On March 2, 1962 against the New York Knicks, Wilt Chamberlain made history. He became the first and only NBA player to score 100 points in a single game while playing for the Philadelphia Warriors. The game was played at the Hershey Sports Arena in Hershey Pennsylvania. That was a magical season for the all-time great as he went on to average an astonishing 50.4 points per game and also had a 78 point outburst earlier that season.The final score of that game was 169-147. That is just insane; it makes the NBA All-Star game look like a defensive struggle. The Knicks even attempted to foul other Warriors in a futile attempt to keep the ball out of Chamberlains hands. In retaliation to that move the Warriors were doing the same to regain the ball. It was an overall insane night of basketball for a league not yet a national favorite. What will always be remembered are Chamberlain and the magical 100 points!
