Players with multiple 60-point games in NBA history

As of Dec. 2020, prior to the start of the 2020-21 season, there have been 75 instances of an NBA player scoring at least 60 points.

The late Wilt Chamberlain owns a majority of these, having scored 60 or more 32 times in his career. The player with the next-best tally is Kobe Bryant with six.

The only active players on this list are the guard duo of James Harden (4) and Damian Lillard (3).

All four of Harden's 60-point games have come in the past three seasons.

On the other hand, every one of Lillard's performances of scoring 60 or more have been recorded in the 2019-20 campaign, making him only the second player in NBA history after Chamberlain to have at least three 60-point games in a single season.

Here's a list of all the players in NBA history to have multiple 60-point games:

Player Years played No. of 60-point games Career-high
Wilt Chamberlain 1959-74 32 100
Kobe Bryant 1996-2016 6 81
Michael Jordan 1984-93; 1995-98; 2001-03 4 69
James Harden 2009- 4 61
Elgin Baylor 1958-71 3 71
Damian Lillard 2012- 3 61

Note: These stats are for 60-point games recorded in regular-season history. Jordan (63) and Baylor (61) are the only players in NBA Playoffs history to drop 60-plus in the postseason.
