The Knicks gave up back-to-back individual 50 point scoring performances to Kobe Bryant and LeBron James:
The last NBA team to relinquish such a double was the San Francisco Warriors- and DC’s Elgin Baylor has the distinction of dealing out both fifties. James accomplished a triple-double in his 52 point outburst- only Elgin Baylor (52) and Wilt Chamberlain (53) have ever scored as many points during a game where they registered a three-fer. Spingarn grad Baylor did it on 12-13-61.
Not for nothing was the man called “Rabbit”.
