  • No blocks for Russ, huh?
    I find it hard to believe he’d go a full game without blocking a shot.
    Was that Vancouver Grizzlies stat guy working this game?

  • G4L

    Redsarmys team had a horrible shooting night. That was the differnce.
    Its all going to come down to game 7! & we all know about Bird in big games!

  • Alex

    Russ had no blocks…
    Wow that website doesn’t know what it’s doing. Clearly everything is random.

  • BigMcK

    I guess Russell’s defense is overrated. The computer never lies.

  • Wilbert Wankerstein

    Heinsohn with only 9 shots and Russell with like 16 or something. The system you’re using blows !!
    They did call him Tommy Gun for a reason .
    and Russell with no blocks ??

  • G4L

    Did they record blocks when Russell Played? If not, Maybe thats why. Kind of a Loop hole

  • That’s the problem. They didn’t keep blocks stats back then.
