We might have broken a few brains when we revealed that the Boston Celtics beat the Washington Senators (or rather a trio of representatives from each team) once on a sports-themed game show hailing from the early 1970s, but the Celtics seemed to turn everything they touched to gold back in those days.

It wasn’t the only appearance for Boston on the show — called “Sports Challenge” — either. Within a year of the win by Bill Russell, John Havlicek, and Red Auerbach, another trio of Celtics made an appearance on the show. Auerbach returned with champion Celtics Bob Cousy and Bill Sharman to face off against three stars of the then recently-relocated Atlanta (previously of Milwaukee) Braves MLB team, though we won’t give away the ending this time for the curious among you.

Watch the clip for yourself to see how the Celtics did their second time on the show courtesy of the CLNS Media YouTube channel “NBA History and Legends on CLNS”.
