Basketball-Reference Adds Single-Game Highs Tables

Posted by Alex Bonilla on August 22, 2018

Basketball-Reference already had a section for single-game league records for various categories, such as points and total rebounds. But now, we've made it easier to see an individual player's single-game records by adding a Game Highs table to every player page. It will be located below the Advanced table (as well as the Shooting and Play-By-Play tables for post-2000 players).

For example, this is what Kevin Durant's Game Highs table looks like:

You can see Durant's career high in 3-pointers made in a game is seven, which he's tied in five different seasons. Also, looking at the 2017-18 season, it's easier to see that he achieved a new personal high for blocks in a game.

For players with postseason statistics, there will also be a Playoff Game Highs table further down a player's page, just above the Similarity Scores table. If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to contact us through our feedback form.
