This is not my fanpost. ALL CREDIT goes to Nima, and if you already saw this I apologize, but it's worth seeing twice!
Nima posted this as a comment on my previous fanpost in response to my question of where Brandon's 63 points through 2 games falls in the history of the NBA. The answer is stunning:
With the help of the Elias Sports Bureau, crack PR intern Aaron Grossman (Rex, to his friends) has uncovered evidence that places Brandon’s Game Two performance in perspective.
1) No other player in NBA history has EVER scored more points in a game that was either the first or second playoff appearance of his career.
MOST PTS, FIRST POST SEASON GAME
38 04/11/1979 Williamson, John
37 03/23/1949 Mikan, George
36 03/25/1970 Abdul-Jabbar, Kareem
36 04/13/1976 Brokaw, Gary
36 04/18/2009 Rose, Derrick
36 04/17/1977 Erving, Julius
MOST PTS, SECOND POST SEASON GAME
42 04/21/2009 Roy, Brandon
41 04/23/2007 Boozer, Carlos
39 04/27/2005 Arenas, Gilbert
38 04/01/1974 Lanier, Bob
38 03/24/1949 Mikan, George
2) Furthermore, Brandon’s cumulative total of 63 points after his first two playoff games puts him in pretty exclusive company.
1. 75 George Mikan
2. 69 Abdul-Jabbar, Kareem
3. 67 Paul, Chris
4. 66 Erving, Julius
5. 65 Lanier, Bob
6. 64 Issel, Dan
7. 63 Roy, Brandon
7. 63 Chamberlain, Wilt
Just a few good names on that list.
