Dantley did. Twice.

30.7 on 18.3 FGA and 30.6 on 18.2 FGA in 83 and 84. Durant after tonight is at 29.3 on 18.5.


Any crazy efficiency scoring discussion is going to have Dantley's name in the middle of it.

Which is weird because he sticks out like a sore thumb for having such an overall negative effect.

He has a "scorer" first mindset. I'm sure he wants to shoot the ball in every possession, but the problem is, He's playing with a guy like Westbrook.
Thanks for all the great memories, LeBron! The show must go on! #Heatnation

Impressive from Durant AND Westbrook nonetheless. Shocked that it's only his 2nd 50 point game. Wouldn't be surprised if he gets 50 a few more times this year since his scoring seems to been insanely good.

Because we're not talking about 41 shots for points in the 30's, we're talking about 31 shots for 50's. Even if he did shoot as bad as Kobe, it's not a consistent thing for Durant, Kobe is consistently having horrible shooting nights. Durant is the most, or 2nd most efficient offensive player in the league.

He's actually a little passive at times, he doesn't mind not shooting if they're winning.

Where did the idea come from that Durant is the NBA's "Golden Child"?

If anyone is the Golden Child, it's LeBron. I mean, LeBron didn't have a foul called on him for like 6 games.

Kobe would still get credit for being clutch in OT.

one of the least impressive 50 point games I've ever seen. It was basically one of those vintage Kobe chuckfest type games.

13/31 FGA's and only 1 assist? :cry:

still don't consider them to be good. I just don't. I feel like how the Thunder is built they should blow them out every game but the mavs are always hard for them, weird

You can't expect great teams to blow out everybody they are clearly better than. Just doesn't happen in a long 82 game season. Thunder are still what, 31-8? they are beating these type of teams more than we are.

i dont expect them to blow everyone out but i dont get why just historically speaking they always have problems with the mavs, i think its something to do with their defense and the mavs just knowing how to keep games with okc competitive idk

like i said, the mavs arent good and when they took the heat to overtime i was annoyed too. i just dont think the mavs are good this year (and last) but thats my opinion.

btw as a heat fan, im not even scared of OKC. not sure why but i feel like we have a grasp on how to beat them and should always beat them in a series. But maybe i'm naive...

anyway, on paper the thunder look like a matchup nightmare for the mavs and somehow the games just play out differently

Unimpressive 50 point game...it's almost an oxymoron. He may have not been efficient but he hit two huge shots to seal the game for them.
