Highest Scoring Regular Season Matches in NBA History


The highest-scoring match in NBA history took place at the McNichols Arena in Denver, Colorado on December 13, 1983 with the Nuggets taking on the Detroit Pistons. The numbers in this game were downright crazy – both teams had 142 field goals and 92 assists. Four players walked away with 40+ points.

Isiah Thomas and John Long scored 47 and 41 for the Detroit, while the Nuggets benefited from Kiki Vandeweghe’s 49 and Alex English’s 47. Despite incredible offensive showings on both sides, the Pistons ended up getting the 186-184 win.
