Sadly, the strategy of 'defense' had not yet been established in those times. I mean really. Pitiful defense. Like, Golden Gopher basketball-like defense.

I think the scores in NBA games 30 years ago were higher because there was no 3 point line, not inferior defenses. Shooting percentages have likely gone down with the 3 point line since there's less chance of making a shot from downtown.

100 points is impressive, but I'll tell you whast I am even more impressed with: 28 of 32 free throws from a guy who made barely 50% of them over his career, and the 20,000 other "scores" he claims.
