    If I'm not mistaken, I believe this was the first time a team won the NBA Finals after losing game 3 going down 2-1. I seem to remember this being a stat that was thrown around after game 3.

    Yes. But the qualification was the time since the NBA went to 2-3-2 system for home and away. I believe this is the 12th year of that pattern.

    The 2-3-2 finals format has actually been around since 1985. So there's still a qualification, but it's not quite as much of one.

    It seems the jokes will never stop.

    The Youtube video below contains some rather salty language... be warned.

    Talking All Teams or Just the Last Eleven?

    The "n" was 11 in the sample size the announcers quoted when noting that winners of game three in the NBA Finals had each won the championship. I thought I heard them say that "all teams winning game three" had been champions, not just "the last eleven teams."

    But I have been wrong before.

    Anyway, that streak is over.

    You are correct. Since the move to 2-3-2, 11 series had been tied 1-1. All 11 teams that won game 3 in those series went on to win the title. Dallas broke the mold. This was the 12th series to be tied 1-1, Dallas lost game 3 but won the series. Like u said, streak over.

    No, you read it correctly. I had missed the point that the statistics applied only to series that were 1-1 entering the third game. Therefore, it was way more than 11 years.
