Recap[edit]

After suffering a heartbreaking loss to the Celtics in Game 7 of the 1957 NBA Finals, St. Louis survived a sometimes difficult 1957-58 NBA season, returning to the NBA Finals to face the Celtics again. The teams split the first two games and were tied 49-49 in the third game when the series' decisive play occurred. Bill Russell soared high to block a shot by Bob Pettit, landed heavily on his right ankle and collapsed in a heap on the floor with a severe sprain. He missed the next 2 games. Boston won just one more game, the fourth, as the Hawks prevailed with a six-game series victory that gave them their first and (to date) only NBA championship.

The sixth game was vindication for Bob Pettit. Before a cheering, stomping crowd of 10,218 in St. Louis, Pettit scored 19 1st half points as the Hawks took a 57-52 lead into the halftime intermission. Six straight points by Pettit pushed the Hawks' margin to 10 in the third quarter before the Celtics sparked by Bob Cousy's playmaking, cut the margin back to six, 83-77. A Boston spurt in the opening moments of the final period gave the Celts an 86-84 lead.

With a little more than 20 seconds to play, Pettit drove on Russell, stopped and arched a shot over the Celtic captain for the basket that gave the Hawks a 108-105 lead.Tom Heinsohn made two foul shots with 16 second left to cut it to 108-107. With the Boston defense converging on Pettit, Slater Martin tried a set shot that missed, but Pettit somehow fought his way through the mob of Celtics around him to tap the ball in and make a final Celtic field goal meaningless. Pettit had scored 50 points, including 18 of the Hawks' final 21 points propelling the Hawks' to the 1958 NBA Championship.
