Two games into the final season of the Bill Russell Dynasty, the Celtics visited the Chicago Stadium and left with a 106-96 victory. Russell fouled out after scoring five points. As usual, his presence in the paint was most notable; he brought down 17 rebounds.

Larry Siegfried led the scoring with 26 points, Bailey Howell had 24 points, John Havlicek had 20 and Tom Sanders had 18.

The Bulls suffered their first loss in three games under coach Dick Motta. Or, as the Associated Press reported his name, Dick Motto.

The Celts would be at the Garden the following Wednesday night against the Cincinnati Royals. As noted in a paid ad, plenty of seats were available at $5, $4, $3 and $2.
