(1990) Tom Chambers scored a franchise high 60 points vs the Sonics
On this day in history, March 24th 1990, Tom Chambers scored a Suns’ franchise record 60 points against his old team – the Seattle Supersonics.
Chambers scored 21 of the Suns’ 29 first quarter points and then the first 18 for the team in the 2nd quarter. At half-time he had a team record 15 field goals and 35 points.
“That’s what we expect from Tom every night,” said Suns guard Kevin Johnson. “When he gets his game going like that, it’s impossible to stop him.”
For those thinking this was a fluke game, in the previous month, Chambers scored 56 against the Warriors and had back to back 40 points games (44 + 41). I also forgot to mention that he was playing with a pulled hamstring in this game: 60 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 blocks, 1 steal (22-32 fg, 16-18 ft)
DUNK ON MARK JACKSON
But nobody really cares to read about how underrated Tom Chambers was. They just want to see a replay of his monster dunk on Mark Jackson, so here it is.
