(1987) Manute Bol 2pts 12rebs 8blks (in 1st half) vs Hawks
Today’s flashback takes us to a game in 1987 featuring the human highlight film Dominique Wilkins & the late Manute Bol.
On the night before this game, Bol had 8 blocks against the Pacers and with Moses Malone out, Bol was given as many minutes as he could play – as long as he stayed out of foul trouble. Despite foul trouble against the Hawks, Bol still managed 2 points, 12 rebounds and 8 blocks (all in the first half) vs Nique and Willis’ high flying team.
The Bullets lost but rebounded 2 nights later with a win over the Celtics. Bol had 6 points, 17 rebounds and 12 blocks in that game. You are probably assuming that was his best performance of the season but earlier in the year he had 10 points, 19 rebounds and 15 blocks in a game.
