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:
- In what year were the most number of NBA playoff games played?
- 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).
