3 unlikely NBA stars who recorded 50-point games
#2 Terrence Ross
Back in early 2014, Terrence Ross exploded to score a career-high 51 points in the Toronto Raptor's 126-118 defeat against the Los Angeles Clippers. While Ross' incredible individual performance wasn't enough to secure a Toronto win, he did manage to match the franchise record for points in a game set by the legendary Vince Carter back in 2000.
At the time, Ross was only a second-year guard, and for the 13/14 season as a whole, the then 22-year-old averaged just 10.9 points per game. Nevertheless, Ross' career night saw him almost double his previous career high (26). Ross also knocked down 10 of his 17 three-point attempts, finishing the game shooting over 60% from the field. In the following years, Ross has only passed 30 points in a game on one occasion, and his 50-point game will go down in NBA history as one of the most unlikely ever recorded.
