Spring 2017 Day 17:
Results from Friday 28 April.
NBA
Boston 105 @ Chicago 83; Boston wins 4-games-2
Washington 115 @ Atlanta 99; Washington wins 4-games-2
Los Angeles Clippers 98 @ Utah 93; series tied 3-games-all NHL

Three-Quarter Rout:
The 29-point lead by the Boston Celtics over the Chicago Bulls after three quarters of their Game 6 was the largest best-of-7 NBA playoff game lead by a road team after three quarters in the Preliminary round since the Chicago Bulls themselves led the Bucks in Milwaukee by 39 points after three quarters of Game 6 of their 2015 NBA Preliminary-round series. Just as Chicago ousted Milwaukee via Game 6 of their 2015 NBA Preliminary-round series, so it was that Boston ousted Chicago via Game 6 of their 2017 NBA Preliminary-round series.

Game 7:
The Los Angeles Clippers will host the Utah Jazz in Game 7 of their 2017 NBA Preliminary-round series. The Los Angeles Clippers have a home-court Game 7 record of 2-0, while the Utah Jazz have a road-court Game 7 record of 1-2. In the history of best-of-7 MLB/NBA/NHL playoff series, teams such as the Los Angeles Clippers which post a win/site order of LWWLLW @ HHVVHV through six games have a Game 7 record of 6-0, but all six of those series occurred in the NHL. All else equal in NBA Game 7s, home teams have a 101-25 (.802) record.

Two in First Two:
Game 1 of the Pittsburgh Penguins - Washington Capitals series marks the third time in best-of-7 NHL playoff history and the second time in the 2017 NHL playoffs that a road team (Pittsburgh) broke a scoreless tie with two goals in the first two minutes of the second period - the Edmonton Oilers did likewise in San Jose against the Sharks in Game 6 of their 2017 NHL Preliminary-round series (series 1327).

2017 NBA Preliminary Round Redux:
Upon the completion of the Utah - Clippers series with Game 7 in Los Angeles on Sunday 30 April, the 2017 NBA Preliminary round will have required 44 games to complete. That is the same number of games required to complete the 2016 NBA Preliminary round.

Series Comeback of the Spring 2017 Season:
The Boston Celtics trailed 2-games-nil in their 2017 NBA Preliminary-round series, but rallied for the series victory. In the history of best-of-7 MLB/NBA/NHL playoff series since 1905, inclusive, teams trailing 2-games-nil had a series record of only 79-637 (.110).

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.
