Game Seven Stats

So we've got a game seven in the NBA Finals.  With the exception of Celtics fans, most of us are pretty happy about that.  Tomorrow night's game should be one for the ages.

We wondered how many NBA Finals have gone to seven games, and in those games, how often has the road team pulled off the upset.  Here's what we found (home team in bold):

1950 - 51  Royals over Knicks

1951 - 52 Lakers over Knicks

1953 - 54 Lakers over Nationals

1954 - 55 Nationals over Pistons

1956 - 57 Celtics over Hawks

1959 - 60 Celtics over Hawks

1961 - 62 Celtics over Lakers

1965 - 66 Celtics over Lakers

1968 - 69 Celtics over Lakers

1969 - 70 Knicks over Lakers

1973 - 74 Celtics over Bucks

1977 - 78 Bullets over Sonics

1983 - 84 Celtics over Lakers

1987 - 88 Lakers over Pistons

1993 - 94 Rockets over Knicks

2004 - 05 Spurs over Pistons


So to summarize, there have been 16 game sevens in the history of the NBA Finals.  Of those 16 games, the road team has only won 3 times.

So how are you feeling Celtics fans?  Can the guys in green beat the odds tomorrow night?  It happened once, in 1969, can it happen again?
