ABOUT NBA SCORES: HOW TO READ NBA GAME SCORES

What you already know is, NBA games have four quarters, and if a game is tied at the end of the fourth quarter than the games goes into an overtime (OT) period. If a game is tied at the end of that first overtime, it goes into a second overtime (2OT), also known as double overtime. And you guessed it, next would come a third overtime (3OT), also known as triple overtime. On and on it goes. In general, the average NBA game ends in regulation -- which means it ended after four quarters. But plenty of contests do reach overtime. There's nothing particularly shocking about double overtime, either. It happens. Triple-overtime is more rare of course. And beyond that, I'd have to look up when the last quadruple overtime game was, because they don't happen too often.

As for NBA game scores, one of the first lessons you learn watching a lot of pro basketball is that when a team takes an early lead that sounds sizable, it doesn't mean the game is over. Don't stop watching a game because one team takes a 15-4 lead in the first quarter, for example. Assuming the team that is losing isn't some sort of historically bad squad, if they're even half decent it's quite possible that you'll blink your eyes and a few minutes later the score will be a more respectable 19-12 or something like that. And perhaps tied or at least close to tied by the end of the first quarter. Basketball is a game of runs. It's quite common for one team to hit a few shots in a row while the other team misses most or all of theirs. There are lots of 4-0, 6-0 or 8-2 runs in NBA basketball games. An 8-2 run is nice, but not anything shocking. A 10-2 or 10-0 run deserves more attention. Once we get to a 15-0 run or 15-2 run or something like that, that's the sort of run that would cause me to sit up and pay attention. But a 6-0 run here or an 8-2 run there, it's all par for the course.

As for reading NBA scoreboards and looking at the stat leaders, again, NBA basketball is a team game. Every team needs a leader, and actual good teams needs multiple leaders, and the guys who score get noticed first when looking at NBA box scores, followed by rebounding and assist leaders, and if you go deeper then of course blocks and steals are of interest. But it'll always be a team game, and if a team wins by a big scoring margin and somebody on the squad scored 30 on a good shooting percentage, rest assured that the rest of the team also did their part, on both offense and defense.

Still, all of that aside, an NBA player scoring 20 or more points is pretty standard in almost every game. A player scoring 30 also happens quite often, but not necessarily every game. A player scoring 40 or more happens less often and is pretty impressive. But a player scoring 50 will draw national attention. A player scoring 60 is putting himself into record books. A player scoring 70 or more points in a single NBA game is literally changing history.
