Hoops Links: Pistons, Lyons, Mills

March 2 at 5:52pm CST By Zach Links

On this date in 1962, Wilt Chamberlain of the Philadelphia Warriors scored 100 points, the most ever by an NBA player in a single game, during his team’s 169-147 win over the Knicks in Hershey, Pennsylvania.  Chamberlain shot 36-of-63 from the field and 28-of-32 from the free throw line, to go with 25 rebounds.  His 50.4 PPG scoring average in 80 games during the 1961-62 season remains an NBA record to this day and it’s hard to imagine it ever being broken.
