View Full Version : Hope for the Pistons and Spurs? My NBA playoff theory

This will be short.

In a playoff series where the two teams are basically even, and I believe the Lakers v Spurs, Pistons v Nets, and T-Wolves v Kings are all even series.

OK here is my theory, that I believe.

Usually each team wins one road game. That has already happened in the Kings v T-Wolves series. Look for the T-Wolves to win in 7.

The Lakers, and Nets have now done it, so now it is the Pistons and Spurs turn to win a road game. We'll see if my theory holds any water.


I have a lot of these NBA playoff theories

Me too. But not game 7. (Although last year's battle against the Magic comes to mind).

UB, I like your theory

but where is the evidence, are you basing this off of past series?
or is this something brand new that only applies to this years playoffs?

I am basing this off past series.


let's just look at past Pacers series over the years.

Only 7 game series, and only close series.

1994. ECF. Pacers won once in NY, Knicks won once here.

1995 Eastern conference semifinals. Agaisnt the Knicks. Pacers won twice in NY, Knicks won once in Indy.

1995 ECF Orlando. Home teams won every game.

1998 ECF. Bulls Home teams won every game.

1999 ECF. Knicks. NY won twice in Indy, Pacers won once in NY.

2000 ECF Knicks. Pacers won once in NY. Knicks did not win in indy.

it happens more times than not.

That is why I think it is a myth that if the team that starts a series with the homecourt advantage loses a home game everyone says they lost homecourt advantage, well I say they have lost their one home game, now all they have to do is win their one road game that they are going to win anyway.

Another theory, that is related.

If teams are even. The team that does not have homecourt advantage has to win 2 road games. The team with homecourt advantage only has to win one road game.

I truly believe Pistons will win Game 6 - and then bring it home to take the series - they are determined.
