    Yeah, it's true.

    Of course, up until 2000, the Pacers never LOST a series after WINNIG the first game, but that didn't help us a damn bit in 2001, 2002, and 2004.

    And at one time it was true that we'd never lost a series in which we won Game #1. But thats not true anymore. Although I think there are only two series we've played in that the winner of Game #1 didn't win the series (Philly in 2001 and Detroit last year.)

    EDIT - and I see Hicks beat me to it and included the NJ series from which I couldn't remember if we 'stole' Game #1 or not.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    The team that wins Game 1 wins the series over 75% of the time.
