This Day in 1962, Wilt Chamberlain Scored 100 Points Against the Knicks

Wilt Chamberlain was bigger than basketball. He couldn’t be contained. He still holds the record for most points in a game. He had his 100-point game in 1962, in Hershey, Pennsylvania, where his Philadelphia Warriors took on the New York Knicks for a 169 to 147 win.

That game was 53 years ago. That record has stood for 53 years. In 2006, Kobe Bryant came the closest to breaking it, with an 81-point game. But otherwise,

Wilt Chamberlain still stands a giant in basketball history.
