Team Score Finder
Posted by Justin Kubatko on June 17, 2013
I have added a Team Score Finder to the Basketball-Reference.com Play Index. With this new tool you can answer questions like:
- What is the record for most points scored in the fourth quarter?
- How many teams have been held scoreless in an overtime period?
- What is the record for largest deficit overcome after three quarters?
- How many teams have blown a halftime lead of 25 or more points?
- What is the record for most points scored in a regulation game?
If you have any questions or comments about the Team Score Finder, please leave them here or use our feedback system. Thanks and enjoy!
Thank you! I've been waiting for this for years! If there can be one like this for the NHL, it would be nearly perfect.
Again this was just what I was asking for only 2 weeks ago. Great work and much appreciated.
I will take some time and enjoy this tool and may have some further feedback later.
If only your friends over at the Football site could take a look at the wonderful tools you have here.
Have you sent us a note about what you want on the PFR site? This sort of tool is already available on the football site.
For instance, here are the teams to win the most games while being held scoreless in the first half.
what about a point differential by quarter
In reply to Post #3
I am familiar with the Play Index tools on the Football site and use them regularly, however I do wish they were as comprehensive as yours here.
For instance, I have requested Streak Finders for the Football site for about 3 years now but still no luck. I have also come up with numerous other features and additions I’d like.
I have for some time advised of Bugs and Errors that I have found on the Football site and many of these still have not been fixed and some of these are relatively simple to correct, such as incorrect Game Venues and incorrect/missing Start Times.
I do enjoy all your sites immeasurably and I am all too happy to contribute where I can in keeping these to a high standard of accuracy.
@Dave D: You can get point differential by quarter. Here's an example:
How do we find the most points scored in a 4th quarter when the game is tied after 3
Justin, any chance of adding an Overtime option to the Team Streak Finder so one can find winning and losing streaks in OT games only (both Reg. Season & Playoffs).
@Dave D: Sorry, you can't do that at this time. I'll look into adding something like that.
