United We Stand: 9.11.01

2018 MLB Redux:
The 2018 MLB playoffs required 17 games in best-of-7 format to crown the 2018 MLB champion Boston Red Sox. The 17 total best-of-7 playoff games in the 2018 MLB playoffs are the fewest such games since 15 best-of-7 playoff games were required to crown an MLB champion in the 2015 MLB playoffs.

2018 NBA Redux:
The 2018 NBA playoffs required 82 games to crown the 2018 NBA champion Golden State Warriors, up from 79 last season. The nine total games in the 2018 NBA and NHL Finals are the fewest in the Spring Finals since 2007, in which only nine total Finals games were also played. In 1995 and 1983, both the NBA and the NHL Finals ended in four-game sweeps.

2018 NHL Redux:
The 84 total games required to crown the 2018 NHL champion Washington Capitals are the fewest in an NHL playoff season since 2007, when only 81 total games were played in the NHL playoff season of that year.

Game Comeback of the Fall 2018 Season:
The in-game comeback of the Fall 2018 MLB playoff season thus far was achieved by the Boston Red Sox against the Dodgers at Los Angeles on 27 October. The Red Sox trailed the Dodgers 4-runs-nil after six full innings of 2018 World Series Game 4, but rallied for the victory. In the history of best-of-7 MLB playoff games since 1905, inclusive, road teams down four runs after six full innings had a game record of only 1-68 (.014).

Series Comeback of the Fall 2018 Season:
The in-series comeback of the Fall 2018 MLB playoff season thus far was achieved by the Los Angeles Dodgers against the Milwaukee Brewers in the 2018 MLB Semifinals round. Los Angeles trailed at one point 2-games-1 without home-field advantage, but prevailed.

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 Cleveland Cavaliers against the Boston Celtics in the 2018 NBA Semifinals round. Cleveland trailed 2-games-nil and 3-games-2 without home-court advantage at separate times in the series, but prevailed. The Cleveland series victory reduced the Boston best-of-7 NBA playoff series record to 37-1 in the wake of a 2-games-nil series lead.
