Today's Date in NBA History
(Boulder-CO) Today's date is November 19th, and on this day:
'77- The New Orleans Jazz set a then NBA record for fewest free throws made in a game--one. Despite 17 fouls by Houston, the Jazz went to the foul line only five times and made just one, yet still managed to defeat the Rockets 103-101. On January 9, 1996, the Toronto Raptors did not make a single free throw in a loss to the Charlotte Hornets, erasing the Jazz’s record of one free throw.
'83- Kareem Abdul-Jabbar of the Los Angeles Lakers became the second player in NBA history to score 30,000 points, joining Wilt Chamberlain at that plateau, as the Lakers won 117-110 at Portland.
Enjoy your day!
