On This day in NBA History... Nov 8

November 8, 1978
The Philadelphia 76ers and the New Jersey Nets began a game where the final 17:50 of the contest was replayed on March 23, 1979, due to a protest being upheld. Harvey Catchings and Ralph Simpson played for the 76ers and Eric Money and Al Skinner played for the Nets when the game began, but were traded to the opposing teams by the time the game was resumed. It's the only time in the history of professional sports that any player played for both teams in the same game.

November 8, 1992
After losing 43 consecutive road games against the Los Angeles Lakers, the Sacramento Kings finally snapped the streak with a 124-114 victory behind 29 points from Mitch Richmond. The Kings had last won at the Great Western Forum on October 20, 1974, when they were based in Kansas City-Omaha.

November 8, 1994
Cleveland became the second NBA team to open a new arena during the 1994-95 season, as 20,562 fans filed into the Gund Arena to watch the defending NBA Champion Houston Rockets shade the Cavaliers 100-98.

November 8, 1994
Detroit’s Joe Dumars tied the NBA record (held by Brian Shaw) for most three-point field goals in a single game by hitting 10-of-18 attempts from behind the arc and finishing with a game-high 40 points in the Pistons’ 126-112 win over visiting Minnesota. Dennis Scott of the Orlando Magic set a new NBA record when he made 11 three-pointers against Atlanta on April 18, 1996.

November 8, 1999
The Philadelphia 76ers paid tribute to the recently deceased Wilt Chamberlain when they hosted the Seattle SuperSonics. The 76ers observed a moment of silence in Wilt's memory, showed a video highlight from Wilt's 100-point game in 1962 and enlisted Teddy Pendergrass to perform the national anthem.

Win or lose this is a game -
You could let it pick your brain for weeks and months, just replay it over and over, won't do you any good at all. When someone loses a loved one and they do that it only brings forth anguish. I feel acceptance is sometimes the key, it happened, now you have to react to it. Giving up is not an option.
