Both NBA “Semis” Are Tied At Two Games Apiece

May 23, 2018

Both NBA semi-final series are tied at two games apiece after the Houston Rockets won the first competitive game of the eight, at Golden State last night.

Meanwhile, for the third time in their playoff history, the Celtics and Cavaliers have played an all home team victories series, through four games.

In the eighth and as stated first competitive semi tilt, 8 point underdog Houston ended Golden State’s record 16 game playoffs home win skein.

16 is twice 8 and 32 is twice 16. The other two Celts/Cavs all home through 4 games series, were 32 years apart, in 1976 and 2008.

Boston won at home in #5 in the ’76 semis, before winning at Cleveland in game 6. In the ’08 “quarters,” it was an all home series, that Boston won in 7 games.

In both of those seasons, the Celtics went on to win the NBA title.
