- 1965 - Five members of the Boston Celtics score 20 or more points in a 129-123 victory over Los Angeles in Game 2 of the NBA Finals.

- 1991 - Moses Malone played in his 1,046th (finished with 1,207) consecutive game without fouling out (started after last fouling out on January 6, 1978) breaking Wilt Chamberlain's record as the Hawks lost to the Pistons 126-120.
- 1992 - Detroit’s Dennis Rodman wins his first NBA rebounding title with 1,530 rebounds for an 18.7 RPG average. Those are the highest rebounding marks in the league since the Lakers’ Wilt Chamberlain pulled down 1,572 boards for a 19.2 RPG average during the 1971-72 season. Rodman’s total of 1,530 rebounds represents 42.1% of the Pistons’ total of 3,631 boards, which is the top individual percentage in NBA history. Rodman would go on to lead the NBA in rebounding for seven consecutive seasons, an NBA record.

Robinson averages 23.2 PPG (7th); 12.2 RPG (4th); 55.1% field goal percentage (7th); 2.32 SPG (5th); and 4.49 BPG (1st).
