NBA players who scored 60 or more Points in one game

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

NBA Players with 60-point games


Here you have the list of players who scored at least 60 points in an NBA game. Only 2 from a total of 64 performances of 60 or more points took place in the playoffs. Jordan has the playoff record with 63 points and Elgin Baylor the Finals record with 61.

Wilt Chamberlain, the scoring machine is at the top of the list with his legendary 100-point game. That number was thought to be completely out of reach for current 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..

Anyway, while for most players on this list a 60-point game is a once in a lifetime achievement, Chamberlain appears here 32 times. The only other players with multiple appearances here are Michael Jordan (5 times), Kobe Bryant (5 times) and Elgin Baylor (4 times). After almost 5 years of drought for this list since Kobe scored 61 in 2009, Carmelo Anthony (62) and LeBron James (61) joined this selected group in 2014.
