      ...(Calvin Booth) of the Sonics had the strangest line of the night, and one of the weirdest I've ever seen:

      17 min, 2 pts, 0 reb, 1 PF, 10 blocks.

      This from a guy whose averages are:

      19 min, 5.7 pts, 4.8 reb, 2.4 PF, 1.8 blk

      Perhaps Manute Bol had a game of as many as 10 blocks, in as few as 17 minutes.  The ratio of 10/1 blk/foul is also extreme.

      actually a truly - and incredibly - rare performance by booth. i went back a decade and looked at all of the players who had blocked 10 or more shots in a game and the closest anyone came to this in terms of blocking 10+ shots in the fewest minutes was shawn bradley (njn) blocking 10 shots in 25 minutes against dal 11-23-1996...

      what's more i ran over 30,000 computer simulated games for the 03-04 seattle supersonics against their 03-04 schedule with booth slotted to play only 16 min/g in each and every game (except those he should have happened to have fouled out of in just 16 minutes or less) to see how many games would have to be played to duplicate his effort and the most shots he blocked in a single computer simulated game was 9. this year in real life he was blocking (up unto this game) 5.6 shots per 100 opponent FGA...

      since 1993-94 a player has blocked 10 or more shots in a single only 32 times - out of 22,524 total games. that means a game of 10+ blocks by a single player occurs only once per 704 contests, and here booth did it in less minutes than anyone had in a decade (maybe longer - i don't know for sure)...

      here's who's blocked 10+ shots in a game for the last decade:
