Just a few days ago I posted the best game of Darius’s NBA career; a 47-point outburst at the Pepsi Center (Denver for you n00bs).  I hope you enjoyed watching that as much as I do–it’s a personal favorite–because I’m back with his third-best effort!  If I’ve got any regular readers who also happen to be hardcore Blazer fans… sorry to keep bringing you back to this era.  Now, I’ve watched a whole lot of guys drop 30 points… it happens all the time.  Hell, according to Wikipedia Wilt once did it 65 times in a row.  As ridiculously dominant and ahead of his time as Chamberlain was, I doubt that even he ever dropped 10 Hamiltons as casually as D-Miles did on the 31st of March, 2004…

Box score.

Amazing.  At no point in the video does it look like he’s even trying.  Probably because he wasn’t!  Yeah, I hear you.  All jokes aside, nobody drops 31 in an NBA game without trying.  I think Darius was just so fluid in the way he moved… it created an incredible appearance of ease.  Take note of the coast-to-coast drive and finger-roll finish at the 3:57 mark.  Talk about smooth… that sh!t was butter!  Not my favorite play in the video, though.  The crossover and dunk at 56 seconds?  That was… excuse me as I search my vocabulary… astounding?  Nah.  I can’t even come up with a word that does the play justice.

I love how you can tell Tommy was gettin’ a little heated ’cause Darius was stylin’ on his Celtic pride. [insert pimp emoticon]
