The '40 points in an NBA Finals game' quiz

Following two days off, the NBA Finals gets back underway Wednesday night, and while Chris Paul and the Phoenix Suns currently have a one-game advantage, the momentum may lie with Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks. The Greek Freak was transcendent in Games 2 & 3, becoming just the sixth player in NBA history to have back-to-back 40-point games in the Finals. If Giannis can keep up this level of play, the series could very well be tied at two when things shift back to Arizona. Game 4 tips off at 9 PM ET on ABC.

Which brings us to today's quiz of the day. Factoring in Giannis's last two games, an NBA player has now scored 40 or more points in a Finals game on 62 occasions. So with that in mind, how many of those 62 can you name in five minutes?

Good luck!
