OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Al Attles made all eight of his field-goal tries for 17 points for the Philadelphia Warriors during Wilt Chamberlain's 100-point game on March 2, 1962. Attles coached Rick Barry the day he scored 64 against Portland on March 26, 1974.
He watched with a smile high above the Oracle Arena floor on Monday night as Klay Thompson scored an NBA season-high and career-best 60 points in three quarters for the Golden State Warriors in a 142-106 win against Indiana - the highest Warriors scoring performance since Barry's.
Not that you will ever find Attles playing favorites when it comes to special games by individual players. Don't even try. He coached the Warriors to their first championship since moving West in 1975, then Golden State won again 40 years later in 2015.
