I am very close to having a complete set of proofed line scores (i.e., scoring by quarter) for the 1950-51 NBA season forward. By "proofed" I mean that I have verified that the line score total equals the team point total. There are almost 55,000 regular season and playoff games in that period, but I only have 21 12 issues that need to be resolved.
First, here are the cases where the line score total does not match the team's point total:
195111100BOS BOS pts 83 (game) 84 (line) Found! 195812270PHW PHW pts 114 (game) 115 (line) Found! 195812270PHW STL pts 108 (game) 105 (line) Found! 196003090DET MNL pts 116 (game) 117 (line) Found! 196011050STL STL pts 119 (game) 120 (line) Found! 196111180STL CIN pts 133 (game) 136 (line) Found! 196203040SYR SYR pts 115 (game) 105 (line) Found! 196301310SYR SYR pts 112 (game) 102 (line) 196403010DET SFW pts 100 (game) 94 (line) 196403170LAL PHI pts 97 (game) 94 (line) 196602160NYK SFW pts 108 (game) 106 (line)
Second, here are the games that are missing line scores:
195011040WSC MNL and WSC 195011110NYK SYR and NYK Found! 195011110WSC BOS and WSC Found! 195011150MNL SYR and MNL 195011220BLB NYK and BLB 195011250WSC SYR and WSC 195101060WSC FTW and WSC 195102220NYK TRI and NYK 195103290SYR NYK and SYR Found! 196203120LAL NYK and LAL
I have almost exhausted the resources that I have at my disposal, so I would be very grateful if any of you could lend a hand.
