Damian Lillard and Anthony Davis join the list.  Davis is the first player since Chris Webber in 2001 to have 50 points and 20 rebounds in a game.

Saw in an oddly specific fact that Davis is the youngest player to have a 59-point game.

Some old dude had 60 points last night.  I hear he also retired immediately following the game.  Not a bad way to go out.

That was an annoying stretch where Kobe was trying to score 50 in every game.

Alex English will go down as one of the most under appreciated players of all time

No, Alex got his props back in the day..... he was a hell of a scorer.

Klay Thompson with the first 60 point game of the year.

And he did it only 29 minutes. The previous most points in a game in fewer than 30 minutes played was Larry Bird in 1986 scoring 43.

Also, as I pointed out on the Kings forum I post at, Cousins became the first King since Tiny Archibald, in '72 against the Rockets, to actually go for 50 in a win:

Devin Booker goes for 70 tonight at Boston, and since the Suns are so awesome, they never led in the game and were down by as many as 26 points.  Booker is the third player in NBA history to score 70 or more points in a loss, joining Wilt (who did it three times) and David Thompson.

Lou Williams dropped 50 points for the Clippers on Warriors tonight. Not most random 50 point game but maybe most randomly impressive?

Most random will probably always be Willie Burton or Corey Brewer.

The only player to go for 50 off the bench was Nick Anderson back in 1993.  Lou actually started last night, although he's known more for being a 6th man

I think the other incredible thing with Klay's performance is he only played 27 minutes.

Big weekend as Kemba posts the first 60-point game this season and LeBron puts up the Lakers' first 50 post-Kobe.

Also read that this is the first time there has been more than 3 50-point games in a year by the end of November.  LeBron’s was the sixth.

I'm not surprised since defense is a dirty word in the NBA these days.

James Harden with 54 last night in Washington.  Combined with Eric Gordon's 36, it's the second-most points ever scored by a starting backcourt, and combined with Wall and Beal's 68, is the most ever scored by both starting backcourts in a game.

BTW, the highest-scoring single game starting backcourt ever?  Kobe and Smush Parker with a combined 94 points.  Smush had 13.

Make it 8 now as Durant goes for 51 in Toronto.  I falsely stated in chat that this was his second one this year, but he "only" had 49 the other night.  And interestingly, three of the last four (including Durant's) have come in OT losses.

LaMarcus Aldridge becomes the third first-timer this season, going for 56 last night in double OT against the Thunder.  As pointed out by Slim in the monthly thread, he is the third-oldest player to score 50 for the first time, and it is also the first 50-point game by a Spur in over 10 years.
