Game 7:
When tied 3-games-all in a best-of-7 MLB/NBA/NHL playoff series, the Boston Celtics have a Game 7 record of 23-8, while the Cleveland Cavaliers have a Game 7 record of 4-2. The Boston Celtics have a 20-4 Game 7 record in Boston. The Cleveland Cavaliers have a 1-2 Game 7 record on the road (with the sole victory occurring at Golden State over the Warriors in the 2016 NBA Finals). The 31 Game 7 appearances irrespective of site, the 23 Game 7 wins irrespective of site, the 24 Game 7 home appearances, and the 20 Game 7 home victories by the Boston Celtics all top their respective categories in best-of-7 MLB/NBA/NHL playoff Game 7 history. Irrespective of win order or of round, home teams in best-of-7 NBA playoff Game 7s have a 104-26 (.800) record.

2018 NHL Finals:
The series page for the 2018 NHL Stanley Cup Finals is in work, pending outcomes in the 2018 NBA Semifinals. Look for this page on-line late Sunday night or early Monday morning. If the 2018 NBA Western Conference Finals end in six games, then the results from 1380 completed best-of-7 MLB/NBA/NHL playoff series will be factored into the historical victory probabilities for this page; else, the initial probabilities will be based on the 1378 completed series absent the 2018 NBA Semifinals. In due course, results from all 1380 completed series will drive all historical victory probabilities published for the 2018 NHL and NBA Finals as they unfold.

Sole Precedent:
The sole series loss by the Houston Rockets in the wake of a 3-games-2 best-of-7 NBA playoff series lead occurred in the 2007 NBA Preliminary round, in which the Rockets were defeated by the Utah Jazz in seven games. Houston sports a 7-1 series record when leading a best-of-7 NBA playoff series 3-games-2.

Game Comeback of the Spring 2018 Season:
The in-game comeback of the Spring 2018 NHL/NBA playoff season thus far was achieved by the Houston Rockets against the Warriors at Golden State on 22 May. Houston trailed Golden State 80-pts-70 after three quarters of their 2018 NBA Western Conference Finals Game 4, but rallied for the victory. In the history of best-of-7 NBA playoff games since 1947, inclusive, road teams down ten points after three quarters had a game record of only 1-75 (.013).

Series Comeback of the Spring 2018 Season:
The in-series comeback of the Spring 2018 NHL/NBA playoff season thus far was achieved by the Washington Capitals against the Columbus Blue Jackets in the 2018 NHL Preliminary round. Washington is the first Spring 2018 series winner to trail within a series by any games, let alone 2-games-nil.
