It was back in 1929, and he was probably the greatest ball carrier of his day.

He played for the Chicago Cardinals. What was his name? Ernie Nevers. In a game against the Chicago Bears, Nevers carried the ball for six touchdowns, as the Cardinals beat the Bears 40 to 6.

Two other ballplayers, Dub Jones of Cleveland in 1951, and Gayle Sayers of Chicago in 1965, scored six touchdowns in one game, too. But in 1929, Nevers was also the point after-touchdown kicker, and he managed to place four of six tries right between the goalposts for a total of forty points scored.

In that game, Garland Grange, brother of the famous Red Grange, carried the ball over the goal line for the Chicago Bears 6...

If there was ever any doubt that Klay Thompson was among the best scorers in today’s NBA, then it was laid to rest during his superb showing in the 2015 NBA Finals, but real basketball heads saw it happen during the regular season against the Sacramento Kings. Back then, Thompson exploded for 52 points as the Golden State Warriors pummeled the Kings 126-121. That final number is crazy high, but it’s not what everyone remembers from the game. People remember his third-quarter performance, because that’s when Thompson went en fuego.

That Friday, Thompson set a new record for most individual points scored in a single quarter, with 37. What? That’s insanity: 37 points, one quarter. Who does that? Well, apparently, Thompson does. But he’s not the only player in the history of the NBA to put up a ton of points in one frame.

As part of our solving real-life problems in Excel series, figure out who scored the most points overall in this interactive.

"Hey! There you are! So, I've been keeping track of my daughter's basketball team with a spreadsheet…

…and I want to help the coach calculate some different stats. I've recorded how many points each player scored during each game. Could you help me figure out who's scored the most points overall?"

Our spreadsheet

Once you've downloaded our spreadsheet, open the file in Excel or another spreadsheet application. You may want to take a moment to see how the data is organized. As you can see, there is a different row for each of the players and different columns for the number of points they scored in each game.

What are we trying to figure out?

Before we write our formulas, let's think about the problem we're trying to solve. Our friend wants to find out which player scored the most points total over these...

Competitive Play is the ranked Play Mode of Overwatch. In this mode, players stay on the same team for a full attack/defense rotation. If the player leaves before the match ends, they cannot join another game until it does. In addition, continued leaving may result in being restricted from Competitive Play. Departed players are not backfilled.

Players must achieve level 25 before this mode is unlocked.

On Escort maps, the attacking team which escorts the payload the furthest wins. If neither team manages to move the payload at all, the match results in a tie. If both teams reach their destination, a new rotation is played using the time bank rules. On Assault maps, the attacking team which captures the most control points wins. If both teams capture the same amount of points, time bank rules are used. On Hybrid maps, the attacking team which captures the control point and/or escorts the payload the furthest wins. If neither team captures the control point, the match...

So we decided in v0lliz's topic that we would split the topic into two as my tweaks and his were getting very confusing, I currently have only done two tweaks and will post them here with some results. I will also try and do an in depth explanation of the throw in routine that is used and some players that can be bought to take advantage of this straight away.

My first tweak was a mixture of a korean 433 and v0lliz and seemed to work amazingly I am currently playing with a great Shrewsbury team in 2023 but I haven't lost a game in 180 games I think currently and only drawn 2 in the league in the last 3 years! The first season of this run was with my original tweak which I have now deleted as the V11 was far superior.

If you would like me to dig out some screenshots I can but can't be bothered right now. I will explain OIs and training at the end after I post my second tweak. Also someone had some good results with Norwich as well?

Okay onto the next tweak which I have...

This page features the complete list of players with 60-point games in the NBA, including the season and playoffs.

Here you have the list of players who scored at least 60 points in an NBA game. Only 2 from a total of 66 performances of 60 or more points took place in the playoffs. Michael Jordan owns the playoffs record with 63 points and Elgin Baylor the Finals record with 61.

Wilt Chamberlain was a scoring machine and he's at the top of the list with his legendary 100-point game. That number was thought to be completely out of reach for modern-era players until in 2005-06 Kobe Bryant scored 62 points in 3 quarters before sitting in the fourth and then, a month later, he climbed to the second place in this list by scoring 81 points..

While for most players a 60-point game is a once in a lifetime achievement, Chamberlain appears here 32 times. The only other players with multiple appearances are Kobe Bryant (6 times), Michael Jordan (5 times) and Elgin...

They’re the performances that take your breath away. You know the ones we’re talking about. The ones where the shooter can’t miss; the ones with the big man that can’t be stopped. These are the contests where an individual’s point total keeps climbing, forcing you to ask yourself one simple question: How many points is he going to finish with?

As we wait in anticipation what will hopefully be another exciting year of NBA basketball, this seems like as good a time as any to take a look back through the record books at some of the most remarkable individuals scoring performances of all time.

With that in mind, here’s a breakdown of the ten highest individual single-game scoring totals in NBA history. Oh, and more than half of them belong to the same man.

10. Wilt Chamberlain, 70 points (3/10/63)

The number matches the man.

On March 2, 1962, Wilt Chamberlain set the NBA single-game scoring record by tallying 100 points for the Philadelphia Warriors in a 169-147 victory over the New York Knicks.

Not 98 points, not 102, but a nice, round 100 -- an imposing record set by a most imposing player.

Chamberlain was a gargantuan force in the NBA, a player of Bunyanesque stature who seemed to overshadow all around him. He was a dominant offensive force, unstoppable on his way to the basket, yet he was also a fine all-around athlete who took pride in developing the all-around skills to compete with players a half-foot shorter.

He certainly was unstoppable that night in Hershey, Pa., where the Warriors played a few of their "home" games in order to attract additional fans. With New York's starting center, Phil Jordan, sidelined by the flu, Chamberlain could not be contained by Darrall Imhoff and Cleveland Buckner. He scored 23 points in the first quarter and had...

Kiki Vandeweghe and Alex English of the Nuggets scored 98 points in the highest scoring game in NBA history vs. the Detroit Pistons on December 13, 1983 (a triple overtime). The score was 186-184 and the Pistons also had a pair of teammates with more than 40 points (#3 on the list).

A pair of teammates could have scored 30-39 and 59+ points to top this but I didn't see that from a quick look at box scores in [1].

Here's a list of teammates who scored 40 points each [2]:
