George Mikan Sets Scoring Mark Against the New York Knicks

In recent decades, we’ve seen some astronomical individual scoring outbursts in the NBA.  Even back in the early 1960s, Wilt Chamberlain scored 100 points and Elgin Baylor 71 in a single game.  Back in 1949, playing for the Minneapolis Lakers against the New York Knicks, George Mikan set the NBA single-game scoring mark with a 48-point night.  Mikan once came to Schenectady  along with other great players like Al Cervi and Goose Tatum, and they played at the Armory on Washington Avenue across from the Van Curler Hotel in downtown Schenectady in front of more than 4,000 fans.
