Welcome to Throwback Thursday here on the All Ball Blog. Each week, we’ll delve into the NBA’s photo archives and uncover a topic and some great images from way back when. Hit us up here if you have suggestions for a future TBT on All Ball. Suggestions are always welcome!
Yesterday was the 20th anniversary of a game between the Utah Jazz and Detroit Pistons where Adrian Dantley and John Drew of the Jazz both scored more than 40 points to help Utah defeat Detroit 143-125 on March 19, 1984.
This marked the ninth time in NBA history teammates each scored 40 or more points in a game. Since then, four other teammates accomplished the feat.
This Throwback Thursday, we honor the twelve teammates who achieved this extremely rare accomplishment.
