What's the maximum number of games at the playoff phase in NBA?

I was checking out the playoff bracket the other day and I realised that a significant number of the games (in the first round) went up to the 7th game. Considering that there are 15 series in total x 7 matches the theoretical maximum is 105 matches. (In parallel with that, the theoretical minimum would be 15 x 4 = 60 matches).

Doing a quick calculation, I noticed that so far 72 games were played with 3 match-ups remaining.

So re-iterating my questions:

1. In what year were the most number of NBA playoff games played?
2. How many total games were played during that year's playoffs?

EDIT: Now that the 2014 playoffs are over, the total number of games has turned out to be 89 (if I am not mistaken).

• I don't know -- but it's almost definitely since 2003. There have been 16 qualifying teams for the playoffs since 1984 but from '84 to '02 the first round was a best three-out-of-five series. Since 2003, the first round, like the second, third, and fourth, has been a best four-out-of-seven series. This change would create the possibility for up to an extra sixteen games.
