It’s safe to say that things haven’t gone as planned for the Los Angeles Lakers this season. The team is in ninth place in the West, just one game behind the New Orleans Pelicans. Anthony Davis can’t stay on the floor, while no one is ready to take Russell Westbrook off the floor. Meanwhile, 37-year-old LeBron James is still playing at the elite level, but the Lakers faithful are apparently fed up with him too. LA has 19 games left to salvage the 2021-22 season, but if they can’t, we could be looking at a completely different Lakers team next season.
Which brings us to today’s quiz. Over the weekend, LeBron notched 56 points in a must-win win over Golden State as he tries to take them to the playoffs once again. In NBA history, 21 players have scored 50 points in a game five or more times, including LeBron, who now has 13 such games in his career. With that in mind, how many can you name in five minutes?
