Anyone think it is kind of weird, sign of the times maybe, that the highest scoring game this season is 54 from Curry? Seems like in the past 10 years most seasons have had numerous 50+ point games and often more than one 60+ game. Especially when you got a guy like Durant in the game(or Steph curry for that matter, that guy can shoot with the best of them) not to mention Lebron. I honestly don't think Lebron will ever have a 60 point game in his career really. Durant still has westbrook alongside him so maybe his overall scoring output is split a little. But still, has defense just gotten better? are superstars more pass-first? is it just a coincidence?

First of all, there aren't that many players with enough fire power to score 50+ nowadays. Durant, Melo, Kobe, LeBron and a couple of others if they get really hot. In the last 10 years as you put it, Kobe is probably responsible for like 60% of the 50+ point games, right? And he's on his 17th season now, I don't see him having that type of games anymore. Maybe he'll put up 50 again, but it's not really what he's focusing on right now and it's a very tough feat to pull off at 34..
Superstars are more concerned with playing an all-around game nowadays than trying to score a lot. Durant is going for triple doubles instead of high scoring games (which really isn't his strong suit, and I think has cost OKC a couple of games this season). Melo relies too much on jumpers and he can be inconsistent. LeBron usually isn't focused on scoring a bunch of points either. It's a different mentality IMO.

Drew did it vs. the Nugs in the playoffs last year. I don't know if anything has been more recent than that though.

Stephen Curry is like Ray Allen, he's a pure shooter and not just with three pointers. These guys aren't super athletic so their ability relies solely on their play making and perimeter game. So for him to get 54 points on strictly shooting jumpers and 3 pointers is something else because not many players can do that. I say that because there haven't been many players who are so pure at shooting the ball like that. It runs in the Curry family though watching his brother at Duke. Stephen is still young so he can aim for a little history too.

^ That literally might be one of the weirdest, if not THE weirdest thing/ending I've seen to a basketball game.

To the play by play guy credit , I thought the shot was in too from this angle ...

I understood it was an air ball as soon as I saw the players reactions though :man10:

Incredible game by Noah. I believe the guy's been the best C so far this season.

Luckily, Dwight is improving every day :man9:

EDIT: Sorry, 2nd best. Forgot about Duncan, who's playing center now.

Lebron was about two inches from tearing every ligament in his knee. The way he landed, he's lucky it wasn't worse.

That is crazy in itself. After doing the the full court sprints he's had to do all game, it's pretty amazing he still has the legs to get up that high.

That looked like a great and relatively clean block until the above the rim replay..... Bron was holding his shoulder.

JR Smith is the younger , faster and more athletic version of Metta ... taking decisions and shots thinking he's the best player in the league .

Heat on 15 game winning streak and it seems like every time a team has them on the ropes they comeback and win it. I guess they really are just kind of in 'cruising' mode punching the accelerator to win games but otherwise playing at 80% or whatever until the Playoffs. If true, then maybe their chances of repeating are actually a lot more significant than I initially assumed. Which kind of sucks, I don't want the superfriends to keep winning championships, their singular quasi-astericks lockout season championship is enough.
