Spring 2017 Day 13:
Results from Monday 24 April.
NBA
Milwaukee 93 @ Toronto 118; Toronto leads 3-games-2
Washington 101 @ Atlanta 111; series tied 2-games-all
Golden State 128 @ Portland 103; Golden State sweeps 4-games-nil
NHL
2017 NHL Quarterfinals commence Wednesday

Quite the Quarter:
The 45-point first quarter by the Golden State Warriors in their Game 4 in Portland against the Trailblazers breaks a best-of-7 NBA playoff game record for most first-quarter points on the road (43 points), set by the Philadelphia 76ers on the road against (ironically) the old San Francisco Warriors in Game 6 of the 1967 NBA Finals.

Peculiar Patterns:
Leading a best-of-7 NBA playoff series 3-games-2 (as they now do against the Milwaukee Bucks), the Toronto Raptors have a 0-3 Game 6 record. Tied 2-games-all (as they now are against the Atlanta Hawks), the Washington Wizards in best-of-7 NBA playoff series have either won Games 5-6 to win the series (once), or lost Games 5-6 to lose the series (twice).

Mirrored Outcomes:
Tied 2-games-all in a best-of-7 NBA playoff series, both the Los Angeles Clippers and the Utah Jazz 1) have a 2-4 series record, 2) lost the first two, the fourth, and the sixth of such series while winning the third and fifth of such series, 3) have a 1-5 Game 5 record, and 4) lost the first two and the last three Game 5s while winning the third Game 5. A remarkable congruence in performance by the two teams when knotted 2-games-all in a best-of-7 NBA playoff series.

Series Comeback of the Spring 2017 Season:
The New York Rangers and the Washington Capitals trailed 2-games-1 in their respective 2017 NHL Preliminary-round series, but rallied for series victories. In the history of best-of-7 MLB/NBA/NHL playoff series since 1905, inclusive, teams trailing 2-games-1 after three games had a series record of only 256-723 (.261).

Game Comeback of the Spring 2017 Season:
The in-game comeback of the Spring 2017 NHL/NBA playoff season thus far was achieved by the Cleveland Cavaliers in Indiana against the Pacers on 20 April. Cleveland trailed by 25 points at halftime, but won the game: In the history of best-of-7 format NBA playoff games since 1947, inclusive, road teams down 25 points at halftime had a game record of only 0-9 (.000). In other words: The 25-point halftime deficit is now the largest ever surmounted by a road team for a best-of-7 NBA playoff game victory.
