This Date in Nuggets History: March 15, 1978

Bobby Jones goes perfect from the field


When NBA players find a rhythm, they feel as though they can’t miss.

On a spring night in Denver, Nuggets forward Bobby Jones really didn’t miss.

Jones went 12-for-12 from the field as the Nuggets beat the Golden State Warriors 123-11 at McNichols Arena on March 15, 1978. It was the most attempts with out a miss in Denver franchise history.

Jones finished with 29 points, seven rebounds, three assists and three steals.

The field-goal mark was later matched by former Nuggets big man Nene, who went 12-for-12 against the Utah Jazz on Jan. 25, 2009.
