Default More Impressive: 60+ points in regular season game or 50+ points in the playoffs

Tell me what you ladies think. This isn't a hidden agenda thread ... I just want to know how people feel. Which game do you value more? Which is more rare? Which is more difficult?

50+ in the playoffs is better than 80 points in the regular season

50 in the playoffs, because you know you did it against a playoff team.

well i just counted 20 guys who have scored 60. that's throughout history. i'd say the number of 50 point playoff games would easily eclipse that but that's just a hunch. either way i think scoring 60 is more difficult.

but in terms of value, you take the big playoff game 100% of the time no questions asked.

Are u serious?

I'd even take 35 points in the playoffs over a random 60 point regular season game

LBJ 46 points in game 6 over the celtics in the ECF is by far more impressive than 80+ points vs the raptors in a regular season game. Your title doesn't even come close to being debatable, of course 50 points the playoffs

It depends on the circumstances. If you are on a 60 win, #1 seed and you are playing a sub .500, #8 seed that barely sneaked into the playoffs, scoring 60 points against them is not more impressive IMO than scoring 50 against a fellow championship contender who is one of the best defensive teams in the league in the regular season.

depends what teams against.
top defensive sides?
or mike d'antoni sides? Durant, AI, Lebron, Kobe all had big scoring games vs d'antoni sides.
