Think about it this way. In the 9-year span from 1961 through 1969, there were 35 performances of 60+ points - 1 by Jerry West, 2 by Elgin Baylor, and 33 by Chamberlain. In the entire remaining history of the league, there have only been 29 more such performances by any other players. Talk about a truly dominant career!

But holy cow, 100 points in one game? I wonder if his team was giving him the ball every time just to make that happen.

actually his team scored somewhere around 160 that game. and it wasn't a complete blow out. same with kobe getting his 81, his team needed it, that was a comeback win.

As a Celtics fan, I must say that Devin Booker's 70 weren't that impressive, considering the entire game was garbage time.

level 58
Feb 1, 2018
Let me rephrase what I said: Devin Booker's 70 points was the LEAST IMPRESSIVE 70-point game in NBA history, for three reasons: 1. Avery Bradley, the Celtics' #1 defender (at the time), did not play. He would have been guarding Devin Booker. 2. The Celtics were winning by around 30 points throughout the entire game, so they did not concern themselves with how many points Devin Booker was scoring. 3. At the end of the game, the Suns repeatedly intentionally fouled the Celtics, just so they could get the ball back and add to Booker's point total. Remember that I am a Celtics fan, and my "saltiness" is meant to be perceived with a layer of humor.
