ESPN provides NBA "game flow" data, which show the score for each team over the course of the game. It's just a timeseries - score per team per timestep (assuming minute) of the game.

Other posts have asked for game scores, which appear to be available here. I want the timeseries of score per team per timstep for each team, which isn't addressed by the prior post.

Where I can find (or scrape) this kind of data for historical NBA games (e.g., this season)?

  • Perhaps you can scrape the final charts from the webpage for each game (I don't know how long ESPN makes them available) and then write code to extract the time series from the graphs. It wouldn't be easy but should be doable. – John Coleman Jun 15 '16 at 17:48

    @philshem yes, saw that. i'm specifically interested in the game timeseries data over the course of each game whereas that request seems to simply ask for game final scores. – lmart999 Jun 15 '16 at 19:10
