1989: Alex English 51pts 10ast vs Miami Heat
If you are into horror films then you should check out the new anthology film VHS. If you are just into VHS quality video, hoop history and unappreciated basketball greats then I have the perfect video for you: Presenting Alex English’s monster game of 51 & 10. Basketball-reference says he had 9 boards but LamarMatic, who owns the game, says 10 and how can you say somebody with a first name of Lamar could ever be wrong about something unless it was picking 1 out of a group of hot sisters.
Under Doug Moe’s run and gun system, English went 24 for 35 from the field and only attempted 4 free throws!
ALEX THE GREAT
If this is your first exposure to English then apologies for showing you a past his prime English; He still averaged 27 points for the season but in the late 80s, his 30 point outbursts were usually followed by a 15 point or less game. If you want to be exposed to some footage of Alex in his prime, then check out the following “HD” mix.
