Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Toronto Raptors
March 20, 2005
On March 20, 2005 LeBron James became the youngest player to score 50-plus points in an NBA game. He was 20 years, 80 days old. Rick Barry of the then-San Francisco Warriors previously held the record at 21 years, 261 days old when he scored 57 points against the New York Knicks. Although James shattered his previous career-best of 43 points set on November 24 against the Detroit Pistons, the Cavaliers lost the game to the Toronto Raptors, 105-98. James arguably played the best career of his life but he is quoted as having said that none of it matters when you still get the loss.
