube:
- Jump balls determined possessions at the beginning of every quarter.
- Wilt shot his free throws from 18 feet not 15.
The Lakers center had 22 pts, 24 rebs, 8 blks and 4 ast….while playing with a broken right wrist. LA closed out the Knicks 114-100 and Wilt was the Finals MVP.
