Corey Brewer Stuns Everyone by Dropping 51 Points Against The Rockets [Video]
Lebron James, Kevin Durant, Steph Curry and Carmelo Anthony all played last night and all got out scored by non other than Corey Brewer.
The Minnesota Timberwolves’ small forward dropped 51 points, leading his team to a 110-112 victory against the Houston Rockets.
Many where stunned by Brewer’s sudden serge of offensive production, including Brewer himself.
“I’m not even going to lie,” Brewer said with a starry look in his eyes. “Fifty?!?”
You can not blame anyone for being surprised. Brewer is averaging 12 points a game this season and is only averaging about 10 points a game in his career.
“You know how many guys scored 50 in the NBA?” said Brewer, who also had six steals. “That’s what makes it such a special night because I never in my career expected to score 50. … There’s a lot of good company up there.”
Brewer who also had six steals made the Rockets look like a high school team defensively scoring almost every way possible, including a half court buzzer beater.
“I don’t think they knew what to do with him,” Wolves coach Rick Adelman said. “We didn’t know what to do with him, either.”
One player who is still in shock is Brewer’s teammate and starting point guard Ricky Rubio who said after the game, “I want to watch it again and see if he really scored 51,”
