When: February 8, 2008
What Happened: 49 Points v. Washington Wizards
At its core, basketball is a pretty simple sport. Put the ball in the basket. Just keep shooting; sometimes you’ll make it, sometimes you’ll miss. Sometimes you’ll make 19-25 attempts (76%) for the second highest shooting percentage in a game over the last 13 years with at least 25 shots. Which is just what Melo did in his dismantling of the hapless Wizards back in 2008. Simple, right?
