Today's Date in NBA History

(Boulder-CO) Today's date is April 28th, and on this day:
'66- Red Auerbach retired as Boston’s coach after guiding the Celtics to a 95-93 triumph over the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 7 of the NBA Finals. Auerbach coached Boston to nine NBA Championships--including eight straight titles from 1959-66--more than any other coach.

'79- Oscar Robertson became the first Milwaukee Buck to be inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame. Robertson, who helped the Bucks to the franchise’s only NBA title in 1971, finished his career with 26,710 points and 9,887 assists.

'90- The Boston Celtics set an NBA single-game Playoff scoring record in beating the New York Knicks 157-128 in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference First Round series. The Celtics shot .670 from the field (63-of-94 FG attempts), setting another playoff mark.
Enjoy your day!
