An emacs package that fetches realtime NBA stats within Emacs. does not have a public API for fetching realtime stats, and is pretty challenging to scrape but with a-little bit of snooping through the websites' XMLHttpRequest I found their call to the internal API.

Getting Started

  • Include nba-stats.el in your .emacs.
  • Run M-x nba-scores, then enter desired date for scores (YYYYMMDD)
  • Run M-x nba-daily-player to fetch daily player leaderboards
  • Run M-x nba-daily-team to fetch daily team leaderboards
  • Run M-x nba-season-player to fetch season player leaderboards
  • Run M-x nba-season-team to fetch season team leaderboards


Depends on request.el & json.el


Clone and require nbaScores.el in your .emacs
