The NBA's regular season featured plenty of eye-popping performance - but a handful stand out for their sheer ridiculousness.
Here's a list of the 10 greatest single-game performances this season, ranked by Basketball-Reference's Game Score:
41 PTS, 13 REB, 7 AST, 2 STL, 2 BLK
Game Score: 43.4
It was a breakout season for the Greek Freak, who finished tied for fourth in scoring average at 26.9 points per game while providing plenty of above-the-rim highlights. But Giannis saved his best for that Jan. 26 encounter with the Brooklyn Nets, pouring in 41 points while flirting with a triple-double; he also committed just one turnover in what was a near-perfect performance.
44 PTS, 23 REB, 10 AST, 4 STL, 1 BLK
Game Score: 43.7
Of all the triple-doubles registered this season - and there were a lot - this might have been one of the most dominant. Boogie was a madman on the boards, hauling in 23 boards - one shy of his career best - while adding four swipes. The only black mark on the night: He shot just 13-for-29 in the 132-128 double-overtime triumph over Chicago - but really, who cares?
52 PTS, 5 REB, 8 AST, 1 STL, 1 BLK
Game Score: 44.1
Happy New Year indeed. DeRozan's highest-scoring game was also one of his most efficient from a shooting perspective; the Raptors superstar connected on 17-of-29 shots from the field, shot 5-of-9 from from 3-point territory - where he's hardly a sharpshooter - and made all 13 of his free-throw attempts. Toronto went on to prevail 131-127 in OT over Milwaukee.
42 PTS, 15 REB, 3 AST, 3 STL, 3 BLK
Game Score: 45.4
The first of two entries on this list for Davis, his Valentine's Day massacre of the Los Angeles Lakers featured a little bit of everything. Davis missed just three field-goal attempts on the night while connecting on both of his 3-point attempts and going 10-of-11 from the line. Even more impressively: Davis did it all in just 33 minutes, tied with Giannis for the fewest of anyone on the list.
56 PTS, 15 REB, 4 AST, 0 STL, 1 BLK
Game Score: 46.0
Move over, Mo Williams. Towns established a Timberwolves record for points in one of the most masterful performances in the league this season; the former No. 1 overall pick knocked down six 3-pointers while converting 12-of-15 attempts from the free-throw line. And he really turned things on after the break, pouring in 30 points and adding 11 boards in the second half.
46 PTS, 15 REB, 7 AST, 0 STL, 7 BLK
Game Score: 47.9
Embiid gave NBA fans a glimpse of his stratospheric potential early in the season, posting the kind of stat line only a handful of bigs - the majority of them Hall of Famers - have ever produced. Despite playing just 34.5 minutes, Embiid nearly outscored the rest of the 76ers' starting five by himself; the seven blocked shots were a season high for the 7-foot Process.
56 PTS, 2 REB, 13 AST, 2 STL, 0 BLK
Game Score: 49.2
One of only two players with multiple entries on this list, Harden was far from perfect, pulling down just two boards while committing seven turnovers - but boy, did he produce a lot of offense. The 56 points tied for the third-most in the league this season, and his 13 helpers were the most in any game on this list. And he was dangerously efficient, connecting on 19-of-25 shots from the floor.
53 PTS, 18 REB, 3 AST, 1 STL, 5 BLK
Game Score: 50.1
Hello again! Davis was simply magnificent in a 125-116 triumph over the Phoenix Suns at the end of February, hauling in more rebounds than the rest of the New Orleans starting five combined while connecting on 21-of-26 attempts from the free-throw line. Davis is the only player in league history with at least 53 points, 18 rebounds, and five blocks in a game.
57 PTS, 11 REB, 7 AST, 3 STL, 2 BLK
Game Score: 53.2
It wouldn't be a true list of incredible games without an appearance by The King - and even in his early-30s, James can stuff a stat sheet with the best of them. The future Hall of Famer shot an incredible 23-of-34 from the field and 9-of-9 from the line in one of the most dominant showings of his career. The 57 points are the second-most LeBron has ever scored in a game.
60 PTS, 10 REB, 11 AST, 4 STL, 1 BLK
Game Score: 56.6
What Harden did on the second-last day of January remains one of the most incomprehensibly absurd feats in NBA history. Harden shot 19-of-30 from the floor, 5-of-14 from 3-point range and 17-of-18 from the line to produce the highest-scoring game of the season. Oh, and he also racked up double-digit boards and assists for the highest-scoring triple-double in NBA history.
