The NBA celebrated its 50th anniversary in 1997. Now we are already in the 74th season of the NBA and within those years, some astonishing records were made. Here we will have a look at some of these unbreakable records. Let’s hope there are more to come.
In NBA History, this has only happened four times, and all done by different players, so it’s safe to say that we will be waiting for a long time for this record to be beaten. The closest any player has come to a quadruple-double recently was in 2017 by Draymond Green but he missed out on the easiest stat of points.
37 Points in a Quarter
Klay Thompson made this record in 2015. Klay also knocked down nine 3-pointers in that same quarter, which is also a record. The team then finished the game with 52 points. The previous record for this was 33 points by George Gervin in 1978.
88 Games Played in a Season
This record was made by Walt Bellamy of the New York Knicks between 1968 and 1969 and has never been beaten. In normal circumstances, 82 games played are usually celebrated in today’s NBA. But back in the day, Walt Bellamy played 88 games during the 1968-1969 season.
107 Points in a Half by a Team
The Phoenix Sun team of 1990-1991 was the fourth-highest scoring team of the NBA. They averaged 114 points in each game, but on November 10, they almost reached the average in the first half of the game. On the same day, they beat the Denver Nuggets by scoring 107 points.
62 046 Attendance at One Game
This record attendance game happened in 1998 when the Chicago Bulls and Atlanta hawks played at the Georgia Dome. The stadium took 2 years to build in the city of Atlanta and is now known as the Hawks’ home arena. This all because of Michael Jordan joining in on the game, and he did not disappoint. The bulls got 34 points.
136 Games with 100-Plus Points
For nearly 2 years in the 1980s, the Denver Nuggets scored 100 points minimum in every game they played. This great streak lasted for 136 games. Although they went 74-62 during the streak, they did not win a single playoff game in that streak.
With so many unbreakable records, we wonder what the next greatest record will be. Visit our blog frequently to see the latest records that are being made and broken in the upcoming season.
