50 Point Games

The newly named Washington Wizards defeated the lowly Warriors on Feb 10 1998.  A star shooter from UCLA named Tracy Murray poured in 50 points on 29 shot attempts.  On the sidelines for the Wizards that night were two of the Fab Five, Chris Webber and Juwan Howard.

Murray made the third most 3-pointers in the NBA in ’98 while connecting on 87% of his free throws (6th in league) and posting a 52% Effective Field Goal Pct (16th in NBA).  In his single dynamite game though, he may not have been the best player on the floor.  Point guard Rod Strickland scored 21 points of his own while dishing out 20 assists and leading all players with 12 rebounds.
