Fox Sports NOLA to broadcast Jazz-Knicks - Pistol Pete's 68 point game

2 posts in this topic

Here's a chance to watch a bit of NOLA hoops history.  Fox Sports New Orleans is going to rebroadcast the Jazz-Knicks game from the 70s when Pistol Pete Maravich scored 68 points.  A chance to watch vintage New Orleans basketball played in the Superdome.

Man, this is cool, despite the poor video quality in black and white.

I remember this game, though I was not there. I do remember listening on the radio and then reading the Picayune articles and box score the next morning.

Watching it brings back so many memories of Jazz games. It’s a Knicks broadcast but you can hear the PA announcer every time he scores yell “Piiiiistooollll Pete!”

Seeing the old Superdome in basketball configuration and watching guys like Aaron James and Pete Maravich and Coach Elgin Baylor was a lot of fun and reminded me of a great part of my childhood.
