When You Set A Team Scoring Record, Why Not Do It Against Your Former Team

With the NBA’s training camp not opening up for a few weeks, lets take a look back in time. John Hollinger created a statistic called Game Score and it has been kept since the 1983-1984 season and it is a measure of how a player performed in each game they played in.

So the here is how the formula : PTS  Scored+ 0.4 * FG Made- 0.7 * FGA – 0.4*(FTAFT) + 0.7 * ORB + 0.3 * DRB + STL + 0.7 * AST + 0.7 * BLK – 0.4 * PFTOV.

So lets take a look back through memory lane and lets countdown the 20 greatest Single Game Regular Season Individual Performances since the inception of the Game Score statistic:
