March 16, 2008 -- The Denver Nuggets set a franchise record for most points scored in a regulation game in Sunday's 168-116 rout over the Seattle Sonics. The mark is also a league season high, surpassing the total Denver accumulated in Seattle earlier this season (138).

The 168 points collected by the Nuggets is the fourth most in NBA history in regulation time. The Boston Celtics racked up 173 points against the Minneapolis Lakers on February 27, 1959 as did the Phoenix Suns against the Nuggets on November 10, 1990.

The most points scored in a game all-time is 186, which was set by the Detroit Pistons in 1983 when they defeated the Nuggets in triple overtime.
