NBA ‘offs Update

May 25, 2018

Seven and eleven are Las Vegas numbers and with first year Las Vegas in the NHL Final vs Washington and Justify to bid for the horse racing Triple Crown, surely NBC is happy.

Ah but the 7-11 does not stop there. If 7 point favorite Cleveland wins game 6 at home, in what has been an all home Boston/Cleveland NBA “semi” through 5 games, then there will be a game 7, Sunday night in Boston.

Add to that, if 11 point favorite Golden State (I guess the line people feel Chris Paul will not play for Houston), wins #6 at home Saturday night, there will be a game 7 Monday night, opposite the NHL final opener as was the case involving “G.S.” two years ago, in Houston on Monday night.

If both semis go to a seventh game, it will be the first time that has happened since 1979, which has the same calendar as this year.

Only twice in 60 previous possibilities (1958-2017, the other time 1963), have both NBA semis gone to a decisive seventh game.
