Elbows to the face are the key to rebounding

Mr. Triple Double uncovered a fabulous video from 1991. Tommy Heinsohn and Bob Cousy are handling the play-by-play and color analysis for the Celtics and Pistons. Detroit, especially Dennis Rodman, is killing the Celtics on the boards.

Here are some classic lines:

Tommy: You gotta put an elbow in his face, Couz.

Tommy: I hope we have a replay of that rebound. Bird had two elbows in his neck.

Cousy: You know what we used to say, if you're over 6-6 you're no rocket scientist. How tall are you by the way?

Tommy: I'm only 6-2…

Simply hilarious.
