The BBR Team Game Finder is a powerful Play Index tool. Here are some of the things you can do with it:
Single Game mode - Use this to get a list of specific games the meet certain criteria. Clicking the game date will take you to the game's box score.
Example: Biggest single-game scoring margin since 1985-86.
Cumulative Season Games mode - This adds up all the games (within the chosen criteria) for each team-season. Cumulative Season mode basically turns this tool into a "Team Season Finder".
Example: Fewest FG allowed in December games, 1985-86 to 2010-11.
Cumulative Multi-Season Games mode - This totals all the stats (meeting the specified criteria) across all years for each team. You can use it to build franchise leaderboards.
Example: Most points in home wins over the past five seasons.
Season Games mode - Use this to find teams that had the most total games matching a certain criteria in a single season.
Example: Which 1990s single-season team had the most games with 100+ points?
Total Games mode - Use this to find teams that had the most total games matching a certain criteria across multiple seasons.
Example: In the 2000s, which team has the most games where they allowed 85 or fewer points?
