Today is the 50th anniversary of Wilt Chamberlain’s 100-point game. And although Chamberlain’s accomplishment is impressive, to say the least, Wilt was far from perfect when the Philadelphia Warriors defeated the New York Knicks 169-147 on March 2, 1962, at Hershey, Pa.

Chamberlain shot 36 of 63 from the field and 28 of 32 from the free-throw line.

Chamberlain teammate Al Attles, though, who would go on to coach the Golden State Warriors to their only NBA championship in 1975, was perfect on March 2, 1962.

Attles was 8 for 8 from the field and 1 for 1 from the line, giving him an unsullied 17 points.
