John Long (41pts/6asts) vs. Nuggets (1983)

John Long torches the Nuggets from mid-range by making 18 of 25 field goals. And not everyone of them came after Zeke had found him for an open spot up look, some of the shots he finds off the dribble have a certain degree of difficulty. Even though I included the delight of George Blaha and Dave Bing after some of Long’s baskets, take those stats with a grain of salt as they were incorrect and later, to their own dismay, the two admitted that John wasn’t actually 14/14 from the field. I don’t think he had missed more than two fields goals up to that point though, so he was on fire either way.
