    My point is, was, and always shall be...............some very telling stats!!

    I've been writing something on this forum for well over a year now.  I thought I heard it or read it someplace, but I had no research or link to support my claim.  My claim - Home Court Advantage is the NBA is the biggest weapon in pro sports.  I made the claim that I had heard 70% of the time, the Home Team wins (in the playoffs anyway), and decided to conduct an experiment based upon last year.  Here is what I found:

    In the Regular Season last year (2009-2010) I took the 16 teams that made the playoffs.  They had a combined record of 479 and 180, which is 72.6% wins for the Home Team.

    In the Playoffs, the numbers were slightly off - 53 wins for the Home Team, 29 for the visitors - or 64.6%.

    Totals?  532 wins 209 losses for the Home Team, or 71.7%-  WOW!!

    I think the numbers would be higher if the Celtics didn't win so many on the road in the playoffs.

    That is one year, I know, but I think it is a very telling stat.  And that is why I am all in favor of pushing to get HCA in this years' playoffs!!

    Its funny how the numbers tend to support the impressions that folks have about the NBA today. Shape up NBA. Your fans aren't stupid.

    That all real nice and good. But if you get smoked on the glass against the Lakers, chances are, you are going to lose, no matter where the game is played.

    Game 1 Rebounds
    Lakers..42 Celtics..31
    Lakers win 102-89

    Game 2 Rebounds
    Lakers..39 Celtics..44
    Celtics win 103-94

    Game 3 Rebounds
    Lakers..43 Celtics..35
    Lakers win 91-84

    Game 4 Rebounds
    Lakers..34 Celtics..41
    Celtics win 96-89

    Game 5 Rebounds
    Lakers..34 Celtics..35
    Celtics win 92-86

    Game 6 Rebounds
    Lakers..52 Celtics..39
    Lakers win 89-67

    Game 7 Rebounds
    Lakers..53 Celtics..40
    Lakers win 83-79

    The team that rebounded better won every single time in this series, home or away.

    Can't agree more with the rebounding comment. Do you know how many of the rebounds for each team were offensive?

    You are correct.  For some reason, the stats stop at 2001.  My bad!

    I'd love to see the C's get homecourt but not at the expense of being healthy.

    This is a team with a lot of age to protect.  Let's get to the playoffs with an intact roster.

    The format did start in the mid 80's.  Our Fearless Leader thought that with the Celtics and Lakers playing 3 years in a row, it would be better for travel purposes.  And now, the Networks like it so they don't have to send their reporters across the country (or wherever) so many times.  In other words, it saves everyone $$, so it is here to stay, unfortunately!
