NBA – For the fourth time in Big League history, the Celtics snatched a Game 7 after trailing 3-0. But this time, they will have the advantage of playing it at home…
In any case, with their victory snatched in Miami during Game 6, Jayson Tatum and his teammates have already become the fourth team to snatch a Game 7 under these conditions.
Before that, there were thus only three occurrences:
– 1951 | Finals: Knicks force Game 7 against Rochester Royals
– 1994 | Conference semi-final: Nuggets force Game 7 against Jazz
– 2003 | First round: the Blazers force a Game 7 against the Mavericks
Ifference is that these three times, the Game 7 snatch was away, and the Rochester Royals, the Jazz of John Stockton and Karl Malone as well as the Mavericks of Dirk Nowitzki were able to avoid disaster at home .
The Celtics are therefore the first team to be able to completely overturn a series in front of their fans. This is not necessarily insurance because this version of Boston is crumbly at home, with a record of 5 wins for 5 losses at TD Garden in these playoffs, including a victory for two losses in this series against the Heat.
But for a Game 7, which is often played on details, public support can be a valuable factor.
