Bob Pettit – 13

A classic! This short turnaround hook on a rebounded missed shot by Lennie Wilkens puts Bob Pettit over the 20,000 point mark in a November 1964 contest against the Royals at the Cincinnati Gardens. He becomes the first player in NBA history to achieve the mark and the game was stopped to honor that distinction. Pettit was given a standing ovation by the capacity crowd, most of whom had attended the game in hopes of seeing Bob make basketball history.
