The top sports moments to happen within the city itself, including neutral-site matchups such as college bowl games, super bowls, NCAA Tournaments, etc.

In one of the most famous finishes in NBA history, Boston's all-time leading scorer came up big on defense. The Celtics were clinging to a one-point lead in Game 7 of the Finals, but Wilt Chamberlain and the Philadelphia 76ers threatened to end Boston's dynasty. In the waning seconds, John Havlicek snuck in front of Philly's Chet Walker, intercepting the inbounds pass from Hall of Fame guard Hal Greer. The play sealed the series for the Celtics, and longtime Boston announcer Johnny Most's radio call -- "Havlicek Stole the Ball!" -- is one of the most well-known in basketball history. The C's went on to win their seventh consecutive NBA championship.
