Post season – 1970-71 – WCF playoffs Date: Fri 04/09/71 - Chamberlain 22 pts, 20 rebs, 1 as, 8 blocks, 10-19 FG/FGA – 3 blocks against Jabbar L -Abdul-Jabbar 32 pts, 22 rebs, 1 as, 1 blocks, 14-30 FG/FGA W Wilt diminishes Kareem's game impact by elevating his own offensive production and diminishing Jabbars efficiency, but he does give up too many rebounds to Jabbar. Call it a draw. Date: Sun 04/11/71 - Chamberlain 26 pts, 22 rebs, 0 as, * blocks, 10-21 FG/FGA - Wilt blocked numerious shots L -Abdul-Jabbar 22 pts, 10 rebs, 4 as, * blocks, 9-19 FG/FGA W Wilt completely erased Kareem's individual impact on the Buck's, he actually took Kareem in the negative. He didn't just diminish Kareem and Increase for himself, he flat out outscored and outrebounded him despite the fact that the Buck's GO TO Kareem to score. Date: Wed 04/14/71 - Chamberlain 24 pts, 24 rebs, 3 as, 3 blocks, 9-19 FG/FGA W -Abdul-Jabbar 20 pts, 19 rebs, 6 as, 0 blocks, 8-16 FG/FGA L Same Result. Wilt individually dominated Kareem. Date: Fri 04/16/71 - Chamberlain 15 pts, 16 rebs, 2 as, * blocks, 7-14 FG/FGA L -Abdul-Jabbar 31 pts, 20 rebs, 5 as, * blocks, 14-20 FG/FGA W Given their duties on the teams, this is the only game Kareem had the upper hand. Date: Fri 04/16/71 - Chamberlain 23 pts, 12 rebs, 4 as, 6 blocks, 10-21 FG/FGA – 5 blocks against Jabbar L -Abdul-Jabbar 20 pts, 15 rebs, 5 as, 3 blocks, 7-23 FG/FGA W Wilt dominated the final match up. They both did not rebound well because Kareem tried to take his game outside (and Wilt get's most of his rebounds defensively not offensively.) Wilt outscored Kareem again, and obliterated Kareem's fg% - he blocked Kareem 5 times.

Video coverage:

Consensus of game 2: Wilt bests Lew... Wilt Devastating

Consensus of game 3: Even Bucks Oscar Robertson commented - "Chamberlain made a big difference"

Recap of the series 3 games in: Veteran Chamberlain has kept the NBA Most Valuable Player Alcindor from dominating the series

Milwaukee's recap of game 5, and the series: Despite the Buck's victory... A massive image of Wilt swatting their MVP is used to showcase the series and it takes up quite a lot of the sports page real estate... Again, this is the Milwaukee Journal - they extended the game description going out of their way to talk about Wilt's performance for two pages.
Part 1:

Part 2:

Kill yourself.
