# NBA 7 game playoff series where every game was won by the road team?

I have only ever come across this 5-game series (1984 ECR1, NJN vs PHI, NJN win 3-2), where the road team won every game.

Has this ever happened in a 7-game series?

(In recent memory, one series in which the first 4 games were won by the road team was HOU vs DAL, 2005, WCR1. But the next 3 games were won by the home team.)

Since the inception of the NBA, 114 game sevens have been played. Of those, only 23 game sevens have been won by the road team.

Of those 23 series 4 of those have had 5 road wins, but none have had 7 road wins (6 road wins is not possible for this scenario)

1974 Boston @ Milwaukee 5 road wins

1981 Houston @ San Antonio 5 road wins

2005 Indiana @ Boston 5 road wins

It is possible that there were 6 road wins in a playoff series and the home team finally won in game 7, but the answer to your question would still be no.

For clarification, how is six road wins not possible? – ᴍᴀsᴛᴇʀᴍɪɴᴅ_ᴇᴅ Apr 29 '14 at 13:19
It's possible if the home team wins the final game, but if the 7th game is won by the road team there could not have been 5 previous road wins (because the other win would have also been on the road) – Matt Busche Apr 29 '14 at 13:26
In either format (2-3-2) or (2-2-1-1-1), the road team can win every game. What prevents this from happening? Does home field change based on who wins? – ᴍᴀsᴛᴇʀᴍɪɴᴅ_ᴇᴅ Apr 29 '14 at 13:27
Yes, I never said the road team could not win every game, but if the road team wins game 7 it's only possible that there were 1, 3, 5 or 7 road wins in the series. You can't have 6 road wins if game 7 is won by the road team. – Matt Busche Apr 29 '14 at 13:43
That's where I was missing your point. It can happen, but not if the road team wins every game. Thanks for clearing that up. – ᴍᴀsᴛᴇʀᴍɪɴᴅ_ᴇᴅ Apr 29 '14 at 13:48
