This Day in Buffalo Sports History: A Brave step forward


This Day in Buffalo Sports History: A Brave step forward Dec. 4, 1970 -- In the late fall of 1970, the New York Knicks were still the toast of professional Basketball. They were coming off a championship season, and names such as Reed, Frazier and Bradley were well-known in hoop circles.

Meanwhile, most Basketball fans away from Western New York couldn't name more than a couple of members of the Buffalo Braves' roster. The team had been playing for fewer than two months, and hadn't been tearing up the league in its first year.

Which made the result of the game that much more surprising. The Braves stunned the Knicks, 97-91, in Memorial Auditorium. Dick Garrett and Bob Kauffman had 22 points each for Buffalo, while Dave DeBusschere of New York did not score a point. The Braves only won 22 games that season, but this was one of the good ones.
