The three-point shot has become an important part of the game, especially in today’s NBA.However, there are still some players who are very good at the midrange and who continue to drive to the basket rather than the three-point line.Hence the Fadeawayworld’s list of five current players who have scored at least 41 points without attempting a 3-pointer.Lamarcus Aldridge scored 56 points, nine rebounds, four assists, zero steals, and four blocks in 48.6 minutes for the Spurs on Jan. 11, 2019. Aldridge shot 20-of-33 from 3-point range, 0-of-16 from free throw range and 0-of-33 from 3-point range.Helped the Spurs to the final victory.Lamarcus Aldridge is currently playing for the Nets as a center, but his prospects are not good due to recent injuries. He is also a veteran.Russell Westbrook (2020):45 points, 6 rebounds, 10 assists, 1 steal, and 0 blocks in 37.7 minutes for the Houston Rockets on Jan. 25, 2020. Westbrook made 16 of 27 shots, 0 of 3 and 13 of 13 free throws.Help the Rockets beat their opponents.Russell Westbrook has been a so-so lakers player, and the team’s poor record has made him a scapegoat.Giannis Antetokounmpo (2018) scored 44 points, 14 rebounds, eight assists, zero steals, and two blocks in 27.5 minutes while shooting 14-of-19 from 3-point range, 0-of-21 from free throw range and 0-of-19 from 3-point range.Help the Bucks beat the Cavs.Giannis antetokounmpo, one of the best strikers in the game, has entered his prime and is one of the top five stars in the game.On February 16, 2021, The Philadelphia 76ers’ Ben Simmons played 38.2 minutes, shooting 15-26 from the field, 0-0 from 3-point range and 12-13 from the free throw line for 42 points, nine rebounds, 12 assists, one steal and one block.Unfortunately, it didn’t help the team beat Utah.If Ben Simmons isn’t released at the trade deadline and is willing to discuss his future with the team, perhaps the Sixers will, as the team is still at a playoff level without him.Demalderozan scored 41 points, five rebounds, three assists, two steals, and zero blocks in 38.3 minutes on 15-for-21 shooting, 0-for-3 3-point shooting and 11-for-13 free throw shooting.Unfortunately, it didn’t help the team beat the Magic.Demalderozan energized the Chicago Bulls and elevated them to a playoff contender.Bottom line: lamarcus Aldridge, Russell Westbrook, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Ben Simmons and Demalderozan all proved they can go the old-school route and still score at least 41 points in a game without relying on 3-pointers.
