The first basketball game between an NBA and a FIBA team was held in 1978 in Tel Aviv, Israel. Maccabi Tel Aviv surprisingly beat the defending NBA champion Washington Bullets 98-97. Since then only 4 other Euroleague teams have defeated an NBA franchise: FC Barcelona, Baloncesto Málaga and Real Madrid from Spain and CSKA Moscow from Russia.

In addition to defeating the Washington Bullets in 1978, Maccabi Tel Aviv also beat the New Jersey Nets and Phoenix Suns in 1984 in Israel, and beat the Toronto Raptors 103-105 in Toronto in 2005. As of 2008, this is the only FIBA victory on North American soil. The FC Barcelona and CSKA Moscow wins came during the 2006 NBA Europe Live Tour, where Barcelona beat the Philadelphia 76ers 104-99, and the Moscow won by 19 over the Los Angeles Clippers (94-75), the widest FIBA victory so far. During the 2007 NBA Europe Live Tour, Baloncesto Málaga beat the Memphis Grizzlies 102-99, and Real Madrid beat Toronto 104-103.

In addition, one national squad, the Soviet Union National Team, beat the Atlanta Hawks 132-123 in an exhibition game in Moscow in 1988.

Most of these games were initially played as part of the now-defunct McDonald's Championship, where NBA teams always won the games. Since 2006, they are played during the NBA Europe Live Tour.
