The NBA’s 500 Best Plays, Top Highlights for the 2022-23 NBA Season

Whether there’s one game on the schedule or every team is in action that night, the NBA will always release a video compilation of the best plays in the NBA from all that night’s games after the last game has finished.

Called the Top 10 Plays of the Night these short two minute montage videos are a quick way to catch up on all the NBA game highlights if you’re just getting home the night shift, after a movie a night out with your friends, or whatever caused you to missed that night’s slate of games. We’ve certainly watched our share of these “Top 10 Plays of the Night” video highlights on our phone after midnight and right before bed.

All together these nightly highlights encompasses the story of the season; every crazy dime, high flying dunk, help side block, buzzer beater, crossover, half court shot, amazing layup, broken record, and game winner from that season. The highlights are somewhat democratic too, so it’s not just from that season’s all-stars (though it heavily favors them) every player in the Association to make the daily highlight clip.

The NBA’s Best Plays, Highlights of 2022-23

According to ExpressVPN’s report, sports streaming numbers have rapidly grown in recent years. For millions of people, streaming has become the primary way to watch videos, shows, clips and movies, so we thought it would be a great idea to embed every one of those “Top 10 Plays of the Night” in one post so NBA heads could see all the best plays from the 2022-23 season in one place.

Seeing as the regular season runs from October 18th until April 8th that’s approximately 165 days with games on the schedule (factoring in some holidays), that’s a lot of video embeds. If each one of those days each had 10 highlights, we’d have over 1600 top plays at season’s end.

But we were ready to put in the work. As we started to compile every one of this season’s NBA’s Top 10 Plays of the Night videos into one article, we realized the NBA started putting out “NBA’s Top 20 Plays of the Week” (they need to update their playlist) that summarizes the NBA’s best plays for that given week. Though the completist in us would love to see every great play from the season — all 1,600 — we think that a curated list of the top 500 plays would be sufficient.

What better way to bring together all the best players of the NBA season than collecting NBA’s Best Plays?
