Let's Go Back To When Andre Miller Scored 52 Points
You read that title right.
Andre Miller, The Professor, is mostly known for passing the ball. He’s racked up 8,484 assists in his career, ranking ninth in NBA history.
On Jan. 30, 2010, though, Miller looked more like Michael Jordan than John Stockton. At 34 years old, Miller scored 52 points for the Portland Trail Blazers while beat the Mavericks 114-112 in Dallas.
Full disclosure: The game went into overtime, so Miller had an extra five minutes. He scored seven points. But let’s not put in asterisk by this game.
Miller was fantastic, shooting 22-for-31 from the field, 1-for-1 from the 3-point line and 7-for-8 from the free-throw line. He also added five rebounds, two assists and a team-high two steals while turning the ball over just twice.

The 52 points mark a career-high for Miller. Previous to that, his career-high was 37 points. He was averaging 12 points going into that game.
Long live The Professor.
