Thought I would post a few results from some random games I've played recently with the 1976-77 set for Real Life Basketball Classic.

San Antonio 26 33 32 27 108
Philadelphia 32 32 24 25 113


I chose this to match up two of the best forwards in the league that year, Julius Erving and George "Iceman" Gervin. Both had solid games, but the day belonged to the 76ers' George McGinnis. McGinnis poured in a game-high 32 points to lead the Sixers to victory. Doug Collins had a great game as well, putting up 26 for the winners. The Spurs had 6 players in double figures, led by Larry Kenon with 25. Gervin finished with a pedestrian 17 points while his counterpart, Dr. J., finished similarly with 15.

Detroit 38 27 20 21 106
Chicago 32 25 40 27 124


This was intended to be a matchup of big men - Bob Lanier for Detroit vs. Artis Gilmore for Chicago. Both had very good games, with Lanier finishing with 24 points to Gilmore's 18. However, Lanier scored 18 of his 24 in the first half before Gilmore picked up his defensive play. Artis had three blocked shots and held Lanier to 6 points in the second half, as the Bulls clamped down on the Pistons' offense and ran away with the game in the third quarter. Chicago's Mickey Johnson was unstoppable, finishing with 34 points to lead all scorers. For Detroit, M.L. Carr contributed 20 in a losing effort.

Denver 14 27 29 24 94
Golden St 32 20 26 38 116


The Warriors got off to a fast start and held off a third-quarter surge from the Nuggets to win going away in the 4th quarter. Denver managed only 2 field goals in the 1st quarter but managed to claw their way back to within 4 in the 3rd quarter behind a 28-point effort from David Thompson. But, despite foul trouble for star forward Rick Barry, Golden State never relinquished their lead thanks to 29 points from Phil Smith and a 20-point contribution from silky smooth Jamaal Wilkes.

Bill,

Good stuff. I plan to pull out some teams from the '77/78 season and see what happens.

Thanks, Matt. Post your results, if you get a chance. I'll look forward to reading them. Besides, this forum has been a little moribund lately and it could use more posts.

This morning's action from 1976-77:

Cleveland 27 22 13 31 93
Seattle 19 17 30 16 80


This game was less a defensive battle than it was an offensive struggle. Neither team could generate a lot of offense, as they missed open shot after open shot and could not execute on the fast break. After dominating the game in the first half, the Cavaliers fell into an offensive stupor in the 3rd quarter and allowed the Supersonics to take the lead, much to the delight of the home fans in Seattle. However, Seattle's lead was short-lived, as Campy Russell and Jim Brewer put the Cavs on their collective back and ran away with the game in the 4th. Russell ended as the game's high scorer with 18 points, followed by Austin Carr with 15. Brewer scored 8 of his 14 points in that crucial 4th quarter.

For Seattle, Slick Watts led the team scoring with a paltry 13 points. Bruce Seals and Nick Weatherspoon contributed 12 each.
