In regular season and playoff games combined the Utah Jazz have been hurt by a player scoring 30 or more points by 282 different players. Tier III of the Utah Jazz killer is a player who has gone for 30+ three to four times over their careers. There are some familiar faces here for sure. Because they all had either four (tied for 56th best all time against the Jazz) or three (then tied for 69th best), there are numbers on their side. When I complete the series you'll understand.

Player 30+ 40+ 50+ Player 30+ 40+ 50+
56 Bernard King 4 1 1 56 Monta Ellis 4
56 Gilbert Arenas 4 1 1 56 Steve Francis 4
56 Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf 4 1 1 56 Terry Cummings 4
56 Charles Barkley 4 1 69 Joe Barry Carroll 3 1 1
56 Larry Bird 4 1 69 Calvin Murphy 3 1
56 Tiny Archibald 4 1 69 John Drew 3 1
56 Alvan Adams 4 69 Spencer Haywood 3 1
56 Derek Harper 4 69 Stephen Curry 3 1
56 Gary Payton 4 69 Antonio McDyess 3
56 Jim Jackson 4 69 Brian Winters 3

Yes, I don't think anyone personifies the fear we have of these repeat offenders like "Finga Gunz" does. Which of these players did you fear seeing the most?
