Volume Scorers Can Be Efficient Too

The 42 point outburst by LeBron James in Dallas this week was a sight to see.  He was all over the court, driving, dunking on people and making three-pointers.

In addition to pouring in the points LeBron was highly efficient.  He was the first player in the NBA to score 40+ points and shoot 70% from the floor in a game since Al Jefferson last April.

Find the full list below of players who scored over forty and made 7/10 of their shots over the last two seasons:
