NBA Playoffs: Teams with the Most Game 7 Wins on the Road
Only 17 teams have done it a total of 23 times.
Now, professional hockey has been around a lot longer than pro basketball. The NHL was started way back in 1917 (coming up on its 100th anniversary). The NBA (or BAA as it was called the first three years) got going in 1946.
Also, the NHL has been running seven-game series since 1930, more than a decade before the NBA was born. The NBA has had seven-game series in the postseason since the start.
