Replaying the 1st regular season game in ABA history with POTG Basketball.

In addition to the 3 point shot the ABA had what in my opinion is the greatest piece of game equipment in sports history, that Red, White, and Blue ball !

October 13, 1967
(Friday the 13th)

Anaheim Amigos @ Oakland Oaks

Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Arena

The players who appeared in the actual game were used, based on the boxscore at Basketball Reference. Anaheim used 11 players so I sat Harry Dinnel, who will get credit in the POTG scorebook for his real life total of 0 points. The actual game was a 134-129 victory for the hometown Oaks but that wasn't the case in the replay. The Amigos weren't very friendly to their hosts from Oakland, drubbing the Oaks by a 137-117 score. Anaheim had 7 players score in double figures, led by Stephen Chubin with 25, and Ben Warley with 20. The Oaks, who had 5 players score in double digits, were paced by Levern Tart who led all scorers with 37, while Ronald Franz netted 21. The Oaks were hurt by a lack of production from James Hadnot in the #2 spot, who could only manage 7 points from 4 Scoring Rolls, and Steve Jones, who had 2 Scoring Rolls but only totaled 1 point, with that point coming from a Defensive Adjustment.

Both teams finished the 1967-68 season with poor records, Anaheim at 25-53, and Oakland a league worst, 22-56.

The Amigos turned into the Los Angeles Stars before eventually becoming the Utah Stars.

The Oaks went from worst to first as they won 60 games in the 1968-69 season, best in the league, and also won the ABA playoffs. They then spent a season as the Washington Capitols before becoming the Virginia Squires.
