The Best Game Stat Lines in the Last 20 NBA Seasons

After I wrote about worst single game stat lines out of curiosity and almost morally I had to check the other side: The Best Single Performance Box Score Stats in the Last 20 NBA Seasons.

Once again I used my old tool for searching through player’s game logs [over 8100 of them] from
Yahoo [Last 5 seasons] and basketballreference.com [previous 15 seasons] and two measures:
Game Score where the formula is PTS + 0.4 * FG – 0.7 * FGA – 0.4*(FTA – FT) + 0.7 * ORB + 0.3 * DRB + STL + 0.7 * AST + 0.7 * BLK – 0.4 * PF – TOV and Win Score which is calculated by the following equation: PTS + REB + STL + 1/2*BLK + 1/2*AST – FGA – 1/2*FTA – TO – 1/2*PF.

So who had The Best Stat Line in the Last 20 Regular Seasons?

Worst Game Stat Lines in the Last 20 NBA Seasons

Yesterday on RealGM Forum someone asked about Worst Game Stat Line of All Time and since it wasn’t the first time and I’m a sucker for unique stat-lines I’ve decided to dig into this topic. Although I was more realistic with a timeframe because we don’t have box scores for more than a half of NBA history ;-)

I started with record books but those 14 turnovers by Kidd happened in a game with triple-double so it wasn’t exactly a disaster. The same thing can be said about another negative record Most Field Goal Attempts With None Made by Tim Hardaway because he did have 13 assists, 2 steals and FT=2/2 so it was a dead end.

Initially I wanted to do it in a organic way so I used Player Game Finder and it was fun to find such gems like Gordan Giricek’s FG=0/10 without a single rebound, assist or steal or horrible display of shooting by Terry Cummings with 21 misses from the field and 6 from the line or even stunning 27 misses from the field by Jerry Stackhouse but the problem with such searching was I couldn’t decide which one was the worst!

So I dusted off my old tool for searching through player’s game logs [over 8100 of them] from Yahoo [Last 5 seasons] and basketballreference.com [previous 15 seasons] and used two measures:
Game Score where the formula is PTS + 0.4 * FG – 0.7 * FGA – 0.4*(FTA – FT) + 0.7 * ORB + 0.3 * DRB + STL + 0.7 * AST + 0.7 * BLK – 0.4 * PF – TOV and Win Score which is calculated by the following equation: PTS + REB + STL + 1/2*BLK + 1/2*AST – FGA – 1/2*FTA – TO – 1/2*PF.
