Maravich Nets 68 Points
On Feb. 25, 1977, “Pistol” Pete Maravich, while playing for the New Orleans Jazz, scores a career-high 68 points against the New York Knicks, giving him the eighth-highest single game score total in history to that point.
Maravich was a good playing in the NBA, but basketball critics never thought he amounted to the player he was in college at LSU, however Maravich had a 24.2 point per game average in the NBA.
Though Maravich was known for his no-look passes and crazy shot attempts, the 68-point game was the highlight of his pro-career.
