19. Elgin Baylor's Record 61 Points in a Playoff Game

Date: 4/14/1962

Baylor was called out of the reserves into active duty by the Army during the 1962 season. He was only allowed to play on a weekend pass, yet somehow still scored over 1,800 points that year in only 48 games. Saving his best for last, Baylor lit up the rival Celtics for 61 points during Game 5 of the 1962 Finals, setting a record that still stands fifty years later.
