Corey Brewer had the game of his life as the Minnesota Timberwolves knocked off the Houston Rockets. The former Florida Gator poured in 51 points in the team’s 112-110 win, matching Kevin Love’s franchise record for points. He also added six steals, which puts him in an elite category of players to have at least 50 points and six steals: Michael Jordan (3 times), Allen Iverson and Rick Barry.
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.
Speaking of LeBron, he had a pretty great response to hearing about Brewer’s career night.
“LeBron, hear about Corey Brewer?” “Nah.” “He scored 51 tonight.” “Wait, who?!”
