The '50 points in an NBA game' quiz

After making it to the Eastern Conference Finals last season, the Atlanta Hawks have gotten off to a poor start this year. Approaching the halfway point of their season, the Hawks are 16-20 and currently completely out of the playoff picture. One thing is for sure: Trae Young is not to blame. On Monday, Young had himself a night, going off for a career-high 56 points to go along with 14 assists in a loss to the Portland Trail Blazers. After seeing what he almost singlehandedly did to the Knicks in his last playoff run, the other teams in the East have to hope Young and the Hawks continue to stay on the outside looking in when it comes to a postseason berth. 

Which brings us to today's quiz of the day. Including Young, 41 active NBA players have scored 50 or more points in a game on at least one occasion. So with that in mind, how many of the 41 can you name in five minutes?

Good luck!
