1960 – In a 150-106 victory over the Detroit Pistons at the Boston Garden, the Boston Celtics set the record for the most rebounds in a single game in NBA history. Led by Bill Russell’s 29 boards, the Celtics totaled 112 as a team. No team in the last few decades has recorded more than 80 rebounds in a game. In the second quarter, referee Sid Borgia ejected Red Auerbach after the Celtics head coach grabbed him by the arm to pull him in front of the cameras. Auerbach thought Borgia was making unnecessary calls just to get on television.
