NBA And NHL Finals Notes

June 15, 2016

While only the 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs, who actually trailed three games to none, overcame as much as a (3-1) Stanley Cup finals deficit to win the title, no NBA team has ever done so in a finals series.

The Cavaliers win Monday night was the seventh by a road team trailing three games to one in the NBA Finals.

Four times the team up (3-1) that lost game 5 at home went on the road and won game 6, twice accomplished by Michael Jordan led Chicago Bulls’ teams including one with current Warriors’ coach, Steve Kerr as a player in 1998.

Twice the team up (3-1) that lost game 5 at home, lost game 6 on the road but prevailed in game 7. Those teams were the 1951 Rochester Royals, who actually led the New York Knicks three games to none and the 1966 Boston Celtics vs the L.A. Lakers.
