This is the history of ROAD RECORDS in the Playoffs.

http://www.nba.com/history/records/alltime_team_playoff_wl.html#Road


PLAYOFF ROAD RECORDS Team W L
Los Angeles Lakers 133 167 .443
Boston Celtics 97 135 .418
San Antonio Spurs 48 68 .414
New Jersey Nets 19 30 .388
Houston Rockets 41 66 .383
Chicago Bulls 49 79 .383
Philadelphia 76ers 74 125 .372
Milwaukee Bucks 38 65 .369
Indiana Pacers 29 51 .362
Phoenix Suns 40 71 .360
Detroit Pistons 55 101 .353
New York Knickerbockers 60 119 .335
Chicago Stags* 4 8 .333
Sacramento Kings 30 65 .316
Golden State Warriors 34 76 .309


Seems that a record of 33.3% is actually good on the road because it means you won 1 game out of 3 on the road.
This is why winning on the road is so tough and when you do, it should be commended. The team with the home court should win the series.


This is the home records

Interesting stuff. It's nice to see just how hard it is to win on the road in the playoffs quantified.

That's one of the main reasons why I have always said that the team that has homecourt advantage should win the series.

Unless of course you're the nets or timberwolves.

:laugh2:

Wolves and Nets both have a better road winning % than home winning %.

i see what your saying. But in a 7 game series. Going by these stats, you SHOULD win
1 outta 4 on the road if the series goes 7 right? I think when it comes down to Lakers, cleveland and boston; any of these teams can win anywhere, there just that good.

Yeah but those teams can easily win one on your court as well. That is why whomever has the HCA should win the series.
