NBA Officially Gone Soft With 50-Point Games Becoming The Norm

(Kamil Krzaczynski/AP)

Another 50-point game happened last night in Chicago when Jimmy Butler was the offense. He finished with 52 points, becoming the second player in Bulls history besides Michael Jordan to achieve that. This marks the eight player this season getting 50 points in a game, which pretty much sums the direction of the NBA being soft.

 

There are a couple of reasons why everyone is seeing these explosive scoring performances on a daily basis. First off, the rules are favoring guards and small forwards than power forwards and centers. Everyone knows that hand checking isn’t allowed anymore compared to the 90s. Well, it’s in effect now, which is causing frustration for head coaches.

 

Last Friday, Isaiah Thomas of the Boston Celtics scored 52 points over the Miami Heat. On New Year’s Eve, James Harden of the Houston Rockets not only had a triple double against the New York Knicks, but scored 53 as well. Suddenly no one is impress with these numbers because it’s slowly becoming the norm. Those NBA fans may like offensive games. But those days of seeing grind out games are over.

 

NBA teams now have that one star capable of going off at any given moment. It also helps making three point shots, because any contender or young team can’t go far without shooters on the court. Thus with all of this into play, no team has a defensive rating below 100 points per 100 possessions according to Sports Illustrated’s Jeremy Wood. This also includes the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers, that play defense at a high level.

 

Keep a close eye on the rest of the NBA season and see who else scores 50 points in a game. This is the era of scoring through pick and rolls, and through a star that will change a game because of their presence on the court.
