We Reminisce: Karl Malone drops 50 on Seattle in the playoffs

I honestly don’t even remember this game. But as a Sonics fan, maybe I blocked it from my memory. In the first round of the 2000 playoffs, Karl Malone dumped 50 points on Seattle in Game 1 of the series (18-32 FG, 13-14 FT) to go with 12 boards and 3 steals. I wish I could tell you why Lazaro Borrell was starting at PF that night for us and Vin Baker came off the bench, but I doubt it would have made a difference who guarded The Mailman on this night.

    Absolutely amazing. Some amazing passes from Stock in there too. Thanks for posting this! Damn I miss the mailman.

    Thats what i used to talk abaout Malone, the guy is a big jump Shooter, he had no game inside. Watch the uglies layups.

    But he delivered.

    So…

    2 things about the video

    Malone was almost 37 years old when he did that … T-Mac is 30 and if he score 20 people will go crazy , what a work ethic

    Bob Costas is the worst narrator in the NBA history

    I hate Malone’s game lol… That lame pose he does on his break away dunk just pisses me off.

  • Heckler

    good thing scored FITTY. cause if he only scored 30pts, Utah would have got smacked on their own court in a game1

    yeah, how old was Pippen last time he scored 40? malone is almost 40 here and drops 50. (yet Malone is regarded by some to be the lesser player — put karl and jordan on the same team and they win 9 rings at least)

    malone evolved his game. maybe you were too young to see him play in the 80s, when he was dunking it on kareem in the playoffs. he was a post up player in his 20s.

    Amar’e Stoudemire + Schwarzenegger = Karl Malone

    #9 + a guy who actually plays defense

  • Darius

    ah. The real home of the nba on NBC with John Tesh music. I hope they get the league back in 2016. Oh and Bob Costas was a good commentator. He’s not a good “narrator” because he’s broadcasting basketball not reading a childrens book

    ostertag looks so clueless out there

    How could you not respect Karl Malone & Stockton’s game? As much as you hated them growing up, they were always on point. Did anyone else notice how well the ball moved? Always a quick hit to the open man.

    @5 The hand behind the head pose was effin annoying
