Despite having to compete without the services of their star player, Rick Barry - the ABA's leading scorer (34.0 ppg) and leading free throw shooter (.888) - the Oaks defeated the powerhouse Pacers in an action packed five-game series.The Oaks were led by series MVP Warren Jabali, Larry Brown, and Doug Moe. The Pacers were led by league MVP Mel Daniels, Roger Brown, and Freddie Lewis.The program offered here is from the deciding game of the series when Oakland squeaked by 135-131, led by Jabali's 39. Vertical bend from where the program was clutched at the game. The Oaks didn't produce series specific programs for the finals, so the original owner's notations are actually a plus as they provide the only means of dating.The cover is neatly inscribed "ABA Championship Game" and "5" in vintage black marker on the cover. Interior notations document players who joined the teams later in the season. Intact and unscored. This is a tough one.
