Wow. I'd say JO getting 30 is the most likely of those to happen, except for the high lottery ones of course.

I don't have his gamestats from last season.....but JONeal did not score 30 points ( or more ) in any game in the 2007-2008 season. :banghead:

Are you sure. I thought there was at least one. I'm pretty sure he got above thirty in one near the end of the season.

He had 30 vs. Phoenix on December 4.

the odds were thus 1 in 42 (2.4%) for this past year, which is well over the 0.8%.

BSPN is inaccurate? Surprised?

Actually, there were 2:

12/04/07 - 30 pts against the Suns

01/04/05 - 55 pts against the Bucks

Honorable Mentions:

12/28/07 - 25 pts against the Pistons

01/13/08 - 27 pts against the Warriors

How exactly did he score at least 30 points twice this season? You can't count the game against the Bucks. LOL

Nuff just blew my mind with his Lost caliber time shift. So JO was playing against Millwaukee on the island and ended up scoring 55 in the middle of the desert 3 years later? Okay sir.
