The Oklahoma City Thunder, Memphis Grizzlies, Indiana Pacers, Atlanta Hawks, Los Angeles Clippers And Golden State Warriors Face Game 7′s On Saturday

2014 is the year of the Game 7 – in both the NHL and the NBA. The Stanley Cup Playoffs just finished up its First Round with three Game 7′s on Wednesday (two of which were historical, especially the L.A. Kings0-3 comeback over the San Jose Sharks).

This Saturday, for the first time ever, the NBA playoffs will be hosting three Game 7′s on the same day.

Not including those three upcoming games, the NBA postseason has seen 114 Game 7′s. Every franchise, but the Charlotte Bobcats, have played in at least one.

Here’s every franchise’s record and those with the most Game 7 wins and losses in a Sports List of the Day list trifecta.

Enjoy the games and the rest of the playoffs. Thanks for checking in.
