Melo's 40 pt streak is unprecedented in NBA history


So this is pretty amazing guys.

There have been 178 streaks in NBA history of 40 + pts in a row. Wilt owns most of them, with many streaks lasting weeks.

However, Melo is the only player in NBA HISTORY t to have the following in such a streak:

Shoot 66 % or better from the field during streak.

Have a total of one turnover.

So yes, Melo’s two games were actually unprecedented in the history of the league.

A few players shot better (since 1990)

Consecutive games with 40 points or more and higher than Melo’s 66% from the field:

Lebron James 2006
Jamison- 2000
Jordan – 1991 (3 games !!)
Barkley 1990

Jordan had two 40+ pt game streaks with one turnover, in 1998 and 1997, but shot a lower percentage than Melo.
