Getting One Over Wilt the Stilt

Date: 12/12/1971

As we've seen before in the playoffs, size ain't that much of a factor if you got the skills. Wilt Chamberlain was about seven inches taller than Maravich, but the guard still found a way to get this layup over him. It wasn't like Pistol Pete was in perfect position to do so either; he had to stretch those legs to make the layup. Plus, the ball floated as if to tease the swat-happy Chamberlain. So tall, but still barely missed it. Two points for Maravich.
