The Los Angeles Clippers erased a 35-point deficit against the Washington Wizards and squeak out a 116-115 win during the 2021-22 season. While LA’s victory was certainly improbable and delivered a payout for Clippers’ bettors at the online sportsbook, it’s not the largest comeback in NBA history.
Biggest Comeback in NBA History
36 Points – Utah Jazz vs. Denver Nuggets (November 11, 1996).
Led by their Hall of Fame tandem of Karl Malone and John Stockton, the Jazz stormed back from a 36-point deficit to stun the Nuggets 107-103.
Trailing 70-36 at the break, Utah outscored Denver 71-33 in the second half. Malone finished the contest with a monster 31-point, 17-rebound double-double, while Stockton handed out ten assists.
I've had multiple requests for the @utahjazz comeback against the Nuggets in 1996. The Jazz rallied from 36 points down, 34 at half, to beat the Nuggets 107-103. It's the biggest comeback in #NBA history. #TakeNote #KSLSportsArchive https://t.co/bZX9AvnX1J pic.twitter.com/jzvCRozc7W
