Fadeaway World

Throughout its history, the NBA has seen a lot of feats that will be unforgettable and even unbreakable. When it comes to the most points scored in a single match, we know there are a couple of names that stand out the most.

Wilt Chamberlain, Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan will be the first names to come to your mind whenever you have this conversation, but there is more outside these three legends.

Every NBA team has seen one of their players take the reins of the game and go off in a certain match, making history for themselves and their respective franchises. Redditor ‘DraymondShldntWear23’ posted a complete list of the most points scored in a single game for every franchise in the NBA.
