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.

Here you have the list of players who scored at least 60 points in an NBA game. Only 2 from a total of 67 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 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. Then in 2016 Kobe scored 60 again in the final game of his career, and in 2016-17 Klay Thompson was the first to finish with 60 in less that 30 minutes (29) while Devin Booker became only the 6th player in NBA history to get at least 70 points.
