Wilt's final line for the game
Minutes - 47
Points - 24
Rebounds - 29
Assists - 8
Blocks - 8
I have watched this game a number of times on NBA.TV. What is even more amazing about Wilt's performance in that game was that his right hand were taped because of injury and he had a very difficult time holding the ball in just his right hand.
Despite playing with only one good hand he definitely stepped up big time to lead the Lakers to the 1971-72 NBA title at the Forum. Interestingly enough the Forum was the sight of the 1972 NBA All-Star game.
Was Wilt's performance in game #5 of the 1971-72 Finals the greatest one game performance ever in a NBA Finals game?
If not who had it and what was the date of that game?
