3 unlikely NBA stars who recorded 50-point games
#1 Corey Brewer
In April 2014, Corey Brewer recorded 51 points during Minnesota's 112-110 victory over the Houston Rockets. Known primarily for his defense, Brewer averaged 12.3 points per game over 81 contests during the 13/14 campaign, however, everything clicked for one night as Brewer enjoyed the best game of his career.
The then 28-year-old recorded 26 points in the first half, adding a further 25 in the second period, and his combined 51 points shattered his previous season high of 27. Brewer finished the game shooting 19 of 30 from the field, also knocking down 11 of his 15 free-throw attempts. Brewer's performance put him among only four players to record 50-points during the 13/14 season, and less than a year later, Brewer joined the team that he enjoyed the greatest game of his career against.
