Brew on, Brewer. Brew on.

Corey Brewer went off Friday night, scoring a career-high 51 points in a 112-110 victory over the Houston Rockets. Brewer joins a long list of players -- one you can find here courtesy of Basketball-Reference -- of players who have scored at least 50 points in a single game.

He shattered his previous season high of 27 points. Brewer's final points came at the free-throw line, where he drained both shots to eclipse the 50 point mark. Here's the shot chart of Brewer's big night:

Brewer made 19 field goals, but sank 11 of his 15 free-throw attempts. The scoring outburst ties Kevin Durant for the fourth-highest single-game total of the 2013-2014 season. Durant, Brewer, Terrence Ross, Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James have all reached the 50-point mark this season

59 total players have just one 50-point game recorded in their career. Notable names to have only one of these scoring nights? How about Paul Pierce, Amar'e Stoudemire, Glen Rice, Tony Parker, Tim DuncanKevin Love and a long, interesting list that goes on and on. Tony Delk and Willie Burton, anyone?

It's a fascinating club Brewer is joining. One that has only become more fascinating.
