Nate 32 min 9 pts (2-9 FG, 5-7 FT), 15 rebs, 5 asts

*My estimation based on komwn information about Wilt blocked 70 shots in first 10 games (49 against Bulls and 21 in first 3 meetings with Warriors)

Series averages:

Wilt 45.0 mpg 7 ppg (on 0.611 FG, 0.722 FT), 23.6 rpg, 3.8 apg
Nate 42.2 mpg 15.8 ppg (on 0.373 FG, 0.810 FT), 17.2 rpg, 4.2 apg

Unofficial stats:
Wilt with 27 blocked shots in 4 known games.

Of course it is not "official" but I was actually at game three in that series, and I had Wilt with 11 blocks.

I will never forget...at halftime they had dogs catching frisbees (pretty amazing stuff), and then at the start of the second half, the Lakers went on a tear in the first couple of minutes, and essentailly blew the game wide open. After a quick timeout, a Warrior fan sitting behind me stood up, and yelled, "Bring back the frisbee show!"

As for the series...Wilt outshot Nate from the floor, .611 to .373. And during the regular season, and in their six H2H's, Chamberlain outshot Kareem, .737 to .450. Granted, Chamberlain was not taking many shots, but still, in one H2H game with Kareem that season, he outscored him, 24-21, while outshooting him, 10-14 to 10-27. Oh, and in the first round of the playoffs, Nate and the Warriors shocked the 60-22 Bucks, 4-2, in a series in which Thurmond held KAJ to .428 shooting.
