On this date in NBA history, March 24th of 1990, Tom Chambers scored a Phoenix Suns’ franchise-record 60 points against his former team, the Seattle Supersonics. The former 4 x NBA All-Star 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 franchise-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 point games (44 & 41). I also forgot to mention that he was playing with a pulled hamstring when he put up 60 points (22-32 FG, 16-18 FG), 6 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 blocks and 1 steal.
