Yeah, but Miller has never been a very good jump shooter. He is known as a playmaker/pass first PG. It's just a little bit surprising and look at the number of free throws. Most players would have 20 free throws to get those stats. Try to find performances with straight buckets like Dre did tonight. I bet you won't find too many. I got my money.

Dude freak 50 point games from decent players have been known to happen. Tracy Murray dropped 50 in Jordan's era.

Just, FYI ...

Trend whores, Miller is great but out of all those guys in that list he's more subtle about his game. I bet when he has another 1-6 night those posters will jump on another trend.

Didn't Jamal Crawford drop 50?

Andre Miller dropping 50 is no big deal since he is 34 years old. If he did it at 24, this board would be going bananas.

He did it once with the Bulls, the team that drafted him, I remember that.

Crawford is the perfect 6th man. That's probably what Andre Miller should be.

Blazers are 7-9 without Miller starting

He dropped 52 on the Heat while playing for the Knicks, and he scored 50 on Charlotte while playing for the Warriors.

Miller had an awesome game, that off balance shot across the lane was sweet ...

Portland are going way better this season than i thought they would..

I thought Miller was a redundant signing and a needless one at that. He only blocks young guys who can handle the ball like Rudy and Bayless. I think Portland would be wise to go the younger direction since they obviously can't win it all this year. However, it's tough to do that when the sly old veteran Andre Miller drops 50+ points in a game against solid competition in a hostile environment.

Miller was simply on fire tonight. He was in the zone. I would never have expected this outcome from a pass first PG. It's a good thing for Portland but at the same time you have to wonder if it is kind of like Orlando's situation in the recent past with Skip to my Lou. Pretty soon, you're going to have to move the old guy so your younger talent can shine. And in Orlando's case that was Jameer Nelson.

It's not as ridiculous with JC. He's a streaky shooter whose a KNOWN gunner who has never met a shot he hasn't approved. He's dropped 50 + 2 or 3 times so it isn't that shocking with Crawford.

And then had his first one on the Bulls against the Raptors. That one against the Heat came with him sitting the majority of the 4th quarter as well. The Raptor one was in OT I believe, and I forget about the one against Charlotte as a member of the Warriors.

Tony Delk, a far worse player than Miller drops 53 in regulation, no overtimes before the new rules are put in place. I wonder how that happens...
