Description

The NBA events page dates back to 12/16/2011. However, when trying to request box scores for those games the API returns FileNotFoundException. I've encountered the problem for all box scores before 12/25/2011. That seems to be the first date that NBA box scores exist. I'm not sure this is a bug but I think it should be listed somewhere.

Closing Comment

Updated API documentation to clarify box scores are only available for regular and postseason games. /api/methods/nba-box-score /api/methods/mlb-box-score

Thanks for reporting. These are preseason games. I will update the documentation to indicate that only regular and postseason games have box score data.
