Since the advent of the 2-3-2 format, not a single team defended their home court for all 3 of games; 3,4 and 5. Twice an away team has won those games (both times it was the Pistons, first in 1990 and again in 2004). Not even the Bulls could pull it off in 1993 when it would have meant winning the title on their home court.

That said, these type of trivial things don't usually count for much, and the OKC Thunder are in a deep hole right now, but I just thought I throw this one out there.


Thoughts?

2004 Pistons
2006 Heat

2001 Lakers won all 3 road games on Philly's home court.
2004 Pistons were at home when they did it, not away.

Am I the only one here, who feels that Miami is going to blow-out OKC in G.5? I think the Thunder team has given up (maybe minus Durant, but one guy can't beat a whole team... in most cases lol)

Your threads are probably the most flawed I've ever seen. You never seem to have your history correct.

The 2004 Pistons against the Lakers and 2006 Heat against the Mavs defended their home turf successfully in games 3, 4 & 5. Pistons won the title while the Heat took a 3-2 lead.

The 2001 Lakers were the last team in recent history to have won the 3 road games of games 3, 4 and 5 @ Philadelphia to repeat as Champions.


Your threads are always flawed, especially in your bait to bring down the Heat or LeBron James.

Just stop, it's embarrassing.

As other people have said, the 04 Pistons and 06 Heat did it. I'll never forget 06.

What???

Didn't the Heat won all three home games in 2006?

Lebron's monthly cramps is nothing to worry about :D

I honestly don't think Miami is going to crumble. Remember when so many people were saying how screwed they were for losing game 5 at home to Boston? Even if they mess this one up, they'll have two more games (although on the road) to take OKC down. Also, with two of the 3 best players in the league on the team.. OKC is going to have a huge problem shutting them down for three straight games.

OKC is very young. Although Harden probably will be better, Westbrook will probably be worse. But we will see right? lol

Might want to check your facts if you're going to make a thread about 'history'.
