Pete Maravich 68-point Game Re-Aired

Fox Sports New Orleans to re-air New Orleans Jazz legend Pete Maravich's 68-point performance against the New York Knicks

May 12, 2020

NEW ORLEANS – The New Orleans Pelicans and FOX Sports New Orleans today announced the re-broadcast of the February 25, 1977 matchup between the New Orleans Jazz and the New York Knicks, airing tomorrow night at 7:00 p.m. as part of FOX Sports New Orleans’ encore programming.

In front of a sold-out crowd at the Louisiana Superdome, ‘Pistol’ Pete Maravich scored a career-best 68 points against a Knicks team that featured five Hall of Famers including Bill Bradley, Walt Frazier, Bob McAdoo, Earl Monroe, and Phil Jackson.

Maravich appeared in 330 career regular-season games for the Jazz from 1974-79. A five-time NBA All-Star and four-time All-NBA selection, he was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1987. Prior his professional career, Maravich starred at LSU where he was a unanimous three-time All-American and the 1970 College Player of the Year, and holds the NCAA record for career points (3,667) and points per game (44.2).

Additionally, FOX Sports New Orleans will air a New Orleans Jazz Classic TV pregame show at 6:30 p.m., during which Pelicans play-by-play man Joel Meyers will preview the contest and interview a number of the game’s participants including McAdoo, Maravich’s Jazz teammate Jim McElroy, and Jazz official scorer and New Orleans basketball historian Bob Remy.
