Can you name every NBA player to score 50 points in a game during 2022-23 season?

By | January 30, 2023

The high-scoring performances around the NBA this season have been on another level, with Luka Doncic following Giannis Antetokounmpo’s 50-piece on Sunday night with one of his own on Monday. 

The Mavericks guard now has four 50-point games this season, continuing what’s been a historic season so far. Not only is overall scoring the highest its been in over 50 years, the league is setting an all-time mark for offensive efficiency.

At the midway point of last season, only four players had 50-point games.


Doncic is one of five players this season with multiple 50-point games, with his four leading the league and is among a group of 12 players to cross the 50-point mark this season.

Not only does that number dwarf last season’s mark at this same point, it is BY FAR the most ever around the halfway point.

Before scrolling down, can you name all 12 players?
