NBA: Los Angeles Lakers and Western Conference Finals Sweeps

Magic Johnson Played On Three Los Angeles Laker Teams That Swept The Western Conference Finals, Beginning With George Gervin And The San Antonio Spurs

Magic Johnson Played On Three Los Angeles Laker Teams That Swept The Western Conference Finals, Beginning With George Gervin And The San Antonio Spurs

The Los Angeles Lakers have swept the Western Conference Finals four times, and the San Antonio Spurs have done it twice. That’s six of the nine WCF sweeps since the conference format was adopted in 1970-71.

The Utah Jazz and Portland Trail Blazers pick up two of the other three sweeps.

And the now-Eastern Conference Milwaukee Bucks once swept a Western Conference Finals from the now-Eastern Conference Chicago Bulls.

Speaking of, what about the Eastern Conference and Eastern Conference Finals sweeps? We did that yesterday. There have been just five, including one this season. Take a look.

SEASON WINNER LOSER
1. 1973-74 Milwaukee Bucks Chicago Bulls
2. 1976-77 Portland Trail Blazers Los Angeles Lakers
3. 1981-82 Los Angeles Lakers San Antonio Spurs
4. 1986-87 Los Angeles Lakers Seattle SuperSonics
5. 1988-89 Los Angeles Lakers Phoenix Suns
6. 1997-98 Utah Jazz Los Angeles Lakers
7. 1998-99 San Antonio Spurs Portland Trail Blazers
8. 2000-01 Los Angeles Lakers San Antonio Spurs
9. 2012-13 San Antonio Spurs Memphis Grizzlies

NBA: Cleveland Cavaliers and Eastern Conference Finals Sweeps

LeBron James Led The 2014-15 Cleveland Cavaliers To The Fifth Sweep In Eastern Conference Finals History

LeBron James Led The 2014-15 Cleveland Cavaliers To The Fifth Sweep In Eastern Conference Finals History

Since the NBA divided itself into Eastern and Western Conferences with the 1970-71 season, only five teams out of the East have swept their conference’s Finals, and LeBron James‘ 2014-15 Cleveland Cavaliers are the fifth.

Larry Bird‘s Boston Celtics did it in 1985-86.

Two of Michael Jordan‘s six titles with the Chicago Bulls were preceded by Eastern Conference Finals sweeps.

And the most unlikely team on today’s list? Jason Kidd‘s 2002-03 New Jersey Nets swept the Detroit Pistons (the only team to be swept more than once in the ECF).

One more thing about the Bulls. They were actually swept in the Western Conference Finals once upon a time.

Check out the nine WCF sweeps tomorrow.

SEASON WINNER LOSER
1. 1985-86 Boston Celtics Milwaukee Bucks
2. 1990-91 Chicago Bulls Detroit Pistons
3. 1995-96 Chicago Bulls Orlando Magic
4. 2002-03 New Jersey Nets Detroit Pistons
5. 2014-15 Cleveland Cavaliers Atlanta Hawks
