How many home teams have won game 4 after being down 0-3? A friend is saying it never happens. I disagree, it must happen sometimes.

  • By "never happens", does your friend actually mean "has never happened" or "happens very rarely"? – Philip Kendall May 7 '17 at 20:59
  • It should be easy enough to look up. – paparazzo May 7 '17 at 22:53
  • You might have a look at some of the games listed in the Wikipedia articles Game seven and List of NBA game sevens. – Martin May 8 '17 at 5:42
  • And even just trying to Google might give you a few resources where you might find such series. For example, by searching for nba comeback from 0-3. – Martin May 8 '17 at 6:15
