Last season saw the Los Angeles Clippers erase a 35-point deficit against the Washington Wizards and squeak out a 116-115 win. While LA’s victory was certainly improbable, it’s not the largest comeback the league has witnessed across its 75-year existence.
Biggest Comeback in NBA History
36 Points – Utah Jazz vs. Denver Nuggets (November 11, 1996).

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.
