Best-of-7 series coverage since Spring 1999.

United We Stand: 9.11.01

Spring 2016 Day 68 and Last:
On Sunday 19 June in the NBA, the Cleveland Cavaliers visited and defeated the Golden State Warriors 93-pts-89 to win the 2016 NBA championship 4-games-3.

Daunting Deficit:
At halftime of 2016 NBA Finals Game 7, the visiting Cleveland Cavaliers trailed the Warriors in Golden State by seven points. In the history of best-of-7 NBA playoff games (all rounds) since 1947, inclusive, road teams down seven points at halftime had a game record of only 22-95 (.188).

Record Sum:
The sum of the victory margins from the seven games of the 2016 NBA Finals was 122 points, which sets a best-of-7 NBA playoff series record for the largest such sum in a Finals-round series.

Noteworthy Upset:
The 57-25 Cleveland Cavaliers trailed the 73-9 Golden State Warriors by sixteen regular-season games, yet prevailed in the 2016 NBA Finals. In the history of best-of-7 NBA playoff series since 1947, inclusive, teams which trailed their opponents by sixteen or more regular-season games had a 5-67 (.069) record against those opponents prior to the 2016 NBA Finals. The 2016 NBA Finals thus constitutes the largest best-of-7 NBA playoff series upset in terms of regular-season games differential since the 2007 NBA Preliminary round, in which the Golden State Warriors defeated the Dallas Mavericks despite finishing 25 regular-season games behind the Mavericks (the greatest such upset to date in those terms).

2016 NHL Playoffs:
The 2016 NHL playoffs required a total of 91 games to crown the Pittsburgh Penguins as the 2016 NHL champions. Those 91 games in 2016 are the third-most best-of-7 games in a single NHL playoff season, next to the 93 total games in 2014, and the 92 in 1991.

2016 NBA Playoffs:
The 2016 NBA playoffs required a total of 86 games to crown the Cleveland Cavaliers as the 2016 NBA champions. Those 86 games in 2016 are the most since the 2014 NBA playoff games required 89 games.

Series Comeback of the Season:
Through four games of the 2016 NBA Finals, the Cleveland Cavaliers trailed the Golden State Warriors 3-games-1 with Games 1-2 on the road and Games 3-4 at home, but rallied for the series victory. In the history of best-of-7 NBA playoff series since 1947, inclusive, teams trailing a best-of-7 NBA playoff series 3-games-1 with a site order of VVHH had a 1-145 (.007) series record prior to the Cleveland win in the 2016 NBA Finals.

Game Comeback of the Season:
The in-game comeback of the Spring 2016 NHL/NBA playoff season thus far was achieved by the Tampa Bay Lightning in New York against the Islanders on 03 May. Tampa trailed Game 3 of their series by a goal as late as 19:20 into the third period, but won the game: In the history of best-of-7 format NHL playoff games from 1939 through 2015, inclusive, road teams down a goal as late as 19:20 into the third period had a game record of only 14-569 (.024).
