Off the damn charts. Sucked Murray was injured in 2021, those Nuggets were better than a second-round sweep.

It never ceases to amaze me how infrequently I see Kareem and Karl Malone's names in these kind of high scoring quizzes. Dudes are the NBA's all-time leading scorers and they did it with consistency and longevity. Not occasional huge outbursts of scoring.

Jordan has as many 50-point playoff games as Wilt, Lebron, Kobe, Durant, & Malone, combined. let that sink in.

Pre-three point line too. I think there were four overtimes though, but it was still an amazing scoring night - 30 free throws, a 25ft buzzer beater, and many other clutch shots.
