    1985 Finals - Did the 2-3-2 format kill Boston that season?

    As everyone knows in 1985 the 2-3-2 format was developed for the NBA Finals. The season before in the 1984 finals the Celtics played the Lakers and while the series was tied up 2-2 (having the 2-2-1-1-1) format the Celtics won game 5 to take a 3-2 series lead as game 5 was at home.

    In 1985 the series was 2-2 but this time the Celtics had to play game 5 on the road. Now it is true games 6 and 7 would have been in Boston, but does anyone think the new format killed Boston in this series because they were not used to having to play a game 5 on the road in the finals knowing they had HCA?
