"Kobe Bryant and Smush Parker combined for 94 points"

Actually, I don't think any newspapers ran that summary of the Lakers game last night in which Bryant scored 81, the second highest total in NBA history. But I wanted to bring up the (possibly apocryphal) log line, "Wilt Chamberlain and Al Attles combined for 117 points" that one newspaper supposedly printed because they were dumbfounded by how to describe Chamberlain's 100 point game in 1962.
