【Guide】News on April 23, In NBA history, the team with a 2-0 lead wins the series
The probability is as high as 93.9%.
The Rockets are now 2-0 ahead of the Mavericks. The situation is obviously very optimistic, but the Rockets can’t forget: In the previous two 2-0 leading situations, the Rockets were overturned and eventually lost the series.
Now that the Mavericks have various unfavorable situations, and the Rockets have many players with experience in the finals, this time the great situation must not be missed!
The Rockets were overturned 2-0 twice
As of last season, there have been 261 times in NBA history where the playoff series led 2-0, of which 245 times the team with a 2-0 lead finally won the series.
The Rockets have led 2-0 in a playoff series 10 times, eight of which have resulted in the Rockets winning the series.
Do these numbers get more optimistic the more you experience them?
The Rockets should still be more cautious-the last two series started 2-0, and the Rockets were eventually overturned by their opponents.
Among the two times of being overturned, the Rockets were most impressed by the 2004-05 season. The opponent of the Rockets in the first round of the playoffs was also the Mavericks. At that time, the Rockets scored 2-0 in the first two away games.
But then it was overturned by the Mavericks.
In the 2006-07 season, the Rockets’ opponent in the first round of the playoffs was the Jazz. At that time, the Rockets also scored 2-0 in the first two home games.
Those two overturns were almost the biggest “label” of the Rockets during Yao Mai’s period, which is extremely regrettable.
Now that the Rockets have gained a 2-0 advantage again, can they do more than three things?
This time the Rockets do have a good chance, or they must seize the opportunity.
The Mavericks have reported that the two starters, Parsons and Rondo, will miss the rest of the series.
In the first two games, Howard established a clear advantage over the Mavericks. Corey Brewer scored 13 points in the final quarter of the first game, and Josh Smith sent 7 assists in the final quarter of the second game.
Advantages; The striking establishment of these advantages is obviously more exciting for the Rockets than the score of 2-0.
In the current lineup of the Rockets, Terry, Corey Brewer and Trevor Ariza have won championships. Harden and Howard, the “two cornerstones”, have both played in the finals. Looking at the Rockets from the perspective of experience
Accidental mishaps should also be avoided.
“If you’ve been to the Finals, it’s a feeling that draws you back, and I’d love to experience that feeling again,” Howard said. “What we’re going to do is play game after game.
We all have to keep going tomorrow.”
Terry helped the Mavericks comeback against the Rockets in the 2004-05 playoffs, and now Terry wants to help the Rockets avoid being overturned.
“We obviously know the importance of the third game. If you want to do something special, you have to win away from home. This is our good chance.” Terry said.
The third game is already a “must win” for the Mavericks. The Rockets will never be easy in the away game, but the Rockets should also have confidence-the Rockets have an away record of 26 wins and 15 losses in the regular season this season, ranking second in the league’s away record
