United We Stand: 9.11.01

Spring 2017 Day 44:
Results from Thursday 25 May.
NBA
Cleveland 135 @ Boston 102; Cleveland wins 4-games-1
NHL
Ottawa 2 @ Pittsburgh 3 (2OT); Pittsburgh wins 4-games-3

Taking the Weekend Off:
Days 45-47 (Friday through Sunday) of the Spring 2017 playoff season are off-days, with the NHL opening their 2017 Finals on Day 48 (Monday 29 May) and the NBA opening their 2017 Finals on Day 51 (Thursday 01 June). Series pages for the 2017 NBA and NHL Finals are in work.

Overall Differential:
Cleveland outscored Boston in the 2017 NBA Semifinals (Eastern Conference Finals) by 100 total points, which is the third-largest total series point differential in best-of-7 NBA playoff series history (next only to the 121-point differential by the Denver Nuggets over the old New Orleans Hornets in their 2009 NBA Preliminary-round series, and the 101-point differential by the Orlando Magic over the Atlanta Hawks in their 2010 NBA Quarterfinals series).

Record Road Differential:
Cleveland outscored the Celtics in Boston by 90 points in their just-concluded series - the largest total series point differential by a road team ever in best-of-7 NBA playoff series history (breaking the old record of 72 such points, set by the Los Angeles Lakers over the old San Francisco Warriors in their 1969 NBA Quarterfinals series, won by the Lakers in six games).

Game 7 Redux:
The Game 7 record of the Ottawa Senators (irrespective of site), already a best-of-7 MLB/NBA/NHL-worst at 0-5, fell to 0-6 in the wake of Ottawa's Game 7 loss to Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh wins a Game 7 in an NHL Semifinals series for the second consecutive season.

Double Digits:
Most consecutive wins from the start of an NBA/NHL playoff season, best-of-7 format for four rounds: 12, by the Golden State Warriors (breaking the NBA/NHL record of 11, set by the Golden State Warriors in Game 3 of their NBA Semifinals [Western Conference Finals] against the San Antonio Spurs).

Series Comeback of the Spring 2017 Season:
The Boston Celtics trailed the Chicago Bulls 2-games-nil in their 2017 NBA Preliminary-round series, but rallied for the series victory. This feat was duplicated by the Anaheim Ducks, which trailed the Edmonton Oilers 2-games-nil in their 2017 NHL Quarterfinals series but won the series in seven games. 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 Anaheim Ducks, at home against the Edmonton Oilers on 05 May. Anaheim trailed by three goals as late as 16:43 into the third period, but won the game: In the history of best-of-7 format NHL playoff games from 1939 through 2016, inclusive, home teams down by three goals as late as 16:43 into the third period had a game record of 0-212 (.000).
