Elvin Hayes 43pts 13reb 1ast
The last 40-point game Elvin Hayes ever recorded. Yet judging just by this clip you would have figured that the 34-year-old had plenty of those left in him. Thing is that there wasn’t much one could do if the jumper was falling for The Big E. Like, he’s dropping fade-away bankers over you. Close out too aggressively, and he finishes at the rim. Terrific performance which must have had a pretty darn good field goal percentage, I might add. March 16, 1980.
