Today's Date in NBA History

(Boulder-CO) Today's date is April 10th, and on this day:
'86- In a game against New Jersey, Atlanta’s Dominique Wilkins made 21 field goals, scoring a total of 57 points in the Hawks’ 126-117 victory. Wilkins won the NBA scoring title during that 1985-86 season, finishing with a 30.3 ppg average, edging Utah’s Adrian Dantley and Denver’s Alex English.

'91- Dallas guard Derek Harper scored a game-high 34 points in the Mavericks’ 97-91 loss to the Jazz at the Salt Palace, becoming the first player in NBA history to improve his scoring average in each of his first eight seasons in the league, as he averaged 19.7 ppg.

'99- The Chicago Bulls lost 82-49 to the Miami Heat. The 49 points by Chicago are the fewest points scored by an NBA team since the introduction of the shot clock prior to the 1954-55 season. Chicago’s 18 field goals made is also an NBA record-low.

'02- The Greenville Groove defeated the North Charleston Lowgators 76-68 at the North Charleston Coliseum to win the 2002 NBDL Finals.
Enjoy your day!
