Terrence Ross came into last season as a rookie averaging 17 minutes of playing time and just 6.4 ppg but he made a name for himself when he won the 2013 Sprite slam dunk title. Now midway through the 2013-14 NBA season, going into Saturday night's game against the Los Angeles Clippers, T-Ross had averaged just under 10 points per game and then...he exploded for a 51 point performance, tying Vince Carter's franchise record that was set back in 2000. T-Ross made his name known again, and the NBA took notice.
Former Raptor Reggie Evans chimed in:
T Ross 51points he was HOT!!!!!!!!!

Raptor teammate Landry Fields:

Even King James himself sent out a tweet:

And of course, T-Ross sent out his own tweet:
Blessed to score my career high tonight, too bad we didn't get the W. Thanks everyone for all of the support! #Raptors #NBA #BlessedQuestion is....if Rudy Gay was still on this roster, would we have ever seen what T-Ross was capable of?
