Anyone paying attention to the NBA over the last week has noticed that a lot of players are doing truly great things.
In fact, it has felt like at least one player in the league has been going off every single night, breaking records and reaching career highs.
But when you look at the numbers and statistics of the last ten days, you see that the athletes in the association really have been achieving new levels of greatness.
These last 10 days have been a historic stretch for NBA history.

This current stretch of current 40+ games from players is the most in a 10-day spent in the history of the NBA.
Some of the league’s biggest names have been putting up monster numbers.
However, no one has topped Donovan Mitchell of the Cleveland Cavaliers, who broke team records when he scored 71 earlier this week.
This has happened multiple times in the history of the league: it is as if players get fired up and encouraged when they see their competitors do so well.
Soon, everyone is trying to outdo one another.
It’s a treat for fans, that’s for sure, and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down.
On Thursday night, Lauri Markkanen of the Utah Jazz set a career-high 49 points and showed that we are living in a golden age of basketball.
