Is it even possible to really lose a game 7 of the NBA Finals at home?

I know it has happened before and I know it has happened in the NHL and MLB, but can you really see it happening anymore in the NBA?

No....

The teams with HCA usually are the ones with the refs in their backpocket just in case the other team puts up a big fight.

And if the team w/o HCA is the team meant to win it all that year it won't go to 7.

Depends on who the league wants to win, not really a home court thing

I'm going to go with: "Yes". Why not? Teams get beaten at home all the time. It's rarer in the playoffs because the home court advantage is compounded by the fact that the better team will have HCA in a game 7. But of course it could happen.

21% of road teams have won game 7s in the playoffs. It's VERY rare to happen in the Finals (it's happened twice I think), but that doesn't mean it's impossible.

It has happened before. I don't get why this is a thread. Oh, yeah JB is just getting opinions that he can use to bash the HEAT if things happen in the future.

We are talking about a game 7 of the NBA Finals though. Not some random round and not some random team. If you got to the finals and you have HCA and you in game 7, then what makes you think the other team is actually better?

Usually both teams that make the Finals are pretty comparable when it comes to talent. That is why the game is played. Do you think there should be 6 games and if it is 3-3 then the team with HCA should be awarded the championship?

YES, if the HCA team has a proven winner as the man like Ben Wallace.

Exactly.

JB here are a couple steps you should follow before posting:

Step 1: Is this logical:
If Yes- Post
If No- Don't Post

Because they are in the Finals too. Its actually the opposite of what you said, if this were R.1 or something random, THEN having g7 is more likely to be indicative of that strength.

A 1 seed vs an 8th seed is a far easier G7 to win than 2 finalists going against each other is it not?

just like the 05 pistons and 2010 Celtics

JB,
What makes you think it might be impossible? What about the game has changed that make you think it can't happen anymore? Have the refs changed? Or the players? Or the strength of home-court? You need to actually give some idea what you're suggesting or it's pretty meaningless.


Regardless, no it isn't impossible. The 2010 Celtics led until the mid 4th, and were within 3 with almost a minute left. You'd have to have a pretty amazing argument - probably about some external controlling factor like the refs or whatever - to put forward that it was impossible for them to win at that point.
