Today's Date in NBA History

(Boulder-CO) Today's date is November 21st, and on this day:
'65- Chick Hearn began his streak of broadcasting consecutive Los Angeles Lakers’ games. The last time Hearn missed a Lakers’ broadcast was November 20, 1965, when he worked a college football game in Arkansas the day before and had his flight canceled. By the end of the 2000-01 season, Hearn had broadcast 3,301 consecutive Lakers games, including preseason and playoff games.

'84- The Boston Celtics sank 55-of-81 field goal attempts for a club-record .679 shooting percentage in a 135-91 rout of Golden State.

'90- Atlanta’s Moses Malone became only the seventh player in NBA history to reach the 25,000-point plateau by scoring 22 points in the Hawks’ 105-93 loss to Milwaukee at the Bradley Center.

'96- With the Los Angeles Clippers’ 105-94 loss at Dallas, Bill Fitch became the first NBA coach to record 1,000 career loses.
'01- The Denver Nuggets called up Chris Andersen of the Fayetteville Patriots, who became the first NBDL player to be called up to the NBA.
Enjoy your day!
