Watch Anthony Davis Make History With A 59-Point, 20-Rebound Masterpiece

Subscribe to UPROXX

When the basketball intelligentsia crowned Anthony Davis (however prematurely) as the NEXT BIG THING, this is exactly what they were anticipating. The Detroit Pistons simply had no answer for the The Brow Sunday afternoon at the Palace of Auburn Hills, where he set a new arena record with a mind-boggling 59-point, 20-rebound outing in a 111-106 win.

He’s just the third player since the 1963-64 season with at least 50 points and 20 rebounds. That list includes Shaquille O’Neal and Chris Webber. Speaking of Shaq, he’s the first player since The Big Diesel in 2000 with at least 59 points and 20 rebounds in a contest.

Davis showed off the entire repertoire against the Pistons, scoring points in every conceivable manner, whether that included dunks, post moves, step-back jumpers, or three-pointers.
