Wilt Chamberlain Scored 42 Points In The 1962 NBA All-Star Game, An Over 50-Year Old Record

Let’s wrap up this year’s look at the NBA All-Star Game with the all-time single-game statistical records, two of which were broken in yesterday’s explosive 163-155 Eastern Conference win.

Carmelo Anthony nailed eight three-pointers, the new top mark from long distance, on the way to 30 points for the East. Meanwhile, Blake Griffin sunk 19 field goals – two more than Michael Jordan, Wilt Chamberlain and Kevin Garnett.

No player has ever played a full All-Star Game from start-to-finish. Forty-two minutes is the all-time record, held by four NBAers from the 1960s.

Exactly 14 players have fouled out.

What about the career leaders? In case you missed it, Sports List of the Day covered that yesterday.
