Today's Date in NBA History

(Boulder-CO) Today's date is March 16th, and on this day:
'88- Utah center Mark Eaton blocked six shots, including the 2,000th of his career, in the Jazz 120-105 victory over Dallas.

'91- New Jersey Coach Bill Fitch earned his 800th career victory, as the Nets beat Washington 110-86 at the Meadowlands. Fitch became only the fourth coach (along with Red Auerbach, Jack Ramsay and Dick Motta) in NBA history at the time to win that many games.

'00- The Los Angeles Lakers’ 19-game winning streak ends with a 109-102 loss to Washington. The streak ranked third at the time in NBA history.
Enjoy your day!
