Micah Adams: Stephen Curry had as many or more 35-point games that series as the following players had in their entire playoff careers: – Ray Allen – Chris Mullin – Patrick Ewing – Adrian Dantley – Pete Maravich – James Worthy – David Robinson – Steve Nash – David Thompson – Kevin Garnett
Micah Adams: There is precedent for LeBron to make an All-NBA team while playing 55 games for a losing team. Bernard King made 1st Team in 1984-85 while playing 55 for the 24-58 Knicks. Pete Maravich made 2nd Team in 1977-77 while playing 50 for the 39-43 Jazz.
Justin Kubatko: Spencer Dinwiddie is just the fifth player since 1970-71* to record at least 35 points and 10 assists in a game coming off the bench. The others are Pete Maravich, Brian Winters, Jamal Crawford, and Lou Williams. * Starts were first officially recorded in 1970-71. pic.twitter.com/PeTL9tAea9
Justin Kubatko: Kemba Walker is just the sixth player in NBA history to follow up a 60-point game with a 40-point game. The others are Wilt Chamberlain, Pete Maravich, Michael Jordan, Tracy McGrady, and Kobe Bryant.
