I know we all have pretended this moment on our local courts. Game 7 of the NBA Finals. 4th quarter down by a point with with about ten seconds left on the clock. Make or miss, realistically do you ever see this moment happening at all? I wonder what the mathematical odds are....

That's pretty much how the 88 finals ended. And just about the 2010 finals. The 1969 finals went to game 7 and was won by a single basket (Celtics/Lakers, Celtics won). Likewise in 1966 the Celtics beat the Lakers in game 7 by a baskets. The 1962 finals were even more exciting... won in overtimein game seven. 1957? Even more exciting... double overtime win for Boston over the Hawks, by a basket... And the year befofre that the Pistons lost to the Nationals by a point! So it has happened about 7 times in 60 odd years... some times in back-to-back seasons, sometimes not for decades!

I imagine it will happen again... when you get to that level of play, teams can be so evenly matched that the championship can go either way.
