Thursday, January 4, 2024

Wednesday night might have been the wildest scoring bonanza in NBA history.

It was also the first night in NBA history where four games featured teams that both scored 130 or more. Nowhere was this more on display than in the Utah Jazz's victory over the Detroit Pistons, which had the teams combining for 302 total points.
