Spring 2020 Day 46:
Results from Sunday 27 September.
NHL
No game Sunday.
NBA
Miami Heat host, defeat Boston Celtics 125-pts-113

Streakiness after Sunday:
In best-of-7 NBA playoff action, the Miami Heat extend their Game 6 winning streak to five, while the Boston Celtics see their Game 6 losing streak increase to five. In best-of-7 NBA playoff series, the Miami Heat extend their Semifinals series winning streak to six series, while the Boston Celtics see their Semifinals series losing streak increase to four series.

Noteworthy Comeback:
In 2020 NHL Finals Game 5, the Dallas Stars trailed their pseudo-host Tampa Bay Lightning by a goal as late as 13:14 into the third period, but won. In the history of best-of-7 NHL playoff games from 1939 through 2019, inclusive, road teams down a goal as late as 13:14 into the third period had a game record of only 78-641 (.108) - the Dallas Stars thus achieve a grade-B in-game comeback.

Noteworthy Precedent:
Only once in nine tries have the Dallas Stars surmounted a 3-games-2 deficit for a best-of-7 NHL playoff series victory. The sole occurrence was in the 1999 NHL Semifinals, in which Dallas defeated the Colorado Avalanche 4-games-3, en route to the 1999 NHL championship.

Reigning Series Comeback and Encore:
On Tuesday 01 September, the Denver Nuggets became the first NBA team to surmount a 3-games-1 deficit for a 4-games-3 victory in a best-of-7 NBA playoff series since the Cleveland Cavaliers did so to win the 2016 NBA Finals. In the history of best-of-7 NBA playoff series beginning in 1947, teams such as Denver which trailed 3-games-1 had a series record of only 11-242 (.043); so it is that Denver achieves a grade-A series comeback (and the best to date in best-of-7 Spring 2020 NBA/NHL playoffs). ENCORE: Denver then rallies from a 3-games-1 deficit to defeat the Los Angeles Clippers and advance to the NBA Semifinals for the first time since 2009. The Nuggets join the 1985 Kansas City Royals as the only MLB/NBA/NHL teams to rally from more than one 3-games-1 deficit in the same playoff season.

Reigning In-Game Comeback:
On Sunday 13 September, the Denver Nuggets trailed the pseudo-visiting Los Angeles Clippers by 16 points as late as after two quarters in Game 6 of their 2020 NBA Quarterfinals series, but prevailed. In the history of best-of-7 NBA playoff games from 1947 through 2020, inclusive, home teams down 16 points as late as after two quarters had a game record of only 0-11 (.000) - the Denver Nuggets thus achieve a grade-A in-game comeback.
