Teams That Have Come Back from 3-0 To Win in Game 7
The Los Angeles Lakers got pounded (and swept) by the Dallas Mavericks 122-86 Sunday in Game 4 of their Western Conference Semifinals series. The Mavericks will face either the Oklahoma City Thunder or Memphis Grizzlies in the Western Conference Finals.
The Lakers, on the other hand, go home. It is most likely the last time we will see coach Phil Jackson on the Lakers’ sideline.
In fact, only five American sports teams have ever come back to win a series after being down 3-0.
