OKLAHOMA CITY - Kevin Martin's most memorable individual performance came on April 1, 2009.
It was a road game against Golden State, the night when Martin, as a member of the Sacramento Kings, joined the 50-point club.
"I only took 22 shots," Martin says, sounding as if he's still astonished. "That's rare."
Since the 1985-86 season, there have been 170 occurrences in which players have scored at least 50 points, according to Basketball-reference.com. Martin is one of only two players over that span to do so on 22 or fewer shots. Willie Burton once dropped 53 with the Sixers on just 19 shots.
