Highest Scored Games in Sports History

Sports fans where you at!

Here is a list of the highest-scoring games in American sports!

Our Criteria: The sport had to be held on American soil, the game has to have a scoring system where the winner is determined by reaching a higher numerical value (sorry golf), playoff scores don't count, and the sport can't be Quiddich.... because we said so. We will also be gauging these sports scores on the leagues of their highest level of competition.

So here we go! Here are the highest-scoring games in Basketball, Football, Hockey, Soccer, and Baseball.
