The Most Obscure Players to Score 50 Pts Or More in an NBA Game

50 Point Scorers

Scoring 50 points in a basketball game is a tremendous feat.  Notice I just said basketball game.  I remember scoring 33 when I was on Junior Varsity in High School.  It felt like I scored 100 points.  And I was still 17 points away.    So imagine not only scoring 50 points in one game, but 50 in an NBA game.

Sometimes I find myself laughing when I say an NBA player sucks.  I mean the dude is 1000 times better than I’ll ever be.  And I know I’m just referring to his NBA skill vs. other NBA player skills.  Still though, it’s weird.

In any event, I’d like to give credit to those players whose names you might not know as being guys in the 50 pt club.

Here are a bunch of guys that scored 50 or more points in one game at the NBA level.
