Jodie Meeks scores career-high 42 points in upset over Thunder

In an upset over the Thunder, Lakers guard Jodie Meeks led all players with 42 points, which also sets a career high.

To demonstrate Meeks' shooting efficiency today, he scored 22 more points than teammate Pau Gasol (20 points) despite having only one more field-goal attempt than Gasol, who was eight of 17 from the field.

Meeks was 11-for-18 from the field including six three-pointers (on 11 attempts) and a perfect 14-for-14 at the free-throw line.

Not only was it a career high for Meeks, but it was only the second time in his career that he scored more than 30 points in a game.  His previous career high was 31 points set back in 2012 when he was with the Sixers.

In addition to his 42 points, Meeks added four steals and two rebounds.
