But he took it off before going on a 41-point scoring surge, breaking the National basketball Association?s all-time single season scoring record of 2,105 set last year by Bob Pettit of St. Louis. The Stilt topped that mark by 29 points as Philadelphia lost 122-113. Chamberlain donned the mask to protect teeth injured in last Sunday’s game. (AP Photo)
