Here’s the shot chart of Brewer’s big night that shattered his previous season high of 27 points. .
The scoring outburst ties Kevin Durant for the fourth-highest single-game total of the 2013-2014 season. Durant, Brewer, Terrence Ross, Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James have all reached the 50-point mark this season
59 total players have just one 50-point game recorded in their career. Notable names to have only one of these scoring nights? How about Paul Pierce, Amar’e Stoudemire, Glen Rice, Tony Parker, Tim Duncan, Kevin Love and a long, interesting list that goes on and on. Tony Delk and Willie Burton, anyone?
“LeBron, hear about Corey Brewer?” “Nah.” “He scored 51 tonight.” “Wait, who?!”
