On this day in 1966, the Oakland Coliseum Arena hosted its first NBA game as the Chicago Bulls came into town to play the Warriors. Although it was fully rebuilt in 1996/1997, the arena is technically the oldest facility in use by the NBA.
The Bulls won the game 108-101. Rick Barry, coming off his Rookie of the Year season, led the warriors with 40 points. This Warriors team made the NBA FInals but ultimately lost to the Philadelphia 76ers, 4-2.
