Here's a little more info on Sam Jones from Game 7's website:
Sam Jones played on 10 NBA championship teams and was named as one of the 50 Greatest Players in NBA History. Jones had a perfect 9-0 record in Game 7s. He averaged 27.1 points in those elimination games, including a Game 7-record 47 points in the 1963 East Finals.
"Sam Jones has a champion's heart. On the court he always had something in reserve. You think he’d been squeezed of his last drop of strength and cunning, but if you looked closely, you’d see him coming up with something else he’d tucked away out of sight. His presence gave me comfort in key games. Under pressure, we had hidden on our team a class superstar of the highest caliber. In the seventh game of a championship series, I'll take Sam over any player who’s ever walked on a court." -Bill Russell
