|Apr-24-17|| ||tamar: 9.1 don't short change Matty|
|Apr-24-17|| ||saffuna: Tiny was Westbrook 1.0?
But that's what Cousy wanted.
|Apr-24-17|| ||unferth: found one, if you count 79-80 as the 70s.|
|Apr-24-17|| ||keypusher: Lots of people seem to have taken a shot, so my candidates are Pete Maravich and Lou Hudson on the '72-'73 Hawks.|
|Apr-24-17|| ||unferth: but Lou pretty clearly wasn't a guard that year, with Maravich & Herm Gilliam both playing full-time starters' minutes.|
|Apr-24-17|| ||keypusher: <unferth: but Lou pretty clearly wasn't a guard that year, with Maravich & Herm Gilliam both playing full-time starters' minutes.>|
Right. That's the issue with them, I guess.
|Apr-24-17|| ||tamar: Who was it then? World B Free?|
|Apr-24-17|| ||unferth: I got these guys:
WBF & Freeman Williams were at 48.8 that year:
|Apr-24-17|| ||HeMateMe: Oh, my apologies. I was referring to the Kansas City Kings' Nate Archibald (34 ppg) 72-73 and Jimmy Walker [not to be confused with 'JJ' from Good Times] (19 ppg), except that Walker was down a little in '72-73. He got his 19 ppg the year before.|
So, maybe it's just West and Goodrich, though maybe George Gervin/Iverson did it one year with competent wingmen or perhaps the GS pair Curry and Thompson have averaged 50 ppg together?
|Apr-24-17|| ||plang: Being a sports fan means never having to say you are sorry|
|Apr-24-17|| ||unferth: Curry & Thompson were at 52.2 last year. Lillard & McCollum hit 50.0 on the nose this season; DeRozan & Lowry were at 49.7. the three-point revolution must've made it a whole lot easier.|
|Apr-24-17|| ||tamar: No problem HHM. I learned that Jimmy Walker fathered Jalen Rose.|
|Apr-24-17|| ||saffuna: If your team was playing the Hawks in the 60s, you might think "Wilkens is running circles around us," "That Bridges is too tough," or "Does Joe Caldwell ever come down after he jumps?"|
Then you'd look at the box score and see Hudson with 25 points or whatever, and you didn't even notice it.
|Apr-24-17|| ||saffuna: Three-pointer or no three-pointer, 50 is a lot for just two players to average.|
|Apr-24-17|| ||saffuna: Highest scoring duo ever (no position limitation) must be Wilt and Paul Arizin on the 62 Warriors, 72 points a game.|
Baylor and West averaged 69 in 1962, but Baylor only played half the season due to military service. He played only weekend games.
|Apr-24-17|| ||Bobsterman3000: I would've guessed maybe David Thompson + someone for that 50-pt backcourt but his highest scoring teammate was forward/center Dan Issel and they only combined for around 48 ppg at best.|
|Apr-24-17|| ||HeMateMe: Thompson was a small forward. 70s and 80s nuggets scored a lot, but I think it was balanced. kiki vandegwe, Fat Lever, a bunch of shooters on those teams. The Lakers would beat them 132-128.|
|Apr-24-17|| ||WannaBe: Wow, this is like a baseball team firing the bench coach, or first base coach.|
Chicago 'Hawks have fired assistant coach after losing their last 8 games of season (4 in a first round sweep to #8 seed, see my previous post/comment)
Maybe they should fire the Zamboni driver, or the PA announcer next...
|Apr-25-17|| ||saffuna: Warrios went 17-29 on threes in game four. Were they wide open or just hitting tough shots? Curry 7-11, 12-20 overall.|
|Apr-25-17|| ||HeMateMe: bad luck for steve kerr. never heard of such a light guy having serious, chronic back problems. Guys his size and weight usually get out of sports without having to later get artificial knees or hips.|
|Apr-25-17|| ||plang: With 2:15 to go in the 1st quarter the score was|
Trail Blazers 13
not good for TV ratings
|Apr-25-17|| ||HeMateMe: they had better not get complacent.
2016: Warriors 3, Cavaliers 1...
|Apr-25-17|| ||plang: yea, well 4-0 is a little tougher to come back from|
|Apr-25-17|| ||HeMateMe: yes, but you know what I mean. Last year the Warriors thought they were just a <little> too pretty, were gonna shimmy their way to the Larry Obrien cup in a cake walk. A funny thing happened--LeBron happened.|
|Apr-25-17|| ||WannaBe: I say, give her a wild card entry...
