Teams: Detroit Pistons vs. Denver Nuggets
Result: 186-184, Pistons
MVPs: Kiki Vandeweghe, Isiah Thomas, Alex English
Date: 12/13/1983

In a high-scoring league like the NBA, two teams have to be at their absolute best in order to set a new record for scoring. Even then, they'd certainly have a difficult time matching or bettering the figure set by the Pistons and the Nuggets in 1983. Over the course of regulation and three OTs, the two squads racked up 370 points, led by Denver's Kiki Vandeweghe, who scored 51, as well as Alex English and Isiah Thomas, who each netted 47. Since then, no one has been able to make a worthy stab at the record. For now, the mark is untouchable.
