In Game 6 Chamberlain scored 45 points and almost single-handedly equalized the series in a 135–113 Lakers win and with Reed out the Knicks seemed doomed prior to Game 7 in New York. The Panthers comfortably won the Public League title after again beating Northeast in which Chamberlain scored 40 points and later won the city title by defeating South Catholic 74–50.
