I know 9 teams in NBA history have come back to win a series after being down 3-1 in the playoffs, but how many managed to take it to 7, regardless of whether they won the series or not?

This has happened 31 times, courtesy mostly of Ps3FifaCfc95 of Reddit. This can be verified using Basketball Reference or any respectable NBA source.

A 3-1 deficit has been overcome 11 times.
