Today’s Topic: First round series to go seven games
The NBA Playoffs are a magical time in the basketball universe as every game matters and each player gives it their all.
To honor the playoffs, this Thursday we look back at the 14 first-round series to go the full seven games (the first round expanded from a best-of-five to a best-of-seven format in 2003). Hopefully this year’s playoffs provide similar dramatics.
