Member Poll: Most likely to beat MJ's 63 point record 🤔

Trae Young had 25 at the half in Game 1 of the ECF, and it has me thinking: Who amongst active players would be most likely to beat MJ’s 35 year old record of 63 points in a single playoffs game? :thinking:

Here’s a list of top scorers and their 2020-21 scoring averages :page_with_curl:

  • Stephen Curry (32.0)
  • Bradley Beal (31.3)
  • Damian Lillard (28.8)
  • Joel Embiid (28.5)
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo (28.1)
  • Luka Doncic (27.7)
  • Zach Lavine (27.4)
  • Zion Williamson (27.0)
  • Kyrie Irving (26.9)
  • Kevin Durant (26.9)
  • Jason Tatum (26.4)
  • Donovan Mitchell (26.4)
  • Nikola Jokic (26.4)
  • Devin Booker (25.6)
  • Trae Young (25.3)
  • De’Aaron Fox (25.2)
  • LeBron James (25.0)
  • Kawhi Leonard (24.8)
  • James Harden (24.6)
  • Klay Thompson (DNP)

I think Lillard would be the most likely, personally, though I don’t think anybody is breaking the record any time soon. What do you guys think? :thought_balloon:

Book in a face mask tomorrow


Book 4sho

He had 22 points and 6 threes in the first quarter against the Lakers

I could see Trae doing it under the right circumstances.

trae, luka, tatum or dbook cause they hella young and got a whole career a head. I could see dame or giannis going ape mode as well. Rest of the league aging.

Klay :grin: hes gonna give one to you when you least expect it (aka when the Kings make the playoffs too lol)


The top 5 and possibly Tatum can easily get 63 or more and pretty sure Tatum was dropping 50+ point games just before the playoffs and I think in the first round

Curry , Doncic , Lillard , Durant , Tatum , Mitchell , Booker , Trae , Harden

all can go out and do it if the circumstances are right


Luguentz Dort?

Damian “Clutchest player in the NBA right now” Lillard.


If dame can get 50+ like he has been than there is a chance of him getting past 63

Piece of cake
