Timofey Mozgov will no longer be known as the guy who got dunked on so bad by Blake Griffin that his last name became a term (got mozgov’d) for dunking. Mozgov will now be known as the center with the most dominating performance since Wilt Chamberlain scored 100.
Last night, Mozgov went off on the Warriors, grabbing a NBA season-high 29 rebounds to go with his…93 POINTS!
Obviously the screenshot above was a typo and he didn’t really put up the Wilt-stat line but he did have a career night and one of the most impressive 20/20 games in recent memory with 23 points, 29 rebounds and 3 blocks. The 23 tied his previous career-high and the 29 boards were a career high. He also made 10-of-15 shots and two of those five misses were 3-pointers.
If Timofey would have put together a 93 & 29 game, here’s how it would have stacked up against Wilt’s insane games from 1961-62.
