It all kicked off on January 22nd when Joel Embiid’s phenomenal 70-point performance led the 76ers to victory over the Spurs. Simultaneously, Karl-Anthony Towns notched an impressive 62 points, although the Timberwolves couldn’t secure the win.

Fast forward to January 26th, and Luka Doncic entered the spotlight, scoring a career-high 73 points to guide the Mavericks to a thrilling victory against the Hawks. On the same night, echoing an almost surreal repetition of history, Devin Booker delivered a 62-point performance for the Suns in their loss to the Pacers.

What adds an extraordinary layer to these recent exploits is the fact that, before this week, the NBA hadn’t witnessed two players scoring over 60 points on the same day since 1978 when David Thompson and George Gervin achieved this feat.

Overall, once again before this week, there were only three days in NBA history where players have done such a thing.
