Today's Date in NBA History

(Boulder-CO) Today's date is February24th, and on this day:
'67- Wilt Chamberlain of Philadelphia shot 18-for-18 from the field against the Baltimore Bullets, an NBA record for field goals in a game without a miss.

'78- Kevin Porter of the New Jersey Nets handed out 29 assists in a 126-112 win over Houston, an NBA record that lasted more than a dozen years, until Orlando’s Scott Skiles collected 30 assists against Denver on December 30, 1990.

'98- Houston's Hakeem Olajuwon became the eighth player in NBA history to play 1,000 or more games with the same team. John Stockton is the all-time leader, having played in more than 1,300 games for the Utah Jazz.
Enjoy your day!
